Re: Help with rear end noise

I recently drove another 2000 with a shot diff and it was a completely different noise, a...

Re: Anti roll bar

Did the power steering conversion include changing the steering arms (the link between the hub and the track rod end) The correct arms for PAS have a letter P embossed on the casting and the angle of the arm is slightly different.

Re: Non starter.

As you say, possible earth (or +ve supply) fault. Try putting a jump lead between the battery -ve terminal and a good clean earthing point on the engine block. If no luck there, try a jump lead from the battery +ve to the starter motor terminal where the thick cable is connected. You also mentioned ...

Re: Alternator problems

Had this same issue last week. I've a digital voltmeter that goes in the 12v plug and it has been reading up to 18.8v! Even with all electrics on (halogens, blower, rear demister etc) it held at 16.4v. Got a new regulator and so far so good. Cautionary tale on this one. A few years ago my digital m...
