  1. It is usually located in the centre of the dash. There is a housing with the Hazard Warning and Fog Lamp switch and warning lights. The relay should be situated behind the two piece panel/housing. At least that's where mine is in my '84 2.25 petrol 88".
  2. Maybe some kind of brake too? I suppose it is possible that there is one somewhere, if there is I don't see it, though.
  3. Pretty sure I've heard good things about them.
  4. Could be the photo or the lighting, but that paint doesn't appear original to me. Apologies if I'm wrong, it just seems a bit off somehow?

    Yep, fog lamp. it goes to the centre of the dash as that is where the switch and warning lamp would normally reside. Regards, Mark.
  6. Anderzander, it's the correct plate and 'O' ring. As you say, expensive for what it is, but hopefully it will seal correctly.
  7. Just to confirm, the plug which Ralph suggested - RTC6851 with copper washer 213961 - is the correct one to block off the oil cooler ports on a 200TDi oil filter housing. Thanks Ralph. Regards, Mark.
  8. Ralph, I've ordered the parts you have identified.
  9. Ralph, thank you for the reply. If you have a look at the attached photos, it appears that the port does have a concave seat in the bottom. If you do have something suitable, I would be more than willing to buy it from you if you would be willing to post it to me. regards, Mark.
  10. Hello all. I am in the process of replacing the paper element type oil filter housing on my 2.25 petrol with a cartridge type oilf filter housing from a 200 TDi. I need to blank off the oil cooler ports, one of which there is a blanking plate and 'O' ring for. I have the balnking plate and 'O' ring and have blanked the relevant port off. I am looking for a blanking plug for the other port. I was under the impression it was M20x1.5. However, I have obtained an M20x1.5 blanking plug but it doesn't seem correct, it goes in about 4 or 5 threads and then tightens up. It seems to me that the thread is incorrect, the diameter seems 'about' right though. Does anyone know the correct thread size? Here's a picture by way of explanation. The port in question is highlighted by the red arrow. Thanks in advance, Mark.
  11. I fitted GB Parabolics to my Series 3, I asked them for their recommendation with regards to dampers. Their advice was that standard dampers were good enough if you use the vehicle mainly on road and would suffice for leisurely off roading, say green laning. My car is currently not in use, but the little bit of driving I've done so far suggests the ride is going to be quite 'bouncy'. I honestly can't say whether it is any worse than it would be with standard springs, the last time I had a series in regular use was about 19 years ago. I think I may end up investing in some better dampers but I need to use the vehicle properly before I can make that decision. Regards, Mark
  12. The date comes after the DOT code, which is actually a requirement for the North American market. It appears on the sidewall of one side of the tyre, jsut above the wheel rim line. Looks like this. As ou can see, the tyre was manufactured in the 12th week of 2020.
