However, they come in two dish sizes apparently....

ET50 or ET39.

39 is what I'm looking for (like these ๐Ÿ˜ข)

V5C just plopped onto the mat.

Afraid not. Must be this data protection legislation. I was curious to know where the previous owner of mine lived.

Mine's Essex registration, bought by myself in Suffolk, currently in Norfolk.ย

Ahh.... 'Extreme Stress Testing' of cabin demisters ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ...

Driving through the biggest, monsterish thunderstorm evvah โ˜”โšก๐ŸŒฉ๏ธ... I notice the screen and both front windows are fogging up >> Demist selected/mid warm heat knob/ force3 fan ... ๐Ÿค” Nope ๐Ÿ˜ง ... still losing vision!

HOT as furnace + Gale force 4 fan... Slowly recovering/fogging retreats up drivers window โœ”๏ธ.

I'm not actually complaining [it does work!] but melts your face in the heat. I know some cars have a sort of pipe duct - coming into the door gap and linking to vents along the bottom of the window. Probably very effective >>> not Getz >>> just a slot in the edge of the dash top and 97.73% of the 'warm whoosh' doesn't lick the glass/defogging ๐Ÿ˜•

I'm going to 'lash up' a 1/4bottom, off a 2L coke bottle, and see [pun...!!] when the thunderstorms are on again IF a redirect of the defogg jet will clear the window any more effectively/quicker. The dash is massive and if it was to work ok it won't be a bother ๐Ÿ‘Œ.

Bring It ON ๐Ÿคฃ

Well, well, well......

I contacted a guy on Fleebay, a few days ago and asked him to look at the ET50/39?

He got back today and said he couldn't identify the ET number... BUT... As he was sick of tripping over them, I could have the four NIX... aye NADA ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฅณ

...... Teeside was cruise missiles @pronto ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ

Still in the back..... Will check/unload a bit later

Has it got a cabin filter? Always worth changing that if you have defogging issues

I'm not one to worry....much....

I popped into my local 'oily rag' outfit, looking for some Cambelt action (I have the Gates kit), and with a mildly timorous smile he asks 'pop the bonnet' >>> peering at the cam cover end, stroking his bottom lip, he opines 'well, dunno, like...yknow... cam locking tool, yknow...'

I said "it's a single sprocket and the second cam is chain driven, seems straightforward enough"...."You not ever done a Hi n Dri'?"

He asks I ring him tomorrow afternoon, when he has [Utoobd] looked into the doings...

He's cheap, he's local, he's enthusiastic, I'm a cheap fu#k.....

Re: the fogging -

I gave my front screen a good clean with some glass cleaner last night ( the good studd that smells like vinegar mixed with catpiss) and I can report that nonsuch fogging occurred on my journey home this morning.

"Why dont you try it at home at home?" As Anthea Turner once said on her 'Aerobics a d Bean Flicking' dvd.
