  1. Here is the article in full. Interesting reading... (edit - added quotation designation - Loren)
  2. Just spent the whole weekend working on the roof, AND IT STILL DOESN'T WORK!!!!! I've followed the advice found on here and the procedure in the workshop manual but after spending TEN HOURS fiddling and scratching my head, my roof is now stuck in the up position. I bought both the pieces that were broken from my OPC, the push bar spring and the main bow push bar. Following the advice on another thread I disconnected the other (right) main bow push bar, synced both transmissions with a drill, snapped on the new push bar spring and lowered the clamshell to check operation. As the clamshell
  3. The roof on my 98 2.5 has just broken. I was putting the roof up and there was this loud clunking noise. I looked in the rear view mirror to see the clamshell judder and twist. I stopped to have a look and found an arm in the mechanism had broken at one end. It was just lying in the base of the hood recess. I've since found out this arm is called the push bar spring. It broke by the hole where it fixes to the hinge lever. On further investigation, I also found the plastic end of main bow push bar is also broken. I've no idea if that was broken already or if it happened at the same time. I
  4. Thanks fellas, Got the light to do it again at the weekend. It doesn't flash but stays lit. After restarting it goes out. I think Loren could be right and it's just a bad sender. Does anyone know how difficult the sender is to change? Can I do it myself? Ped
  5. I'm in the UK but... The Traffic Pro, Silverstone changer and installation cost me £700 The Bose Base box and Pioneer door speakers I had fitted a few weeks later. That cost me another £350. I admit, for that kind of cash you could buy a better sounding system. But I like the standard look. Also, as none of the louts round my way know what a Becker is, it's less likely to get pinched. Ped
  6. Thanks loren, Not sure if it's doing any of those things though. I don't think it flashes at all, just stays lit. The engine is stone cold. I'll double check the next time it happens. Thanks Ped
  7. Hi, Sometimes the tiny red warning light on my temperature gauge doesn't go out after the engine starts. If I turn the engine off and restart, it goes out. All the other lights go out fine. The car is cold. Anyone know why? Should I worry? Is it easy to fix? Is it a sign of impending doom? The car is a 98' 2.5 Thanks Ped
  8. Fred, I had the Bose base box fitted in my 98' 2.5 a couple of months ago. My car had the sound upgrade package from new, so it already had the amp installed on the bulk head and the door speakers. The amp looks the same as the one in your pics, is it made by Nokia? I also fitted a new head unit; the Becker traffic pro. The shop who did the install said that when they wired the system up it sounded pretty crappy so they played around with different combinations to get the best sound. They settled on: The front amp runs the base box only The amp in the head unit runs the door speakers
