Mine did that too before I started to use it regularly - it also made some odd immobiliser chimes too: I think it was all oxidised contacts, but cleaned them all and it's been as good as gold since :)

Clicking MFU relays.

Wiper problems I had were related to oxidised contacts of the multi-connector behind the fuse box :)

Ok, so the intermittent wire fm the switch is cut - only reason for that is it went to the 5AS, why would MG have done that ???

That's the boot lid done and I've masked up and primed the bumper.

Started the installation of the new fire extinguisher today, waiting on some bits so I can weld captive nuts in.

I've also discovered the wire to the wiper motor that allows the park function to work isn't receiving power fm the mfu.

Plumbing for extinguisher finished, and some more green paint turned up whilst I was out so will be able to finish the rear bumper tomorrow :).

Getting there, rear bumper done, just the bit of body work between the bumper and boot lid to do - oh and the hardtop.

Blanked off the scuttle panel hole on the lhs with ally, to stop water running inside the car through the ducting for the demist and cooling me and giving me something to securely mount the T pull cables.

Today I at long last got the brake ducting done, it's take a while to work out how to do it.
