AFAIK new ones of these fir tree plugs are still around - would be better as the plastic will be more flexible.

It's not actually the fir trees I meant, There's a couple of little screw threads welded onto each side of the boot sidewalls that little (inch diameter, at a guess) round dome shaped black plastic pieces screw onto to hold the sidewalls in place.
Mine are loose as all but one is missing and the one i have has stripped its thread so no longer holds in place anyway so is a bit annoying, Could make something but just always have something else to do.



Is there a front passenger mudguard available?

Hi Djoptixs

How would £25/£30 for the whole mech minus the motor sound (just need the drivers door one) - can collect one weekend if preferred as it also gives me a reason to pop in on my sister who lives in Bristol anyway!

Let me know

Regards
Andrew

Hi all, and sorry for the lack of updating, been a bit busy. The car is being collected tomorrow so last chance if you need anything.

An attempt to answer all the questions follows...

I know the plugs you mean - I'll have a look. I will also have a look for the mushroom things. No mud flaps I'm afraid.

I will also have a look for those plastic things, I know what you mean, but I did strip the boot quite a while ago so they might have gone AWOL.

Yes I did get the PM, sorry for the lack of response! I'll see if I can get at that.

They are grey herringbone trim, and they're in good nick I would say.

Yes, but they were steels and the tyres are scrap.

I think it's fair to say we all urgently need foglights ;) Unfortunately, they're buggered, and the surrounds are yellowed.

£25 sounds more than fair - I will extract the mech if I can.

I've since been and gone past Bristol so if you can stick the little rubber plug things in the post that'd be great, otherwise don't worry as I won't be passing again till after xmas and it's quite a way just for those!

No problem, just let me know if you manage to get a chance to remove the heater panel. could you keep me the metal spring clips that hold the control cable to the panel as well please?

Many thanks, Jim

Hope these are correct...

One window mech:

Variety of bungs, one a bit damaged (not by me) - any good?

Four mushrooms:

Heater CP:

Wish I'd read your post earlier. One of them (right hand one in second pic) fell down the back of the dash. Is this the one that you need? If so, I'll have another look in the morning...

One of the clips would be enough, I'm only missing the one for the temperature control side as that's what's broken on my car. I asked for both just incase I did what you did and dropped it down the dash :lol:

Cheers, Jim

I don't mind if the surrounds are yellowed as I'm still gonna respray them. As long as they are not cracked or broken it's fine.
