Sadly they do degrade over time. I fitted a new set of FLi speakers in my E50 and they were sound after that. Did not need to remove all the gubbins though like you have done:cold_sweat::cold_sweat::cold_sweat::cold_sweat:

I can get a bit carried away when I get the tools out πŸ˜‰. Soft close on side and rear doors not working so thought I'd look see if any connections had come adrift whilst I was getting the speakers out. Thought there was a hidden fuse box in the back WRONG. Must be E51 only. Still no soft close. What fun these Elgrand are.

Polished mine all day from 9am to 4pm to within an inch of its life. Knackered I am. Used autoglym ultra deep shine ( for dark colours first ) then another coat of autoglym canuba wax with a buff from my electric polisher. Whole van came up lovely then Joanne says " shall we go out for a drive in it " with a wink in her eye!!!!!:rolleyes::eek::p:D:heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes: Now she is all dusty from going down some lane.:sob: which had some simpleh loveleh straight lines although the dust did give a slight bit of blindin. Watt:eek:

Also fitted my new set of ebay Β£7.99 Nismo wheel centres. They are great quality guys and a snip at Β£7.99 for a set of 4. Nice tight fit too they are so no chance of falling out like one of my others did last weekend. Ive just bought a second set as they are that good.

ebay item number is - 183212371356 and they are a 60mm fitment. I used my rubber mallet gently to manipulate them in fully.

If I knew how to put up the link I would guys so sorry in advance but at least ive put the item number up.

Two months from first request.. Β£75 as I have screen cover on my insurance.. your be looking at Β£1,200 if you do it yourself .. it worked out cheaper to upgrade my insurance
Hi Peter. do you still have all the packaging or paperwork with all the correct info on it should any of us ever need one and we can quote it to our windscreen cover folk. Ive recently had a chip repaired but it looks today as it might be on the go again due to all this heat which I don't really want to change as its the original screen from new.

If not, I think @MrRob_in put some codes and info on here somewhere from when he got his screen changed
