  8. Hi All, Got my dash apart today to put a raptor dash in and thought I would look at my heater switch while I was at it.....................šŸ™„ My control switch feels really tight moving up and down in the mid position and also only has full speed on the switch so thought I would clean up the switch and grease the mechanism. I have taken it apart and cleaned the switch (drilled out the rivets and used plastic electrical nuts and bolts to out it back together) so that's fine (yet to test it though). However, with the cable to the heater box disconnected the mechanical arm stil
  9. Just to vent share some love from today, why are the clips that hold the Bowden cables on such a %xjg%%% šŸ„µ to come off!!!

  10. Hi Ian, Have a good search on the forum, there are some lengthy threads on this already. HTH Cheers G
  11. Love this thread, I told my son jokingly over Xmas (he's 19) in front of his mum that I had been spending a lot of time with my mistress recently (he obviously looked shocked) and that she was high maintenance but also really dirty (he then looked appalled). His face was a picture when it dawned on him that I was pulling his leg as I put my padded overalls on to work on my "mistress" out on the drive. šŸ™‚
  12. I cant remember the threads for the various bolts (have a look on the manuals HERE) but you should get them readily nearby (if you can identify them as metric screwfix may even have them) The alternator support bracket is for tension yes, the hinge bolt for the alternator which is quite long also gets tightened up once your at the right tension. G
  13. So the alternator tension should be fairly straight forward as per my previous (hope that makes sense?) For the power steering and fan belt the tension is adjusted by the plate on the PS pump. NOT the Cast Iron mount (in the red square box you obviously need a new bolt in their. To adjust the tension on the pump you loosen the three bolts on the plate behind the pully (green squares) and using a 1/2 drive in the open square hole you tension the belt by pushing up/down on the plate and then lock off the the three pump bolts. Hope that makes sense? ATB G
