Re: Unfinished project

Hi Andy

Sorry to hear you are having to sell, unfortunately I have too many projects already.

It will help your sale to add photos here and to list the work you have and have not done.

Re: maxi scan ms309 obd 2 reader.

Why did you buy this particular scanner?
Did it say it was Rover compatible?
Some scanners do not have the correct power contact wired up.

Re: Genuine factory MG/TF workshop body protectors

So they are

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-facto ... Sw8btZiaRw

My advice to any one interested is to bid through the ebay site, bids there are binding on the seller as well as the buyer.

As Sam said, the L series diesel is completely different to the K series petrol, I had one once in a Maestro and opening the bonnet scared me.

Re: Replacing Manifold

In plug the O2 sensor, it's easier to remove it from the pipe when it's off the car.

Remove the heatshield brackets if they are in the way.
Cut the pipes at the bottom where they bend.
Undo the head to manifold bolts.
You should then be able to remove the down pipe up and out.

I used a small punch to drift them round, couldn't justify the cost of a 46mm socket I may well never use again.

Re: Knob Issues

On the subject of heater, my fan control was only working on numbers 3 & 4, I happened to have a RezPack laying around and soldered this in place of the original resistor coils, all appears to be working fine on this front again now. Is this a weak area on the MGF? I know it can be on early ZS'...

I was tempted but I have all the parts I need from that pile and it was a bit far to travel to collect.
