    my prediction is we'll be wondering what it was all about by the end of May.

    My lowering springs just raised the car

    Did you retighten any bushes in the control Arms while they were extended?

    You should brush your teeth.
  4. Thanks again Tim, works a treat.
  5. Thanks Tim, I'll be over today then.
  6. Dunno, but that one in your pic looks similar! I'm only in Northampton, is it possible to come and check?
  7. Tim, do you have a rubber boot for an e39 xenon headlight? This sort of thing.

    No electrical power (of any kind)

    Is there a fuse or relay panel near where the hose came off?
  9. In this price range, Mr2 Mk3 roadster is a winner. I've got two, cost about £3k for them both.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    For the first time in a long time, I did some work on my e39. New rear brake kit. Nice and cheap, quality seems OK and at least its nice to have a handbrake again. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F271170560350

    Newtis issue

    Works for me. The site's cert is incompatible with some very old browsers though. Some hints here: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/certificate-compatibility/
  12. Insert it into the fuel line near the tank. Possibly there's a seal in the pump that leaks a bit and let's fuel flow back to the tank when it's off. A good test might be to wait 5 seconds with the key in the "on" position before you turn it to "start".
  13. Maybe the new pump allows fuel to drain back towards the tank. A bit hacky. But maybe an online one way valve might help. KKmoon Inline One-way Non-return Check Valve Fuel Water Gas Air Vacuum Aluminum Valve 8mm https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07QPYSXPV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_5j0.Db6FZJXT4
