    Drivers Side Window Switch Issue

    Another tip is lukewarm water on the seal where the window joins the door until you hear it give. That's where it tends to stick. You can put silicone spray on the rubbers which does help, though I just do the former these days.

    Drivers Side Window Switch Issue

    Really common when it's icy. With doors closed, hold down both window switches for ten seconds and then the same on the way up.

    West Yorkshire Meet

    I will try, though it depends a bit what side of Yorkshire it is, as I live in South Manchester.
  4. The engine has not had a full rebuild. It has had the cam cover off, cams removed and valve springs changed.That is all. When I had mine done I left it a full 10K till the next service before I changed the oil as per the service schedule.
  5. That doesn't seem too bad on balance as it would be hard to absolutely prove what caused it, despite all of us having a good idea what did! You will get 12 months warranty on it, so if there are further problems you'll at least be well covered.
  6. I'm afraid I do not know, as I've not been in that situation. I've got agreement before work has gone ahead, even if it means waiting. I wouldnt worry too much about the courtesy car, they won't be really.
  7. Agreed it's worth asking for that, as I had this when I had my wiring loom replaced. To pay the full cost would have been thousands. It still wasn't cheap, but was a lot cheaper. However, in this case it would likely come down to who had the cam cover off last time and misapplied the sealant who you'd think would be more liable. If the OP knows that information then that would help.
  8. There is no reason to be any difference, Nigel. It's not like buying a house!

    Oil starvation on track

    It's not really an issue as such as long as you have adequate oil in the sump. I've never had any problems, run the same tyres as you and have been doing trackdays and sprinting in the car for seven years now. Adrian does run an Accusump so has a dry sump, but he does run aero and 265 wide 888's!

    MartinT's BRZ

    Put a screwdriver to the oil pump and see if it's that. Popped over to see Gary from RRG earlier and he was telling me that Andrew Lowe had a similar problem, like a knocking sound. The oil pump was getting noisy.

    Geo and alignment numbers

    That's a shame, Dan. Really you need a print out to know what the settings are as you cannot tell by eye alone. I used to geo setups myself manually, back in the day before Hunter alignment machines. But at least I knew what settings I had done. Rear toe is very critical. Camber is not so important when it comes to stability. I would take it somewhere you can at least check the settings as you don't want to end up backwards into a hedge.

    Geo and alignment numbers

    Half a degree will not really make any differences. It's the toe settings, particularly the rear which change how it feels in terms of stability. More toe in on the rear equals more stable and the opposite is true of course. What are your toe readings?
  15. Enjoy the drive home.
