Re: BX Engine noise?

Sounds like the hydraulic pump and is perfectly normal.

That's me making the fairly modest assumption you're not accustomed to BX's!

Whilst your post here is very welcome, you will also find help at bxclub.co.uk which covers all models of the BX.

Re: Sick of this F**king leaking 16v!!!!

If you're certain it's not the sunroof and it appears to be coming from the dashboard area, I'm afraid the prognosis isn't good. Remove the washer bottles from the scuttle and inspect what will (no doubt) be large rusted holes or seams. It's a brave man that welds these up with the dash and soundpro...

Re: Phase 2 BX16V Black - Barn Find

Does anyone else think the new £5 notes may actually be Monopoly money? Dunno, but they really are ridiculous. What an utter waste of our money, thought the country was supposed to be trying to reduce the deficit. I bet some MP's somewhere have got a nice back-hander deal with De la Rue for that bo...

Re: 10 year forum board anniversary plus the old board

Wasn't aware of that! I *think* my DD for bxp subs is still active... :roll:

I thought getting rid of my valver would be a wrench, but it's really just been a massive relief. Life has just changed over the past 10 years and the valver doesn't fit anymore.

Re: 10 year forum board anniversary plus the old board

usually managing to offend/upset someone in the process. That used to all be part of the fun, but nowadays people "troll" because they've pointless lives and no friends. Facebook has all but destroyed forums, but i suppose the main reason for the fall of one's like this (other than the obvious lack...

Re: Phase 2 BX16V Black - Barn Find

Where the hell does this reprobate get that there's only 26 valvers left? Thank god he's not keeping it, last thing that's needed is another raging moron. Don't feed the troll indeed! Ps. Rarity doesn't mean somethings valuable. After all, there's only one of you - and you're a worthless mong. (Imho)

Re: Couple of 16v bits needed

These are the ones I have, any good?

They'll need a run over with febreeze/vanish to spruce them up.

Re: BX 16v

I'd suggest a "tidy" example, Ready to use with a full MOT and a few minor niggles: £1200-£1500 An "excellent" car, well tickled by an enthusiast with no issues and ready to go: £1800+ But, getting the colour, PH, location and condition you personally want will have a much greater bearing on the pri...

Might be able to help with the headrests as I've a pair I've no use for (my car has no interior) but you'll have to remind me which fabric Monza is!

Re: White Phase 2 16 valve breaking.

I can probably collect them at the end of august on my way past if you're going to Anglesey Vanny. If it helps?
