Title: 3.0 V6 RXE - back on the road after 18 mths
Post by: smouty on November 10, 2012, 02:32:38 pm
Hi,
Does anyone have a guide for refitting the aerial?
It was parked under a tree and a branch has pulled it right out screw thread and all
:o

Also are the hinges for the rear opening window readily available?

Thanks

Anthony


I refitted the aerial after removing the overhead console.  ;D

Yes, but you will only get from a dealer or scrap yard!. Nice to hear you got it going & mot'd.

A relative in France has ordered me a pair of hinges from a dealer at 60 each  :o
They also had a wheel centre which I needed for 30.

I used my Espace for the first time in 18 months at the weekend and had a problem I can't work out.
The car would drive fine until 40 MPH when there was a sort of stiction sound coming from the front nearside.
Slowing down and the problem stopped. I drove to my destination at less than 40 MPH and all was OK having stopped to check for anything obvious.
On the return journey the noise returned but would not go even at slower speeds but after approx. 30 seconds stopped and has not returned during subsequent journeys.

Braking or steering were not affected and didn't have an effect when the noise was apparent  ??? ???

Any ideas?
