    Technical Resources Link

    Here’s a link to GwagenRegster, an American G t has a load of manuals, diagrams and instructions for various models of the G. You may need to register to get full access to the documents and pictures, but I thought it’s worth it. http://www.gwagenregister.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=14 Enjoy...

    Hooter not working

    Hooter fixed. Thank you Andrew for the spare coil thingy. I think my old coiled ribbon had some breaks in it. Anyway, a little modification to the new housing and it is working perfectly Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    W460 parts wanted

    That’s a great price for the engine mounts. I get good service from the guys at M2 Cargo City if there is something that you can only get at the agents.

    Hooter not working

    Thanks Leonard, yes, voltage. [emoji846] unlike engineers and electricians, accountants and bankers seem to use the terms interchangeably [emoji23]. I’ll fiddle some more today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hooter not working

    Easy to get the middle part of the steering wheel off. Torx30 for those who need to know. No sign of a coil but there’s no current at that end, funny thing is there is current at the connector just before the wires enter the steering wheel shaft cover. I could rig a wire from there to activate...

    Mystery by mystery you’ll get it all sorted. I’m sure it’s (mostly) satisfying progress. Hopefully we get to see you and your G in the flesh sometime soon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nice! Some explosives [emoji51] I’ll try that. I see the two holes. Are they torx bolts? A philips doesn’t seem to bite. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hooter not working

    My hooter decided to stop working suddenly. When I put a test wire into the wiring connector closest to the steering wheel and earth it, the hooter sounds (scared the daylights out of me with my head in the footwell) Could it be the actual switch on the steering wheel? How does one go about...

    W461 central locking

    Thank you. I saw that on the door I worked on, the plastic sheet was in place. I had to cut it to get the actuator and locking mechanism out and then tape it up. I’ll need to open all the doors and swap out actuators to see if it makes a difference. Thank you for the offer of the spare one...

    Advice re my 'new' 300GD

    Hi Fig, Congratulations. It’s been a long time. I had great speedo refurb service from Reef Industrial in Marshalltown Johannesburg. (011) 334-1544 They did a complete rebuild of a broken speedo for me in a day for R1500 last year. Regards Ant Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
