    That wiring is a mess in the boot, I know of one repair to the loom but not two. And I think I used insulating tape not duct tape! Good that you found the issue.

    You will find a crimp connector or two around the Grom unit in the front too, it was a temporary fit that you will no doubt want to redo in time.

    Martyn I still have the headlamp wiper arm here, I knew you'd bring it up and only fair, I will happily send it back up North (minus the cap that is on Harvey's car!)

    Looking forward to seeing further progress!
    Dont be daft Al I was only making harvey aware the his sonice is a bit of a tart
    Thanks

    Tonight when I got home, I had a letter from DVLA ,paperwork for new number plate to go on the car.
    With any luck I should get them made up tomorrow.

    I will fit them and see if her indoors notice them.

    Just make sure you get the MOT and tax disc back as well. I swapped the plate from the wifes MX5 to her C70, got the paperwork back but the MOT and tax never showed, for either car Had a right game getting replacements!! Hopefully all OK for you though..............

    The car had its codes read saturday morning and it was a long list of faults,fortunately most were to do with the rear door locking,rear lights from the harness fault so not too bad.

    Had them reset but one came back straight away.

    The one fault is with the on-call phone is the reserve battery is at 4% out of 100% so going to get one on order as i can't get the on-call set up for my details.

    The PHM-0030 one was persistent through my ownership. It's the on-call back-up battery. Completely useless, so it was the one fault code I lived with!!!

    I read the codes before I sold you the car and the only ones there were the PHM one, and the REM ones relating to the locking / loom.

    It had a CCM fault back in June but that was the Air Quality Sensor.

    Nice plates, btw!
