  1. If you do and if you feel a little bit more brave then stripping the wiper spindles is worth doing while it's all out. The original grease is likely to be long gone and will start to wear them out. You can't oil them from above due to a rubber seal. I did do a write up on here somewhere on how to do it but can't find it at the moment. It's surprising how faster they run when it's done.

    Back panel??

    Hopefully! I need to do the same for mine. I have a coupe one to repair mine with. They are narrower than a hatch by and inch or two and it doesnt have the exhaust cut out but should be possible.

    Chicago grey red piped exclusive interior

    I have a set of fronts with red piping with GTE seat badges. No idea which year car they are from. Not for sale unfortunately!

    ball & spring

    Just been out and got my tin from the garage and the closet I have is 13.42mm so a tad undersize unfortunately.

    ball & spring

    Is just a standard ball bearing? I have a tin of ball bearings I could look at if you know the size.

    Is this the part you're looking for, with the arrow pointing to it?

    Refitting front and rear screens - sealer required?

    I've got this to do mine: https://www.frost.co.uk/black-windscreen-sealer.html I brought mine from an online windscreen supplier for about a tenner for, I think, five tubes as I also used it to seal the wings back on. Good for sealing other bits as well as it's non setting.

    Manta B 1.8s Brake Conversion Front

    I have on mine, calipers from a MK3 Cavalier LXi (I was told!) and Carlton discs from an earlier one, between 84 and 86 I think they are. There is a bit of pad over hang but never had any issues with them. Had to use them twice in anger and don't think the car would still be around if the old brakes were fitted! On a 2 litre CIH lump with rear drums they do feel nicely balanced.

    A white hatch always gets a thumbs up from me
  14. I've got a bit of catching up to do! Only had seven cars in thirty years and two of them are my Manta and the car I'm driving now!
  15. The clip normally holds the clutch cable I believe.
