Scimitar se5a rear hatch lock.

fit a solenoid or cable pull then you can get rid of the lock - the rear looks better without it IMO

the DVLA are useless

Just arrived in this morning post - my tax refund ( three months as I hoped ) and my wife's death certificate so they must have opened the V5C docs I sent them new ones I would think will come - eventually

the DVLA are useless

It would appear that the only/best time to phone the DVLA is a Saturday morning at 8am. Finally got through to a human being after choosing one of three option followed by choosing one of five options - all five applied to me and my situation. Anyway as we had kept the original V5C documents ( which...

SE5a gearbox oil leak

Jubilee clips will hold the rods and stop them going into the box but of course that does not help as you have to take the cover off as well.

Front hub fitting

£70 must be a long time since you bought front ones now over £90 I think and "special" so can only be bought from the traders -I have tried fining them elsewhere. Rear ones are available though for 1/3 the cost

Front hub fitting

I did not think you could over tighten the nuts, the rear ones are set at around 230ftlbs.

the DVLA are useless

I can re-tax them with the V5C's which I have sent to them so they have them or I can buy two forms to get new V5C's Which you would have still had if you had followed their instructions? If they're not taxed, where's the refund cheque I wonder? I sent the V5C's back because I had not heard anythin...

the DVLA are useless

They are still useless - got a letter from them today which says the opposite I was told on the phone. The cars are not taxed and should not be used ( so I have been driving them illegally since May10th ) I can re-tax them with the V5C's which I have sent to them so they have them or I can buy two f...

clock repair

My quartz clock ( time smiths but made by Jaeger ) is faulty in that I cannot reset the time - it only moves the pointers about 1/4 of the dial so I need to take it apart. There are three screws holding the mechanism in place but I assume the black bezel has to be removed to get the clock out - unli...

1800 ti no fuel pump

Put you hand on enough voltage and you will probably wet yourself - I used to work with 60KV overhead projectors that would make your eyes water
