  1. All the original door actuators still working so will check earths for a start. They look like they want to move with the arm rest switch but not enough grunt. But plenty of power if using the remote. They have never worked off the armrest switch as long as I’ve had the car but they have always made the actuators move a little.

  2. Wondering if anyone can shed some light on this for me. I have an XE ghia, central locking has never worked with the key or switches in the front armrests. I have recently had an alarm installed and now the central locking works off a remote . When you use the armrest switch the interior lights will flicker and the volt gauge will also drop. I can here a relay sort of noise somewhere in the dash but it will not operate the central locking. Have tried different switches in the armrest as i have spares? Maybe a simple fix just unsure where to look. Thanks for any help Bruce
  3. Ended up buying an XH XR6. Swapped the column shift over from a EL parts car no problems, everything just bolted up. The bench seat has been a bit of a nightmare though. The holes are in the floor for the front mounts are there but no nut on the underside. Rear mounts line up sweet. Modified the front brackets on the seat rails as the bucket seat mounts were about a bit wider. Got the mod done by and engineer for cert purposes. Came back from cert with them wanting to know if the factory mount i have the lap belts bolted to are designed to take the load of 2 belts. Buggered if I know how I'm supposed to find that out. Seat rail mod, lowering, wheel spacers, column conversion and the 20inch rims all good only being held up on this. fml.

  6. Wanting a xg ute for work but need a bench seat, column shift. Been looking for a while and they don't seem to pop up down here. Plenty of the XG XR6 utes around. Wondering how hard to convert one to column shift. I assume you would just need a wrecked one to pinch the steering column out of and the linkages.

  9. been pricing up the different options and looks like i'm just gong to have to wait to do this conversion. Got a holiday to Fiji coming up and then my wedding. Looks like i'm going to have to put up with the C4 for now. Thanks for all the info guys.
  10. So emailed Mal Wood about the cleveland and the E series 6cyl T5 and this was there response. Hi Bruce, We do not make a Bellhousing to fit your Ford V8 using the Ford 6 T5. The front shift of the bush box is not long enough. Kind Regards, Jeff @ Dellow Conversions Bugger. guess that means there bellhousings are suited to the 8cyl ones or the mustang one with the longer shaft.
  11. Thanks for for your insight guys. Found a e series one locally so will go check it out in the weekend. how do i tell the difference between the 6 and 8 input shaft lengths to make sure is a 6 cyl one and wether its a t5 or t5z.
  12. Thanks guys, sounds like to much stuffing round for me. Looking for the most straight forward option. There must be a pretty much bolt in option? There is a couple of trans places here that will put together a kit to bolt up to a Cleveland but the price is pretty steep. Which T5 am I best to look for?
  13. Looking at buying a T5z out of a AU XR8 to put behind the clevo in my XE. I see the starter is on the other side of the bellhousing is this going to be an issue or is there any other issues i should be aware of. I assume the bellhousing will bolt up to my cleveo. thought they were the same as windsors? Would apperciate any feed back, Thanks
  14. got the head rests just not the material for them. Been looking for a couple of years with no luck. Looked at getting the new stuff but doesn't match with the rest of the faded seats.
  15. Thanks the charcoal esp is mine. It's only a replica though, first show it's been in since it was finished. Got a heap more pics to put up at some stage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
