Re: Boot Lid not fitting

Re: Boot Lid not fitting

What year is the car? There have been a few changes over the years, but mainly cosmetic or with the stay. The usual reason for a poor fit is poor alignment of panels during a previous restoration. There should be a lip right round the opening on the body. Is yours present? They sometimes rust away,...

Boot Lid not fitting

Hi. I just can't get the boot lid to fit properly. It leaks badly in the rain. It sits very high and only shuts with the catch ajusted fully forward. It has been replaced in its time but there does not seem to be any adjustment. The rubber I got from ESM seems to make it worse. Were there differant ...

Re: Interior courtesy light

Thanks for all your advice. I have removed the light and fitted an LED. The wiring seems OK so maybe just needs a bit of a clean. However the cover is broken and I would like to replace it. So this brings us back to does a Classic Mini one fit.

Morris Minor Owners Club Technical Manual Second Edition

I joined the club over 30 years ago when I owned a 1963 Traveler. There was no internet then and I brought through the club a “Morris Minor Owners Club Technical Manual Second Edition”. It is dated 1998. I still have this and it is full of useful information. Is this still available in any form? May...

I am looking at replacing it, but they just don’t seem to be available. Is there a good alternative? I am not fussed about originality ...
