    Out of the blue my front windscreen wiper motor appears to have failed. Are these easy to change? Anyone know if it’s worth opening it up to try and mend? I’m ***uming not. Thanks very much.

    Hft saying tel connected but none are

    After a call my hft said that I was still in TEL mode, even when I switched my phone off. I've turned the car off - even looked it and walked away for ten mins but to no avail. Anyone had this problem? Can I reset the hft or will disconnecting the battery be the only solution?

    Does anyone else notice that when they have the heater on the amount of external smells that come in is pretty high. Is there supposed to be some sort of filter somewhere for these or is it standard? I do not notice external smells so much in any other car. Be interested in your views. Thanks

    Tyre change - from Nexen to Falken

    My Nexen 8000's on the front finally gave out at @23k miles - not bad really for an £85 tyre. The rear ones are still good for a few months so they are now on the front but I spent bit more this time round on some Falken ZE914 tyres and these are now on the rear. The Nexens, whilst superb...

    auto trans fluid change
