    Throttle body cleaning.

    Just wanted to add, I cleaned the maf at the same time (although pretty sure that didn't make much of a difference). I felt cleaning the TB made a noticeable difference to how the car ran.

    Throttle body cleaning.

    I did this a few months ago. I disconnected the battery and unplugged and removed the throttle body from the car. I then cleaned the throttle body and refitted and reconnected the battery. I then did the various pedal dance resets (throttle position reset etc). This didn't work properly the first time and I ended up getting a CEL and car going into limp mode randomly after a while of driving every time I switched the car on. I redid the throttle position reset (correctly this time) and it was all fine since then. I think my main issue after cleaning was the throttle closed position being wrong. I was obviously careful when opening the butterfly valve and only opened it slightly about twice from memory to avoid damaging it.

    roadster roof handle problem

    I have the same thing on mine, but it doesn't seem to affect anything. I also wondered the same thing, hopefully it's not a sign that it's on its way out. Anyone know anything? Is there a way to fix it?

    P2101 code and no start

    Have you tried a throttle position sensor reset? There are some guides on the forum of how you can do the various resets. I had the same code after cleaning my throttle body and the various resets fixed it. Although mines was starting fine and randomly would go into limp mode, so a slightly different issue. It could be that your throttle body is broken or damaged in some way? Have you seen the throttle body actually open when pressing the accelerator?

    @Andre D You must be one of the lucky ones! I'll have to wait until it's a bit warmer I guess

    350z roadster roof rip

    Thanks @NEroadster I've actually bought a patch and some Stormsure seal which I'm going to use as a temporary fix until I save enough to get a Mohair one, as I can only imagine it will start to rip in other places soon enough due to its age

    Spotted a 370z, too cheap?

    In the ad it says reg is Sb09zen I'd be tempted to do a hpi check before even considering going to see it. This will also tell you if the reg has been changed recently which will confirm/deny if it's the same car! I used experian autocheck when looking for my car, from memory it's 5 checks for £20 and that includes some kind of guarantee too!

    Looking at the sellers feedback, it looks a bit strange. It's all positive and fairly recent but whenever clicking on any of the pages it leads to a missing page, and to me looks like all of the sellers that the user has bought from have been deactivated. Looks like a scam in all honesty based on that alone.

    350z roadster roof rip

    Thanks @ZMANALEX I assume it can't be repaired/it's not worthwhile repairing? How long do Mohair roofs usually last?

    350z roadster roof rip

    Hi all, My roof has a fairly small rip next where the roof meets the body and passenger window (behind the passenger seat). It's gradually getting worse so I probably need to sort it before I end up with a big hole! Having a search this seems a fairly common place to rip, but I need to decide what to do in terms of getting a repair or replacing the roof. What do people recommend? I'm based in London if anyone knows any roof specialists they can recommend and an approximate cost if they've had the same issue? Also, my roof hasn't been going all the way down recently, which I assume is due to the cold weather, are other peoples roofs the same? Thanks in advance!
