Re: Steering wheel shaking, and clunking noise when turning?

the vibration is likely to be a front wheel out of balance or a flat spotted tyre if you have skidded recently.
to get your front wheels balanced should not cost more then 20 quid

Re: cam belt change and pulleys?

only the tensioner pulley has to be changed but it's common to replace the water pump as it's quite cheap and you already have the timing belt of.
the dephaser pulley because of it's cost rarely get's done until it starts failing.

Re: Roof fault

resistance in the motor is what will cause the fuse to blow. open the roof manually all the way down and then up. do this several times. lack of use is normally the cause

Re: electrical problem

sounds like a sensor in the box has packed up. you also have a module that sits on top of the gearbox that controls it's operation. check that it's connection in secure and water free. you may have to remove the battery and the tray.
