  1. Re: Loose driver seat metal sound Hilux 2018 2.4 GD6 DC

    Now that you mention it, I had a canopy fitted. They would have done wiring to the high level brake light. All makes sense now. Thanks
  2. Re: Loose driver seat metal sound Hilux 2018 2.4 GD6 DC

    are loose bolts a thing on the Revo?
    On mine the tail light nearly fell off coz one bolt came loose and fell out and the second one was just about to before a friend noticed it
  3. Re: VW Citi Golf 1.4i 2007 revs to and stays at 3000rpm after touching the throttle

    it is a cable driven throttle? If so, check that the cable is running freely. But as mentioned, start with cleaning the throttle body.

    That must be a really big turbo. Power is coming on late in the rev range. Hows that going to be on track? Will need to keep the revs high to remain in the power band.

    Re: Ponta Malongane Tips

    just to add.

    We stayed at Coco Rico. R2500/night for a 8 sleeper with 3 double beds, 1 bunk bed and 3 bathrooms. Very well kept and clean.

    I'd definitely stay there again.
