Has anyone done this, and can share some tips, they dont seem to be worth a great deal second hand, so in a moment of "what if madness", i thought, I wonder if i could use it to power some car speakers in my shed on12v.
Any help appreciated.
Thank you, bit disconcerting for me, as its been very reliable in the last 9 years i've owned it.
But if it causes no further issues, i'll get it repaired and then move on from the issue

A late to the party, but mine has just today started to do this, and the steering is definately not feeling as tight as it was. Did anyone ever feel a difference when theirs was displaying the light?
My Front offside started to do this.
But, I'm not sure how the pad and disk life were affecting it.
I'd completed 102,810 miles on the original disks and pads, so they were quite well worn, I did pull the calliper off, and did the usual copper grease tricks on the slides for the pads etc, but...
Just for comparison, ECP charged me £173 for 4 Brembo disks, and Textar pads all round, with one litre of DOT incl delivery.
No painted disk faces, (which I dont like) but bell hubs, edges and looked to be in the grooves all painted in what looks similar to Hammerite (but probably isnt)...
My DIS tends to tell me about 62 as an average, but it lies. 55mpg over a tank is my long term average. currently on 98,000.
Journeys to work etc, 10miles b roads, 10 miles A roads, then back to B roads through the town. about 35 minute journey time. Usually sit at 60mph on the A road, no...
Does the DIS work, Bluetooth and steering wheel controls all function as normal. Its a bit of a concern to me that it would just work out of the box...
I have a double din concert, S-line so lots of bits and bobs including BOSE presently..
How many of you will challenge this, achieved today.
Not doctored, not reset, as straight as a die.
One journey uninterrupted along the A12, from Brentwood to Colchester, starting at the Holiday inn, and ending at my house.
My first one I traded in after 23k, and a gearbox replacement, then similar issues. second one on 65k, and not much to report, goes like stink when I want it to, reports 80mpg, when I slipstream and drive like miss daisy.
I like it. Nice place to be, hard ride, but to my liking, comfy seats...
Hope its not like mine was, a gearbox replacement.
Mine would be noisey when hot, around 95 degrees and more. then it would quieten when the clutch was depressd, and quieten more when first gear was selected.
under warranty, a box plus installation was 4k.....
Not sure if it's me, the laptop or the new look of the forum..... But having tried to search for topics, then clicking on the link it just sends me back to the homepages......
Not helpful, so if you could assist an old fart, I would be gratefull.
Seems I have just developed an odd noise when rotating the steering wheel, it sounds like a spring slipping in the seat on the front suspension, I've had a look underneath, and rotated the wheels, tried to pull on them to see if anything is loose, but nothing out of the ordinary. It feels ok...
