Re: Pics: New '17/18 interior, 2DIN and paddles (!)

Interesting the European brochure is in English - but no sign of the IMIEV listed on the UK Mitsubishi website, though you can still buy a 2018 Citroen C-Zero and Peugeot Ion... in 2017 they registered 5 and 8 of each respectively by the looks of it... and no IMIEVs. As for the 160Km range, that's t...

CHAdeMO flap release not working

I noticed that this is now not opening via the release lever by the drivers seat (RHD) (and from other cars I have had, this tends to be due to a fault on the pin at the flap end). I am going to have to pull the inside trim off and have a look - does anyone know if there is a manual override release...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

I dont disagree with the data, but seems unlikely that two cells would weaken at the same time... though I do understand your concerns. I would want to do the cell balancing procedure and repeat this test a couple more times and keep an eye on those two cells. What "cell balancing procedure&qu...

Re: Wanted: Charging remote

I believe the charging remotes have to be coded to the vehicle, and if that is the case then that would be a dealer-only item, and from what I understand they are not cheap - in the order of $1000 (despite the fact it feels like a $30 part). In addition, that is contingent on your car having the ele...

All the clones and EU models seem to have only one... another win for keeping costs down :)


Yup, only the North American wider variant ones have 2 wipers.

Re: New owner/member

Strange thing that I need advice about is steering. It feels like front caster is wrong on wheel alignment. Steering wheel thus not self-center well on small degree turn… If you steer left for fu degrees and let go the steering wheel, it stays that way… I’m not use to that, I do not remember I ever...

Re: Riversimple and Fuel Cell Discussions

^ so, the main problem with installing wind turbines wholesale, as I understand it, is that building permission is constantly challenged by people who live in areas where these may be in sight, so the extremely slow and bureaucratic planning laws have resulted in a lot of successful challenges.
