Re: battery capacity, does it matter??

Alex is right, the old copper coil battery short circuit testing kit is practically banned - though not unofficially obsolete! Don't do anything stupid - that's why its good practice to always remove the negative terminal of a battery first on negative earth cars - you can't short the positive term...

Re: Rough idle 1.5dci engine mount

I have the same problem. 06 plate scenic 1.5 dci. sometimes is rough as if running on 3 cylinders. other times is perfect. Tried cracking off each injector to see if it would point to one partictular injector/cylinder. Very hard to tell as it's obviously not running on 3 cylinders. Not the engine m...

Re: Fuse keeps blowing

i'm no expert but i reckon theres a water problem somewhere - i'd do a process of illimination by checking each area the fuse covers, look for any concerns, maybe dry it or check contacts for contamintion. then i'd do a little more investigation work on absolutely anything just to keep me outta the ...

Re: Rough idle 1.5dci engine mount

Hi, not sure if you're getting the same problem as me?? I also have a 1.5dci but mine only idles ""lumpy like!!"" intermittently. sometimes it can idle perfectly nice and smooth, then other times it can vibrate the whole car (nice) I also knew of a colleague's 1.5dci doing the sa...

Re: window regulator

I went to Europarts to look for one and they told me they couldn't supply a complete reg 'n' motor unit, just the reg mech. If you got the lot for that price then I ...

Re: window regulator

I would like to retract what I said about the dealer being wrong and needing another regulator. It turned out to be very true. The replacement regulator I got from a breakers turned out to have exactly the same problem as my original one :-( (lucky theres a 90 day warranty period). Its my first Rena...
