Re: srs restraint module fault and front abs sensor signal.

Thanks warpc0il big pete & paul.

The faults may be unconnected, the codes came up when some work was being done to it recently, dont know what code was shown. I'll check the connection in the glovebox area. any further thoughts welcomed.

cheers

srs restraint module fault and front abs sensor signal.

hi, It seems that my srs restraint module( Air bag ) is showing a fault and that there is a code indicating that the ABS front sensors are not providing signal. Has anyone seen or had this fault occur? Is it possible that the srs restraint module was involved in work associated with a recall on air ...

Re: rusty sills

hi Roosterrory, Thanks for your post. My RX8 has 'bubbling' sills. The corrosion is visible beneath the car and inboard so far. I have a quote to cut out and weld new metal in place once the rusting metal has been removed. When you refer to an inner sill are you describing a sill enclosed by the out...

Re: rusty sills

hi in the absence of a response regarding the ebay sill panels ( if its the same as I've seen the supplier is in Poland and advises that the panels are sourced from Mazda), here are my thoughts. RX8 sills will rust, and some people will need or choose to repair /replace them. The outer sills on my R...

My 2003 RX8 is nearing 100,000 miles as original ( almost).I thought therefore to register having been a former member many years back. The car is still my favourite drive, and i hope to keep it that way for a while yet. The RX8 may become less familiar on our roads but the Club will play a big part...

Whats particularly great about the RX8 is the interest it commands across the spectrum.From casual complimentary comments from passers by, to dedicated owners who value the qualities of this distinctive car.

Re: 300 Mile Club

Another thing that is almost unique about the RX8 is the relatively small differences in fuel consumption experienced in differing journeys/ driving conditions. For example a mix of short town drives and motorways normally results in 20 mpg. Long motorway journeys get to say 24-25 mph. If you can do...
