Re: Mk2.5 Tyre Rubbing on Full Lock

Do you know if it has been used as a drift-car at some point? Might someone have fitted... whatever it's called... that allows extra steering lock for drifters?

Re: Mk 4 with lifeless steering

Way back in 98 I bought my first 5, a Mk1 1.8i Berkeley. I had to have the alignment done after a couple of months because, although it was fine in a straight line, it turned sharply left but very heavy right. Turns out I had negative camber one side and positive the other. I was told that whether a...

Re: mk2 1.8 exhaust , cat & egr

Hi Ebod On an otherwise standard car, there is no benefit from removing the EGR. The carbon canister just helps to absorb fuel fumes from the fuel tank to stop them venting to the atmosphere. They don’t get blocked or dirty. Again, no real benefit from removal on an otherwise standard car other than...

Re: Wanted Mk2.5

Well there is mine but probably not one for your mum. It has GAZ Gold Pro suspension, Larini cat & mid-pipe and Racing Beat dual rear box. Oh, and Mk3 seats bolted down, not on runners. No rust and never needed any kind of repair.

Re: Clutch Problem ?

If it was perfect one moment then gone the next, it could be that one of the mounting bolts has fallen out of the clutch slave cylinder, I've seen that one before. Easy to check.
