Seat foam replacement

I have a Holdsworth 3/4 width bed, the foam and upholstery is exactly the same in the photo, (only difference mine has rear seat belt pillars at the sides), the foam feels shot and quite a uncomfortable sleep and sit on, I am looking to get this replaced.
Anyone have any recommendations?

Re: Exhaust

I had this job done by a garage on my early water cooler in 2018 and it was slightly problematic, they used a induction heat tool and I had 1 stud snap off, the most awkward one into the thermostat housing, but had all the studs removed and replaced with new steel threads with copper nuts. Exhaust w...

Re: Should I be worried

This was mine 2 years ago so yes be concerned, as they rust from inside out.
I went for both replacements, wasn't cheap but it's a serious job out of the way!

fan heater control knob - better version or bigger

I know a minor query in the light of what's going on.
Though anyone know if a different fan heater control knob can be fitted to a T25.
I replaced my switch last year but the new knob is rubbish, just keeps coming out in hand and sometimes just doesn't operate the switch, as just feels too loose.

Re: Electrical noise around rear upper glovebox area

Just to say I think I have solved this now! I have an additional bus-bar auxiliary fuse box (which powers my lighting, propex, cig lighters etc) and 1 of the blade fuses started working it's way loose and making a bad connection (though pulled it out and I broke it in 2). I have to put another fuse ...

Re: Electrical noise around rear upper glovebox area

Ok thanks This is a photo I took last year when installed a new 43 relay. I'll have a look at the weekend and see if I can see anything. I also have an an additional auxiliary bus bar fusebox near to stock fusebox, which runs all the cig lighters, propex, fog lights etc. I might temporary de-activat...

Ok many thanks for this, I'll have a check. If something is arcing surely that would that not blow the fuse?

Electrical noise around rear upper glovebox area

Hi All About 4/5 months ago I had my windscreen wiper motor and heater blower replaced all good. Though, now a what sounds like a arcing/shorting noise occurring, what seems like behind the glovebox (or that area) above, it’s not constant, but comes and goes but mostly comes on when in motion (thoug...

Re: 1.9dg wiring confusing me, previous bad bodges!

Anyone know if I should have a relay fitted in the engine junction box or is that only on diesels ? Yes, you should have a relay. It is switched by the thermo switch in the left hand bend in metal return pipe across top of engine. It feeds the hedgehog manifold heater, and the anti-icing heater in ...

Re: Starter motor doesn't crank then cranks

OK thanks for the replies, the battery is fully charged, so can't be that I would think.
It's strange as just started doing it, but always starts on the 2nd crank.

Starter motor doesn't crank then cranks

Not sure this electrical or mechanical. When I turn my ignition key, nothing really happens, the starter like it goes to turn but doesn't crank fully.. Turn key again & cranks fine. Wondering if starter on way out, as sounds like it depends what compression the crank it at? Sent from my SM-N9005...

Re: temperature needle moved to right, LED permanently flashing

The header tank (one in engine bay) must be full to the brim, it doesn't take a lot for level to drop & set off the sensor. So check the levels first.
My levels were dropping due to faulty darlek cap, tho replaced that & upgraded the relay & all good.

Re: temperature needle moved to right, LED permanently flashing

Probably as your coolant in the header is low. On the early models when header tank gets low, red light flashes & needles swings to max right.

I changed my relay to the modern version, where red light will flash (if header low), but won't swing the needle.
