    Forum Outage 23/24th August 2019

    Apologies for the outage, a scheduled cleanup task failed to run and caused a Db issue.

    All sorted now and I will keep a check on it moving forward.

    Check the relays and fuse on the bulkhead in the engine, if these fail then you can end up with the ignition system not being energized.

    Which parts are you missing Jack? I seem to remember you bought an aircon radiator off me many years ago?

    Always something new to test you.

    Rear bumper removal

    Hi guys, anyone taken their rear bumper off recently?

    The 2 bolts at the base of the boot lid are easy enough to see, but what is the easiest way to get to the other bolts?

    I think in your case you are going to have to try a brand/model of plug, see how the engine performs with them, and then adjust the temp of the plug to get the best performance.
