Re: Oil / oil light on.

Hi. I had a problem with new oil pressure switches earlier in the year
See thread
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=116180

It seems that the wrong switches are in stock at a few places. I thought I was going mad for a while.

Re: How do you attach your curtains?

Same here. No poles. No tracks and nothing up when driving etc for a really clean un cluttered look. Earth magnets are great:)

Re: Monroe shocks MA803

Please can you confirm these would fit the front of a splitscreen? Looking at the photos the eyelets don't line up and I've read that you can't adjust these due to the air bags?
Cheers

Re: Save my bug oil dipstick

Is your green idiot light ok.
Take the wire off the oil sensor and touch it to the engine. Does the oil light light up?
The oil dipstick sensor just earths the bulb . Simple circuit.

Re: Oil pressure switch

That's good! Remember the weathermen are not very accurate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Yes I was going to chance it but the main roads out ended up close with floods at 4pm . Glad I didn't chance it now. Simon http://www.rochdaleonline.co.uk/news-features/2/news-headlines/103497/milnrow-und...
