    Hello all, You will not find me very interesting. I am an ex-pat, don't own a car, and I won't even acquire one until I have returned to the UK. BUT......I am, albeit nostalgically, an admirer of Austins, Rovers and MG. I am educating myself about more of the models from these marques. Hence my...

    Hi everyone, I’ve had my TF for a few years now and it has generally been great (other than a drain on the battery that we can’t figure out, but that’s for another day). The car passed its MoT recently, but about 3 days later I started having problems with the central locking. Key fob: the...

    I helped a chum change the front pads and discs (albeit slightly used ones)on my 04tf as I have no clue. And ever since I've got this knocking that started in the R/HS, seems to have moved to L/HS across the front of the car now. It's speed related but but after my lock related. Its not uniform...

    HI, my father is stuck - he needs to know which direction the FRONT NEAR SIDE HUB NUT turns, clock or anti-clockwise on a 2003 MGTF he is helping restore. It seems the nut is on tight and he doesn't want to damage it by using too much force in the wrong direction. Can anyone help please????

    Hello guys, MG TF 1.6 116 owner. Lately I've experiencing a steering issue on my MG TF. What happens is that when I steer in one direction and then steer back to go straight, the car for a fraction of second keeps steering, it swerves. For example if I steer to the left and then steer back, for...

    I fitted a boot release mechanism to my MG TF with a nice SAAB switch fitted in the rear of the plastic console liner. Unfortunately I forgot the "measure twice, cut once" rule and fitted it too high in the rear of the box, so it slightly fouls on the upper cross strut and so does not sit...

    Well that's phase 1 complete, getting both the subframes from the front of the house to the rear. Cup of tea time now. Noticed though that they are without the front top arms. So when I ordered "subframe complete with all suspension components" I'm not sure how that could be...
