    My Twingo III has a collection of switches at the bottom right of the dashboard; only one is active – Stop & Start On/Off – the others are just blanking plates. I would like to remove these blanking plates so that I can wire in after-market parking sensors and rear-facing camera. Can anyone...

    Hi, I've read a lot about EGR blanking plates. Are these really a good idea? If so why did the designers bother with EGR valves? Do they cause any ECU warnings? Do they fit all diesel EGR Valves inc the 130bhp? Ive a 2005 1.9 dci. Thanks Louis

    Just curious, does anyone know if European countries like Spain and France 'have' private number plates, as in England it's easy to spot a private plate, but whenever I go abroad and watch cars go by, all the plates just look pretty standard with the same lengths of numbers and letters, with no...

    Hi, I hope you will be able to help me. One of our vehicles has number plates stuck on instead of screws. The front is "stuck on" but the rear kept coming loose, so glue was squirted behind a few years ago to prevent it falling off. Now this plate is going onto retention we will be putting on...
