Re: Door Fit

I’ve discovered the window frame is the problem
Is there any form of adjustment I can do other than perhaps a little manipulation?

Re: 1098 engine starts, runs, cuts out, starts, runs....

I would be interested to know if when you undo the fuel cap is it under vacuum
It may be getting starved of fuel if it’s not breathing properly

Door Fit

I really need to slam my passenger side door to shut it
I’ve had a play with what can adjust to no avail
If I remove the door seal it’s closes fine and sits well in the gap
Are all the seals the same thickness ?

Re: CIGARETTE/PHONE SOCKET SUPPLY

I am currently doing the same thing
I would have liked to have used a spare connection on the top of the fuse box but they are all in use
So I have gone to the bottom unfused side
Because of this I have placed the inline fuse next to the fuse box to keep the unprotected cable length to a minimum

Re: Is the Interior-light wire part of LOOM?

I have a 2 core cable in mine with purple and black cables running up the drivers pillar to the light ( + & - ) I suspect that this connects the the one you have in your hand and is the feed from the main loom
A further brown/purple comes from the light to the door switches
