Re: Lambda sensor

The moment you try to remove that heatshield it will probably start disintegrating in front of your eyes, they all seem to do that. It was many years ago when I did it on my old 40 but I'm pretty sure I've managed to undo it by using standard o2 sensor socket, 22mm(I'm pretty sure I still have it so...

Re: My 1987 3.6 Sovereign

That rust on the side where bumper is attached seems standard, my old 40 had it on one side and that was 4 cars and 10 years ago or so. Angle grinder and a cutting disc will make a quick work of any rusted bolts and nuts securing that location plate under that plastic guide, then treat it, repaint a...

Re: Rear wheel bearing play - MOT

I know output shaft bearings should have below half a mm play and its certainly below that on mine, I've pulled on the driveshaft and play there is barely detectable. I've pushed/pulled on u joints and they seem ok, end caps don't move at all and usually if u joints are shot you can see it there so ...

Rear wheel bearing play - MOT

Would you say that max 1mm play at 12-6 hour is excessive wheel bearing play and an MOT fail or did I just came across a douchebag MOT tester again, of course there is no noise, roughness or whatnot in the bearing itself, just a bit of play :evil: Of course front wheel bearings on advisory list is a...

Re: XJ40 SITE

Steve, can you PM me, I'd be willing to help with this if John is ok with an extra person helping, its clear we currently don't have necessary resources to deal with the forum issues, I'd be willing to help with technical part of the forum, I work in IT and I don't want this forum to disappear and t...
