Dear Phil.
Thanks so very much Phil, I have to give great credit to Chris,s
family for keeping the car in such great condition and to everyone on
this forum for finding the car for me too :D :wink:
The parcel shelf Phil was just finished polising it, and it was behind
my SAAB, waiting to go back in, it is like new aswell with the blinds on.
The Hot/Cold heater control is stuck at the 4 o,clock position, and
only moves a small amount of it,s permitted travel. :!: I may be wrong,
but I thought that that control needs to be on cold, for the air-con to
work :?: Like there is a micro-switch on the heater control not allowing
the air-con to work. :?: I think it seems to have refridgerant in it. when
you press the valves. but air-con not working at the moment Phil.
I used to do all the air-con work at the last Vauxhall dealer I
worked at, so I know it all works, but using a big machine to do it.
It should be R 134 a if it hasn,t been superceded with something new
Phil. :wink:
Have you got air-con on one of your cars then Phil :?:
All The Best Phil ok :wink:
Take Care.

Depends on what you like I guess, i think the ZF 4 speeder suits the relaxed driving of the BX quite well.

Originally the car would have had R12. Now illegal of course. Some people used RS24...

Dear Way2Go.
Thank-you very very nuch indeed. :) Yes I do love polishing cars, I
find it really really rewarding to do and I really enjoy the results :wink:
to stand back and say yep I dun that :D I was brought up as a mechanic
to say to customers you should be able to see where I have been, by my
cleanliness, not by my mucky finger prints. :)
Many thanks again for all your kind support too.
All The Best.
Vince.
