:lol:Oh yes TB, thinking of taking it up as a hobby, marginally better than poking my eyes with sharp sticks !
Almost chickened out yesterday as the car was in at a well known indys for the cambelt job. The drivers window still needs adjusting so as I was leaving in the loan car I casually said " Oh, if you have time can you adjust the drivers window, so long as it doesn't cost much ! "
Well it wasn't done as the estimated cost was about £120 so it looks like I'll be digging out the kneepads again soon !
I take it the car locks OK from outside? I would remove one door card and see if it all works properly, if it still doesn't I'd take the other door card off and try again.If it locks properly from outside and in with the door cards off it will prove one of the door cards was trapping the cable. As Nige siggests, try WD40 first though...
Is here some ho knows or have soms documentation about which color is the ignition and which coler the starter cable is? Iike shown in the photos I have 2 blocks coming in the key cilinder.
the first block has the colors: yellow - red and red/black
the second block has the colors...
While doing a cambelt I decided to try & tidy up the parts but they've actually ended up looking worse to the point I wish I'd just left them covered in oil residue.
I've used Alubright to attempt to remove the corrosion but it's so bad I'm thinking of taking them somewhere to get them acid...
Many of the models on here have a ''What did you do to your .......today'' thought it might be interesting here for our beloved 916s.
I'll start the ball rolling.
I have a Busso Spider and she was due an annual service:
1. Changed the oil and filter
2. Put a foam Pipercross (lifetime) filter...
us Alfa drivers know we have the best looking cars on the road ;)
if you have seen another GTV or 916 Spider post it in here and find out if it was anyone on here :D
the GTA crew got this in their lounge so why not have one in here too :thumbs:
