Warm Welcome
« on: 10 September 2006, 06:39:27 »

Thank you every one for the warm welcome - I feel at home already. I have, already found some very valuable information in the forum, and I'm going to go ahead with the cruise upgrade if I can find a new stalk - also am going to try and get a new windscreen wiper stalk because the intermitant wheel is stuck.

Can I ask please (as I have as yet not touched anything under the bonnet) what size spark plug socket is required for my model.

Thanks again to eveyone - and keep up the brilliant job on this forum

Thanks for the info Autoaddict - I've already read you maintenance guide, but the size of the drive is not important - are the plugs 14mm or 10mm plugs. I have both size sockets but niether is magnetic, they've just got a rubber bung in the neck to hold the plug in on removal. Is magnetic a safer bet, if so I will go and get one.

Cheers

I don't understand about the size of plug, I would only used the recommended Bosch, or genuine GM plugs.

GM, as I understand it, use Bosch branded under their own name.

Auto Addict,

Thanks for the info - plug size I will sort out - but in your experience is it advisable to get a magnetic plug socket. to be honest never heard of them - only used the ones with the rubber collar to hold the plug. If you recommend then I will get one - don't want to loose any plugs in the bottom of the deep hole

Rubber collar should be fine.
