Re: MK1 front brake differences

Great help,i did think it was the thickness but wasn,t sure 100%,so if I have 500 are these the same pads/discs used on MK2s?

Re: Rear screen seal replacement

Hello Alec
I did think you don,t use mastic etc as I fitted one years ago and don,t remember making a mess...
How do you push from the outside whilst pulling the string on the inside,that sound abit tricky?
Is it just a case of pushing it out from inside with my feet,carefully.

Rear screen seal replacement

Any tips to the best way to remove the rear screen and replace with a new seal,do I cut the old seal to get the screen out or just push from inside,do I just replace the seal and refit what mastic if any etc and is it a case of refitting using the old string/2 man jobbie.
