Not a fan of the mirrored/chrome wind deflectors so will be doing something with them, also want to have a go at making wing mirrors close from keypress.

View attachment 38453After crashing the last one and it being written off i’ve Finally rejoined the Elgrand team again. Took almost 6 months. First day drove it home and changed the nav I head unit for the English translation. Discovered the joys of black leather edition, found some random Japanese wireless headphones. Realised the wing mirrors don’t close onkey fob. but that I have got more parking sensors and 360 Birdseye view.
Nice one that, good to have you back 😀

When you think after you have snow foamed and citrus blasted the car before giving it a full wool wash there wouldn't be much contamination left well look at the vlay bar results 1 pic per panel on car20200802_085747.jpg20200802_085747.jpg20200802_090016.jpg20200802_093205.jpg20200802_100023.jpg20200802_101259.jpg20200802_103222.jpg20200802_101304.jpg20200802_104155.jpg20200802_105822.jpg

I fixed my auto power window coming back down 150mm with a handy guide from this forum ;)
Where is that please? My glass seems to drop a little slower than the mech, and I am sure is always open a fraction of a mil. Was curious if that sounded familiar to anyone, not desperate to fix it, but want to know what I would get myself into if I started...
Looked at some 2nd hand regulators but got dismayed at how much of a rip off they seem for the Elgrand. Supply and demand I guess..

I followed the instructions from the pictures. I put my window up all the way without using the auto button. Held the reset button and put window down all the way. hit the auto up and it was fixed. If the button isn't there check in the bottom of the door. I have a series 1. I think on later models they remove the reset button

I had a rattle behind the glove box so took it apart and fixed it was just a metal bracket thing that needed the screw tightening up.. but I also discovered the glove box has a soft opener that wasn't attached. So thats two little jobs done today :D

Checked the oil level, it needed a little top up - did so using my bandit cut up fairy liquid bottle funnel. Sprayed some 303 on anything that looked plastic or vinyl and in need of cleaning/protecting. Couldn’t be bothered to clean it so applied some Auto Finesse satin tyre dressing instead.
