Re: Seat belts series 2 2+2

Ahh
Thought it was odd
Wonder why they put it there?
I will take a look
Probably stripped out or siezed and cut off in the hole knowing my luck

Seat belts series 2 2+2

Hi all
I am re fitting my seat belts in my series 2 2+2
Or that is re fitting new ones
One end of the old ones was fitted under the door side rear seat bolts and a spacer in the other side
Is this normal?
Cheers for advice

Re: Brake pressure

It could also be a faulty master cylinder,servo cylinder
Or even a leak somewhere
Is the brake fluid level going down?

Before you start changing things are you sure your diagnosis is correct? Did you bypass the bulkhead regulator properly? Have you checked the output with an avo meter? Are you sure your volt guage is reading correctly? Voltage and amperage are two different things Your alternator is designed to lowe...

Re: New Clutch slave cylinder: losing fluid overnight?

If its leaking you should see the leak
It will be wet
Pull off the rubber cap on the slave and see if its got fluid in it
Then do the same with the master cylinder
