In Topic: Things I've Been Putting Off - Wing Mirrors And Boot Struts

26 February 2014 - 08:27 AM

This is great, thanks - need to double check the manual when I get home, my focus is the 'style' trim, certainly doesn't have puddle lights or automatic fold, need to check if it's heated.  The mirror units you linked above are a better price than I was able to find, they're listed as heated - if I don't have heated, do you know if I'll be able to fit my existing mirrors to this anyway? And presumably it's going to use the same loom connection?

 

And thanks for the tip on the struts, will give that a go.


In Topic: Mk2.5 Rear Drums Sticking

Thanks both, I'll have a look inside this weekend.  As it happens, I have a service booked in for a few weeks time (the dealer gave me a service pack for free when I bought the car), so if I can't see anything obvious I'll maybe wait for that.

 

If I were to take it apart, do you think I'll have any problem refitting the original springs, or should I be ready to put new springs in?

 

I live in a flat on a busy street and it's a bit of a pain to do work on the car so I haven't taken the wheel off again to double check this  (will do at the weekend) - but from memory last time I had the wheel off, the drum didn't have a dust cap or nut to remove in the middle - this is a random photo I've found online but I think it was similar to this:

Is that familiar to anyone?  I'm pretty sure it has a hole to screw a bit into to help get it off (I was watching them do it when I had it in ATS), but otherwise just a case of persuading it pull off. I think I read somewhere it's a 8mm threaded bit you need for the hole?

Thanks all!

I quite liked the front and bonnet of the mk3 - this new style isn't terrible, but I prefer the mk3.
