Good luck with the covered cup holder, it's a bit of a pain but worth it.


Thanks

So many bits to remove to change a simple cup holder

Yup, it's an awkward little bugger but satisfying when it's all back together, scratch free. Good work mate :clap:

Sorry mate, mine is a manual. Is it the plastic surround that's loose or the chrome bit? The plastic part has a clip, you may want to pop it out again to make sure it hasn't broken.

Took it into work and serviced it and found the nearside front shockers leaking,,, not overly impressed for a 3.5 year old car with 25k on the clock

Had the timing chain tensioner, chain, guides etc replaced for peace of mind. Not a cheap job but cheaper than an engine rebuild.

Looking for advice and ideas.
Thinking of lowering, remapping and doing other bits to the car over time.

Sachs dual mass flywheel (eight crank bolt holes)
- 30% uprated pressure plate (not heavy under-foot)
- carbon Kevlar lined clutch driven plate (nice and smooth but precise engagement)
- a concentric slave cylinder release bearing
- a set of flywheel retaining bolts
- a set of clutch bolts

Ready for Saturday's re-map.

Stage 1 done. Thanks to Alex at AGChiptuning for that and for letting me know that I have a healthy engine. Would highly recommend him for your tuning needs.

Please disregard the above. I had the car dyno'd and i got 235bhp as the fuel is running rich. I now have to have the car put back to stock to have the fuelling adjusted. Hopefully its not the Lambda sensor. If they can adjust the fuelling and reinstate the remap and it hits 250 i'll be happy but, it has still cost me for a dyno and will cost me for the adjustments. All in all, an expensive remap. You live and learn.
In a nutshell don't get your car mapped by AGChiptuning.
