  • I also have one of the cheap OBD dongles with the Torque pro app. Quite surprised how well it works, but you have to pick the right one for the car, took me three attempts until I found one that worked with the Modular engine management system 3 on my TF. Not such a problem as one worked on my other car.

  • I think the later ones were of the Hex variety, both my 2004 cars had the hex bleed screw fitted. This is a good memory jolt by the way, its a spare I do not carry in my little box of essential bits, so will make sure I get hold of one!

  • I think maybe a good heavy duty impact wrench may be the best way of undoing these. If a 3/4 drive impact gun dont move it, then its not going anywhere!

    Cheers


    I had this issue with mine when I had my cambelt last done. In the end I had to replace the arm that the bolts screw on to. The guys doing the cambelt change were fearful that the bolts would sheer off, they were that tight. Good job as the rubber engine mount was also knackered and they would not have spotted that if they had not replaced the arm. I undo and re-torque the bolts up again every year when I do a service on my car now.

  • Obviously prices differ from car to car and what you have done and which parts you need to be fitted, or indeed choose to replace.
    Expect to pay anywhere between £400 and £600 however I had quite a few new parts fitted and some other work done while it was on the ramp. The new Cat and heatshield were nearly £180 on their own. I think the powder coated bits were another £200. I also had a rear upper arm replaced on the suspension and gaiters fitted to the gear change crank.
    All jobs I could have done, but while they had it on the ramps and because its a bit wet and cold outside, I dont mind paying their reasonable fees for doing these extra jobs.

  • I had something similar on my car, usually after washing it. just a slight misfire just after starting. Not done it since I replaced a suspect coil pack with a spare I had.
    May treat myself to a couple of new spares next year.

  • SundanceUK created a new forum post in MGF/TF Pitstop
    Just got my TF back from Darren Hardy and the crew at MGFnTFBITZ who had Shadow in for one of their underside preservation treatment packages.
    I have treated the subframes before, but the stuff I put on only lasted a couple of years, so I had the works done, both subframes treated, powder coated undertray and cross brace and both anti roll bars with new brackets and polybushes, new silencer heatshield and rust treatment of all the underbody parts. Also a new cat fitted as the old one virtually disintegrated and a few other bits and bobs while they had it on the ramps such as brake lines and clutch pipe cleaned and proofed. Stainless steel fastenings where possible all round. Also a good waxoyl in those inaccessible areas inside the bodyshell.
    Well pleased with the results hopefully will keep Shadow on the road for a few more years to come and stop the dreaded tinworm from claiming another victim!
