Omega General Help / Rear Brake Pads pins and rattle springs
« on: 26 May 2019, 19:20:08 »
Anyone know if the springs and pins come with the brake pad kits? I've got a mechanic friend getting me rear discs and pads at discount out of local factor, I think it's Apec pads/discs. I already bought a delphi pack of springs and pins in anticipation of them not being in thhe brake pack, but they are for the solid disc by the look of it, pins too short and rattle springs too small.

Might just buy a set to be safe rather than sorry. Do these look correct ones?

It says listed for a 2.6 up to 2003 but they delphi pack I bought listed them as for this model but they obviously weren't. What a pain in the tits these springs and pins are!

Does the aircon work?

ie is the compressor engaged with the light off?

The compressor would usually always kick in, although I was having issue getting cold air out it, the pressure was ok last time I checked. I did have to top it up a few times last year, seemed to hold a charge for a while after that. In saying that the eco-mode button always worked.

As per title, the light doesn't come on display when I press eco mode button, what should I check?

I had the same problem with a locking tool I bought off of that famous auction site. The hole in the crank bit was not aligning with crank hole, even though the lock was properly on, it did tighten but the locking bolt started tightening off centre,, just like in your pic. It might be the locking tool. I had to buy another locking tool and it worked perfectly.

Or you could have a mercury grand marquis, which is for all intents and purposes the same car but I think more luxurious:

A bit like the difference between having an allegro and and an allegro vanden plas  ;D

I like the Traction Avant  :y

Was that not the first front drive car made? It was some bit of kit mind you!

Spotted quite a few old motors whilst out in the Algarve, rust isn't an issue out here, hence plenty of Vxs kicking about! Also one or two spots from home - no idea why pics are so big, made them all smaller before uploading:

breaking a 2.2? diesel or petrol :y

There is one diesel breaking in 'u pull it' but it's in Edinburgh, they also have a depot in York might be worth a look.

The Hands Free Speaker is probably at the back of the phone, so external Cover?, something blocking it, got wet and the speaker is duff or or got sticky wet and has dried up of the speaker is fukced.

Or, in settings (somewhere) phone thinks its using Bluetooth or Headphones when you speak the speaker on.

I once had a similar problem with a phone. It had a model specific cover, however it partially blocked mic/speakers. Fixed with a very small and sharp blade.

I checked with cover off and it isn't that either. You can hear it distinctly mute as soon as you press loudspeaker.

Do you use it with headphones or Bluetooth for hands-free?

Nah, just as is, no headphones or use Bluetooth. Funnily enough I took rubber cover off last night and back plate is all cracked. Don't remember that being broke.

No he wasn't. He was being a sarky bastid.  ;D

I was trying to give the benefit of the doubt. Then again, what doubt  ::)  ;D
Oi >:( I am still in the room...  :P

Currently on my fourth Xperia... Present one, XZ Premium, has three volumes, all controlled by the side buttons.

If the speaker works for media playback, then it's a settings problem... If it doesn't, then you didn't buy the waterproof one that you thought you had ;)

All volumes work, except the speaker, and I don't see any settings for it, just ringing volume, media volume and alarm volume. Turned off all the other sound fancy settings like clear audio and normaliser just to see if that made any difference.
