Re: spare tyre behind front seats?

I would have thought that tyre would fit behind the seats. had a similar problem. my van had old 195 x 14 tyres on it and replaced them with new firestones. which I found out would not fit behind the seat. changed to 185x 14 firestone and they fit. :cheers:

Re: Duluxe trim query

pondered this myself a few months back and spoke to an owner with deluxe trim at Stanford hall and he used a cloth when he opened the doors right back. placing the cloth between the two trim pieces. so it does seem to be an issue. :cheers:

Re: Interior noise reduction

if you don't have the heater pods in the system you can get a lot of noise through the pipe. they act as a silencer. could be a variety of little things as Nocky has said. :cheers:

Re: Broken Down

could be fuel pump failing. not delivering enough fuel, hence after a few miles runs out of fuel. then when you are cranking the engine fuel is gradually filling the carb back up. then you get going again. just a thought though. :cheers:
