Even if you just bond some rubber flaps as best you can, it will reduce the amount of hot air sucked in. Theres also the grom...

Re: Wiring Diagram Type 3

Re: Sole survivors: the very rarest cars on UK roads today

And infact this shows 1 TL on the road. But doesnt show a capacity. Im guessing its an admin issue, as there are many ways of refering to our cars.

Re: Type 3 Thermostat Fitting

Glad you found it, at least they are opening and closing now. I would guess that the thermostat is getting tired. Keep your eye out for a replacement at a jumble or on ebay over the summer. Then youre prepared when/if it does fail :)
