Re: Overdrive cutting off

Hi Paul, I don't know as I only used it in fourth gear but will have to try that if all else fail! Does it come in if you pull the gear stick towards you ? If so then its the inhibitor switch on the gearbox which stops you engaging when in 1st and 2nd. You might have to take out a fibre washer from ...

Re: Spark plug socket

Thanks, All makes sense! The socket I have got is 20mm ( at least that's what I worked out by measuring the inside diameter with a ruler 🙄🙂 ) so I am guessing 21mm will be ok. While i got your attention, i need to readjust the passenger door but haven't got a posidrive screwdriver. Do you know which...

Spark plug socket

Hi, I need to buy some spark plug socket but don't know what size to get. How do I work out the size of the socket I need? The plugs were put in by the previous owner so I don't know which one they are. I've got a socket but it is just too small, Do I measure the diameter and get one the next size up?

Re: Factory record copy Personal Export Delivery

I don't think mine left england, it was first registered in Birmingham. I might write to the DVLA to see if I can find out who the previous owners where.

Re: gap between window and seal

Thanks Tom,
I had a look this morning, seems that I am missing that part and what is there is broken. Should have taken a picture! Always forget to do that. Yes, I am mystified too as why the door doesn't close with either seals. Need to get a polydrive screwdriver to adjust the door.
