The valve went in and I managed to get the washer bottle to

Re: Rear Lights on a 4 door.

Hi All
Thanks for the info re the spares that the club hold .I may well try them.
The two firms listed on as having them haven’t got them in stock I’m afraid.
I asked at a trade stall at a rally and they said that they might have some by the end of the year.
Regards
Steve

Re: Where to purchase cars?

I would definitely contact a local branch and talk to them about any members who might be selling their cars or know of one for sale. Also unless you are mechanically minded I would definitely take someone with you when you go and view the said car.If you haven’t got anyone you know to go with you ,...
