    Horn not working

    Actually its a little rubber cap on the back of the horn. Mine was covered in paint primer so didn't recognise it. Anyway, sprayed some wd40 into it after unscrewing the cap plus sprayed some via the trumpet. Tried it again but not much of a result. Lets see how it is after an overnight soak or if its prob easier to just get new ones. I'm sure I've got some glaswegian blood somewhere...

    Horn not working

    is there any way to get to the inside nut? Removed the support bracket but cant see how to go any further.

    Horn not working

    Good tip, will do. Yes, 12v direct, sounded like some dying bagpipes

    Horn not working

    my horns have basically died. Took them out and there is just a weak honk from each. Not sure if they can be refurbed but are there any good loud horns anyone has used? Bought some for the Yaris which said they were low and high tone and 110dB but sounded pretty wimpy. Are these any good?: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/403197893860?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D6a202567f8594d9d8baa67075ea7f1de%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D143964161692%26itm%3D403197893860%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A2ecdf27b-68ed-11ed-a2f8-a6c611258531|parentrq%3A95c9cfaf1840aaf8ca8a2a6bfffc600a|iid%3A1 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402893337897?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D6a202567f8594d9d8baa67075ea7f1de%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D143964161692%26itm%3D402893337897%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DFiamm&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A2ecdf27b-68ed-11ed-a2f8-a6c611258531|parentrq%3A95c9cfaf1840aaf8ca8a2a6bfffc600a|iid%3A1 Or could these be fitted easily?: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143964161692?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D6a202567f8594d9d8baa67075ea7f1de%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D143964161692%26itm%3D143964161692%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A2ecdf27b-68ed-11ed-a2f8-a6c611258531|parentrq%3A95c9cfaf1840aaf8ca8a2a6bfffc600a|iid%3A1 Thanks Hasan

    Seat recline broken

    Thanks for that - I'm just afraid of breaking plastic bits and creating a new problem!

    Seat recline broken

    Old thread - how do you remove the round seat recline knob? From the picture in the thread it suggests that there is some central screw, but i cant see how the centre can be accessed, it looks like a completely moulded piece. I've been around the inner disc with a jewellers screwdriver hoping that there was some release slot, but didn't find anything. Any suggestions?
  8. i love your garage - nice image on the wall too. Turntable is fantastic as is the floor covering. I'm not jealous....well maybe a little bit 🙂
  9. These really do look good Chris!
  10. Really superb work JF, it'll be a pleasure to drive. Hasan
  11. There's the bar Chris, and you just go and raise it ! I bet VW didnt pay an much attention when our cars were first made. Brilliant pics to go with that incredible work.
  12. Perhaps a silly suggestion, but are all the connectors behind the fuse box seated properly and is the locking bar in position? Also, are the wires going to the large red connector all ok? I had an issue with mine when I swopped out the autobox to a manual years back so i can't remember the connector or wiring unfortunately
  13. I'm struggling with getting first and reverse, plus 5th is also a bit crunchy. At present, reverse is 1st and first goes into third. I've adjusted the top cable and its almost all the way back towards the bulkhead, could go back a few mm more. What does the lower cable adjust? This has the sliding captive nut and can move a good 10mm. Thanks
  14. Mine have come loose slightly and have become irritatingly noisy as they stick and unstick. Any suggestions to fit these properly and permanently? Thanks
  15. I cut away some of the added insulation which was thicker than the standard insulation. This may have been stopping the cylinder from moving down properly (both drivers and passengers sides). Locking seems to be working ok now, but i'll update if there's any other issue. By the way, is the car meant to lock and unlock if you push down or pull up the drivers door pin? Mine has never done so. I recently checked and cleaned the two connectors in the door. I assume there is some limit switch that the lock plunger comes into contact with when using either the key or the keyfob? A while back i was looking to put in a switch on the dash or somewhere else that convenient to lock and unlock. i'd have to look at the wiring though.. Thanks
