Re: Roadster or Coupe

I now much prefer the look of the coupe to the point I'm about to buy a series 1 (1964). Have I gone mad? :yeahthat: I think that you have already answered you own question, it's all about personal preference and most owners will usually prefer their own version whether it be an OTS or a FHC.

DVLA request vehicle inspection ?

I just decided to remove my personal number plate for retention from my car and return it to it's original plate and DVLA have decided that they want SGS to inspect my car before they will re-instate the original number plate. Apparently they now have to check 40% of applications. I think this is th...

Re: Gauge refurbishing.

Darren, The dashboard top is able to come out with the windscreen in place but it is not easy job as it is a very tight fit on the back edge to allow for the four threaded bots in the top to sit in the slotted brackets that hold it in place. I managed to get mine out and back three months ago but be...

Re: Hazard dash light not working.

The switch comes out through the front. There are two plastic clips one one either side horizontally on the switch which need compressing to release the casing. Once the switch is out unplug the wires, you will see the rocker works on a central pivot spindle which you gently prize the casing over ke...

Hi Darren, The N/S seat will come out with the door on, you need to release it, turn it on the side around the B pillar.

Re: Hazard dash light not working.

I had a similar problem and found that it was a broken rocker switch inside not making constant contact.
Have you checked the switch internals as the copper electrodes can break off or bend especially if the switch action was stiff and this would cause an intermittent fault. :idea:
