The sensor for the display on the dashboard is a single wire, and an earthed body but that doesn't control the fans.


Thanks. :wink:

Re: Insurance claim and bongo parts - canada

I would just make the body shop aware that if they do remove, or disconnect, the rear heater the cooling system must be bled, as in the videos. They may not need to touch it, and the problem, as Ian has said, is garages don't like being given advice, and they are very unlikely to watch the videos, o...

Re: Mattress (or similar) for reversed rear seats

Stanley knife. :wink: These are only the small kneeling mats, I just cut a small one to size then the sort of double size one to go on top. I guess glueing them together would be good, and for more than a night or two I roll out a cheap kip mat over the two. :) This sort of thing: https://www.thebra...

Re: Fully draining coolant

Bung: A kind of stopper, a bribe, to place something carelessly - bung your coat there, a flippant comment - I'll bung that in the conversation.

Re: Gaining more legroom in the drivers seat

Don't know anyone local, but New Dawn Conversions, West Mids, do the swivel seats, and are very well thought of here, and Celtic Conversions, Caerphilly, are well known and liked.

Ed was a regular on here for a long time. :wink:

Re: Mattress (or similar) for reversed rear seats

Our seats aren't reversed so no gap, but I use two bits of foam kneeling mat each side, one large, one small, cut to fit the contours. Sort of thing you get in the discount stores and garden centres. They do ok for the odd night, but a kip mat over that helps for longer stays. I also sleep on the fr...

Hi. :)

Don't forget you will need to bleed the system if the coolant level drops below the header tank. :wink:

Re: Anyone in Clitheroe?

Good sense.

I've watched it done, but I'm not sure I'd be confident enough to try it alone.

As you say, the possible consequences are horible to contemplate.

Re: Gaining more legroom in the drivers seat

People have fitted MX5 seats, but I can't remember who, or what difference it made. Sorry that's not too helpful.
