    Weird Left Turning

    I have a weird one on my car, if I turn right (so say I put an input of 20degs) it drives as it did previously, but if I do the same left, it feels like it is over-assisting / like it's turning way more! The faster you are driving the worse it is, like it throws you left! It was scary the first...

    Alternator Removal

    My car threw up "LOW BATTERY" on the way to supermarket, then when I headed back it died a few roads away, luckily I had jump leads and got some power to nurse it home. The battery is original from factory, so I tried charging it with my CTEK, it managed to recondition it, but I thought for £50...

    (Fixed) Misfire / Splutter / Strangled

    My 197 is playing up at specific conditions. * Pulling away, I need to add a lot more revs to pull away, or it feels like fuel cut / splutter / misfire, then when it passes that rev range it is fine again * If let's say you are in third gear and revs drop down to 1.8k and you put more then 30%...

    Injector O-Ring Size?

    Hey everyone, Does anyone know the Injector O-Ring sizes? I am getting some ticking type noises from that area, so I want to investigate this weekend, but I want to plan ahead just in case it happens to be them (also might as well replace them while there if it is them). Thanks in advance.

    Wishbone Balljoint?

    Can you get the ball joint that is in the wishbone separately? (Not the swivel joint, or the balljoint on the hub, that actual wishbone)? As my passenger one has excessive play and it has indents on the balljoint like you could remove it? Thanks in advance.

    I just parked up at work, seen a silver 200 (it was a quick glance, so either Mercury or Nimbus..). It had Recaro seats (again quick glance, couldn't see yellow dots, so out of a 197?) it had red front calipers (couldn't see the rear ones), so maybe Cup packed?
