Re: Spare wheel

Neil, in my S2 it's dish up as the hold down bolt (do you have one?) is too short to fit the other way around. Is a lack of hold down bolt the reason yours is unstable? :shrug:

Re: Upper wishbone gaiter

Gentlemen, thank you all. All sorted and used locking wire to secure, let's see how it goes.
I've done a fair amount of safety wire locking in my time but this was certainly a slippery fellow :roll:

Re: Upper wishbone gaiter

Hi Steve, the wishbones are originals which have had only the inner cup machined to accept the plastic insert into which the balljoint fits. No other changes.
I’ve had this same problem with older wishbones hence asking now I’m fitting the upgraded ones.

Cheers

Re: Upper wishbone gaiter

Gentlemen, thank you all. Chris, clear plastic ones from SNGB, they said the factory (JLR?) versions are the ones people seem to think are best. Possibly the same as Hutsons? Steve, only bought the gaiters as the wishbones are upgraded with plastic inserts the balljoints fit into. But already had th...

Upper wishbone gaiter

I have searched the forum, however: I've never had much success getting the gaiters to stay clipped onto the front upper wishbones. Raising the car up onto jacks such that the wheels are hanging free almost always has the gaiter come loose from the wishbone. Getting it clipped back into place isn't ...

Re: Demister Vents

Hi Julian, thank you for clarifying things. I was mistaken in thinking there is one long central vent nozzle not two straight ones together. My mistake, sorry.

Now we've got to persuade you to make the linked vent set a little less expensive :bigrin:

Jeremy, I do admire your handiwork :yellow:

As an aside, the Bosch intermittent wiper switch part number 0 336 920 004 is still available as an alternative for the Hella unit, search fleabay and they do show up, though becoming rarer.

Re: Fine-Threads and Knurled Nuts on adjuster cables

I do get worried about Pete, he's either into knurling his nuts or trying not to look like a silicon tit :wow:

Rory, sorry, I shall need one of those for my own purposes. But the other will be posted to you.

Will these chrome slotted nuts work for your odometer reset cable? If so it will be in the post to you.
Can't help with the wiper item.

Do you know the serial number (VIN) of the car? If so try entering it here: xkedata.com it may give you some information if it's on there.

It's good to introduce yourself and show a photo or two of your car then get down to brass tacks and fire away with questions.
