Re: i-MiEV and Renewable Energy

Realty makes sense. I would find it even more clever to be able to recuperate the existing batteries for storage of the panels while upgrading the one in the car. Any news on that front, batteries that would have same voltage tresholds, maybe same chemistry but a higher energy density ? I am thinkin...

Re: Winterization of our C-Zero

Congrats on the setup.

Just wondering if that fairly small amount of ethanol can be hazardous in case of colision as it is in the crash zone (crossing fingers it never happens).

Can the fuel be lower down or under the car, for example below back bumper or so...

Super capacitors to replace 12V battery ?

Would you think that this module will deliver enough power for the i, including the capacity of running the pump of a Webasto parking heater ? http://www.ebay.com/itm/111373572497 Also wondering if it would need a casing to protect it from water projection if replacing the 12 V battery ? Besides lon...

Re: Update from 1 DIN to 2 DIN for Citroen C-Zero & Peugeot

You mean that the SOS button is linked to the car radio ?

I thought it had to be another module with GPS and GSM communication.

Re: Anyone has rust prevention, what kind

Aiming to keep the car for a long time I used Waxoyl below and in for panels. Usually cars treated with Waxoyl simply never rust. I say that because once I treated a fiat uno then saw it like 15 years later with not even one trace of rust !

Re: Cheap EVSE (electronics integrated on the connector)

Not tired but looks more interesting than upgrading the existing one. Wonder why they do not make it with a longer cable at least as an option.

Re: Rear seat handle has broken! Need help to fix.

Talked to dealer today.

I did not get a detailed description but apparently it is very flimsy, he was talking of a screw part that he had to weld down to reinforce it. He did it for both sides as preventive measure. He had to take the entire seat out...

Definitely a weak part of the car.

Rear seat handle has broken! Need help to fix.

Hi, We were putting the back seats down to load up into the cargo area and one of the handles that allow to fold the read seat back panels have up, namely it is still attached but swivels without any effect and the rear panel is stuck at lower than 90 degree angle and can not be moved. Of course the...

Re: LED headlights

Well, I installed Xenon 35 W and find them extremely useful. Since I have them, I mostly drive with them on all the time and less people cut the path because of the obvious visibility. Once I saw my wife drive the i on the highway while I was crossing it over a bridge and these headlights are defini...
