Re: Late DG sump plug issue, any info?

Re: Stuck in 4th Gear - Slowly falling out of love with the van.

diagnosis is disconect the linkage from the box where the ball sits in the socket. There are two bolts to undo and the linkage will lower down (note where the plate bolts to the gearbox as it can be bolted on either side but one side will restrict the throw) Once that's out of the way you can manual...

Re: Heater blower woes

That said I have a two way switch which will do for now with mid and high sttings, but it doesn't fit the hole in the facia :oops: I think the switch contacts are a bit weedy in the original switch, has anyone found a replacement that has better contacts in it?
