  1. Hey, I own this now and its coming along quite nicely despite taking a while, any previous owners still active for some questions on it? The owner I bought it from was an absolute tard who'd took out the afh for an 8v (which was a mess and he lied about the parts it had in it), butchered EVERY single wire, half "fitted" some cream corrado seats, mangled the brake lines and the list goes on, car was a sh*t state. It's had a fair bit done so far including; NOS black interior, early grill-lights-bumpers, carbon door cards, stitch-welded & smoothed bay, small rust repairs, total strip

  4. If you sit in the back, you should be able to see where the cables hook on the latches at the bottom of the seat back on each side. They're not connected together by anything but the cables and handle. If you pull the latches back by hand individually, they should spring forward again regardless of whether the cable it good or not, if they don't, it's either the spring's come off or the latches are gunked up. You should be able to see the hooked ends of the cables in the latches. The cables should both feel tight with the latches returned. If they don't, give them a pull, chances

  5. its a cable operated hook each side ...with a spring to return back to the latched position, maybe the spring has come off or broken? fairly easy to ease the cover off and investigate if need be

  9. If anyone is wondering why captions stop part way through it’s because I’ve been put on the Insta naughty step for adding too much similar content in a short space of time so I can’t add captions for 14 days. Must just have been too efficient last night when uploading them fuelled by Henry Westons. I’ll sort them when I can.

  10. Thanks, I ordered one on ebay.de. I'll fix the one I have with in my own time and put it up for sale on ebay if it works or if anyone here needs one they can message me. I managed to get the pin out using the bottom of a drill bit with the correct diameter as a punch. Once apart though there's another circlip under the "rotor" which is really hard to access so you really need the right circlip pliers. Ordered some on Amazon although kind of annoying to buy some just to remove one circlip (so I'll probably just send them back after use 😜)
