  1. If you've got really specific requirements you got to be prepared to travel.
  2. You can unscrew panel in about 5 minutes, lift clear of roof, there is enough slack cable to allow this. Once unscrewed raise front half on something to allow access underneath, and then repeat with rear. Make sure you remove all fixings screws to do the above, front lip just gently pulls off and snaps back on.
  3. There was only Morris Marina Cars, however, in the van version you could order either Austin or Morris models. Not sure what the difference was though.
  4. Useful link/information. Thank you for your help John.
  5. I have recently acquired this and fitted in awning rail. It is several years old but has never been used. Is there any requirement to fit some form of protection between rolled up awning and side of caravan whilst towing? Thanks for any information.
  6. My 2016 Unicorn 3 Cadiz went in to workshop for some damp/damage repairs relating to the issue you mention. They explained that both side rails had been replaced with modified parts to deflect water direct to ground. Still not sure if workshop modified new parts or if Bailey supplied them. Was reading 99% damp prior to repair. Fine now. This was both O/S & N/S sections behind axle. The front sections were fine. I posted this issue when first diagnosed in April and did not receive any replies.
  7. Make sure the black packing pieces have been removed from the door frame. Most likely done by now, but worth checking.
  8. I thought mine where the same as yours as looked in poor condition. Closer inspection showed they were actually covered in a transparent film, this peeled off to reveal shiny caps just like new. worth checking.
  9. Just got call from workshop. Van ready to collect on Monday. No serious damp damage, but dried out and new modified rails fitted.
  10. No, its the white seal that is part of the rail itself. The staining is black blobs that seem impossible to clean. (reply to charlieboy)
  11. I’d not heard of this either until this years (third) service. My van is currently in workshop with very high damp along n/s floor below fridge right along to under shower and also the o/s floor below wardrobe. Could turn out to be major repair.
  12. Was wondering if any other owner had water ingress issues from the above, this is the lower rail with the amber side markers?
  13. Was wondering if anyone can recommend any product that can clean the black staining on the white rubber seal that is inserted through the complete length of the awning rail on both sides of the van? Also the flimsy white gasket that inserts around panels on both front and rear of van could do with a good clean. Thanks.
  14. Was looking for recommendations for suitable mirror for the face lift 2017 on model. I used Milenco on earlier 2014 cx5 and always found them to be a very poor and usually loose fit. Not sure if newer cx5 has different shape mirrors to allow satisfactory use of Milenco. Thanks for your advice.
  15. Plus the blue plastic covering centre wheel caps should be removed, they start corroding around edge if left.
