  1. Re: Roadster Mk2 Marina Based Parts required

  5. Re: Cabrio Hunter. Throttle/clutch cables

    If you have the originals and they are simply worn out you should be able yo get new ones made by someone like Speedy Cables. May be easier than trying to track down old part numbers.

    If you do go the IVA route the first step is to get a copy of the manual. I believe you can download load it nowadays.

    Re: Cabrio engine keeps stopping

    Does the engine management system have a diagnostic port? Most do. If so I would investigate the possibility of getting a diagnostic tool that plugs in. I guess there will be some fault codes.

    Re: B Series Engine Oil Cooler

    Thanks for the answers. My thinking behind the question was:
    The engine bay on the Roadster is pretty compact. Anything that helps dissipate heat must be a good thing.
