    Hi, The 'battery' warning light on my R reg '97 Rover 114SLi came on recently. Testing it with a multimeter, it turned out the alternator wasn't charging the battery at all. So, I'm about to go about replacing the alternator (and belt and voltage regulator while I'm at it). My first question...

    I've located what has been draining my battery. Recently my battery has been dying after not driving it for a couple of days. I connected a multimeter to battery and narrowed the fault down to the number 3 fuse inside the car which is for interior electrics such as radio and lights. I...

    Hi all, My 45 1.6, used to start on the button, 1-2 seconds of holding the key and away it goes smooth as silk, no hesitation, no lumps no funny noises, faultless. But as of this thursday, it takes a good 5-10, sometimes up to 15 seconds of turning over to cut in, and sort of wobbles its way...
