    Re: prevalence of stealing

    They are used as taxis, so a real target. Unfortunately the Etios also a target for the engine.

    To the OP, Jeep Cherokee might be a safer replacement.

    Re: Bolero help - Seats

    Sounds like you enjoy the vehicle albeit the seats. Recommendation from me would be you get them reupholstered and repacked as OEM ones from the breakers will have similar manufacturing flaws.
  19. Re: Any tricks to lube the clutch plate splines without taking out the gearbox?

    Motorcycle lube sound like an option.

    I suppose best access point may be by the release bearing, provided you don't get any lube onto the clutch plate itself.

    Seems like the bendix has had better days. Stripped and assembled the starter, refitted, turn the key, and starter still just spins.
    Will strip and remove bendix and source after lockdown.
