Re: Replacing a rear hub assembly

Hi Willow, Look under any car for drive shafts going to the wheels, if you find 4 of them there is a very good chance the car is 4WD / AWD. With a single engine car there is also a single shaft going from front to back. Electric cars may not have the front to back shaft as they can have an engine at...

Re: Replacing a rear hub assembly

Willow, if you cant work out for yourself if your car is 2wd or 4wd I would suggest you don't attempt this yourself, pay for someone to do it as it will involve removing items that are safety critical. You should find an independent repair agent (Garage) is cheaper. Is there a good diy guide for how...

Re: Microsoft Hololens

Re: Microsoft Hololens

I listen to a couple of tech podcasts and very little is mentioned about HoloLens any more. You cant purchase it any more as a consumer. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/hololens/buy A great idea that is very expensive & will probably just fade away, although there probably will be something else tha...

Re: Fuse for Trailer connection?

Here are a couple of pictures from my car. Yours may be a little different depending on how the wiring was installed. The pictures are near the positive terminal of the QQ's battery.

Re: Emergency Breaking

I'm too impatient, hate being slowed down. Though I'm older now & keep in the speed limit.

Re: Emergency Breaking

Gloucester, It all depends on your closing speed before it the braking sequence starts. You can get just a warning, light braking or full-on braking effect. I've had a warning come on many times doing over 50mph, always when a car in front is turning off the road and i'm driving around them. Must ha...
