The problems with intercontinental forums. Our BM's don't have half the sensors yours seem to have for weird stuff like poor fuel cap seals etc.

BTW what is so special about it? An alternator is an alternator. I bet someone has found out which other bit fits and is soldering it in for his mates and saving everyone a fortune. I was told that out here the 'cooling' is actually auto trans fluid that heats up the gearbox from cold quicker. Maybe yours run engine coolant?

I've just changed my wiper blades and now my reverse lights don't work. Should I change my fuel pump relay?
