Anyone had problems with their Auxiliary 12v port.

The one on my Cactus detached :oops: :roll: :twisted: , came out (well the silver negative part) when I removed a very tight plug from it :cry: . Pushed it back inside , but I guess its either a lower dash out job. Unless I train a very manageable snake or ferret, to take the bit thats left ( the pl...

Citroen.

Most dealers don`t know shi&e about their wares, apart from how to sell them to you, the spanner twirlers don`t know how to tie their own shoe laces without consulting their laptop :roll: . All I ask is manufacturers to tell you. Don`t switch the engine off whilst moving :P . I.e. when coasting up t...

Re: Hi there folks.... New guy here... Looking for advice with regards to brake lights that are stuck on......

As it had the servo and the operating lever at their side, the L/h side, the lever was connected to the drivers side by a rod that ran across the floor under the carpet.` Le cars` ar...

Re: Hi there folks.... New guy here... Looking for advice with regards to brake lights that are stuck on......

Have you checked the wiring to and from the switch?? The switch maybe is not the problem. If its the same as the broke one. I.e. Citroen (or whoever makes them for them) if it looks the same. How does it work by bluetooth?????

Re: From MINI to Cactus!

Also don`t try to race it around anything slippy like wet roundabouts nor corners. Or you`ll need wipers on your side windows. And keep an eye on your tyre pressures, a slight difference could mean brown trouser time. Although you may amuse other motorists and passing lawmen. :D :D :D :D :D :D :oops...

Re: engine overheating

Do you lose any the contents of the radiator when it overheats? Have you checked the system for trapped air, leaks.

Re: Disks or drums?

Have rear drums on my 18 Cactus flair, I hate rear discs, as they always jam on and waste the pads, warp the the disc rotors too, Bmw had a great Idea around the problem of mechanical cable operated disc brakes. To fit both inboard discs to stop the car and drum handbrake outboard on the rear axle. ...

Name`d and shamed.

Nice duckie, does it lose control on wet surfaces (like most cactuses, as the ride heights high, lots of body roll, all the weights in the front) and end up in a ditch or hedgerow backwards :lol: :lol: . Saved mines from such a demise :roll: quite a few times. I`ll maybe slow down or fit better rear...
