Re: Door panel sealant strip size?

Can you not just measure along the bottom of the inner door panel, this should give you a guide with a little bit to spare.

Re: Air con problems?

It's less than a minute job to cut the belt and forget about air conditioning. Nothing can be more simple, but you keep asking about it already month. ONE MONTH AND YOU STILL CAN'T FIND ONE MINUTE TO CUT BLOODY BELT? YOU CAN'T BE THAT BUSY. TYPING IN FORUM TAKES LONGER TIME. x_x :hyst and breathe.....

The description of the lack of pull could be helped with cleaning the turbo with Mr.Muscle. there's a few good threads on here about it. Basically over time the turbo vanes get sooted up and can stick, 'sticky vanes' so the Mr.Muscle cleans them up nicely. Guy Sent from my brain Telepathetically...

Some time ago I fitted eicher (or what ever the name was) discs and pads, and car was still stopping pretty good. They were ch...

I conclude the OE side of Pagid has been bought out by ECP , cheaped out and an inferior product exists . Are ECP not just the shop front/distributor for spares and parts, they have nothing to do with Pagid the manufacturer, or any parts manufacturing that I know of. Pagid are owned by TMD Friction...
