SOS FOR RAV

Post by Monster Hunter » Sat Jul 05, 2008 1:33 pm

Right guys and Gals another big job has broke out..
Rav FDH is in dire need of help!
so can we help.. its either a get Rav down here or a cross border raid into Scotland...
quote="Ravinder"]Thanks for the reply H.

Right, where do I start?! lol

Severe vibration when driving, from 50mph onwards. I think this may be drivers side driveshaft. Barely makes the car driveable.

Track rod ends are shot. Then will need to be realligned after fixed.

front brakes, discs and pads both shot. I have 282s aside that have to be fitted.
Rear pads are shot but I have replacement for these.

Downpipe is fooked, totally flattened, I have standard replacement one but may possibly replace with IT 2.5" one with elbow if I can get it soon-ish.

Currently only boosting at about 8psi but have GBE boost controller so would like this fitted and set to 11-12psi.

The heater knob inside the car has broken, pretty much just come off.

Exhaust manifold gasket is blowing like a bitch so needs replaced with uprated one but I should be able to get hold of one.

Timing belt needs replacing asap with tensioner.

Service - oil change, filter, preferably fuel filter as well, air filter needs a clean.

Need engine mounts checked.

Front Grille needs replacing. Just a swap really. I have one to swap with.

I would love it if my pulsar fmic could be fitted. I'll need to get the pipework etc but I would be happy to get this and whatever else is required. I wanna keep my air con.

H there are other things as well but my mind has gone blank. I'm that close on giving up. Its hard up here for assisstance and can be a pain at times to get parts.
I will do my best to get as many parts as I can but if I cant get them all I would be happy enough if they could be purchased down there and I will send the money for it etc.
As you can see H the list above theres quite a lot that needs doing.
The main problem with the car right now is with the battery keep going dead etc. The wiring in the car is just shockingly bad! Thanks to the previous owner. This is currently being resolved slowly with the help of an electrician. Its costing me around £300 to get sorted but I am having to do this gradually due to funds being tight just now. Thanks.

))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
I;m sure we can sort we just need to get the bits and arrange a time, garage etc etc.
H..

AL have you a garage,#
G3 could we have a derby fix it if stuck for a venue( nice double garage and BBQ)

Thanks for the post H. Really appreciate it and for all those who have volunteered to help me out. It means a lot. Just proves what a fantasic community we have on this club.
I think it would have to be around August time as some of you may be aware I have been having lots of issues with the electrics on the car at this moment. The wiring is just a complete shambles. The car was recently a fire hazard until made safe by an electrician but I'm getting all the wiring sorted this month but this will take time so hopefully all should be complete by August and then I can bring it down to the get the rest of the work done. If I have to set a provisional date then it would be probably be from thursday 28th Aug, I'll be off for a few days so that would be perfect.

Bonnie Scotland is a touch far for me, but if its in Brum or anywhere south of that, I'm happy to lend a hand depending upon the state of my diary.

I do have a garage H, but it's not really big enough for fixing cars and my old girl's car lives in there overnight, I think I can do the last weekend of August, as Leeds Festival is the weekend before.

i'm afraid it's a bit awkward now, as I'm not there and she is trying to sort out the house in preparation to sell up, so the garage is not in use - full of bits of furniture and so on.

I'm sorry about that, i wish i could help in some way, but i've not got the garage any more...
