Re: Mass Air Flow Resistance Range

The flap type air flow meters where always prone to failure.
You can prize off the top plastic cover, check and clean the resister coil of wire. That's normally faulty.
We used to have loads fail if they ran on LPG. Due to a backfire

Re: Has anyone actually put a fully crash-tested bed in a T25?

Do they even do one?
If so, that would be the safest place to sit in a 25.
Lack of crumple zones etc.
