    Replaced the wiper relay. Water has got in somehow and rusted one of the pins.

    Replaced one of my rear door lock modules, with the door locked shut. Many cuts and profanities later, I have a fully working rear door, puddle light and interior illumination. Thoroughly recommend the job to those who are into self torture or are very very very bored........

    Contacted via eBay to the seller who sold the sai delete plate as it still hasn't turned up...should of popped to jabba and see if they had one. Once I get that I'm going to delete the aircon also with a stock belt from euro £9. Never use aircon so may as well get it out and sai has the standard issues.

    Did the door seal on the front driver door today. Not much fun when it's raining down. Will have to try and get the floor dry now.

    Is it easy to get the carpet up enough to help get air circulating underneath to speed up the drying?

    Also, when putting it back together, I noticed on the door carrier, at the far end of the loom, it branches into 3 connectors, one for the door lock, one for the puddle light, and another one that seems to be unused on my car (unless I forgot something major). What's that connector used for?

    It's a K03 turbo, oil seals have gone, but it could do with a full rebuild or new cartridge.

    I've put for sale threads up for both wheels and tyres.

    Wheels are Team Dynamic Pro-race 1.2s in black 18x8's with Toyo T1R rubber, seen about 14 miles on the road in total.. £600 asking.

    Recaro I'm reluctant to get rid of as it's so good, but have it up for £190 I think, which is high.... but would take offers.
