What doesn’t work/needs doing

Sun roof tilts sometimes but doesn’t slide back.

One switch back light illumination out and I have mislaid my spares

Suspension bushes need renewing not detectable on MOT thus far but noisy on road

Rear shock absorbers also probably need changing (I have a new pair available)

Bonnet lacquer worn through

Oil pressure gauge only records when accelerating. Suspect broken wire in loom.

This fault came to light driving from Peterborough to the Isle of Mull and back in three days in 2015.

I have changed the oil pressure sender sensor on the engine and it made no difference.

On the X300 the oil pressure gauge does not actually read pressure. The gauge is on the same circuit as the low oil pressure warning light so when gauge goes to zero light comes on too.

NSR back door doesn’t unlock/lock electrically. Spare unit in stock.

Boot release button doesn’t work (Micro switch in stock) It does unlock with key & switch on dash.
