Moss - SuperPro front suspension bushes £39.72

Do you need one set for each side or does one set do both?

Thanks

Ss1 panels

if you do take the plunge on Ebay, there was a breaker in Liverpool who had a set - DW classic breakers or something like that. Pretty sure in white.

sorn/tax

sorn/tax

Hello All,
I pay monthly for my tax and I wondered if I go for a SORN, does anyone know if the tax payments be suspended automatically or do I need to cancel the direct debit as well?

thanks

ss1 heater

Thanks, will do that before rather than after tea tomorrow!
The air coming out of the end vents is noticably warm, but when we unloaded the boot after we got home the stuff was certainly warmer than I expected so maybe a bit of both. What sort of heatshield above the exhaust would be needed?

ss1 heater

Hello Everyone, My 1.6 SS1 drove like a dream to and from Curbs but Clare was like a roast potato when we got home as she couldn't shut the heater off fully and the driver's window wouldn't open! Are the heater flaps notorious for wearing out and not shutting off? I took the centre console out tonig...

engine sounds like a machine gun

strange that it sat all winter and then started quite happily but two weeks after it has been serviced it starts playing up. I didn't do the service myself this time, for various reasons - could wrong oil or filter or anything else daft done during the service exacerbate the problem?

engine sounds like a machine gun

The battery was flat as well so I had to wait for that to charge up a bit before poking around. Just started the car and no noises at all. Oil under battery was from dip stick not being re-seated properly after checking the oil when I first started the car up and heard the noise! Will leave it to se...

engine sounds like a machine gun

Hello everyone, my 1.6 cvh has been standing a week away from home and when I started it up, it sounded like a machine gun - very loud clicking noise. I had little choice other than drive it home gently and 100yds from home the noise suddenly stopped. When I opened the bonnet, there was a lot of wha...

That's interesting about the contemporary test reports Roger!
Are these types of aftermarket cap interchangeable? I haven't got access to the car at the moment to check, but I don't think I saw a manufacturer's name in it.

petrol!

thanks folks, as you can see from the photos, the whole assembly is aftermarket. 1a.JPG 1b.JPG When fitting the new filler neck hose I undid the little screws holding the top ring down hoping to move the neck out of the way but although it wiggled a little bit, it wouldn't really move and I am not s...

petrol!

Hello everyone, my SS1 is leaking petrol from the filler cap. I filled the tank up on Monday and pretty much as soon as I drove it away I could smell petrol. This continued off and on over the week and yesterday I realised that the top of the petrol cap was wet (with petrol) and there was a smear do...
