Surely that would only depress it more? What's needed is something to get it up, er viagara?

Forget about:
- GTX and go for Borg Warner EFR straight away.
- crappy Siemens injectors and go for Bosch
- old school Proalloy and buy Treadstone Performance + custom pipes
- Walbro 255 and buy AEM 340lph if you want to keep it in-tank
- OEM ECU and buy MaxxECU with adapter + proper tune

Prozac.

Just remind me again how do you get Prozac into a depressed button, or an airbag?

See if these photos work.

I'm sorry but I'm crap at attaching things.

I don't know why the white and blue were in

The red was having some pounds removed from the big useless know behind the steering wheel.

The Maserati has electrical gremlins.

Plan for next the next at night is to continue with caliper refurbishment, and then at the weekend I have some surface corrosion on a few places around the underbody that I plan to clean up, apply rust treatment then stone chip the underside of the car

Here you go

Yes the old larger bushes were knackered, the trailing arm bearings looked ok, but I’ve changed them to save do the job again

Where are the photos? smile

Btw, changing rear subframe bushes really improves the ride feel.

Couple more photos from today

Basically got both trailing arms and the beam derusted and painted today

Whilst it’s been a good day it just took a long time to clean and prep the bits

It’s been nearly a year of ownership.

Total cost of ownership so far..

Two new tyres (just went for the cheapest as Pirelli were £200 each).
New rear brake pads
Full service

So cost this year has been £500 which is actually less than the 1.9 golf! Failed its MOT on a side light (£1).

MPG is about 35-40mph. Maybe 25mpg around town.

I did the button fix a wee while ago, apart from the bits and pieces required for repair you need patience. I used the body of a cheap pen and a decent glue that you mix, the cheap stuff does not cut it. I was going to change the dash bulbs but chickened out as it was looking like damaging the holders. As you’d expect everything is a bit crispy behind there and easily broken. Someone had done work before me but not the best of workmanship. Not really a difficult process but I found feeding the wires back into place a bit awkward, then again they had been fiddled with previously.

It could be caused by iron staining - too infrequent coolant changes/flushes. I have used Oxalic acid in solution in the past, you don't need much say 1/2 teaspoon in 500ml water and it just disappears the staining. Its cheap and will not damage the plastic in anyway, its worth a try.

Hydrogen peroxide is possibly the answer. If you take a look on YouTube you should find a few videos of people restoring older electronics by soaking the plastic in a solution

Thanks guys, the only reason I was wondering about a common was it seems odd they go at the same time, I'll check the fuses just in case. The light behind the temperature selector had already given up I couldn't find the bulb or the bulb holder last time I looked! But the fan light and vent direction light did work, I notice that the 3 push buttons nearest the temperature selector are depressed out of position also, suspect the heavy handed MOT tester again.
Dave I think you diagnosed the airbag light a few years ago and the reset worked, fingers crossed it will again.
