Re: HRW illuminated switch bulb

And if its not still in the switch knob, you will also need a short lightweight coil spring to keep the bulb pressed into the switch contacts.

Re: TAW 606J

Well, according to the DVLA database it is taxed 'til June this year but has no MOT. The last MOT in January 2018 (fail) does not make good reading however!

Re: Drivetrain knocking getting louder on braking

This may sound unlikely, but my Vauxhall Insignia had exactly the same symptoms as your 2500 when I first bought it. The dealer did a couple of jobs on it before I took delivery, including new rear brake pads. Unfortunately they forgot to tighten the rear wheel nuts up afterwards! Worth a look, I su...

Re: Interior moulded cardboard parts

Pretty sure Chris Witor used to do them, but I can't see any on his website at the moment.
Must be worth a phone call to him, if anyone knows, Chris will know!

Re: Indicators dim but hazards ok

Hello Llessur, you may have a malfunctioning night dipping relay. It is mounted in the boot, probably left hand side near the hinges? (Memory failure) It should only operate when the lights are on and puts a resistor in line to dim the indicators and brake lights. By pass this and see what results ...

Re: Late 2000 Steering Wheel Centre - Wanted

The only way you could get something like it that wouldn't look out of place on a 2000 is to fit the one that had the word 'TRIUMPH' in the centre instead of '2500', although I can't think at this moment which model actually had these. My 2000 has one of these fitted to a PI/S/Stag wheel, it came o...

Re: Centre console removal

IIRC there is a spring-loaded plunger on the underside of the spindle of the fan switch knob, and some, but not all, of the choke cable knobs. Just depress the plunger via the little hole on the underside of the knob. If it's a non detachable type on the choke, disconnect the inner cable at the carb...

Re: Quickest way to get engine out

Take the inlet manifold off, complete with carbs so they don't get damaged, this will also give you a bit more 'wriggle' room! Remove the bonnet, as you suggested and then, if there are no lifting eyes, make up an endless sling from a length of strong rope, or better still, beg or borrow a webbing s...
