Re: Help - EDIS failure in Weymouth

Sorry for your misfortune Chris, I always carry a spare unit with a coilpack in the trunk just in case.
Can you detail more where exactly you have mounted the unit?
I have it mounted on the lower frame just in front of the air filter drums.

Re: Boot release will not open?

I faced exactly the same misery on a tour in Burgundy couple of years back: a plastic shopping bag had been caught in the catch when closing the lid and preventing the catch from completing the opening swing when the cable was pulled. I have tried a coathanger wire as Simon is recommending but it di...

Bonnet opening at speed

One would think that with speed, the unlatched bonnet of an E would be pushed down by wind force.

First aid kit

Has anyone seen such a first aid kit before? In Belgium it has been compulsory to have a first aid kit in the car since decades, and dealers used to supply these with every new car, lodged in the glovebox. https://s15.postimg.cc/c7kqfunrf/fak1.png https://s15.postimg.cc/ggpgi9r3f/fak2.png

Re: soft top frame colour

Mine was blue-greyish, btw I dont understand why they had selected this colour, changed to satin black which is for me much more appealing (no concours concerns for me).

Re: Knock on rear end (sounds painfull)

Phil, this is the correct bolt. It has to be tightened really tight or else you will have a movement giving a clear audible clonk and also a knock which you can feel. Had the same after driving a while newly fitted radius arms, it seems they need to bed-in a bit and retightened.

Hi Georg, hope you will be back on the road soon. Such events add a little spice to the journey. :bigrin: Did you see the alternator/ignition light staying on while driving?
