  8. Once the car is going its fine but if i leave it to warm up on drive it will cut out after a while and then the battery lights come on and i have jump it?? I think the stereo has something to do with it! Will check pipes tomorrow and have a new rad to fit so that may help, my heaters only blow cold air too ????
  9. Wheel sorted, battery fitted :) If left running car cuts out and then needs jumping, why? - I think the stereo is sucking all the power, could this be so?

  10. I had the battery changed in my 2.0 16v and car keeps cutting out, have to jump it to get going, do you think this might have something to do with the stereo?
  11. Hello My car is beautiful and I still love it, my dad does not!! Well i have been a busy little bee collecting parts on ebay and visiting Karl KADVR alot, he is a legend :) I have had all sorts replaced now, the engine nearlly fell out when the engine mount bolt snapped so had all that replaced along with new rad hoses, new tyre. I have now brought wish bones/bushes new battery, windscreen wipers and motor, radiator, crossmember and valance, also interior tit bits. I hope to get it all fitted over the next few weeks so should be running even better Have slight issue with snapped bolts in wheel hub but hopefully getting it 'tapped out' tomorrow.

  18. Hey corrado dudes:) My first post about my lovely car does make me chuckle, I've had Kevin about a month now and just a few small issues is turning out to be a load of bollox quite frankly but this is fine, It's now a vocation!! Anyhow, an engine bolt decided to take flight so does anyone know what bolt it might be? Also, had the oil filter housing changed and for some reason I have an extra little rubber pin floating about on a blue wire, is this normal? There are three of these but two are connected, is there a picture on here to see what it should be like? I need a manual asap! cheers peeps x
  19. They having a snog!! Karl is a legend, thanks dude! x
  20. That guide is fantastic but wouldn't dare attempt that, how much do you think it would cost to get done? Where is Baku?

  22. Hi Ian When I started researching for my C, that seemed to be the first thing people warned me about, water in footwell means heater martix, i think it might be a nightmare as you have to take out the steering column/ dash. x
