    I've just checked mine. I only have a single red wire and a single grey wire.

    OK thanks, I'd take a more detailed look in the daylight over the weekend! Looks like I either have a bodge (that doesn't work!!) or there has been another wire added in place of the grey one and perhaps the tailgate switch no longer works...

    Alarm guys sometimes run a wire to the bulb in the boot so it trips the alarm when the hatch is opened

    Evening All,

    My car is off the road again and up on stands (for a variety of reasons - joy!)
    Anyway, today I tried getting the front splitter off as I have a replacement to go on. However some of the screws are seized. I'll get them off by drilling / extracting etc... Does anyone know if the correct size screw and locater/clip are available to buy? I had a look at the Bentley Manual but didn't easily find a part number. I guess any screw and clip combo will do but you know with OEM that it'll definitely fit...!


    Cheers all,

    Cluffy

    Are you on about the ones near the engine at tha back of the bumper. If so they screw into a curved special bracket I think the bolts have a 10mm head on them. I got one of the brackets last year from heritage. Lilfuzzer on heat will no doubt have some of the bolts they aren’t your average shape or look.
    4th one surely the last

    I'm after the screws (3x each side) that hold the splitter to the main part of the bumper. I've removed the five bolts on the front with no problem...

    Evening all,

    Miffed doesn't cover it - I'm refurbishing the suspension with new boots, bearings and top mount bushes (Struts and Springs OK and I don't like replacing things that work just because they're old). Anyway, tightening the top nut onto the new bearing on one strut and the 7mm allen bit has slipped or gripped or who knows what and the thread has split and bent out about 6-7mm from the top of the strut. No way to get the strut apart again without chopping the top of with a grinder. A bit worried about doing that.

    Anyone have any tips/thoughts/advice. I need a beer....
