  1. Solution has come to my head. I'm off to B&Q tomorrow to buy a load of pine batten and short screws to make my own edge trim as a backstop to avoid the panels pushing backwards out of the grooves. A little bit of extra effort and a small extra cost to save hours of frustration and scraped fingers. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  2. Not at all. I enjoy turning flat boxes into furniture however the people who design the kit seem to delight in making some parts as tricky as possible. Biggest annoyance of the wardrobes is trying to get the back psnels to sit in piddly little grooves. Surely they can come up with a better way of fitting them so you don't need 6 arms and fingers like spiders legs. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  3. And to add to the struggles - the instructions are in french!! Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  4. I don't like assembling wardrobes. Had 2 to build and instructions quote 3 1/2 hours per unit. Took me 2 days and a lot of cursing to do one even though I'm pretty good at woodworking and usually enjoy doing flatpack stuff. Super heavy mirrored sliding doors didn't help either. It would be easier if my wife stopped buying so many clothes & shoes [emoji2955] Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  5. Pretty much par for the course for BMW drivers then. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  6. May be a module fault or quite often it's because the module has 10 phones already paired to it (the maximum spaces available). You should be able to scroll through and remove all / any other phones saved there then try bonding again. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  7. You're not unzipping all the files are you? On the memory stick you should only see 2 files and one folder (full of self extracting cab files). Also ensure the memory stick is formatted to exfat and put the files on the stick as root files and not in any other folder. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  8. The socket lights are on a seperate live circuit but do earth via contacts against the side of the sockets so at least you know the earth side is fine. Silly question (possibly) but have you checked the correct fuse? Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  9. It's really no more than just a filler for the space on the screen where satnav data would show. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  10. The module is seperate to the radio. If you press the phone buttons on the radio and it just mutes audio then no module fitted or if there is one then it's not working. Also look at your steering wheel radio control stalk, if bluetooth is fitted then there will be a button marked 'Voice' on the top. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)

  12. Does your car have the bluetooth module fitted? Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  13. Totally legal with certain exceptions. This site explains it better than I can- https://www.dcs2way.co.uk/news/is-it-legal-to-use-a-two-way-radio-whilst-driving.htm Btw, moved to general chat.
  14. Bit of a necro bump but totally agree. I heartily hate seeing people not belted up. Seen too many nasty injuries and head shaped holes in windscreens when attending rtc. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  15. I have never used a spacesaver, I'd rather call a mobile fitter. Of course they are designed to get you off motorways etc to safety but as it is very dangerous to change wheels in that environment I would say get a recovery service out in all such cases. I've dealt with the aftermath of a rtc on a motorway where someone got hit whilst changing an offside tyre on a major A road and it wasn't a nice experience at all. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
