Default My free and low cost offers

Sorry for this apparently devious way to expand the list of offers which used to fit in my sig, but will no longer.

As some will already know, I make quite a few things available to the general forum membership, so long as my out of pocket expenses are covered. I have also produced a few useful How To's as well, which were linked in my sig, the problem is the forum's sig length is very limited.

So I have posted them here in a more complete format, with now just a link to this post in my sig.

The Modified Handbrake Compensator - Whilst I have stopped producing these, I can recommend the version now offered by another member of this forum. I understand they are offered at not much more than I was charging. Fixing them up is really not a great deal of work, so why pay more? Contact me and I will pass the details on..

Should anyone around the NN15 area, be unable or not feel confident to swap their own compensator, send 'John H' on this forum a PM - Click HERE.
Phil-T4 also offers an install service.

How to fix a poor Handbrake HERE

Replace an ailing MAF Sensor, with an absolutely genuine and the correct Bosch part, for much less (fraction of the cost) you would normally pay. No need to risk a fake or compatible or a used one - Find the details HERE

I have for loan a simple home made ABS diagnostic unit to help you determine which of the four sensors might be at fault. This makes it easy to be certain which sensor has failed, rather than swapping and hoping. Build your own, or borrow mine - so long as you contribute to my costs - £7 plus a £10 returnable deposit. HERE

FBH How To - Install, Test and Service - HERE.

Radioguy DD install with HK amp and sub - HERE

DVB-T install reusing OEM Hi-line TV antennas - HERE


Free loan of the essential spanner needed for the CDT/CDTi belts swap, £7 postage and a £15 returnable deposit needed - To email me to enquire about this please click HERE

Free basic OBD diagnostics including MAF check - Please click HERE to enquire, but you will need to come to me so locals only.

Any deposits are repaid just as soon as the item is safely returned, so please obtain a postal receipt.

Car collection and delivery free - to or from the entire UK, expect to pay much reduced rail fares, the fuel and any other expenses incurred, as you would have to do anyway, doing it yourself. The vehicle must be 100% road worthy, legal, taxed, valid MOT and you must have the car covered on insurance. More details HERE

To email me please click HERE

Sorry guys, costs are rising and I'm only aiming to cover my out of pocket costs..

Actually, I'm quite selfish - I do these things purely for my own entertainment, amusement and to satisfy my insatiable curiosity.

Harry - do you have a pricing for a full compensator unit and postage to Australia? I"m thinking it may be better to pay a full price given the cost to (possibly) send back the used part... Cheers Nick

I have now stopped offering the compensators, as they are no longer needed. The mini compensator is a much better design than the Rover 75 one, even when refurbished and modified.

Hi Harry - could you expand on this a bit please - I need to modify my handbrake compensator on the ZT-T.

Sorry if I have missed something - are you saying a Mini compensator fits and is a better bet than modifying the original?

I have done a search here on this but not getting anything.

Thanks
