    /Wave If the leak was on the driver's side, roughly below the belts, then it's almost certainly the water pump. If that needs doing, and also given the downtime, then you should change the cambelt too - it needs to come off anyway. Full service and change of all the oils/fluids/belts/plugs might as well be done too. You can use radiators that fit most 8G Galants. If you have an auto, you should get one that has the cooling loop for the autobox. It's the more common radiator, so if you...

    /Wave Nice to see pics, and such a detailed opening post too! :2thumbsup The GDI really benefits from being run on super unleaded, as it runs in the Eco GDI mode much more with the higher octane fuel. I seem to recall that this reduces carbon build-up too. You can take out the door sensor and clean the contacts. This should at least give it some more life for a while. Handy to have working properly though, as if the alarm auto-locking is on, you can potentially lock yourself out of...

    Hi Nev, hope you can help- bought my legnum vr4 twin turbo about two years ago, had to get a gearbox rebuild just over a year ago, because it is an import made for the Japanese and Brazilian market i thought parts would be hard to get but got sorted at a cost of £1800. Have bought a lot of servicing parts from camskills and at present waiting for two inlet valves and a few other parts. trying to get the tork settings for the head and cam but not having any luck. Does the club sell workshop manuals or do you know where I can buy one regardless of price. Not used the club before because was unsure how it all realy worked. Sorry the car is 1998 ( 27-02-1998 ).

  2. Hi Steve

    Thanks for the message.

    Unfortunately, new users aren't able to post in the FS/WTB areas until they have reached three months, 10 non-spam posts, or have became a member. Having said that, in your circumstances (i.e. you're not taking the mickey!) if you post up a WTB thread in a different area, and ask me to move it, I can do. The limit is designed to prevent people simply registering just to sell stuff really.

    However, the wood window switch, despite Mitsi's love of the I-Can't-Believe-It's-Not-Wood effect in the Galant, was not an option (or part of a standard package) on any JDM or UK 8Gs. There may be possibility that it was available somewhere on a European or Asian market version - or even a USDM, although I doubt it very much on both counts, and the USDM is probably actually a different fitting anyway.

    Just thought you should know! Your best bet may be to get a match on a wood-effect vinyl, and wrap the switch?

    Good luck,

    Dude, wonder if you can help.
    I've tried several times to post in the fs/wtb section, but keep getting a message telling me I can't.

    I'm only after a wood effect window switch, that I can fit into my custom CA/CJ Colt build, and the only car that seems to have them is the VR4.

    Please can you sort priviledges for me so I can post, and PM me back?

    Thanks in advance.
