  2. Definitely it has an immobiliser, hence the light on the dashboard
  3. Better off buying it new. Although some of these suppliers do not post.

  4. I had posted one here years ago, but when the forum changed over, I think some files or posts were lost. It was also in an earlier version of Ford TIS
  5. Sounds like a high resistance, checking all the earths in the boot, especially near the nearside light cluster.
  6. I doubt it, pointless in doing bump. Probably gone to that big scrapyard in the sky
  7. Seen this on ebay if anyone is interested. I was thinking about getting one of these shells nearly 10 years ago or more. He seemed to have had more then. Although they were around £800 or so.

  8. It really depends on price. Standard models do not command as much as would a RS2000 or XR3i, what was the condition before it was not being used?
  9. The government plans to change the law on car modification to make it difficult to do certain things without being penalised. There is a consultation opened which closed on 22 November 2021 at 11:45pm, this has not been publicised for obvious reasons and in some ways can impact tuning packages that change the emissions of the car.

  10. Is that the one that attached from the gearbox to the subframe, or the one that attaches from the top of the gearbox to the nearside inner wing.
  11. Never heard of this for the roof, I know of one on the alternator. Helps if you mention the car, engine, year etc
  12. If you check the search, there are a lot of other fluids many use. I believe they are mineral based
  13. Have you tried the ignition relay
