Tech 2. Assuming the seat swap has cured the original issue...

Yes if it's the driver's side one you need... ::)

Revenue protection.

Either highlighting work that might need attention soon or by detecting potential warranty issues before they become bigger deals... ie sticky rear caliper spotted early would mean a new rear caliper but leave it until it's too late and the warranty becomes disc and pads as well. Times two because you can't do just one side...

Plastic filler trim fitted to ALL facelift bumpers regardless of spec.

Obviously they are handed (pić shows off side).

Collected it from Mr Clutch. Again.

Turns out that the feed pipe from the master was leaking as it did not seat correctly on the new master, and a seal had also failed where the spigot joins the master. Both replaced and all is good, and fluid tight :y

As above.

MoT failure for sill corrosion both sides and NSR brake pipe. Advisories for front chassis rails.

Good bits:
Xenons with washers, 4 winter tyres with decent tread on reasonable CD wheels, recent new wishbones with front poly bushes and arb bushes, drop links, track Rods, new Sachs shocks all round with new fittings and top mounts and bearings, new springs all round, Pedders rear subframe donuts. Fully serviced when I bought it, including breather clean and camcover gasket, thermostat, hbv and coolant change.

Suspension has done about 2,500 miles.

Drives really well.

Bad bits:
Scrubs up OK, but lots of car park drinks. Rear arches starting to go, along with lower doors. Could benefit from a cam and crank sensor, but still perfectly usable, (neither stops the manual 2.2s from being driven). Sills can either be patched or replaced... Couple of small holes towards the front and both rear ends.

If repaired and not abused, then realistically it should have another couple of years in it.

Obviously being sold as spares or repairs, and open to sensible offers, but be mindful of the value of the suspension parts...

Ideally looking for 350 ono.

Not that anyone at UEA has an axe to grind or anything...

When the sea defenses north of Yarmouth fail, about a third of Norfolk and Suffolk will become a brackish lagoon.

Incidentally this particular, local, situation has been a hot topic since the Middle Ages...  And the will it/won't it status quo has only survived due to clever people from Medieval Holland and their burly lesbians... ::)

Easy swap as plug and play but AR25 gearbox will not cope with 3.0 torque
Manual ::)

It will be fine :y

I would not expect any petrol to turn its oil that dark that quickly, even if ragged a little.

How many miles has it done - if its been on modern, retarded service schedules, it probably needs a couple of quick changes to flush it through.
Just over 10k, bought near as damn it new and less than 4k since last change...

From Shacks earlier post ::)

Probably.

Does it feel slightly disconnected as you throw it through a series of bends?

Re drop links, lop off the bottom nuts, then apply full lock and lop off the top one :y

Use weapon of choice... Personally 1/2" socket of suitable size and a breaker bar having first fitted a thin spanner to the flats.

Hand brake front adjuster should not need replacing. Although the nut(s)* will need to be undone to replace the rear cable bar.

* be either a single nyloc nut or two standard nuts...
