Hi guys. First post.
My head unit has never been usable, it needs a code and I don't have it. So I'm not sure what its actually doing. Anyway, the point of the post is that I would like to know if I can get this bezel, fit a front loader and just be done with it. Or if there is something else I would need like an adapter cable. Or if I can just mod the cable thats allready in the car.
In case its necessary, the parts I need are:
Wipers. Can find these.
Filters, plugs, belts and tension pulleys. Needs a beefy service.
Rear right window mechanism.
Brake pads and discs. Midas has helped me with this once before. But they seldom have them in stock and its always a schlep to order them.
Drivers side sun visor clip.
And I think I need a new ABS pump. The ABS and the Handbrake light are on when I drive. And the rear wheels grind sometimes under heavy breaking.
Stereo isn't connected to any part of the management system, apart from the code.....no problem fitting a general replacement apart from a peculiarity with two of the power cables which are opposite way round from most cars.....think it just means it doesn't switch off with ignition.....but there is probably more info in the ICE section
For your bits, I can't help with SA suppliers, but several UK suppliers may ship. A few general points - if doing your own cambelt change, you NEED the proper camlocks - some people claim to do it with "paint" markings etc but its pure chance if you manage to get it timed properly that way, and can be expensive if its wrong!
There isn't a speedo cable - speedo is driven from ABS system so fault may well be linked with your ABS issue - could just be a blown fuse, but I have sold a few second-hand ABS ECUs so they obviously can fail. Handbrake light can just be low fluid level, though....which could be the case if your rear pads are badly worn...
Sun visor clip? If its just the clip at the mirror end that should be easy to find, but usually visor problems are because the other end fails and the visor goes floppy - needs a replacement visor.
Window mechanism - sometimes the windows just jam through lack of use, but if a replacement is needed it will probably need to be second-hand. If you can't find them over there I could post one, but it would be few weeks because Im in Tenerife just now. Don't know what postage would be, though.
Hope that's some help.
