  2. Yep, always a good idea to keep an eye out for water under seats, but the box under the pass. seats controls locking, alarm, windows I believe. As @Boxob suggest most likely the switch if everything else is fine. If you have rain sensing wipers that may complicate the issue a little. I would hope a decent indy could give you a ball park figure for diagnostic and repairs. A second hand unit from a breakers might be a way forward if its is the switch unit. An unusual fault I would say, so perhaps a worthwhile punt getting a used unit, having said that I have no idea what such an item would cost used. New, your friendly OPC can tell you, with no obligation, and they are often very competitive on just parts.
  3. This is when the hood fails to locate around the windows in the correct way and, as you say, sits outside the plastic folding frame. Sometimes its an elastic strap thats loose in the back of the hood and takes about 15 mins to fix if you know what your doing, thats not me by the way. Read through from the begining as Sazzy makes it very clear whats what, good luck 👍
  4. Sorry to hear this Patt, best of luck in the job search
  5. Might be worth getting a quote from Aviva or someone @detail1 cant do any harm!
  6. Hi @detail1 I have Aviva multicar with 4 cars including my 986, and a 21 year old. I have found in the past Admiral try it on but will often reduce by large amounts, although I baled with Admiral a couple of years back in favour of Aviva. Aviva do the same come renewal.
  7. Another vote for the Nationwide Flex Plus deal here too, especially if you have a lot of phones in the family , when the repair they carried out on my daughters iPhone5 failed within a month it was replaced by an immaculate used 5s daughter delighted -
  8. Same car, garaged, Hertfordshire full NCB with my wife also similar ages about £250 8000 miles p.a. no track, windscreen included, Aviva multi car policy. Social and domestic with European cover.
  9. Thats a great " how to thread" thread thats going to be very useful for sure
  10. It would appear it is the facelift cars that have clips on the top socket, to state the obvious.
  11. My late 02 facelift 986 has the clips, is yours earlier @mike597 ?
  12. Good job, Matt ? PS can see a bit of weed on the drive !
  13. Perhaps the policy is rubbish but Admiral have just quoted me £210 for 10,000 miles, for myself and wife as named driver. Have others vehicles insured with them. 2002 986.
