Re: OUCH!!! one bent e series ride...

sorry about the heading but its 3am and ouch is what my head was feeling n bent meaning one weird mechanical car,had my problem with idle etc all i did was disconnected the battery waited 3 minutes hooked it back up and shes going again,no over revving, no pre-igniting, ZIP!
auto electrician told me what to do and he saved me $50 to put it onto a computer tester machine then 55 p/h after that to find out why it was playing up,all up its cost me nothing now,except 10 bucks..

Re: My Ride n now its fixed! :P

seems the car is needing a quick battery disconnection again,put a set of eb rear lights in n thats where my problems started,ea lights have 3 bolts eb has 4 so only 2 bolts are on n i have to make a bracket for the other 2 cause as i found out the electrician must of broke one of each side cause its missing one on each side now*not happy jan*
and then the rear garnish went to connect the reverse lights but that part has been gutted as the garnish wouldnt fit as it needs a hole in your boot to put to bulb assembly through,so i had to find another garnish with all that in mind the electrician qouted me a price n boosted it by 40% n i wasnt impressed at all,then to find they broke the bolts in the rear lights *grrrr* i feel ripped off now..

anyways eb rear lights n garnish look nicer then EA for sure this weekend i have to cut out holes for the reverse lights refit the lights with a bracket,and i thought fitting the aftermarket rear boot spoiler was bad enough to fit *line it up right etc* the lights etc are a nightmare,hopefully have it sorted by the weekend *crosses fingers*
cheers post pics later today..
