Central locking is now working, woo hoo. Just a quick question, how do you close your door, do you slam it or close it then press it shut. My drivers door closes then i lean against it to shut it. The passenger door will not do this and needs to be slammed which I don't like doing. I have just fitted new door seal so I am going to adjust when seal beds in a bit.

Hi All.
If the new seals were purchased from Woolies then the profile is slightly bigger, I had the same problem with mine, the correct one can be purchased from Seals direct as they used to supply the Rickman factory, they are on the same industrial estate as Rickman were. same goes for windscreen rubbers. their number is 01425617722. if you measure the profile of the round tube part of the old seal is should be around 15mm dia.

Regards Alan.

Maiden voyage just completed, had to get petrol. Made it home so no complaints.

Went out for a bit of a run today to get the car up to full working temp. While on the drive a photographer dropped to his knees at the side of the road and took our picture, the camera he had looked professional with a big lens. So we might be famous, it amused me and my daughter quite a bit.

Turns out it is a website that takes your picture at the side of the road, then puts the picture on their website. You can then choose which format you want the picture in, for a cost.
