  1. I want to replace the cam belt and water pump as the car has no history of these being replaced. Can anyone point me in the direction of any tutorials that show how to do this or any instructions please....
  2. So today we got ready to fit a set of pop out rear windows to the car. I thought it best that we check and then double check prior to fitting. It was only then we noticed that the pop out windows i bought from Facebook are not tinted and the other glass on the car is 0.2 tinted. Does anyone have a set of pop out windows tinted in 0.2 please?
  3. After testing all our skills in sanding, filling, painting and laquering a black indicator panel and then building broken the support brackets from plastic, glue and nuts/bolts this morning we have: Its still not 100%, but once the local breakers yeard opens up, i will find the parts i need. It does look better though! All credit to my daughter who has learnt the fine art of painting and sanding....
  4. Thanks @mk2 will give them a go as soon as lockdown ends. My daughther and I gave the indicator panel a go yesterday or the day before (lockdown days all look the same!). The damage can be seen on the right hand side.....
  5. Thanks @mk2 and @Rich. @mk2 - You dont seem far away - do you by any chance have any spare clips?
  6. Another update - we are on a roll. The indicator panel was damaged on the passenger side. You can see the damage in this photo: We removed the panel and pulled the front bumper away slightly to help. We are missing one of the locating pins that connect the panel to the wing. Any idea where i can get one of these? I also was gutted to see that the tabs on the bottom of the new panel we have sprayed to match the car are broken, so it sits all wrong. Any help much appreciated.
  7. I forgot to ask a question - when the blower is on speed 2,3 and 4 there is a rattling of debris, leaves etc coming from the screen vents and the interior centre vent. What is the best way to clear this out?
  8. A MASSIVE thanks to @Rich for sending through the housing for the cabin pollen filter. My daughter was very excited to fit this to her base spec 1.4 16v SE. "Thank you sir". We got this done in 30 mins (we prefer slow and steady) in between torrential rain showers, high gusts of wind etc. Some pictures for you.... The nasty area a pollen filter should be. I cant believe that a pollen filter was an option? Almost like saying a windscreen is an option...... 17 year old daughter learning her way around the car. The horrible old unit out and the base of the new part going in. The new unit it and ready for action. The cabin will now be allergy free bliss!! @Rich - I have Pm'd you. Please let me know and I can get over some ££ or beer money.
  9. That looks really nice. Ours must be the basic of basic SE spec cars as it has manual windows, no a/c and no pollen filter.....
  10. Thanks @Rich - i need the plastics that go around the pollen filter. Do you have these? Thanks @SimonJ65 - looks just like my duaghters car, minus the fog lights. I took the car to the local garage -they laughed and laughed and then laughed some more. On investigation, i had not centered the hub before tightening the two bolts. A quick wiggle and all done. We are very pleased with the result. I bought some pop out windows and rubbers and am going to install these as soon as i feel brave enough. A further question please - the heater/fan - seems to rattle at any speed over 1. Sounds like leaves or other debris stuck behind the centre vents. Any easy way to clear this area?
  11. Thanks @Mk2 - i have booked it into my local garage for later today.
  12. Update on my foolishness - I have been told that as the suspension work has been carried out the car requires full tracking or alignment. I will get this done tomorrow.
  13. Another update. Heko Wind Deflectors fitted! Front Calipers painted. I bought a set of Apex 40mm lowering springs from Ebay and yesterday i spent 6 hours fitting these after a day of Zoom meetings. They were a little challenging, but we got them done. I need your help though please. The front passenger side wheel is now sitting at an odd angle. It looks like it has far too much toe in, the top of the wheel is further under the arch than the bottom of the wheel. It wasn't like this before the swap. What have i done wrong? I will try and upload pictures of the offending article.
  14. I managed to change the whole thing and its working now. This site was a great help: https://www.t4-wiki.de/wiki/Tankdeckel Be careful. its quite a delicate set of parts.
