    Top display clock changing on its own!

    Since the GPS signal changes I have had to change my Tourer top display clock by disconnecting the battery at 1pm. Randomly today the clock suddenly advanced by one hour while we were driving and not touching anything!! Anybody else seen this??

    Fixed - Clock and AirCon Top Display

    Unfortunately not. This is nothing to do with the car and is down to changes in the GPS signal that occured earlier this year or last year. Afraid there is no fix for it other than disconnecting the battery as you have said.

    Have I screwed the Sat Nav?

    Found a v2.11 Sat Nav DVD while doing a clearout. Is not an original but thought it might be worth a try and an improvement on the v2.3 I've currently got. Famous last words! Put it in and screen went black and eventually came up with a message saying do not turn off the engine and very slowly...

    2.2i-ctdi timing chain

    Whatever kit you go for make sure you also replace the oil pump drive gear, which is not in the kit, otherwise you could be placing a new chain on a worn gear and it's not a good combination! Don't ask me how I know!

    Why do Tourer rear pads never fit out of the box?

    I think the *proper" way to do this is to open the bleed valve and push the fluid out as the piston is pushed back but I've never done this.

    Why do Tourer rear pads never fit out of the box?

    Fitted a new set of rear pads to the Tourer not long before the lockdown but barely driven it since until last weekend when I did a 200 mile trip. When I got home I noticed the offside rear wheel was very hot and indicative of the brakes binding. Had a look yesterday and pads were free (already...

    Rear Brake Problem

    As above I've always had to grind some off the ends of the pads or they just cannot move in the caliper. I tried leaving them alone the last time I fitted new ones and the rear brakes ran hot as the pads just would not release. In terms of the pattern above then I would say there is plenty of...

    Resetting the clock

    Don’t forget all those with sat nav who can no longer reset the top clock then if you disconnect and re connect your battery at 1pm then it will be right!
