  • David Aiketgate replied to the topic 'Seat Belt Bolt Size' in the forum.

    To update the information. As I had the car's engine access open I extracted a bolt from the seat belt fixing and measured the thread. It was definitely M12x1.25. :yesnod: I can only think that the wrong bolts have been used at some time in your car damaging the original threads.

    My mind is in overdrive as to what else you could have popping out of the door! However, I can't get throwing knives and belts of gold sovereigns out of my head, a la James Bond in 'From Russia with love'! :coat:

  • David Aiketgate replied to the topic 'Wheel nut broke! breaking car (discussion thread)' in the forum.

    Great discussion guys. I have to say I agree with all that's been said, so far. :yesnod:
    I think another driving influence on cars being scrapped or broken is the un-mechanically minded owner who falls into the clutches of teeth-sucking garage mechanicics. if you're told your £1000 car needs a head gasket and that'll be £1400 pounds please. What are you going to do?
    Over time, on this forum. I've seen many poor people fleeced by unscrupulous beggars :rant: £800 for new discs and pads all around, £1400 for head gasket etc. etc. :nonod:

    Well.. its been a few days since my last..

    Been sketching again... and as I have no door handles (inside or out) I reckon this is possible.. using one of these (one per door)

    http://www.umbrellaworld.co.uk/personal/mens-umbrellas/automatic-umbrellas/carbon-steel-magic-auto-folding-umbrella--red.htm

    Weld in stainless tube.. and a 12v solenoid that operates via a push button.. sprung loaded..

    Ok.. so if you are thinking to yourself 'WHY?'.. Im not going to explain.. you wont get it :P

    As my car is really a grand tourer.. with all new custom interior.. last thing I want is wet umbrellas inside it ;)

    Plan is to build one on a bench over xmas.. if I can get it working.. Ill fit one in each door..

    Because I can B)

    What David said. I had to change mine last week and it looks identical part number was PEH 100790 there is an updated one with a different part number which also looks identical but is more expensive. I went for the PEH 100790 and it fitted fine (2002 135)

  • David Aiketgate replied to the topic 'MG TF HOSE PEH101740' in the forum.

    I had this failure last year and it was caused by an internal reinforcing ring slipping out of the junction area and lodging in the end of the bigger metal engine coolant pipe! This simultaneously weakened the joint area and caused a partial blockage causing a pressure build up. Hey presto! burst hose... :rant:

  • really? replied to the topic 'seat repair' in the forum.

    i use a repairer that does lovely work on hoods and interiors, but down south west so perhaps a little far to travel.

    one full side panel including bolster, foam replacement, and all fitting was £65 inc VAT.

    which reminds me, i was supposed to take pics of their work in 'my other cars' thread. :slapme:
