    Trying to refit headlights 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Hey everyone... Long time no lurk... Hoping someone can help us with something that's probably very easy. We've removed Fanny's headlights to fit some swanky new LED bulbs in and now we can't get them back in. They are the sealed unit type that just have one screw holding them in. There must...

    Window water woes [emoji22] [emoji97]

    Steps (Tragedy, when the feelings gone and you can't go on)

    Haha bet you've got that in your head now We've been away this weekend and I've noticed my knees creaking as I get out of the van. It's quite high and not lowered at all.

    Anyone had a rewire from Iain Auto Electrician and can answer a query?

    We had a rewire done some time last year and have been trying to get hold of Iain to give us a fuse diagram. He does great work when he's there but is akin to the scarlet pimpernel afterwards! Can anyone help identify any fuses and / or bits pointed to by my lovely hand model. The first one...
