    well today i decided to start cracking on and getting some jobs done that needed doing...

    first of was to change the ecu temp sensor as id had a weird rough running issue when first started up from cold...

    the start

    [​IMG]

    both sensors side by side for comparison

    [​IMG]

    fitted

    [​IMG]

    and all back together

    [​IMG]


    now was time to change my rear number plate lights as neither worked, decided to buy new lenses as i knew ould struggle to get them out in one piece cosa the screws

    how old uns looked

    [​IMG]

    fitting the new uns

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and to put 2 new tail light bulbs in as they was out....

    [​IMG]

    decided i better change the wheel over

    [​IMG]

    the reason why

    [​IMG]

    put this snazzy wheel on, the tyre has more cracks and splits then you find in a brothel :D

    [​IMG]

    then time to cure the fld/low vision on the mid, which i pinpointed to be the front level sensor...

    how it was

    [​IMG]

    and new one in place, but then had to put cable ties on to hold the clip as someone previous had broke it so would not stay on...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then on to the next job, the horns, but what a night mare these have/are beeen...

    airdam kit off to get acces to horns...

    [​IMG]

    fitted the new horns, didnt bloody work, checked all fuses and relays which where fine,even used multimeter and showed no power to them...

    so onto the steering wheel area,noticed the controls was not operating radio,so nipped to local scrappy and got new steering/horn controls...

    new uns fitted

    [​IMG]

    hey presto.....still not working...but after taking airbag off, noticed the steering wheel had been off before and the squib didnt look right to me...so went back to the scrappy and got the squib...

    got back and attempted to get the steering wheel off, but this bloody thing wouldnt come off :(

    the one in scrappy i had off in 2 mins no bother....so decided to just unplug wire on old squib and plug into new one, wire in airbag and steering controls/horn buttons, plugged old horns in and hey presto...THEY WORK, but sound really girly, plugged new horns in, thats more like it :rock:

    so put steering wheel back together with old squib still in place and going to be borrowing a steering wheel puller off v6mick:hi: on friday to change it over
