  • My alternator belt was squawking. Not all the time but enough to be annoying.
    I tightened it up a bit more and it stopped but I was worried this was too tight and might damage my alternator pulley.
    So, swapped over to a new gates belt and it’s totally silent. The old (new) belt was a Contitech one but obviously not up to the job.

    • Once they've slipped a few times the rubber can get polished, and become misshapen, so they no longer fit the vee properly -new belt is the answer, as you've found

      • I’ve never been happy with my headliner job. I had a few wrinkles and after my trips this year when the car sat in the sun once or twice, it had started to sag in places. My door cards had also decided it was time to start peeling off and deposit yellow goo everywhere!
        So, not wanting to mess about this time, I’m taking everything to a professional trimmer for black alcantara.
        The headliner came off really easily this time. Less than two hours and that was taking my time so I didn’t damage anything.






        My passenger front door card is missing a few of the hooks. Has anyone got a broken or scrap door card spare?
        I could cut the hooks off and re bond.

        • And I've found my old Nothelle wheels. Hopefully some news on that front soon. They might come with a little bonus as well

          • Would you mind if we saw what you thought were bad wrinkles?

            No schadenfreude of course

            • I think I posted pics previously but will have a look
              Trimmer said I hadn't done a bad job. He had seen much worse.

                Had a look and don't seem to have the pics anymore. Some of the pics have also disappeared from the thread

                I have been chatting to another member and apparently the £400 for recovering my 4 door cards in alcantara, roof liner and A pillar trims in black fabric is very reasonable. If the guy does a good job, I am happy to pass his details on to anyone who wants them. 4 door cards £200 and roof liner £200.
