pop-up headlights NOW INCLUDING HIDDEN HEADLIGHTS

I wimped out and originally listed ”Davrian (various)” but have just found a guide on Facebook that suggested the mk4 had popups. I’ve had a bit of a surf and found mk5 with popups too, so I’m going out on a limb and saying mk4 & 5 cars had them (obviously owners may have modified them later) The Da...

the DVLA are useless

So lessons (re)learnt: Take copies of everything you send to DVLA (my dad told me that in 1984 when I started driving). Try to do change of ownership at the end of the month so you don’t lose out on VED (that’s been true since you stopped being able to transfer the tax in 2014). Ask for advice on th...

SAR Massive irregular misfire

So it’s been moved from one white, to another. Both go via the ignition switch so should be equally dependable unless damaged after the switch. Let’s see if it reoccurs.

I've stretched my handbrake cable and now have no warning lights...

A sudden apparent stretching of the handbrake cable usually means the cable has jumped off the plastic pulley and damaged it - you need to get underneath and have a look. The switch for the light is a bit flaky but if you’re pulling the lever past the little hole that the switch drops into, it won’t...

Straight 6 low oil pressure

IIRC your car had sat for a long time until recently? Did you drop the sump or just do an oil change when it came out of the garage?
