Re: TPMS accuracy

Hi Lucky, It's not so much about having a little to much or to little air, it's about knowing acuratly what the pressure is.

Re: Merc with i key theft caught on video

The thing is, that most of these cars can be broken into, but not driven away. Any car can be broken into, just smash the window. So as long as it cant be driven away, then most cars are fine. This is scaremongering, by the tabloids and even by the BBC :roll: At the end of the day, if a professional...

Re: Weak Windscreen?

Re: 1.6 Tekna Overheating

check the front of the Radiator for objects blocking it. Could even be a lot of bugs i guess. How about giving the radiator a careful pressure wash

Re: 1st & 2nd gear issue

Sounds like synchromesh may be worn. If this is the case it won't get better and you will need to get the gearbox overhauled. I guess your gearbox could be low on oil and an oil change may help.
