Re: Tracking down a leak

I’ve just done that job and lost a couple of litres of coolant. Just place a bucket underneath to catch coolant and make sure the engine is cold.

Re: Where does your temperature gauge sit?

A year ago my gauge started to point way over to the right, with the red light flashing occasionally. No coolant loss and cooling fan kicked in as normal. Swapped temperature sensor for new one and now gauge sits slightly left of LED

Re: blue or pink coolant

If your coolant is colourless it’s probably just water. I’d top it up with water for now and in the near future drain it all off, flush out and refill using pink g13/water mix.

Even if you can't see what you're doing , you'll be able to feel it. As for the cracked breather i...

Windscreen wipers

Seem to remember about a year ago someone recommending wiper blades from Home Bargains store. I went there today and bought a couple at £1.99 each ! Not tried them yet though.

Re: T25 Komet Skylight

Hi ,did you manage to find a skylight ?
O'learey motorhomes sell one to replace obsolete units which fit an aperture measuring 14" x 14".
I'm going to replace the skylight soon on my Autohomes Kameo soon.
They are located on A1174 between Beverley and Hull.

Re: Tailgate door card

Quickest and probably cheapest option is to fix door card by drilling holes through card into tailgate and secure with self tapping screws. If you cover card with fabric, cut a tiny slit in fabric were the hole is and you might never even see the screw heads. Alternatively fit plastic caps to screw ...

Re: Oil pressure buzzer (of doom?)

Sounds similar to problem I had..
Turned out to be a bad connection on the white multiplug connector under the dashpod.
Could also be a bad connection on the oil pressure switch itself.
