    And bolt lengths are measured from under the head. I reckon you might want the 6x30 ones. :)

    Looks like the front has been facelifted using a second facelift UK car, as although it has the bonnet bulge, grill and bumper, it has the single fogs. They have retained the JDM headlights. The rear is still PFL, although the differences between PFL and FL on Galant VR-4s is pretty much limited to the light clusters being updated, unlike the change in bodywork for the Legnum between PFL and FL.

    I think Kev may have managed to do this and is possibly in the process of writing up a detailed account with details of the necessary parts. Watch this space! /popcorn

    Facelift doors are the same, which should help sourcing them a little. adaxo is breaking a facelift, but don't know if the rear doors are still available (although they're definitely not white!). :)

    Main code-reading thread can be found here, though you might not be able to see it. However, this is the first page: Here is a simple illustration of the OBD-II port located on the underside of the dash, near the driver's left knee: ---------------------------- \. .\ ..------------------------

    The flashing N usually occurs when the box is in limp mode. There may be a stored fault code that could point to the issue, which you can obtain using the 'flashy dash' method. I'll paste something below that gives you instructions. But yes, the common issues are wrong ATF level, wrong ATF (e.g. Dexron III rather than ATF that meets or exceeds Mitsubishi SP-III ATF) or worn out fluid (often dark brown in colour). If it is a fluid issue, then Amsoil ATF is by far and away the best thing...

    Hi Alex, does it have the fixings too? I think you can't use the original ones for some reason. I should really look at the carbon cover I already have, although I know that one came with the stainless fitting bolts.

    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 ). Francey
  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.
