Having just hopefully fixed my ACC I got to thinking that maybe it would be a sensible idea to maybe put together a list of common problems and their solutions so that people dont need to keep asking the same sort of questions.
I am quite sure that a lot of the people on these boards have all gone through the same problem solving routines either by working it out for themselves or asking in here...

Actualy some kind of archive/file section for each list wouldn't be such a bad idea. On the 9000 list for example 'how do I change the cam/balance chain' and questions regarding how to replace and repair what goes wrong behind the dash/facia are reccurent themes.
These ideas have been suggested in the past. I am all for it in principle - the problem is down to who compiles them. I certainly no longer have the time.
If there are any volunteers for this then I will publish and host the information.
An alternative or addition is that we could increase the functionality of these forums. That means I need to upgrade the scripts at a cost of US$199 I think. Any offers to chip in a few quid to do this? There are 995 registered users - of course I doubt more than 10% are active. Anyone fancy upgrading the forums to have search engine, smilies, information on no.s of posts etc?

I'll chip in 20 of my British notes! Saved a fortune in Beer Money since I've been using this - so it's about time I gave something back!

Is this secure? etc, etc?
Just that I've never heard of this concept.

Joe - think it is a different Joe after seeing your thread on the "Cars and bikes you wish you'd kept" thread.
Apologies for that!
Quite alright, nothin against being called a gentleman. Doesn't happen very often. In fact this is my first time.
