Re: 24V Probe Idle Issue

I thought that after changing your oil you had applied for tech status so this should be easy for a man of your talents Paul :lol:

Re: New suspension arms creaking?

You are probably getting an echo when going into the garage so it sounds worse.

Check that all nuts and bolts have been correctly torqued as a start.

Re: Removing Seat Rails

Re: Probe 2.5 rear brakes

Some people in have fitted Mazda 6 front callipers and discs which is useful and relatively inexpensive upgrade which is quite straightforward, but I’m not sure if the rears also fit.

I think that there has also been someone who did a Brembo upgrade but that is more involved.

Re: Radio speaker replacement. Probe 24v 1997

I have used In Phase speakers in my cars in the past, they come in a good range of sizes to match the originals but are better quality at a sensible price.

Managed to get second place in the stereo competition at Probefest once with those fitted to my MX6 :shock:

Re: Rear wheel bearing

Alternatively the socket for the hub nut fits through the hole in a space saver wheel so you can fit that and crack the nut with the car on the ground - nice and safe, although you will still need a breaker bar and put the car in gear and with the handbrake so it cannot move

Re: Failed MOT work

This is one of the best things about this club - full of friendly, helpful people who will readily give time and expertise to help sort out others Probes and MX6s. Keep the teas/coffee and bacon buttys/fried egg sarnies coming and maybe a slice or 2 of cake and jobs will get done. TBH I think that w...
