    Hi ya,

    Are the warning light plug fixtures a standard part used in lots of other cars? I am missing 5 (including the oil and water temp lights)

    cheers

    I've seen the globes and bases at Sunday Markets, they are T5 globes from memory.

    You can often persuade the bulbs to come out of the holders and replace them. They are a standard item in the Navra range that Repco sells. Jaycar also sell a LED 12 volt globes in white, blue red green and yellow already fitted to the twist on bases but they only work in one orientation and are probably brighter than an original bulbs.

    Cheers, Ken

    I've got plenty of blown globes/holders here if you need them. You'll just have to fit some replacement bulbs into them. If you haven't guessed I have plenty of spare CX bits .........

    I should pop up and see you. It would be a good way to give the car a run. Let me know if that would be okay and, if so, when would be the best time.

    cheers

    That's not a good sign Warren. It sounds like the previous owner just removed the warning globes one by one as things broke down. The old blown globes should surely be there. I'd be taking the cluster right off and checking for all the missing globe holders. They shouldn't be MISSING. They should still be attached to the wires , hanging around somewhere under the instruments block. Just unscrew the speedo cable and remove the instruments, and have a good look around.

    Hi George,

    The holders twist into a circuit board and so, are not held in by wires so, they are gone (I did have a look around)

    cheers

    Warren

    I will be coming in the CX Shane so, you (and I) can rest easy....

    I'm sure he realises we are just joking around.............. Of course I wouldn't go rescue the XM .... He might want me to work on it

    I would not blame you for wanting to doge that bullet! I get the impression though that he is very capable of working on it himself!

    Come on Shane, you know you cannot resist a challenge:
    Reverse lights don't work;
    Car goes up and down at traffic lights (This is known in nautical terms as "Pig F**cking");
    Car cuts out about 2 minutes after starting it for the first thing in the and then is okay for the rest of the day;
    Starter solonoid - sticky
    gearbox solonoids - sticky
    seats - sticky ()

    Ya reckon you can have all that sorted by yesterday?
