    I think its my cheep tires i put on a few years ago, they have cracks in between the tread, but there was no mention made at the mot, i was looking at changing them but with nearly a year and a half of work they have had to wait
    the odd thing is it was a little down last night and flat as a pancake this morning.

    Had a look at my hot rear wheel and it seems to be a sticky caliper. Tomorrows challenge is to buy and fit a new one ready for a trip to Chester at 6pm :eek:

    There's not a lot in there to break unless it has the plastic washers or one of the solenoids dies.

    If you buy a cheap runaround, you know all the faults will miraculously disappear, right? Just to add to the annoyance

    Are they testable/replaceable? I'm not getting any fault codes to suggest they are broke but who knows

    Well, someone put it together so in theory yes. I've never known anyone need to though, other than that aussie guy with the plastic washers on early units. The ABS ECU is another matter ... and the connectors ... and the sensors.

    Went for a drive and the EAS standard height light was flashing and the access light was lit,headed back for home and the suspension was a bit bumpy so before I rummaged through the stores I checked the compressor and it was cold, checked the fuses,all fine pulled the main connector apart and one spade was a bit discoloured so cleaned it up,reconnected it and all sorted. Wish all faults were that easily fixed.:D
