    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...

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...
