Re: Problems with reving in 166
UPDATE re posts on this thread.
I knew everything was going too good.New maf new alloy wheels a new button on the key and was going for the usual chinese tonight.
Fortunately this time it wasn't the oil cooler pipes as occurred with lacey.Pomeos are still original .
Went to unlock car after using her all day and nothing happened .
I thought it might be the batteries in the key.
NO....On opening the key the wee switch fell out.
AAARGH...Alarm set and car locked .Openning her with the key would set off the alarm.
So i gingerly placed switch in position on open key a,pressed gently and car opened and alarm switched off.
Now use the key to lock and unlock car .BuT put switch in tonight to acivate the alarm and lock her.
Now need to search for chris's post on the switch.
ZF are your ears on....I was the one who mentioned key in the post.
Ans springs in the other one the old OSF spring curse.
At least I have fixed the steering gaitor with a new one even that wasnt simple as the outer diameters of the gaitor in old and new were different so it was a complete strip of the seized lock nut which I was hoping to leave in situ and slide the gaitor over it.
One fault at a time...at least they are all minor niggles.
