  1. Now he's got the answer he may want to get the original remote repaired.
  2. When mine packed up a few years ago I used this company: https://www.arelectronics.co.uk/contents/en-uk/d18_Caravan-Mover-Repairs.html Took remote to them and they repaired whilst I waited. ( Pre covid days)
  3. Have a look here : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/383729081291 I brought some for my 2016 Lexon,
  4. Teach me to look at dates. Just received my replacements for my van and was looking for way to fit the new type. Just waiting for lockdown to end and fit them.
  5. here are instruction for fitting new clips : Plisse Excellent Window Blind and Fly Screen Catch-Clip Attachment_fitting-instructions.pdf
  6. Just had a towbar fitted to my Kuga and the mobile fitter asked me what I was going to tow and did I need to have fridge and live feed for ATC . Said yes and all fitted and he checked it worked as well as making sure the fog lights and reversing sensers were cut off. It all depends on the fitter. Most garages do not fit towbars but sub contract them to specialist so it all depents what the said if this is the case.
  7. See the copy of Powrtouch Evolution Manual The Powrtouch is supplied with an inline switch which allows the isolation of the electrical control box from the Battery. The suggested location for the fitting of this switch is in the sealed side compartment within the battery box (see NOTE below), usually beneath the 240volt mains connector. The reason for this location is to ensure that the Powrtouch isolation key will obstruct the use of the 240-volt AC mains connector. This is another reason to have one fitted as if connected to the mains could damage the control box.
  8. Try Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/HELLA-2XS-008-479-061-Marker/dp/B00H8S45K8/ref=asc_df_B00H8S45K8/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310746095651&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=12653264198768989912&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006482&hvtargid=pla-563605177091&psc=1&th=1&psc=1
  9. Contact the dealer to see if previous owner left it on the back of the television,
  10. Hi Gary, I had 2 early Santa Fe's which both had clutch trouble, The flywheel was a dual mass constroction and it came away from the boss. Both were replaced under warranty by local Derby hyundai agent no problem with the first but had to fight for the second one , and after that I would only have automatic gearboxes except for an eleven plate IX3 5 which was manual. This developed problems at 25,000 where the clutch would start to slip so I traded in for another automatic Santa Fe and have not had any trouble at all.
  11. As above it was in the kitchen on myUltima.
  12. Are you using the body length or the overall length including tow A frame. I have a Kuga with a Swift 580 and insure thru the C&MHC
  13. I thing that it is a Dixon Bate or Bradley commercial towbar height adjuster. Used to see them on Landrovers
