Re: Harry's blue Mazda 2!

The VAG obsession with fancy bolts is to do with speed of operation in production, and trying to prevent any attempts at DIY by owners.

Re: Problems Logging in

In the 1990's I was working for Ford* and was a key member of the Internet Engineering Task Force, along with players such as cisco systems, in the creation and development of DNS (Dynamic Name Service) and DHCP, among other elements that make the Internet what it is today. One of our concerns we ha...

Re: Problems Logging in

So obviously more widespread and all related to DNS resolution, is this something for the mods to look into? It can't right that there are so many outages. There's nothing that the moderators can do regarding this. Potentially it might be something that the Admin Team could discuss with our hosting...

Re: Problems Logging in

On what device having the issue?

There's some nasty malware around that redirects DNS requests, among other things.

Re: Inlet plastic elbows

They look very similar to the ones I retrieved out of another members manifold, not identical but not that different. The tabs on the originals stop this happening http://essexrotarystore.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/MazdaRX8IntakeElbowAirHoseJoint-1.jpg http://essexrotarystore.com/product/mazda-r...

Do they have the location tabs?

The ones I found didn't and got sucked into the intake manifold :shock:

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

The aerial is in the rear screen.
There is a noise filter under the parcel shelf that can fail.

The oem head unit has a hidden diagnostics mode that can identify issues

Re: Help wanted

Follow the instructions here and that should determine if the issue is mechanical (UJ, rack, balljoints etc) or electrical (connections, rack, torque sensor or ECU)

Re: Refurbishing brake calipers

Use a sharp angled pick and ensure that the groove that the square section seal fits into is perfectly clean, especially in the corners. It only takes a small amount of muck/corrosion to pack the groove and the seal sits too proud. Note that the seal is designed to grip the piston when in use, as it...

Indeed.

I fitted my Yatour BT 12 years ago, when it was the best option on the market, but the world has moved on.

Re: Yatour Bluetooth Compatibility

Yes and No.

Yes we've tried and No it doesn't work.

The incompatible firmware doesn't recognise an Aux input and there's no way to reflash, short of swapping chips.

Replacing with a compatible unit is far simpler.

Re: Viperous's 40th in Met Grey

The clutch pedal pivot can get stiff and crunchy, especially if you have long legs and your left knee tends to hang out, so your foot action on the pedal isn't exactly straight down, as this creates a side thrust. My pedal box has to be stripped and re-greased every few years, otherwise it sounds li...
