Re: Replacrment 1998 2.0 16v engine

Honestly that's no problem at all! Was purely on the off chance.

Thanks anyway!

Re: Replacrment 1998 2.0 16v engine

I don't want to hijack the thread, but any chance I could grab the rear sway bar and rear left quarter panel? I'm up in Scotland but I'd be happy to pay postage and a bit of dosh for the effort.

Re: Abs code reading reports all 4 sensors!?

Got it, mojo I never should have doubted you, your both legends (I would have taken the whole dash apart.)

Is the black box the failsafe relay?

Thanks again guys, absolutely over the moon!

Re: Abs code reading reports all 4 sensors!?

This is driving me nuts. If anyone can point me to the 1995 2l ABS control module I'll be forever in your debt.

Re: Abs code reading reports all 4 sensors!?

Hey, I took the panel off and couldn't find it. Could you post a photo?

When the diagnostics are flashing out the codes, it works for about 15 seconds, then there is a click and the abs light stays on permanently. Could this be a relay problem?

2l 1995 btw.

Thanks.

Abs code reading reports all 4 sensors!?

Hey, I'm having problems pulling codes from the diagnostics box. I was using a paperclip to connect GND and TBS, then turning the ignition 2 turns. After trying it maybe 20 times the error codes were only shown twice. (They would go through the codes once, then the abs light would stay solid on.) Th...

Re: Rear quarter panel and new glass

Can I double check that all 16v and 24v body panels are interchangeable right? Also my 1995 has the same panels as 93' - 97'?

Thanks again,

Re: Brake fluid change

Be careful there. What was good enough 20 years ago has lasted 20 years. The 'modern' stuff can contain ingredients which are not compatible with the 'old' components in the system. I appreciate that, but I've dipped it with a tester pen and its showing atleast 4% water (the highest reading on the ...

Brake fluid change

Hey guys,

So I'm guessing the brake fluid in the car hasn't been changed for about 20 years(!!). Its recommended dot 3, however, am I best putting dot 5.1 in purely because its "newer"? I've tried googling it a lot and cant find any good information. I just drive it normally.

Thanks,
