GTC door tongue

Come to think, the holders do take a few seconds to spring out when I open a door. I'll try oiling.

GTC door tongue

.....and getting the plate out involves removing most of the rear interior on the affected side.

wanted various se5a bits wanted

I used MGB seat foam and diaphragm in my SE5, the foam is a bit thicker so I sit higher, but it could be trimmed down.
For the rest Graham Walker or Queensberry Road should have all you need.

B post out of reach

I'll have a pair once I put the HT back on (when winter comes, although how I'm going to tell I'm not sure) and measured how long they need to be.

B post out of reach

Just as an update - since I've stripped the hardtop to refurbish it I thought I'd have a look at the threads inside the B pillar (is that the right name for them on a hardtop?) I made a 1" hole in the outside of the pillar and found a nut glassed in (one was loose, to add to the fun) but the main tr...

C3 dipstick tube

Hi
I notice that the dipstick tube is loose on the GTC's autobox. Is it just a push fit like the engine one, so a skilful tap will re-seat it?

GTC door tongue

The GTC door has an extra 'tongue' to help stop door rattling. Should it be set to rest on the lower edge of its housing on the body, or centrally? My doors still have a bit of a rattle.

Servo Failed?

Also helps to take the steering wheel off! (not to get the nuts off, just to get access :P )

XJS mirror rebuild

Take a deep breath and lever one edge of the glass - out it pops. It sits on 3 balls and socket joints that come apart. Then as you say just screws to undo. So now I have the 2 motors which both run but one doesn't move its operating arm. I think there must be a gearbox in the case but I can't see h...

Jag mirror mounts

Speaking from GTC experience the ones you need are XJS 'pre-facelift' mirrors but: I don't know if MB doors are the same as GTC and it's a real pain to separate bases from bodies without the proper tool.

Just out of interest how much torque did you have to apply to the hub nut to get it to the marks....ftlb or equivalent?
Dennis I suppose you're referring to my schoolboy error with the axle pinion nut??? In this case the torque was so small as not to be measurable.

GTC mirror adjustment

I think your white/brown may really be purple/brown and should go to the centre of the joystick switch. The centre terminal on the toggle should go to earth (look for a black cable lying around somewhere behind the dash?) Quite clear from Peter's brilliant diagram!
