  1. The funny thing is people say more about themselves with comments like that. I think the admiration shared on the forum is a more accurate representation of what people think.
  2. I'm curious as to what negative comments there were on your first class creation...you're right to ignore though

    Good to know. Which dash speakers did you get?

    dash speakers

    well after having refitted the crossovers it seems i've finally got an issue with the harness from the head unit. Visually looks fine,but some loose connection somewhere that i cant identify because sound to the LHS speaker is scratchy every so often. Sprayed contact cleaner on them but i'll probably get a new harness just to rule it out. Looks like the head unit CAN actually power the crossovers comfortably. And of course i broke the thin plastic piece going across under the head unit cage yet again...

    dash speakers

    Good info, thanks. What would then be the best way to set these up? I think the crossovers i have, (diamond audio, passive) might not be able to be powered effectively by the head unit

    in practice is this actually detected ie does the sound appear muffled and low down or is it still quite clear? Audioscapes are angled upwards to perhaps this helps? Perhaps a bit subjective i suppose.. What i'm looking at is removing the amp and just running the speakers off the head unit, which tbh is likely to be adequate for my needs. If things change, i've got some amps i can use as required, or i may just get an integrated amp/subwoofer unit for the boot. That said, i'd be interested in suggestions here. Especially while the dash is in bits! Thanks Hasan

    If you fit just 2,3,or 4-way door speakers (and no dash tweeters) does this mean that a crossover is no longer required?

    @Cressa, did you not have the thermocouple anywhere on yours? I'm wondering if it is interconnected at all and if not, i'll just bypass it

    Thanks for that. On mine, the thermocouple runs across and then towards the expansion valve, then disappears into the mastic

    Actually you could be right about the routing - I'll check again tomorrow and post up a picture. So you don't have that thermostat fitted? I can't even seem to identify it on the Diavia wiring diagram tbh

    Thanks Philly, i'll have a look. Cressa - good to know and a good suggestion, i'll try that instead of looking to fit them at the front.

    On the right side of the passenger undertray. The thermocouple just routes round to the bit covered in black mastic

    Fan fitted back now, seems to be running well! This id the broken thermocouple connection on the thermostat which I'm wondering about

    VR6 ABS relay

    So here's my set up with the cables for the abs relays coming under the air duct. But there's no apparent area to fit them.properly
  15. Yup, cant post from my laptop and can only open a different page in a new tab

    VR6 ABS relay

    Many thanks for digging this out Philly. Yes, the clips on the side of one are broken off so they've been taped together. Would you by any chance have a pic of what this then clips into ,where thats located and how its fixed? I'll post up a pic of the relays in my car tomorrow hopefully Thanks again

    VR6 ABS relay

    Thanks. Is this in front of the duct from the fan or behind it? Ive been trying to stick the relays to the front (the bit that you see not the side facing the bulkhead)...maybe thats where 8m going wrong. Also mine has aircon, so would the mounting be different at all?

    VR6 ABS relay

    Almost 20 years old! The relays behind the glove box - how are these meant to stay in place? Is there a clip or bracket somewhere that mine is missing? Tried various method with velcro, double sided tape but nothing has worked Thanks Hasan

    Davina air con

    By the way, how do you guys mount the relays at the back? I tried velcro but there's not enough contact area. Plus that other huge cable harness behind the glovebox. I've wedged that in with some foam

    Davina air con

    Many thanks! And oiled, cleaned and ready to install again. Cleaned up the endbell with a green scourer, awkward shape so not a great finish, although you'll never see it anyway! Should really have polished the outer mounting flange but again it'll never really be seen. Runs nice and smoothly now, the best its ever sounded tbh.

    Made some progress in mine - removed the motor from the mount by loosening the mounting bolt. Its just an interference fit so a few taps with the mallet and it was out. Removed the vanes by tapping them.off. I put the motor between two blocks.of wood and tapped the centre with a centre punch. Cleaned the bearings and applied some lube. Seems very nice and smooth now. I'll test it with 12v and see how.it sounds. Fitted new rivets (one was upside down but i didnt have any spares so have left it, hopefully wont foul the fan..)

    Davina air con

    Many thanks. Managed to remove it and take the fan out. Its a really messy install and I'll try and improve how it goes back. Bearings in mine were ok, just needed a bit of lube. Fan was slightly dirty. Dox - I'm looking to replace the thermostat which has the two green wires going to it. The thermocouple has broken off just at the thermostat. I'm wondering if it is indeed necessary (i believe it is related to icing) and if so if a standard fridge thermostat can be used

    Cressa? How did you remove the blower motor? Mine has become very noisy. Stupidly i also removed one of the long mounting screws which looks like it goes into some kind of loose captive nut, which i cant seem to find now! Also, the thermostat with the thermocouple - on mine the thermocouple has broken off right by the switch. Just wondering it its even needed - i believe its just to prevent icing on the condensor. Is it ok to just join the two green wires or could it be replaced with a standard thermostat used for eg a freezer? Thanks Hasan
  24. Great pics. Anyone from the forum there?
