    I’ve bought the banana arms for the rear but I’m struggling to see how I got access t the nut/bolt for the inner bush. Is there a guide somewhere from someone who’s succeeded in the past? Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello folks, I've got a missing wiper arm on my 900 and I've bought a replacement. I was going to fit it at the weekend there but I came across a problem. It looks as though one of the previous owners ripped the old arm off to stop it scratching the glass on the headlight. By doing this they...

    Just a few lines to say thank you. Without this website and indeed this forum in particular I would not attempted to replace my trailing arm bushes. Finished fitting polly ones today and the results are clear, one of the old bushes was completely shot. This explains my increased inside tyre...

    Hi On a 93MY 9000, how do you remove the arm rest trim panel from the door liner? The material on mine has come loose and I want to get it off and re-glue the material. Getting the whole inside door panel off is not a problem as I've done that a few times, but can the arm rest bit be...
