Re: Exhaust Question

In the picture there is a frayed hose which gets capped off by the golf tee. Understand that. I cannot however see how the hose connects to the 'cap'. I was expecting a male/female type arrangement. I would like to try this but worried how it all goes back together. Not clear from picture. Thanks

Speaker behind drivers seat

The speaker behind the drivers seat 'vibrates' when the radio is on. Only when say reasonable loud or louder. The 'vibration' can be made to disappear if you lower the volume. Any ideas please.

Re: Time to insure again

Just insured with Elephant for the second year and asked about the strut brace. Person rang me back and no charge. Somewhere along the line I seem to think Admiral were part of Elephant so if they were to charge you, you could mention that Elephant dont charge.

I guess it depends on your mileage. The more you do the more protection you get. I like them from a cosmetic point of view. They look good and so easy to spray a different colour to give the Z a different look. What I really think would set the car off well is to have a couple of fixed air ducts lik...

Drivers side front headkight adjuster

My 2002 3.0i went straight through the MOT with no advisories - great. The guy did say that my drivers side headlight beam was a bit low and he had tried to adjust the beam. Saw him try do this. He said that the adjuster was not working. Is this an easy fix please and it is a common problem. Thanks.
