Rover 827 Vitesse 5 Speed
Short footage of a MK1 Rover 827 Vitesse 5 speed, being driven by a moron!!! The owner is the guy in mid film, with the worried smile on his face! I cannot believe, that a few months later, I went on to own this car... superb bit of kit, and my 2nd Honda V6 powered Rover....
Worst tappet noise from a petrol engine ever
Worst tappet noise from a petrol engine ever. Took the car from an owner that has abandoned the car for months. Car is Rover 827 Sterling with 220,000 miles in it. Engine still impressively accelerates well. But due to it's bad worn out valves lifters makes the engine sounds terrible. Sounds even worst then a diesel.
Rover 800 ELECTRIC WINDOWS/SUNROOF BEEPING? 820 825 827 vitesse sterling coupe
This is how to stop your windows and/or sunroof from beeping on your Rover 800. I needed to do the ones on my Rover 800 (Zircon Silver Coupe No.1) after reconnecting the battery. This will usually solve the beeping (although it normally takes a few more goes!).
If the windows do still beep, then you may have to remove the door panels and use some spray grease on the cables/mechanicals! Sometimes the drivers switch pack may need resoldering, as they do suffer from dry solder joints on occassion. (as you have two switches on each window in every car, then if one does work and one does not, then it is worth resoldering the one that does not fully function).
Also some owners do seem to suggest problems occuring as a result of bad connections in the main fuse box too! So if the above stuff fails it will do you no harm to have that resoldered too!
