Heater hose connections, which way round?

OK - a follow up on this one. As previously mentioned, my Middlebridge MB60 has the heater valve set up as per the parts book.[image] valve.jpg [/image]. It is leaking very slowly from the operating spindle and I will need to replace it but i don't want to disturb it for a few days as I want to use ...

Heater hose connections, which way round?

Hi Jim, The valve is fitted in the hose which runs along the side of the right hand cylinder bank to the top connection on the heater matrix. I believed that to be the flow from the top of the engine but am always willing to stand corrected? The fan is single speed 14” Revotec controlled by a capill...

Heater hose connections, which way round?

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread - but it may be of interest to note that my car MB60 does have the valve set up exactly as per the Middlebridge parts list online. Possibly the valve was introduced during production sometime between MB50 and MB60? I was reading through the thread as I believ...

Replacement door speakers

From memory I believe they were very thin gauze - presumably acoustically transparent - primarily as dust protectors?

Replacement door speakers

Chris - mine were pretty much dust both front and rear. I'm afraid I just omitted them on reassembly - no downside noted yet! Sorry your not at Silverstone this weekend- would have liked to meet you and see G1 GTE on your car.

How to remove the Automatic Gearbox Selector Cover

20190707_191107.jpg 20190707_191053.jpg Ok - have solved the mystery at least as far as MB60 is concerned. The selector cover is screwed to the rear console itself by 3 self tapping screws. One is at the rear under the electric window switch area and the other 2 are on the sides set forward. I remo...

Thanks to everyone who posted - more or less decided to go with 91s as they seem widely used and no reports of any issues. Might help to keep the ride softer too. Cheers all.

Would any other Middlebridge owners reading this mind just posting whether they run 91 or 95 load rating - even if you don't feel able to give an opinion re advisability of either?

Thanks Peter, so in your experience the 91s have been fine. I'm thinking I might try Michelin Cross climate Plus which score very well as an all weather tyre both in terms of fuel economy and wet grip. However I'm not sure if they are available in 91. If not my second choice looks like being Bridges...

Middlebridge Tyres

I'm shortly going to buy a set of tyres for MB60 (standard MB alloys) - current ones are around 10y old and the spare dates to 1992!. They all look a bit tired to say the least. Not sure whether to go for load rating 91 or 95 - does anyone have a view on whether 91s would be adequate or indeed origi...

How to remove the Automatic Gearbox Selector Cover

How bizarre, mine is in the same position as the grey one (right back). I too cannot feel any screws at all at the front + no access at all at the rear. I'm intrigued now as I did consider removing my cowling as well. Looking forward to this mystery being solved. :D Mick MB 33 & 66 Mick, I never di...

Andrew it could be both reasons, the New housings and Chrome housing/Nacelle could be cracked or broken. I have found that Reliant fitters ground/filed the chrome housings to get a better fit on the plastic switch housings. Obviously the headlight legend can be swapped over for which operation you ...

Hi Andrew They should be the same, will check on MB 42 this afternoon and get back to you. Mark Thanks Mark - my broken chrome surround is around the electric window switches on the centre console. As a matter of fact - a further problem is that one of the window switches keeps trying to "squeeze" ...

Andreas what part of the housing is broken, perhaps a picture would be better.? I keep NEW housings in stock, plus I have a few of the Chrome housings that the switches clip into??.

Top and Bottom Hoses

If you have leaking core plugs then the boiling point of the coolant will surely be altered! True - I assume the boiling point would be lowered although the actual temperature would be the same. However we are not talking about rapid coolant loss. I think it is a weep more than anything. I can coll...
