    Roland,

    Thanks for your advice. It gives every symptom of what you have described. As for the VIN it is on the A pillar and when we rolled it off the truck it is too close to the wall to open the door to read. I couldn't even get a mirror in to try and read it that way. I do however have a number that appears in a "gap" in the dash down near the bottom of the windscreen.

    That number is VF 36 DXFVJ 2113 1389.

    I will be ringing the dealer in a moment or two to see if he will give me the details so I can fiddle along from there. I will also price a starter from him. Problem is he is 220km away so it is not always easy.

    Will email you after I have spoken with them.

    At least I now have an excuse to use the 203 every day.

    Peter J (Flash) Flanagan

    PS do you know the Torpies?

    Roland liked post by DoubleChevron On thread : A spot of rust ... opinions on how to approach this?
    That whole area is going to be gone. It'll need to be cut out and then any rust in the structure behind it repaired. Not a small job at all. Very complex with all those body lines meeting there. ...
