Need Replacement Cover For 'secret Compartment', Lost Mine!

08 July 2014 - 06:40 AM

Anybody know where I can buy the cover for the secret compartment.


Mine's been knocking about in the footwell for a few months and some bright spark decided to throw it away when cleaning my car...


Thanks :(


PS have tried google to no avail


And if anyone is wondering why I took the lid off in the first place, fitted a phone/sat nav holder.







Is My Steering About To Break?

07 May 2014 - 06:52 PM

Hi guys,


I hit a pot hole maybe 2 months ago or so, and it completely obliterated my late 2008 alloy into many seperate pieces.


I immediately installed the space saver and got a new alloy sent to me within a week. Driving on the space saver, I noticed my steering wheel would shake above 50mph and the car would rumble from the left passenger wheel (the point of impact). I took no notice of this and just put it down to driving on a space saver near it's maximum intended speed (50mph) which I rarely if at all exceeded.


With the new alloy installed, my car still rumbles and shakes from the left passenger wheel above 50mph and I'm worried something may have been damaged by the impact, since it was large enough to actually shatter an alloy, and now that the wheel and tyre have been replaced I doubt it's anything to do with the wheel itself.


Does anybody have any ideas as to what, if anything, could have been damaged by this type of accident, and what could be causing this problem? The steering wheel also shakes mildly but it doesn't affect the actual steering itself and I haven't noticed any extra issues with the tracking etc.


Hope to hear from you all soon, and thank you for reading


P.S. I had the suspension arm on that wheel replaced about 6 months ago, so I know the noise that used to make and can safely rule that out as a possibility.
