  • That's really bad luck.When you come back from your road test you've got another tough job to do - sitting down with a beer figuring out what to do to it next ! Would highly recommend the re-map, it makes an incredible difference.

  • Same symptoms as mine. Found my leak on the n/s corner where the roof, A post and window meet (supposedly). Not fixed it yet as the car is undercover and, like you I don't drive it in the rain usually. I found that if you close the door with the window partially open, then close the window, it doesn't leak. Have yet to find a proper cure. Possibilities are adjusting the window or replacing the rubber seal, but that's quite expensive. You could always try putting a thin rubber tube in the drain hole to push the rubber seal out a bit, but thats been done to mine already and it obviously hasn't worked.

  • Been a busy boy this past week.

    Fitted a re-mapped ECU from Kmaps, brilliant, can't understand why I didn't do it ages ago. Feels like a different car, much more 'willing' and with the custom exhaust the car sounds fantastic. Very happy bunny.

    Also replaced the drivers door locking mechanism due to the old one making a nasty grinding noise every time I locked it up.That must be one of the most fiddly jobs on the planet - but a good 'How To' from the site helped . Took the opportunity to re-vamp the door cards whilst I was at it, a good clean, new (well almost) leather pads to match the seats and quite a bit of contact adhesive on the back where the covers were beginning to peel away. New alloy door pins and escutcheons fitted as well.The old Alacantra pads, which are in good nick, are free to a good home if anyone wants them, just pay the postage and they're yours.

    My final stroke of genius was solving the mystery of a nasty clonking noise from the front every time I went over a pothole or bump at low speed. had previously been underneath checking the bushes and looking for anything untoward - nothing found. Even took it to my local MG man, Terry, who put it on the ramps and couldn't find anything wrong either. was having a bit of a clean up under the bonnet when I noticed the jack and wheel brace lying behind the spare wheel. Suddenly I was hit by inspiration! I took them out and put them in the boot, then went for a quick spin (any excuse will do). Strangely, the clonking noise has disappeared !!:doh:

    Low coolant alarm next methinks, must be a 'How To' on that I'm sure.

  • Dear Deirdre,
    I have just bought a Momo Race Airleather gear knob for my car. I haven't fitted it on yet, it's sitting on my desk.
    My problem is that it is strangely tactile and I cant stop playing with it - will this make me go blind?
    Yours etc
    Worried TF owner

    I am probably a wuss but I don't care.Took Buzz for its weekly spin to work and the aluminium gear knob was absolutely freezing again. Couldn't stand it anymore.
    Have you seen the price of these things, outrageous!

  • Mark is doing mine as well. Looking forward to it. How does your sound on deceleration/gear changes? I've already got a custom s/steel exhaust which sounds great at 3000+ revs hoping to add some burble and crackle to it. At the moment it just makes a droning noise when you take your foot of the go pedal. I'm an ex Essex boy (they now call it North London) and even at my age the boy racer streak still exists I'm afraid, but in a sensible way if that's possible!

  • Bloody funny Cobber - genuinely made me laugh. At the other end of the scale from magnetic motors are people like my wife, God bless her cotton socks. She is dammed good at most stuff and works miracles in the kitchen, but, she really is an appalling driver (this probably stems from having zero interest in cars). Bought her a nearly new Fiat Panda 4 x 4 about 9 months ago, so far she has hit a raised island in the middle of the road taking out both offside wheels and tyres, hit someone up the bum (not hard fortunately) and had an argument with a barbed wire fence, so now the car looks like its been in a fight with Freddy Kruger. Naturally, she is not allowed to drive the MG. that doesn't bother her, because 'it's just a car' she says!!! Heathen.

    I'm pretty convinced about the re-map if it works as well as it's claimed. Kmaps will do it for £240, which bearing in mind the amount of money I've spent on the car already, is nothing. Think I'll get my toolbox out tomorrow and whip out the ECU. Might even do a few other little jobs on it whilst I'm there. Only one last problem - telling the wife!
    I think some cars are accident prone. Had a Mondeo 2.0 Ghia X that had done 260,000 when I sold it and was still running, not a single knock in it. My present 'other car' is two and a half years old and has been belted 3 times already, not seriously, but enough to put it in the repair shop for a few days each time.
