  1. Ok, i can add to this also. Before i moved to a DAB unit i tried a shorter bee sting aerial and it didn't pick up the normal FM channels as good as the standard one. The aerial unscrews from the base till it wont unscrew no more and then holding the black base with one hand just the aerial a tug and it should release from the base. The normal standard aerial will NOT work with a 'splitter' for DAB, you'll need a powered aerial or one of the DAB windscreen mounted jobs.
  2. I wrote a post up about this a couple months ago, and didn't really get to the bottom of the same issue as what you sound like you're having. We have looked at the pedal box as much as possible with visually looking, HDR Camera photos taken and checked and we had a bore scope around the back where the naked eye and camera cant see and we don't see any cracks, hairlines or anyhting of that nature. My creak is sometimes there and sometimes not. It comes and goes and ive jsut come to the line of thought that ill continue to drive it until something gives, but all the pedals are the same height, the clutch pedal returns like normal, and opperates like normal. Ill cross the bridge of repairing / replacing the pedal box should it ever come to that or break it down for parts.
  3. Update. So today i managed to get it all fitted and results are great, for a 'windscreen aerial' I didn't really want the aerial stuck to my window as i think they're ugly things so tried a mixture of different places to try hide the aerial from view. Some had 'ok' results and some not so much so, i tried hiding the aerial behind the panel in the passenger footwell, using the metal as a ground but the copper flex aerial caused static when touching the body work also so that was a no go, and then i looked at running it up the and along the window screen to where the rear view mirror is but found it made the roof lining stick out abit which i wasnt a fan of. So i then ran the cable just up to where the passenger side tweeter is and used the metal there to anchor the ground and the little box, the aerial also poked down behind the bash itself leaving a much more stealth fitment. While not perfect it was something i was happy with, and the results are bang on crystal clear on all stations and works well.
  4. @LR5V Thanks for the link mate, for simplicity as gash as they look i think im just going to go with the window mounted one. which way would be best suited in your opinion of running the cable up the window side? (my old portable unit had a window sticker but i actually just used to lay it in the troff bit and still worked fine) but this time i wanna do it properly
  5. @LR5V Thanks for the advice on the mount, it worked great. Yeah i have to say im really not a massive fan of the window mounts, ill take a look at both options and let you know how and what i went with mate. Thanks again for the advice!
  6. So after having a DAB unit in for a while and enjoying it i bought a refurbished Sony DAB+ Headunit to replace the unit i am currently using. My question is can i buy a 'splitter' where it has the normal FM aerial and DAB connector in one so i can just use the normal car antenna so i dont have to have a window mounted aerial, or is the signal not strong enough? (Sorry to bump an older thread, just thought it was better than starting a new one)
  7. Yep, when i was reading the folder full of paperwork i got with my car when i bought it. It had a invoice for new indicator stalk and fitting. So im guessing when they go its a known issue.
  8. Great write up, and thanks for coming back to post you got it sorted. Great attention to detail in the posts, and it will no doubt help others out in the future!
  9. Thats good to know, with some luck its not that but IF it ever was to go would have to see if its actually worth replacing or selling and picking somehting up till i get my project built. The car owes me nothing to be honest. From what i see the replacement is pretty straight forward just the sheer bolts can be an arse looking at it but nothing we can't sort. I think its more picking up the parts you need after doing a search online i can't actually find one new.
  10. So took the car out again yesterday, and didn't squeak. Tried to check pedal box out as much as possible as above but couldn't see anything what looked cracked, stressed, looked out of sorts. Pedal works fine, returns as normal, sits right, feels right, no crunching in the gear changes. Haven't tried that yet, thats todays job going to go pick some up and give it a good going over.
  11. Ok so that solves that issue, and makes me look a little silly in the process. So maybe a stiff cable? Any ideas?
  12. So my Arosa mk2 (1.0ltr S, 2004) has started to make a Squeak when releasing the clutch pedal. My very first thought was here comes the pedal box issue, but we examined it best we could without physically taking the pedal box out and everything looks fine, no cracks or signs of stress in the pedal box infact we think its been replaced before i bought it. So we removed the drivers seat so we could get a proper look under and at the pedal box, with lights, a bore scope and i took some HDR photos and enlarged them on computer and all looks fine, the clutch pedal operates as should returns just fine, sits the same height as brake pedal etc. EDIT - Cable controlled doh! Any ideas guys?
  13. Sorry Stu mate, Thanks for putting that up i used that and got a set of plugs from eurocarparts. Just got to fit them, but the weather has been ass this past week so not got around to it.
  14. I use around £10 a week in fuel (petrol) driving to and from work and pottering about daily. Its cheaper to run the Arosa than it was any of my motorbikes i've had doing the same thing (and loads warmer this time of year)
  15. Whats everyone using, or could recommend i use for a 2004 Arosa 1.0s
