  1. Ok I'll answer my own question then! I found it on the VIN plate under the bonnet. Hope I got the right colour in the end ;->
  2. Hi all, I need to get a touch-up pen for our 2000/X Hiace Regius in white but I see there's a couple of different whites it could be. Please can anyone tell me where the location of the paint code is, and what number(s) I need to be looking for? Thanks very much.
  3. Hi all, After nearly 18 months of rolla g6r ownership I have finally sold the car and it has gone to pastures new. If it weren't for the fuel economy I would have kept it but my boring golf 1.9D is doing 600 miles to a tank whereas the rolla only did 340 on a good day :-< Thanks for all the advice and help from all on here. I must admit I do still have 'feelings' for a 1.6GTi and if I ever have the spare cash, you never know I may be back. Take care all, and enjoy your rolla's!
  4. In the end it was the oil cooler breather pipe that goes under the radiator that had split and was ****** out oil. And the corrugated piece was from the bottom of the air conditioning condensor and apparently isn't important! Would have cost me £160 to fix this at the Honda garage, local garage sorted it out for me for £35! Thanks for all the suggestions peeps, hope no-one else has this problem.
  5. I will take a look at the belts tomorrow, thanks for the suggestion. If you click on the thumbnail it goes much larger and you'll see there it is corrugated - it does look like some sort of paper element??? I've not seen anything like it before, but the fact it was just languishing there makes me think the bloke doing the service wasn't concentrating! It's cut evenly along the length of it though, no idea what it is! Cheers all
  6. I've had a 6-speed in my g6r and it's not all that great tbh. If you have the time/inclination then go for it but I doubt you'll notice much difference. Let us know how you get on if you do.
  7. Hi All, Friday before last I took the rolla in for its annual service with the Honda garage I use (they've serviced it before) and now there is an oil slick under the car: Also, I found this weird corrugated piece on top of the plastic cowling below the pulleys, anyone know what it might be? Here you can see the amount of oil that has spread all over the plastic cowling (where the corrugated piece was found): The oil level is down to 3/4 now, not good for a car that's only been driven 75 miles since being serviced. I felt underneath (what I think is) the oil filter and that's bone dry. The sump plug seems fine as the oil leak is higher up than that. Any ideas what's going on? Obviously I will be contacting the garage tomorrow, just want to have a bit more knowledge so I don't get BS'd by them! Cheers all.
  8. Thanks Iceman. I'll have to find my rolla Haynes manual and see if that can help me further to locate the area you mention as I've never looked 'down there' before! Thanks for your help
  9. My rolla G6R has recently started squeaking at me each time I press down the clutch! Can anyone tell me where I can lubricate whatever it may be squeaking so that the noise will hopefully go away? Cheers
  10. I had a Halfrauds cover for my old VW Beetle. Even though I beefed it up with extra straps it still managed to blow off the car when the winds were gusting, but managed to stay lieing on the top of my Dads volvo roof rack all the way to Sainsburys and back! Personally I wouldn't bother on a modern car.
  11. The TTE badge is a very strange one. As you say, it's like it's got gel in it - really weird! Mine has a bit of a shadow across it now but never mind, it still looks the biz. Funny how many rolla bits/cars end up in Ireland!
  12. What a scoop picking up that TTE spoiler for such a good price - well done mate!
  13. When I was getting my TTE spoiler resprayed the paint sprayer gave up trying to take it off - twas so fragile he said, so he ended up having to spray round it which wasn't ideal but it was either that or losing the TTE badge, which wasn't an option of course ;->
  14. 125 - 130bhp and these lil' motors would be perfect mate;-> Stange how the E9 had a 1.6 twin cam with 130bhp - would one of those fit in an E11?
  15. Great work with those indicators Paul! I wish I'd had the time before I flogged that white TTE replica to get the clear side indicators off it :-<
