  3. Can this be done? Series 3 380 steering wheel into third gen Magna

    Can a Series III 380 steering wheel with audio controls be fitted to third gen Magna's? I'd imagine the short answer is "yes" but there'd be a fair amount of work involved (looms and clock springs). Possibly pretty expensive also. Did any third gen Magna's have a steering wheel controls...

    Hi all, As per the title, particularly when idling in neutral with aircon on, the idle hunts from 1200-1800rpm. A quick jab of full throttle brings it back to 800rpm where it will stay, sometimes for the rest of the drive, sometimes only until it idles again. Putting it in drive seems to...

  15. Interesting noise

    The 2004 starts quietly. I have replaced the lifters and belt. The 2003 has not had lifters done and is due for belt, but does not make any ticking noise ever, more like a thin metal plate not screwed down properly and vibrating for the first 30 seconds after starting from cold. Belt tensioner?
