Just fitted a new regulator. Noticed all the botch ups previous people have done like not bother replacing screws and bending internal door components when they ram something where it son't go.

Also worth noting - the stop on the regulator was set for a Boxster so window doesn't drop far enough. Took me a while to fathom out.

I'll report back later what's about to go wrong with it tonight. Grin

Dammit Alex I've been jinxed by reading this thread.

Car was running perfectly until I read this thread yesterday, now the car feels a little rough and I mean a tiny bit jerkish when moving from standstill. Almost like it's thinking about pulling away before it kicks in. Car stalled for no reason, coinincidence? Maybe but I haven't stalled the car in over a year.

Coil packs and plugs changed about two and half years ago.

Thoughts?

Leaking fuel rail!!! Looks like a pig of a job.

Next time your car is on a ramp, check yours. Easily seen from underneath. Front of engine, above coil packs. My RH was visibly leaking.

Stupid question alert - where is the MAF located and how do you clean it?

Took my C4 for a spin after being away for a few weeks, smile back on my face. Soon to be wiped right off, reversing it back into the garage my 9 year old advised me of a water trail on the floor. Good spot from the boy, having dumped all the coolant out. Hopefully just a pipe to be replaced. Temp didn't rise so I figure I got a lucky escape. Will check it out in the week.
This is my first issue. 1000 miles and 3 months of ownership. Nobody said it would be easy.

Easy fix if that is the case Alex?
