In Topic: Mist Jet Adjustment

18 January 2013 - 06:07 AM

I have these on my mk1 and they are not adjustable, however someone once suggested that if you put a small blob of superglue at the bottom of the jet it directs the mist higher up the screen. I suppose in theory this could be done on different parts of the jet to angle the mist whichever way you like.

I hope this helps.

Well after a week of running fine with a new battery the problem has returned today. I am now looking at replacing the alternator probably getting a second hand one from e-bay and trying to fit it myself as a new one is looking at costing me £150 approx.

My question is do the 1.8 petrol and the 2.0 petrol use the same alternator? I have found one on ebay in almost new nick but its advertised as a 2.0 engine one...

Any help with this greatly appreciated.

Well after breaking down on the M1 at rush hour this morning, somehow getting back to Nottingham from Sheffield via the AA man borrowing me a battery for the duration of the journey, it turned out to indeed be a knackered battery. Not bad considering I've had the car 6 years and that was the battery that was on it when I got it!

£50 for a new battery fitted, bloke even cleaned all the connectors etc and put some stuff on the terminals to keep them clean, all sorted.

Thanks for all the tips and help, will come in handy in the future I am sure!

Engine off - 12.0v
Engine running - 14.1v

What I have noticed upon inspection is what can only be described as "loads of white stuff" underneath the + terminal. Ive been out to it today and the light is no longer coming on so it appears to be intermittent. I plan to give the terminals the clean at the weekend and see if this helps. Anyone any idea what the white stuff is and how likely that is to be causing the issue? Thanks in advance.

Sorry if this is a ridiculous question but how would I be able to do this?
