Se5a running hot

Afternoon all, I am after a bit of advice regarding the cooling system on my Se5a. I finally got out for a run on Monday after about 3 months and noticed it was running hotter than normal, even taking into account the hot weather. Around town it was reading about 95 so a bit hotter than normal but w...

Indicators

As the others have said indicators not flashing is generally down to not earthing properly especially as the fronts are working, but if you have a volt meter check you have power on the cable first then try running some wire to a good earth.

Alternative to plastic switches - SE5a "cockpit"

I was looking at changing mine as a couple are a bit stiff even after taking them apart and cleaning them and found similar rocker switches on car builder solutions web site, havent measured mine yet but i think will fit the existing holes and they illuminate as well.

SE5A windscreen wiper

Hi Andy its a little squareish piece of metal with a threaded hole in the middle and a concave side that clamps the wiper onto the splines on the wiper shaft. I think I will probably have to buy a new wiper. Thanks for the reply.
