Re: Heated rear window (just!)

Problem is those 'strips of element material' are slowly oxidising away , becoming more resistive in the process hence losing power. Then there is mechanical breakage if the tiniest 'something' on the parcel shelf touches the strip. No easy answer I'm afraid. Hi John. You being a lecky, do you know...

Re: Heated rear window (just!)

Does all the elements get ‘hot’, or do you have bands that don’t clear :?: Kit I'll be interested to hear whats said about this as my lower 4 dont work this season, so I'm guessing they are in sets of 4 in parallel and I've got a break in the +tve or -tve connection. The rest dont seem to work quit...

Re: Battery tester reading. Updated

It wont hurt Elaine. There's little to no activity if its not charging or discharging. Stay away from those fumes. Fully charged the open circuit battery voltage will be about 13 volts but probably a little higher immediately after being charged but that soon goes as its due to an internal capacita...

Re: Should my Brake Fluid be this colour ??

Hi Duncan. I know your question is very tongue in cheek :) however, I get a bit anal about oil, so you've started me off now! :roll: During my merchant navy days we had lub oil and hydraulic oil absolutely everywhere and it used to amaze me how much water you could build up in a header tank that had...

Re: Code 51

I've checked the bible and a code 51 indicates a short to earth that has come and gone. If it were still there it would give the code for the appropriate fault. However, I would be concerned about what cause the short in the first place. Maybe a check of the connectors. Don't forget that if it come ...

I'd have to look at the bible, but from memory, I think I'm right in saying t...

Re: Hits keep coming

Worth mentioning Kev that I'm talking about generic rings not OEM rings. Not sure if they are available these days (OEM), but I can certainly get a suitable standard O ring if you are stuck.

Re: Hits keep coming

Hi Kev.

If you need "O" rings, I will either have them, or can get them for you. Never a good idea to reuse them, though I am not familiar with the pipe in question.
