Re: Boot interior light stopped working

that's only 3mm difference, as long as the tabs are touching the bulb it will be ok for testing even if it is a bit loose.

but it's most likely the bulb has gone bad. the ebay leds don't last as long as they claim unfortunately.

Re: Boot interior light stopped working

Hey is the bulb the same as the inside dome light? Maybe swap them over to test it.

If you're in Melbourne there's heaps of wreckers with CJ lancers that will sell you that part for $5 - $10

Re: Steering Wheel Control Install

If it's just the volume buttons you don't need a new steering wheel, you can just buy the switches. Just remove your blanking piece first and check that the plug is there.

Check behind the steering wheel and you will see a hole where the screw goes.

Re: tow bar compatibility

I've managed to bolt up the tow bar from a hatch into a sedan, all the bolt holes lined up perfectly! does need a bit of the bumper cut out though for the tow bar tongue.

so I guess that answers the question!

you'd want the trailer as balanced as possible, if there's too much weight on the ball then it will cause the front of the car to lift and you will lose braking and steering.

Re: CH Wagon Trailer?

the problem you will find is the Lancer has a maximum tow ball weight of 100kg, which is not very much! with a normal trailer most of the weight is balanced on the axle, that's why you can grab them and pull them around. there will be a lot of weight on the front overhang of the Lancer wagon!

Re: Replace Instrument Cluster

unfortunately no, I believe you can only set it if it's under a certain number of kms, or blank. It won't allow you to change the VIN either, though it may be because it's a used cluster. or it could be because mine is an early (2008) CJ, whereas the cluster is out of a 2012 model. I know Fords only...

Re: Replace Instrument Cluster

I really don't think a dealer would notice, it only shows up when you do meter diagnostics and they probably won't go there unless there is a problem with the cluster.

It just bugs me that there is an error logged.

Re: Replace Instrument Cluster

after a few months of assuming the dash cluster was functioning normally I plugged in a MUT III to adjust the service reminder and guess what, it came up with an active DTC odometer error! I couldn't clear it so it looks like I'll have to unsolder the chip again and check out what's going on. I did ...
