Hello, not sure if anyone would be interested in this lol but might finally get round to giving my neglected ST24 some TLC and perhaps next year even some light mods.

I won't bore you with the entire list at the moment as it's quite long with lots of small issues.

But was just wondering about two quick things : First of all is it possible to get a new fog light assembly/housing at all anywhere or is it just a case of waiting for a used one to pop up. One of mine is a bit cracked and the lamp doesn't work but maybe I should check the electrical stuff first.

Also and kind of more important is the creaky/rocking.wobbly seat. I hear this is a common problem on the MKIIs. Is there anyway I could get this fixed as the seat is alright otherwise. Would anyone be able to tell me what I would need to ask the garage/welder to do please?

Cheers

Oliver

What are the specs on the fog light surround. If its small enough it might be possible to 3D print. Otherwise yes more than likely a second hand unit. Can you not repair the one you have?

@Neil is the man for most things 24/200 related. Saying that 220 related as well. One man data centre and forum 😂.

Lets see some pics of your beast 👍🏻

Hope you can find everything you need to get to where you want. :yep:

 

Even if not many of us read your entire blog on the car, at least if you do make a list of the full jobs you have carried out you have an inventory and relay of all the tasks you have carried out :thumbsup:

 

Always good to see where you've come from :grin:

I have a pair of fog lights and the covers here that probably wont be used, not sure of the value but happy to hear an offer :)

As for the seat, have you tried tightening the bolts on the rails? Mine was lose causing rocking etc. Or you could be rusted through?

There's not a lot to seats so as above check that it is bolted to the floor correctly.

Changed the spark plugs to try to fix a misfire in gears 3 4 and 5 from about 2500 -4000 and also for a baseline as I didn't know when it was last done. Old ones looked ok ish. One HT lead was slightly dodgy, and might need a new coil pack too. That means the manifold off again but oh well.

Is that normal carbon build up on the butterflies? Got some throttle body cleaner that I can use on that.

Alright, here's some better pics than the ones I could upload to the Garage... (That :censored: puddle wasn't from my car, honest!)

This is my kind of thread. Love the car.

Not sure about the ST24 but I have seen build up like that before. A good clean and works wonders.

Its very normal for owners to take the upper and lower inlet off and give them a good clean, very common to get dirty. Just dont forget new gaskets when putting back together. These v6 hate an air leak!

Cheers for the help and kind words guys. I will get round to that at some point, maybe when changing leads and coil.

BTW is there a way to check that the secondary opens (other than while driving)? Could I supply 12v to something and hear a click or does it need vacuum too?

Rev the nuts of it whilst under the bonnet using the throttle cable and when revs over 4500 I think it is you will see the arm movement opening them up
