Sooty The Yellow Exige 350 Sport

Recommended Posts

Yellow wasn’t any first choice when looking to purchase a Lotus but it has soon become my favourite colour.

There’s a good reason why this car was originally designed with a closed rear glass window ;)

Cruise control stalk next then ?

Is this as simple as adding the cruise control stalk from DeRoure?

I think you'll need a visit to a dealer for them to activate the cruise in the ECU using the Tech Centre.

As above, on my Club Racer, I changed the stalk myself & Williams programmed it & cut the roof slots for me for about an hours labour.

I did my first long journey in the Lotus this bank holiday weekend and tbh it was a enjoyable and the time flew by. 

Whilst in Leeds on Monday it snowed, fast forward 24 hours back home int Leamington Spa and it's 12 degrees and with a bit of spare time, I decided to remove the hardtop roof.

I’ve got a very annoying squeak/ creak coming from the passenger side arounds the plastic trim area. I’ve try a few time now to source the issue. But failed to identify the culprit. I originally thought it was the roof but it happens with the roof off. I also thought it was the area where ther rear clam and bodyside meet but I tried fixing this with no results. Any suggestions on fixing it?

 

I've just booked it into the dealers so but can't fit me in until first sat in June! 

 

Other than that no much much has changed, just the usual wash, polish & wax.

I get sounds all the time. First was behind my seat, sounded like the paneling around the rear window. Then the sound went. Then when i removed the roof and put it back on i started getting sounds from my roof. They're annoying but don't think there is much that can be done about it.

These sounds /squeak/ creak come and go by themselves ... it's unbelievable ... every now and then you discover a new one ... from who knows where ... :(

So last night I quickly put several pieces of card around the area and it's stopped! :D 

A temporary fix until it goes into Lotus, I've also noticed the boot lid has now managed to miss align itself. Is there a easy fix for this or shall I get the dealer to take a look at it while it's booked in?

@DT 350 how did you get the front number plate bracket off? 

I can see two screws underneath between the plate and splitter but they just turn.

any help appreciated.

Two screws under splitter, the two scrivits, these just spin for me too, so pride out with a small flat head screwdriver and the just pop out. Chubby fingers would struggle

yeh this is correct but when refitting I now only use the two below the splitter as these are secure enough.
