could well be a temp sensor?


I'm possibly too late but I agree with that. You could always try looking on www.rsownersclub.co.uk for other ideas if you're still stuck.

I dripped a bit of mine onto the paint below and now it's made that bit look crap, but the scrape looks fine. Anyone know how to clean the dripped part off?


Assuming you wiped the drip off after it happened, if you can't polish out the remaining blemish with mild cutting compound for clear coat then you may have to use P2000 grit wet & dry then the compound. Be very careful as today's clear coat is not very thick. Halfords has a couple of compounds for clear coat on their shelves.

MoreThan - excellent service. But not for my Cosworth ;-)

In Topic: wheel balancing on the car

13 July 2009 - 08:50 PM

when i had my escort and upgraded to alloys and no matter how many garages i took it to , the alloys although balanced correctly, the car would never stop vibrating at 50mph -60mph , until one mentioned about getting the wheels balanced on the car. it was rare back then , and it took along time to find someone who still did it, i did find one and it used to be an 80 mile round trip to get it done.
when they balanced them on the car it drove great, and ive always wondered why it would make a difference like that, is it actually better to balance wheels on the car , there must be something else that would be getting balanced out also when its done, why is it not done anymore and did anybody else use to have this done , if not then just ignore me as a stupid old f*rt :blink:


I remember me trying to balance shagged out discs this way years ago when I couldn't afford to change them. It didn't work, by the way, as there wasn't enough room for all the lead. You can probably buy discs nearly as cheap as a good balance job these days!
