  1. My SE had an aftermarket alarm fitted with remote locking fob, think it was Scorpion one. Not sure if dealer fitted though. Can you see a siren under the bonnet? Try disconnecting the battery. Pull the bonnet release, lock the car, open bonnet.
  2. I'm sticking with standard SE wheels and no idea what the balljoint switch side thing is?
  3. Yeah, already have the hubs from a Lupo Sport. So I can use the standard 1.4 lower ball joints if not going for a wider track?
  4. Have got some Lupo GTi front calipers and 256x25mm discs which I will be putting on my SE along with some Bilstein B8 dampers. ETKA shows different part numbers for the lower ball joints for the GTi with 256mm discs, so my question is do I need to get the ball joints for a GTi (6E0 407 365 & 6E0 407 366) or will the standard 1.4 ones be ok? Why are the GTi ones different with a longer thread?
  5. My mistake, that bung fits a manual block not an auto one. Had a look at a BBZ manual block I have hanging around and it is obvious where the bung goes, the BBY auto block doesn't appear to have a bung as the gap that the crank sensor wire passes through is very small. Panic over.
  6. Can anyone explain how the bung pictured below is installed? I thought it went between the starter motor and the block but cant work out the orientation of it. The part number is 030103037B. It is for a 1.4 auto SE. A picture of it fitted would be a great help if anyone has one. Thanks.
  7. Thanks. Was very pleased to find one with most of the options and an auto too. Think it might have been a dealers demo car.
  8. The leather seats I put in are also heated but thanks for the offer. Can you post up some pictures of the rear speaker panels?
  9. Would need to have the speaker grilles in them.
  10. That looks very nice. I think the red calipers look good, might have to paint ours too. Our SE also has aircon, sunroof, electric mirrors & windows. Have also swapped the heated seats for some dark grey leather ones. Have also got the matching front leather door cards, just need some leather rear side panels. Sorry couldn't find the tool to rotate the above pic.
  11. That's a limited edition SE, I have an automatic 1.4 SE with most of the factory options. They came with the Cambridge rear lights as standard.
  12. Can someone confirm the torque setting for the crankshaft pulley bolt on a BBY 1.4 engine please. I have found two settings, 90nm +90° for a flat head bolt and 150nm +180° for a recessed head bolt. This is the old bolt I will be replacing; I'm pretty sure I should be using the 150nm +180° torque setting but don't want to get it wrong obviously.
