    FMIC fitted :)

    Yes mate all that pipework stayed the same when I switched FMIC cores as they both had 63mm outlets. the only thing I had to do was trim the pipes connecting to the new wellycooler down as of course its much wider than the old small cooler.

    Radio interference when using heated rear screen.

    Best bet to find the broken parts is first to get the rear screen fogged up (use your breath) and see which lines don't work. Then get a torch and put it on the inside of the glass as you look in from outside. Move along the line and see if you can find an broken sections or as I found a section...

    Frustrating Airbag Light

    Hope you sorted this but if not I had a similar issue when I had a small water leak as the water made the rear seatbelt tensioner damp and this caused the same code you had which put the airbag light on.

    Tried Everything but the fault won't go.......... Help Please

    SAI = secondary air intake system. Mine doesn't have one as its a BAM engine so not sure if yours has one or not.
