Re: Fuel Tank Adventures

Just removed my tank as well. Its being cleaned and treated as we speak. Lots of contaminants. I'm definitely not looking forward to the re-install.

Re: Gearbox cover - series 3 ?

Hi Gary,

It seems to be short. I was told it was a Series 3 cover but I think not.
Its made out of sheetmetal which I guess is a plus for a earlier car.

Gearbox cover - series 3 ?

Gents, This was sold to me as a Series 3 Gearbox cover. On receipt, my feelings say otherwise. I am in the process of a Series 3 auto to manual conversion. Could one of you all please tell me if I am correct ? I would appreciate the help. Thank you! Wes https://s7.postimg.cc/sw4w581hn/IMG_1437.jpg

Re: Series 3 Gearbox tunnel cover for 4spd

Thanks Ole,
I've seen the ones at SNG. I really have my heart set on a metal version. I searched the forums and there was a fellow who was able to find one. I sent him a "PM". I hope he can help.

Series 3 Gearbox tunnel cover for 4spd

Good evening Gents !

Does anyone know where I can obtain a "Gearbox tunnel cover" for a 4 spd ?
I prefer a sheetmetal version if such a version exists .

The vehicle also has "Air Con" if that is a issue,

Thank you,
Wes

Re: Mystery wire behind instrument cluster

Hi Mark,
The wire was already disconnected. I am trying to locate its connection point...if it has any. At some time in its past ,a previous owner did some "work" behind the gauges and switches. I'd like to know what this wire is for ( green-fuse-white).

Re: Mystery wire behind instrument cluster

Yes Sir,
There is a heating element in the rear windscreen hatchback. I will check for power at the switch and element with a volt/ohm meter. Hopefully this will solve the issue. We shall see.
Thank you.
