Re: New member

Congratulations on saving such a rare car :clapping

The HH/R 400 series is often overlooked and not many people realise how well-equipped some of the higher-spec versions are.

And the T-series is a fantastic engine :cool

Re: How do I rejuvenate a Bonnet Insulation Pad

What type of dirt is on it? General dry dust etc? (in which case I would suggest using a suitable brush and vacuum cleaner) Or oily grime? (In which case I would suggest an aerosol foam degreaser) You could still give it a full 'soap and water' treatment, but you would need to allow it to dry thorou...

Re: Cabby windbreaker?

Would it not be easier to just drive the car with the roof up? :laughing2

Or even buy an R8 with a roof? :wink3

Re: Can I disable my 2005 Rover 45 Alarm?

I had a similar problem with a 2005 car, to the extent that I could be driving along the road with the alarm going off! It was impossible to reset it using the fob or any other method. From what I can remember, taking the fuse out would silence the main alarm (needed to disarm the immobiliser with t...

Re: Temptation

I have a 1.8VVC with 116,000 on the clock and the engine still seems to be in a good state of health: no unpleasant vibrations and doesn't use any oil.

Re: Rover 600

:welcome We can be especially helpful to owners of 600s who share engines with 'our' cars (so that is the 620ti and 620 diesel) but all are welcome! Also, several of our members own other Rovers, not just 200/400/25/45 and I know some of them own 600s. So stick around and ask us anything you need to...

Re: Hi all

Thanks for the pics :wink3

Looks like a good straight example, ready for a little TLC and a show car in the making!

Quite rare in Flame Red, too: most 420 turbos seemed to have been metallic. And a later (94) model as well, with the Ash interior :cool

Thanks John, but that is the same view that Duncan and I had when we visited the FB page. Can't see the other 9 photos without a FB account.....

Re: Blue 2003 Rover 45

I have recently acquired an MoT failure Rover 25 1.4 and have been quoted £170 by cartakeback.com to scrap it (that is the price they will pay if they come to collect it) However, I am stripping it of anything useful first, so that price is likely to go down :wink3 If you are thinking of trying to b...

You really need to get yourself over to Spain and pick up the black one with the dodgy head gasket :laughing2

You would almost have a full set of colours then!

Re: 2005 25 SEi Stepspeed with a running issue

:clapping

That's a great save! And it's a shame the Restoration Show won't be taking place this year, because we would have had a great exhibit there with a story to go with it.

Incidentally, the dealer's name on the number plates is the dealer who sold my 220 Turbo new in 1995 :)

Re: Sensitive throttle

Well, I tried this on my spares donor Rover 25 1.4 this morning and it behaves more or less as yours does! Lowest rpm achievable with the pedal pressed slightly is 1750 and a similar thing occurs when moving the quadrant by hand (couldn't see the tacho for an exact reading!) The car is being scrappe...
