Re: Electric seat backrest inoperative

I should add that my seats are full leather! I think that trying to remove that would be more difficult than the cloth! Am I wrong?

Re: Electric seat backrest inoperative

Blimey, I think I'll leave it for the time being then! I've only just bought it from my step dad, and haven't had time to enjoy it yet. I think I'll save that job for another day if it's that much of a job! I'll have a look at that thread, cheers both! I'll report back soon when I've had a bash at i...

Electric seat backrest inoperative

Hi all, my 94 850 T5 has the electric drivers seat, it all works fine, apart from the back rest, the motor operates but the seat stays where it is. What could this be?

Any idea's anyone?

Many thanks in advance,

Craig!

Re: 94 850 T5 radio replacement for standard size radio

Oh yeah, I won't be snipping any wires! I like to keep things original, so that I can easily convert it back to standard if or when I sell her! Many thanks for the help, I'll go to ebay now! That crutchfield has them, good good, so if I can't find them in this country I will have to get one from the...

Re: Washer fluid light on, how do I get the washer bottle ou

I check the levels once maybe twice a week, the car doesn't get used much some days! While we are on the subject of washers etc. I have noticed that the O/S headlamp wiper has grown a mind of it's own! I'll go out on a journey, don't wash the screen, but when I look the wiper has moved from the rest...

Re: Washer fluid light on, how do I get the washer bottle ou

I'm the kind of person that thinks, well if it's fitted, it should work. Especially when it goes to a new owner, I would like it to be in perfect condition! The wife moans at me sometimes, says I'm wasting money.

Re: Washer fluid light on, how do I get the washer bottle ou

Hi all, Finally got round to this job! Got it out, no way of repairing it, and cant seem to find one at the moment, so I'll just leave it disconnected until I find one! It is at the front, as you both so rightly pointed out. I really should have gone to spec savers! I'm just too busy fixing everyone...

Re: 460 hot starting issues

Do the ignition lights on the dash dim slightly when this happens? If not, then it maybe down to your ignition switch! Try testing for power down at the starter when it is warm and playing up, easier said than done i know, just get someone to flick the key on while your down there with a test light!...

Re: 460 hot starting issues

Hi, does the starter click, or do you hear it spin but just not engaging? Or is it just dead altogether?

This could be a problem with solenoid on the starter, it's not very common but I have had dealings with starters that refuse to work at all when hot!

Kind Regards,

Craig!

Air Con condenser not cutting in...

Hi all! Still got the 440 2.0i '96 plate, the air con was working fine last year, ice cold. I put it on the other day and it wasn't cold at all. I thought maybe the gas had gone weak, so I've just tested it, and it is up to pressure, put a bit more in anyway seeing as it was there, and still nothing...

Washer fluid light on, how do I get the washer bottle out?

Hi, I have a 440 2.0i on a 96 plate, how do I remove the washer bottle to check the level indicator within it?

The light is getting on my nerves now, and it will be up for sale soon due to an upgrade to an 850 T5, and want it perfect!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Re: Can the OBD reset the SRS light?????

Hi bill! I used the autodata disc at work, and 212 was the airbag light, in pin 7 like you said!

Many thanks for your help in this! Although the chart for the codes you have put up, seems to be incorrect for my vehicle! But still, it's all sorted!

Thanks again!

Re: Can the OBD reset the SRS light?????

Hi Bill, thanks for the reply! The battery disconnection didn't work, and I tried the OBD in number 2 and tested, it came back with a 212 code, which does not fit in with the srs light, as per your 'how to' pdf file!

Can the OBD reset the SRS light?????

Hi there, I'm new to this forum, but very glad I found it! I have a 440 2.0i on a late N (96) Special Eds. I had to replace the indicator switch and in order to do that I had to disconnect the airbag, not a problem until I had to drive the car without it fitted, to get a 24mm socket to remove the st...
