  1. Hi dave Good info you got there but its sorted now last monday thank god. Sorry i was meant to update here but ive been work past 3 days so got chance now. Cant believe after all that messing around and money spent, i took it to my uncle (auto electrician) once again as he wanted another look at it. It turned out to be just a fuse in the relay behind the drivers side coin pocket. This sorted out both the issues of heater blower not working and overheating at idle, this was due to fan not kicking in at idle, everythings working now. To answer your question, yes i
  2. I can confirm the zs sideskirts will fit.. I bought some recently just need sprayed before i fit them. But like you said above go for the deeper and curved ones, the others are just standard ones colour coded. Also, not 100% sure on this but i think there might be a slight variation on mk2 facelift zs models from 2005. Just get some off a mk1 2001-2004 to be safe unless you can go view mk2 ones and pull your standard ones off to compare the fitting clips/holes behind them. Hth
  3. Just to update I havent done much about this due to work but driving the car daily to work everything seems normal and no symptoms of overheating and im not losing any coolant but i havent checked again what it will do if i let it idle for long enough not that i want to anyway i hate seeing that... As for the heater, i fitted the new ceramic mg rover resistor today and it seems my uncle was right......still no heaters damn it!
  4. Hi As above my uncle checked the motor and said its fine.. Ive done some reading and wish i did come across the bleeding info beforehand, will try this front end up soon. I have a question im wondering about, like i said in my first post that i serviced the car earlier this year with fresh coolant and all was good i had the fan kick in in half hour twice and must have expelled the air otherwise i would have had this issue back then aswell What I want to know is about this air lock thing, does this only happen when bleeding the car after coolant change or can air lock in the
  5. Thought id give an update here. Not as simple as i was hoping with these issues, really frustrating as i have work now for next 3 days so cant do much with taking it to the garage. Just hoping carry on driving doesnt do more damage. With the heater issue, i ordered the new resistor and should have it by weds. However, my uncle who is auto electrician has checked few things like the fuse and heater motor and even says my resistor is still good also which im baffled by. He said he needs to investigate further into the relay as the problem lies somewhere along the line.
  6. Hi Thank you so much kink.... Oil and water has always been fine and still is, i check them regularly. I will double check today if fan still comes on, i gave it a major service earlier this year inc new coolant and everything was fine although i didnt change the thermostat. The fuse in the engine looks fine visually but i didnt have tester to check it. I have pulled out the heater resister and the coils on one side was absolutely toasted so for now i blame that and have ordered a new ceramic one like i did previously (mg rover one). Will update how it goes...
  7. I dont know if these 2 are related but today went out and heater didnt even come on at any speeds so i thought yeh heater resister it must be....ive replaced one in previous civic and its easy i know, although that was cos it didnt work on speeds 1 & 2 more commonly but this time its gone completely. Whats more worrying to me now is and im hoping its nothing major, is that later that day i went in the car wash and noticed the temp needle very slowly creeps up past the normal half way mark.... at first i really thought my eyes are playing with me but later i tried again by letting it i
  8. Hi Would appreciate any help as this question is a bit specific i couldnt find anything in search so apologies... To anyone who has bought (or can shed any light into this) foglights for their NON foglight mb, did u get the wiring from the seller to connect them up or can a auto electrician sort this out without the original wiring? Im asking since im after some fogs but one seller doesnt want to bother with pulling the wiring out so im wondering what to do about it. I actually want the fogs for the brackets only so i can search for some better condition accord ctdi ones as
  9. Blueprint parts are very good Same as genuine if not better. Use part number ADH22223 on ebay or auto shop i used blueprint oil air and fuel filters on mine. Good parts at affordable prices
  10. Hi I did this stuff to my mb2 a year ago. Front and rear brakes overhaul with new disc shields front and rear. All parts were mg zs fitment. I used rimmerbros for disc shields all around. Rear part numbers. SMD000080 SMD000090 just checked still showing in stock around 25 each. Hope this helps

    D16 swap

    I popped in today for a small chat and they booked me in for tuesday to look at the handbrake issue ive got plus i requested an inspection on any potential rust underneath. They took a deposit off me, first time ive come across that lol not saying its wrong i just didnt expect that. I guess its to deter people from booking in then not turning up is that right? Anyway the chat about the D16 swap confused me even more, rich certainly knows what he's talking about....but where LF honda guy quoted me 1500 for a D16 turbo conversion, dynodaze reckon the same price for a standard D16
