Re: Replacing the dashboard plastic PCB

ok - I think i can see now from Bentley that it's a tacho connector (green wire) foil 9. I haven't got one so I will ignore that. If anyone that created the circuit board has any thoughts about my other connections to the pcb I'd be grateful for comments. cheers Zeb https://i.imgur.com/D6lwinq.jpg h...

Re: Replacing the dashboard plastic PCB

Hi, I decided to have a go at the original MidLifeCrisis solution to the dodgy foil. Things are moving along ok but I would really appreciate some help with the pin assigns from the veroboard to the original plug. I’ve mapped the 14 contacts on the original plug to the tracks I think they go to on t...

Re: tailgate wont shut properly

hmmm - still can't get this to work properly. Moved the striker plate inwards, worse and outwards better. Moved towards o/s worse and n/s better. But - it still wont move the locking part far enough to latch. I can push it to latch with my finger and when in latch position it locks. Pushing the tail...

tailgate wont shut properly

Hi, I would be grateful for advice please. I can't get the tailgate to shut. When I close it the gate just bounces back and won't latch. Push it hard or soft - it doesn't matter - still won't latch. I've had a good look at all the parts and they seem intact and working properly. I've pulled the rubb...

indicator switch problem

Hi, I have a problem with my indicator switch. Left indicator works well, but right indicator works very rarely. Sometimes it lights for one flash but that's it. I've taken the wheel off and I can see that the contacts are very dirty. Can I open the switch and clean the contacts? I can see three bra...

Re: dashboard lights

many thanks AngeloEvs I will follow your advice. The only weird part is that they were working and then suddenly not. Just out of interest, do you know which connexions are for the indicator lights? I just found a thread that discusses a pcb replacement for the foil - I think that's the next step, b...

dashboard lights

Hi I'm preparing for an MOT and I was testing the indicators. Whilst they were running the dashboard interior green indicator light cut out. The blue high beam light has also stopped working. All of the main lights work and the indicators. The red dashboard oil and brake indicators also work. I have...

Re: horn push contacts

Hi Aidan,
many thanks for comments.
I will try the old brass strip bending first (I wondered if there was a more scientific solution).

The steering wheel is one of these.

Re: horn push contacts

o.k. thanks tobydog - this isn't the slip ring though, this is actually inside the horn push on the steering wheel,

horn push contacts

My original steering wheel horn push contacts seem to be the worse for wear (arcing, intermittent horn sound). Is there a fix for this/replacement parts or is it a whole new push button? Has anyone sourced parts anywhere,

many thanks for help advice,
Zeb
