Middlebridge spare wheel tray

I too cannot get my spare wheel in or out past the bypass valve unless it is deflated which sort of misses the point of a spare wheel. What's actually involved in reversing the valve? Mine currently has the wiring leaving at the front and it is this that fouls the spare wheel. Would be nice to not r...

Chassis number

Sorry, should explain. In process of importing the vehicle to Sweden so it's part of the vehicle ID inspection. I.e. making sure the vehicle matches the documentation. Step one is this check and then, when I get the new registration, a Swedish 'MoT', the bilbesiktning. That will have to wait untill ...

Chassis number

Thanks for the help. Found the number just where Mark said it would be and after removing spare wheel and degreasing chassis member the number should be clear enough for the vehicle inspector to read.

Rear heated screen

Thanks to answers and helping rule out wiring.
Replaced both wires to the rear screen which were not original and past their best Finally traced the problem to failed relay.

Rear heated screen

Thanks. It makes sense that one should be power. Just seemed odd to be coming from the strut. I checked with a meter quickly a couple of days ago but no voltage detected. Will have a better try now I know the basic wiring is correct.

Rear heated screen

Odd question. But how does the power get to the rear heated screen? I have two earth wires going from the screen to each of the gas struts but no obvious power lead.

Morning commute fight!

Seems dashcams are getting more popular. What systems do people recommend? And what are the pros and cons?

Head lights, side lights, full beam!!

I would guess an earthing problem. I once had something similar with my SE5a. Switch the lights on and the horn would sound. Wiggling the spare tyre would temporarily solve the problem. Untill I got round to cleaning all the earths properly.

Carcoon

That would be ideal Jim. In fact the garage itself is ok. Except for the floor sloping backwards with no drain. Hence the water accumulation problem. Temp in the garage rarely dips under 0C even when outside temp is -20C. In a perfect world I would extend the beam over the doors, install wider doors...

Carcoon

Thanks Trevor, I had considered this but I can reverse the car in the garage and then parallel park. Just that I can't quite reverse in and the be able to turn into a framed carcoon.
Looking like a normal inflatable carcoon the way to go even if a bit fiddly to put in and out.
