  1. Radio fault only appeared this week. Fan has been stuck on for weeks, but now the weather has improved no need for heater fan.
  2. Radio problem resolved for now as I took it out, so should not drain the battery. The heater fan is as you say @RoverFolkUs. It comes on as soon as the engine is running and blasts hot air at the top fan speed. The digital display for the fan, air con etc is not working, disconected it but made no difference. Going to try disconecting the battery to see if that changes anything. I suspect the heater resistor might have failed but dont understand how this affects the radio. Mind you if changing a bulb or fuse is not a cure its beyond my electrical abilty.
  3. After reading in another post about posting I thought I would do my bit. Corsa is still on the drive and has been off the road 4 years I think, but having space in the garage now the 505 has gone I will get it in and see what it needs, wont be quick You will not be surprised to know that a 18 year old French car has electrical problems. Picasso has radio on 24/7 and the heater blows hot on full speed and also cannot be switched off. Going to try remove a few bits this weekend after disconecting battery hoping that resets something. Riley 9 No progress but I have bought some steel to see about repairing the chassis. Dont hold your breath
  4. Back in the day I worked in VW garage and you could order the plates direct from the factory if I remember correctly.
  5. Got a couple I took pictures of. Spark plug from our Corsa B and a piston from my Riley 9 after some white metal broke up. Needs a set of liners and pistons now !
  6. It was shovelled onto a trailer a couple of years ago
  7. Its getting like a BL dealership at your place !
  8. One for @brownnova. Seen in Market Harborough today
  9. Ad claims 12 months mot, it has only 6 weeks. I am in MH but suspect its a seller from the travellers
  10. I recently sold my 505 which i had owned for 30 years, but 20 off the road. I too did not have the welding ability and with 3 cars, 1 garage, needed a decison on what to do Which car means the most too you ? For me my Riley 9 meant the most, 505 was sold and Corsa will depend on how long the mot fail is. I did not feel sad when the 505 went and it has improved my mojo for doing the Riley. Keep 1 or 2, but only you know which one you would rather have Hope that helps
  11. Thanks Amazon Happily daughter and Grandkids are ok. They say its not their fault ! Must have been my daughter revering down the street at 30mph +
  12. I have been going for decades. A proper event with such a wide range of cars to see. Two particular memories come to mind, a 6R4 in the wet and a cira 1906 grand prix style car going round while it was snowing. Its normally bloody cold as well
  13. 5 months now. Would chase them, but have a 21 plate loan for all that time
  14. Quite often if you use the bearing number rather than application it can work out alot cheaper
  15. I was given this lhd R4 a few years, got it on road and used it for a while before losing storage and had to sell it. Sadly does not appear to survived unless it went abroad again
