    Hi all.

    Can any one point me in the rite direction.

    Horn not working 53 reg/2003 1.8, but making clicking noise under passenger side dash. The horn is a wired into a 40 amp relay under the bonnet drivers side but it's got no serial number on. I tried to get advise from Rimmer bros and ordered one that could have worked but no dice. Is it possible the horn itself is broken any ideas would be great as we keep getting bullied by other vehicles.

    Thanks
    Dan

  • Ok. Took it for a spin then left it ticking over in the sun. Temp guage went up to three quarters so I turned it off. Guess I've got some work to do.
    I've read that it needs 1 Bar in the system. Maybe there's not enough pressure.
    Maybe I should bleed the 3 valves again.
    Check for flow via the two pipes underneath the rad.
    Check the radiator fan, change fuse.
    The little hose coming into the expansion tank is clear, I've seen coolant pass through.
    Thermostat?
    Coolant sensor?
    I don't know where to start.

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks

  • Thanks for the info.

    Since i repaired what i believe to be the rubber hose from the thermostat (very short hose that does a 360) my wife has been running the car 30 mins each way for the last 2 weeks and all seems fine. The hose in question split and i'm feeling this was old age. The second leak was from the metal pipes underneath at the front and i simply disconnected both cleaned them off inside the rubber and the outside of the metal. Nothing further has happened and it seems to be running well. Temperature gauge is working and no further issues as yet!.
    Could you recommend a MGTF mechanic in surrey who's not going to fleece me, I would like it checked out by a professional until i get a better idea and more time to work on her (the MG!).

    P.S I had a car blow a dual mass fly wheel on the way down to France before and i am 7,000 pounds aware that the French don't do foreign cars well or cheaply.

    Thanking you all sincerely for any info you may have and your time.

    Hi all and thank you, this forum has saved us a couple of times already.
    we just got a 2004 MG tf with 37,000 on the clock stored in a garage. A coolant pipe blew on the way home!, followed by another leak the next day. I'm pretty handy but it is tight getting around the engine and i don't have the equipment to get the engine out.
    I would love any info on what work i may need to do as we are planning on driving it down to France in a few weeks. I have already done a coolant flush and change, replaced the engine bay sensor checked the brake pads. I plan on doing a brake line bleed and clutch. My worry is another pipe blowing, do i need to change the coolant pipes before the long drive, maybe not if they have not blown already?

    Thanks for any info and very glad to be accepted on here..
