Re: Dead battery

Providing it’s connected up correctly (re neg/pos earth)I don’t believe the car could have caused a fault of this nature that you wouldn’t immediately know about ie a massive short circuit I would jump start it with the battery in circuit and see if it takes charge The dynamo /alternator has much mo...

I believe the purple and black go to your interior light as a power supply pos and neg
The brown and black wires come from the interior light switch and go to the door switches from memory

Re: EBAY SCAMMER AT IT AGAIN

It’s the male menopause
I can’t remember where I’ve put things, I can’t see anything when it’s in front of my face, I don’t know what day it is
All I’m missing is a hot flush

Re: EBAY SCAMMER AT IT AGAIN

When I first started looking at buying a Moggy I had never heard of scams such as this I found a pickup I liked not realising that good pickups were as rare as hens teeth I even spoke to the people and made attempts to view. I spoke to the bloke selling and his wife and they were very plausible I ev...

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
