At least it didn't fail on big holes in the chassis rails and sills which mine certainly will when its MOT is up on the 12th december. so hopefully its a case of a good grinding and repaint and your car should be good for years to come..

Omega General Help / Re: estate ., rear wiper blade
« on: 01 December 2017, 21:50:26 »
My rear wiper is rather knackered too as it misses a spot on the screen. and yes I did replace the blade about 6 months back.

I did replace the board from a supposed working switch but like I said not a jot of light. but up until that point the dimmer never worked and the lights were at full brightness wherever the control was. I don't suppose anyone has a good switch they could sell me do they..

If the alternator goes in the car I have now then it will be looking for a new owner as I wont be repeating that same task when I replaced the one in my 3.2 end of..

Can someone help with a little problem I have. basically when I switched on the lights the other day smoke started pouring from the switch so I popped the bonnet and disconnected the battery just to be on the safe side. but now I don't have any instrument panel or radio lights at all and despite checking fuses and swapping the circuit board inside the switch I cannot get any illumination. does anyone have any suggestion as to the problem.

I've recently had problems with the light switch. when I switched the lights on one day it started smoking and when I investigated it it turned out to be a regulator that had split open so I removed it. but of course now I don't have any dash lights at all so I need to get hold of one pretty quickly as its a pain to drive at night with no dash lights.

« on: 24 November 2017, 15:41:08 »
The 2.2 manual estate I had felt really nippy compared to any of the V6 autos I've had despite the fact it has a fair bit less power. the trouble with autos are you're always waiting for the bloody transmission to make up its mind and do something..

The things next door have been driving cars around for months if not years without tax insurance or mot. and they like to deal certain substances and threaten violence and destroy your property if the mood takes them. like I've said before they're just SCUM.

Same here if I could have found some to do the job cheap it would have saved me the hassle of doing the pig of a job.

General Car Chat / Re: So what have you done to your car today?
« on: 16 November 2017, 00:23:54 »
I was wrong it does affect something mainly..the instrument lights radio lights heater control panel lights and when you switch on the side lights it turns off the transmission selector lamp too. hopefully theres nothing else amiss and I can just replace the light switch and away I go. I don't suppose anyone has one I could buy do they?.

Quickly removed the negative battery terminal after I switched on the lights which resulted in a cloud of smoke coming from the switch. luckily it was only some sort of regulator that had split open and nothing major. the fact theres quite a bit of electronics inside the switch surprised me but I'm not sure what the regulator would have done but it doesn't seem to effect anything.

General Car Chat / Re: Senator A2.
« on: 14 November 2017, 21:19:04 »
Reminds me of my white 2.5 manual senator. when started from cold it would cut out immediately until it warmed up. also the handbrake barely worked on one side and it was always fun to try to start the car from cold on a hill. I was nagged into selling it by my sisters current boyfriend at the time and to top it off he had already borrowed my previous black 3.0 one and managed to tear the seat back and stuff one of the rear doors in.
