Re: Washers keep failing to work.

Hi, I too had no water at the jets, and water going somewhere. My Indy removed the sound proofing,the water was coming out of what appear to be non return valves attached to the jets, he removed these and has ordered new ones.In the meantime they work but it takes a little while for the water to come.

Re: Kickdown not working

Took the car for a test drive and all is well it has got the oomph back, but never floored it to 6000 revs. I can only presume there is a protective overheating switch in the auto box, because the coolant temp gauge was showing dead centre.

Re: Is it safe to plug a battery conditioner in cigar socket

Thanks for your reply,
I too have a ctek and used it on my mgb for 6years and no problems. But the z3 is an auto and has loads of sensitive electrics compared to the mgb,made me feel worried about damaging something.

Re: Exhaust rasp has gone after air inlet changed.2.2i

My Indy fitted a new boot- part number 13541705209 but is not the same as the original. Yet the dealers got the part number from the chassi and the registration.Now that he has got the old boot he will take it to the dealers to get a exact match.
