    It was a dream job until BMW took over & promptly made most of the drivers redundant :-?
    When the new 200/400 came out Rover was employing around 300 agency drivers solely to put 500 miles on the clock of each car made [around the track] :omg: Don't ask me why :dry:
    Must have cost a fortune.
    It was Mainly BMW that killed Rover off as they made sure that any car in the range would not be competetive with their own models.

  • Sithmaull created a new topic ' Rear speakers crackling then fail.' in the forum.

    Ok, so i have an F, didnt have reaqr speakers when purchased so bought the rear speaker cover and was donated the t-bar complete with one working speaker. Bought 2 new 6x4 200w speakers and installed them My wiring loom didnt have any connections for rear spears, only front ones so i cut the iso lead from the stereo for the rear speakers and wired them directly. Started off fine and all working, but after a couple of days the rear speakers just begin to crackle very badly and stop working. The only way to get them to work is to set the sony head unit to mostly front fade with such a tiny bit coming from the rear you can barely hear it at all. Ive tried swapping the wiring around but all to no avail. The speakers output should be powerfull enough to handle more coming out then it does. Even the head unit comes up saying "failure". Ive installed new FLI speakers and tweeters in the front without a problem and they work fine. Any suggestions on why this might be happening? Here are the speakers i have installed in the rear...

    4" x 6" 2-way speakers
    Peak Power 200W (each Speaker)
    Impedence: 4-ohm
    Frequency Response: 100Hz-18kHz
    Sensitivity: 90dB/W/m
    Magnet Structure: 20-Oz
    Cone Material: POLY INJECTION
    Voice Coil: 1” ALUMINUM
    Tweeter: 1” POLYIMIDE DOME

    You'll need to take the engine bay off to feed the lambda sensor from the downpipe backup through the engine bay and back into the right connector. You'll need a 19mm or 21mm spanner for that I used a deep socket with a slit in it.

    Adopt the position of a upside down cockroach for an hour and you'll be fine lol.

    Another tip...

    As the old downpipe might be on the original nuts where ita connected to the catalytic converter you will have great fun trying to get them off. I cut the downpipe off with a grinder then attacked the cat easier to grind the nuts off.

    Get some stainless steel 'cat saver' nuts.
