I seem to remember someone else mentioned these plugs in a forum question some time ago, but I can't remember what they were eventually found to be intended to be used for.

Perhaps if you search back through the posts you might find the answer!

Why wouldn't it start?Was a reason found?

I believe the black plugs are to cap the chassis tubes - these are left off to allow the cars to be clamped during shipment from Japan.

Sorry to hear about the non-starting. SWMBO had a new Rover 420, this died on its first run but was traced to a connector popping out of the management system - hopefully, it's a silly like that.

Good luck.

Regarding the 2 little black plugs - These are bungs that are suppose to be fitted when the dealer pdi's the vehicle. They pop in the chassis to close a hole. When these cars are shipped from Japan they are chained tightly to stop movement in rough waters. Some dealers don't bother fitting them back. If you ask they will do it.

But what was the startproblem?

Ok i ended up reading the manual on how to start a car :thumbsup: it now starts ok as i have never had to put the clutch down before to start the car sorry for being a dunce LOL i did not start it at the dealer they started it for us

The black bungs have a small diagram on the bag it says they go underneath the the car will it do any harm if they are not fittted.

It certainly is always worth reading the Owners Manual whenever you get a new car.

Your dealer should have briefed you on that aspect of the car at the handover.

Pleased to hear that you have got it sorted out.......................now get out and enjoy the car :thumbsup:
