Re: Suggestions for dash cam for my TF

£100 buys a lot of dashcam nowadays. The one I have for personal use was a £15 cheapie from ebay, does the job when I remember to use it. The one in the truck was supplied by the company and is built into the satnav, I would recommend it but they are nearer £300. It records a split screen of video a...

Re: How do I replace the rear subframe mounts?

Jim I put a few drops on the visible joints on the mount to body bolts several times over the week before trying to undo them. I had to cut and or grind some of the large nuts to get them undone, even with a impact wrench. Even a 2004 car is 13 years old, don't expect it to be easy. The MGF mounts a...

Re: Exhaust repair

I always use firegum, but if a joint isn't quite right that's not right. I'm seem to remember being told that you can't use exhaust paste that close to the cat. You shouldn't use paste before the cat as if any hardens within the exhaust and then gets blown off it will get shot at the cat matrix lik...

Re: Overheating Issues MGF VVC

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I would start with replacing the header tank again and then rebleed all three points. Cooling system info here.

Let us know how you get on.

Re: Buying an MGF

Obviously the lower the car is the longer it takes but it shouldn't take more than an hour for a pump up.

Lots of info here

Hi and welcome to the forum

Why are you travelling that far for a car, there are plenty of MGFs available nearer to home.

Re: subframe bolts.

I was looking at the old bolts for the front subframe tonight.

The car appears to have had an accident in its earlier life and the subframe has been off, the mount to body bolts were coopereazed and the mount to subframe bolts were thread locked, I shall do the same.

Re: MGF key FOB woes

The cost of recovery and garage charge out rates will be more than offset by the small cost of the pscan.

Re: How do I replace the rear subframe mounts?

I am currently doing similar, I had two difficult bolts so every night for a week I put a few drops of plus gas at the point where the vertical bolts meet the mount and where the mount touched the chassis. After a week both came undone at the first attempt. The horizontal bolts are hard work, even m...

You need the suspension at the correct height before getting the alignment done.

A few USBs are rated at 2amps and sometimes more but many are only 1 amp, make sure you have sufficient for your needs

Re: 12v power supply in glove box

That will do the job. I would take a power feed from the fusebox, probably the one under the bonnet. I would earth it on one of the bolts that hold the fusebox down. However be careful taking the power from here as it will be constantly live so any device left switched on when the car isn't in use w...
