  1. Correct. new starting motor required, get one from a transit connect up to 09 i believe , they dont seem to have the same problem.
  2. Same pump for mk3 to mk6 , you will find parts still available ,I believe vw fitted the same to golfs and parts still available as is the fluid.
  3. Listen folks, all the expensive cabs for sale on eBay or other sites have been on there for ages, I think that tells you what I am trying to tell you , good cars come on weekly either auction or buy it now, I still say £5-6k gets you a very clean good car, 1500 - 3000 gets you a car that you will spend 3k on to make it decent. Good luck.
  4. Check hoses around throttle body if any leak that can make it run rough.
  5. There was one at auction recently ,not sure what it sold for. If it has the leather interior and is a genuine one there are not many around, but as I said 15 k is strong, offer 10k and see what they say.
  6. 15k for any cab is expensive, depends how desperate you are to buy it. If I had 15k to spend I would buy an rs turbo or sapphire cosworth . There is a car advertised in Northants for 10k ,was 15k a few months back, that’s only covered 5k miles, think that tells you enough. Good luck.
  7. For sure, as cabs go it’s one of the most sought after models ,I would buy it but have three other cabs already lol
  8. I would sell it as it is, if it’s original sell it with its original faults. As to it’s value , could try £8,000.00 Ono , if it does not sell then drop price. Could get a classic car company to make you an offer, they may offer a good price because bottom dollar they will ask £12 ,000 plus when work done and offered for sale. good luck.
  9. A bit to the right of glove box, yea was a pain I ended up taking half dashboard out, even then had problems with the two pipes running through bulkhead into engine bay.
  10. Was it raining or wet roads when out, if not would think it’s heater rad under dashboard, central behind gearstick with two pipes running into the back of the engine, I changed mine, was quite a bit of work
  11. Bought mine from car hood warehouse, had local guy fit it. Bought my white roof cover from prestige, cost a fortune, poor quality even came without the press studs, they said all cars have different stud positions (really) had to take to local guy to finish, no I would not buy again from prestige.
  12. I have seen a couple fitted to mk4 RS Turbo cars , if I remember they were done at the time with Peugeot parts ,that’s all I remember.
  13. No is the answer Ian , I am going with two cars with Bedfordshire rs owners, we only have 5 or 6 as most cars are not 25 years old.
  14. Good post, very handy to keep on file.
