Re: MOT Exemption.

Vic,
A further update.
I checked up on the DVLA site last night with my car's registration pending return of an updated V5. It shows that it is taxed for the year commencing 1 April 2021 & that "No Results Returned " in respect of MOT as per your last post on 3 April.
Cheers,
Charles

Re: Radio and speakers

Yes, the speaker wire is attached to a clip as per the photo.(Apologies for orientation). (Note the wiring colour is not original as i threaded in new wiring when i upgraded the door speakers some years ago as the spade connectors at the speaker ends were a different size to the originals (if i reme...

Re: Ballast Resistor location

Hi Mike, Thanks for your advice. I have used AES before & purchased a few in line fuse holders before from them ( used one during my under bonnet refurbishment to install a fuse for the overdrive where the 3 harnesses meet on the inner front wing). Given the danger of wires getting chafed where ...

Re: Ballast Resistor location

Hi Mike, There were certainly many changes to the wiring harnesses over the years, never mind the variants for overseas. It isn't helped by the fact that not every change was necessarily recorded on the wiring diagrams that are available. Indeed some have discrepancies including omissions & colo...

Guys, I note that Dave quite understandably wanted to close the starter motor & starting issue topic. I have seen Michael's last photo at the front of the engine bay looking towards the engine from the right hand side. At the risk of being pedantic ,that wiring is not as originally set up. The o...
