The manifold-to-cat section of exhaust nut is about three odd quid. I lost one when doing an exhaust, looked for it for ages, eventually bought one brand new Vx, then of course found the original on the drive a day or two later  :D

More good points! I'll pass that on too. Her feller is well into his computatering, so fairly handy/familiar with squinting at PCBs and the like.

I'll pass the message on. By the way, depending what's actually required (I'm still presuming a new chip only, paired to the car) what prices are we talking - happy if you'd rather send info via pm.

Thanks, Mr DTM  :y

Who's furthest north on here with Tech 2 services? as the car's in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire.

Suppose taking a day trip to travel to someone would be an option (would be her first long-distance drive) too.

General Car Chat / Corsa C new key/chip?
« on: 27 January 2019, 23:12:01 »
Hello chaps

My sister has gone and got herself a first car, Corsa C 1.0 12v. Seems a decent one, very low mileage, few niggles, but good for a 15 year old car.

Key started to get a little troublesome, the spare works perfectly. So... whats involved in getting a new key coded? I'd assume it's the same basic setup as a MFL/FL Omega. The physical key works fine, buttons etc, it's just the chip which clearly isn't talking to the immobiliser 100% reliably all the time.

So whats her options of getting a new key coded, anyone fancy the job / recommend anyone?

Sadly wasted some of your electrons.... the chip with a crack has turned into a full on crack. To be honest I was expecting it but many thanks for the replies.

Would have gladly gone down the repair route, so again, thanks for the suggestions. On the plus side my insurers use Autowindscreens. No personal experience, but just for some flesh on the bone I'm not berating Autoglass for the sake of it... but I won't go into the full story. Needless to say they got it wrong...several times in a row!

So we'll see how it pans out with these lads. Thanks again  :y

Ta. That I know, obviously if it's a new screen I will end up going insurance route, in spite of Autofarce's incompetence, but ideally wanted a man with a van who'd be able to repair it with the magic fluid,

I think it's under the 10mm max for within the driver's field of vision. Of course a call to mr insurance man will just go on the excess, so might as well go independent in such a case, that as my aim.

It's that time of year again - potato-sized stone decided to smash a chunk out of my 3-yr old screen 'tother day.

Having had about enough for one lifetime of Autoglass and their levels of service, anyone got any recommendations for alternative routes for a repair (hopefully it will be just a repair not a replace)

Ta in advance  :y

General Car Chat / Courtenay Omega spotted - xxxx LOZ Coventry
« on: 07 January 2019, 10:53:06 »
Just walking home from work and spotted a very clean Courtenay badged FL Omega (in rare Star Silver) in the Polski car wash. Looked like Irmscher tailpipes, but split and mounted widely spaced, symmetrically on the car, for a nice look. 5 spoke Elite/MV6 wheels.

Sadly no chance to get a pic anyone know of it?

I buy mine the same way, best I've done is I keep my 5 litre bottles whenever they are available/see people chucking them out. Propping the drum on the decking / a couple of spare wheels etc and pour into the smaller bottles using a large poundland funnel works well.

I like the idea of a tap, though  :y

Sounds like, as ever, herculean efforts have been made to maintain our little community of soapboxes. Thanks to those responsible, the OOF lives to fight rant another day!  :)

Sorry to hear you're going, but delighted you have even bigger and better things ahead of you. Dont be a stranger, and more than happy to do business in the future, as I'm sure most/all on here would say the same!  :)

Worst case new Cruise unit (vacuum actuated, cable operated, if I'm right it's slightly different to FL DBW models)

Best case scenario... new stalk! Either fiver or so for a known used, or maybe 30ish for brand new / new old stock.

Option 3... squirt of electrical contact cleaner inside the 'gaps' at the stalk switch may sort it, they can gunk up after extreme age / use  :)
