    My turn signal used to make a rather loud clicking sound when engaged. In the last week, the turn signals blink, but the tell-tale, loud clicking is gone. I miss it! How can this be fixed? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated! :)

    I just got the car and has this type of filter that looks like a cone and is just exposed (not in any type of plastic box as most cars have) I am not sure how to maintain change as needed. I believe is an upgrade and may be just need to be cleaned ? Can anyone share some wisdom?

    Hello I've got an MOT advisory on the trailing arm bushes and have a few quick questions I'm hoping one of you will be able to answer, before I approach a garage. It does actually feel like it drives OK and strangely it's only the front suspension that ever makes any noise on speed bumps...
