Monsieur Windrush. You are not the only one. ( PS. Have you never doubted yourself ??? )

But you need a few mad ones to make the sane ones come alive.

Tell you what though; you ought to come over here and try and understand the French. They're not at all like the Brits and it's beginning to rub off on me as you can see.

C'est la vie. 22 years in France and just cos the original thread was over 6 years old doesn't make it not applicable today, does it. Or do you think I should now ignore it ??

I like to go back through the forums' history from time to time out of interest and I happened to discover the welcome message and responded to it.

With an old gent like yourself, and that includes me, we both have much much more time behind us that we have now remaining in front.

I see you visit reunions of long gone days so what is there strange in me going back and looking at the past too ?

Does that help you a little to understand my actions, now they are not so different from your own ??


By the way, and as to the future, Merry Xmas and a happy new year.


Colvert. Wishing you all you wish yourself.

Thumbs up Hello from Hamburg, Germany

It's nice to be here. I got the tip via the UK SD1 Club forum and hope to be here as much as possible.

I'm originally from Worthing/Brighton UK.

First impressions are good! :-)

Question Rover 75 specialist in Norway

The mechanic I normally use in Drammen, Norway is reluctant to do work on things like door handles and locks because the parts are hard to find here and the work is time consuming. His best offer is that if I obtain the parts he will fit them. But without dismantling the door I have no idea what parts are needed. Does anyone know of a Rover specialist in Norway, preferably within, say, 150km of Drammen?

The specific problem is that the outside driver's door handle came off in my hand a few months ago and now the rear door on the same side is showing the same symptoms, won't open from the outside even though both doors open fine from the inside.

I've looked in the Haynes manual for instructions for removing and replacing the door trim but it looks altogether too much work for me to do self, not to mention the risk of breaking the various clips (which also seem to be hard to find). I don't even have a garage let alone a workshop and I've never been much good with this sort of craftsmanship anyway (I'm an electronics engineer).

I'm beginning to think I'll have to drive the car to the UK to get that sort of thing fixed.

Any advice?

The car is a 1999 Rover 75 Connoisseur in British Racing Green and I'm very fond of it but it's horribly expensive when things go wrong (here in Norway anyway).

Hi

If it's any help, removing the door cards isn't actually that difficult - I'm not particularly handy but I followed some instructions on these pages and it was quite straightforward. There is one point where you just have to be brave and lift and pull, firmly. If you do break a few clips it's no big deal - they are pennies/cents on eBay. It sounds like the sliding retainer behind the door that holds the door handle against the door has slipped out. It just needs pushing back with perhaps some glue/paint/gunk to stop it sliding out again. I think it will be obvious when you get the door card off! But I do know it's not the kind of job to be messing about with in bad weather, outdoors, with freezing fingers...a warm garage and a screwdriver is all you need though.
