|How do I choose the correct dial kit?||Start by taking a photograph of your Kmh speedometer and bring it to the computer. Click ChooseYour Dials and select the Lockwood MPH speedo you believe to be the one you need. Next, compare your Kmh speedo with the Lockwood speedo. Then using the diagrams below as a guide, follow the steps outlined. (If you get stuck, give us a ring). Ignore the MPH scale on the Lockwood dial and concentrate only on the Kmh scale, (that's the smaller inner scale), and carry out the following three checks. 1. Check that the Kmh scale on the Lockwood speedometer, starts and finishes at exactly the same positions as the Kmh scale on your speedometer. 2. Check that the Kmh calibrations at the 3 o’ clock and 9 o’ clock position on the Lockwood speedo correspond exactly with the Km/h positions at 3 o’ clock and 9 o’ clock on your speedo. 3. Check that the Kmh calibration at the 12 o’ clock position on the Lockwood speedo is identical with the Kmh calibration at 12 o' clock on your speedo. The two clocks below are simply an example to show you how to make the comparison. conversion-info_medium.jpg Remember, you are only comparing the Km/h scale (the smaller inner scale) on the Lockwood dial. If the Kmh calibrations match yours at all of these five positions this could be the conversion dial you are looking for. We supply clear, easy to follow step by step fitting guidelines with many of our dials. Hundreds of thousands of ordinary car owners have fitted Lockwood replacement dials in their cars. If you just want to change your speedo but there isn't one available in the original colour, a dial kit from our extensive range of white or coloured 'designer' dials could be your solution. A note about Speedo converters Some importers fit a Kph to MPH 'speedo converter'. This is a tiny device, sometimes electrical other times mechanical. These convert the signal to the speedo from KpH to MPH. They may then simply put an MPH sticker over the Kp/h scale to hide it. Many who have a car fitted with a speedo converter still opt. to also have replacement clock faces fitted. Note to Vehicle Importers and Customisers. Enquiries welcomed. We are specialists. We already make dials for numerous vehicle importers and customisers. Our prices are hard to beat and we pride ourselves on the speed that we fulfill orders. All enquiries are welcomed. More and more cars are being imported into the U.K. and require the speedometers converting from Kph to MPH.||2011-12-07 11:27:08|
|How do I replace the headlight bulb and how long should it take?||Fiat Punto Grande - The rear of the haedlights are fairly easily accessible. The LH side has slightly restricted access. Normally fitted with H4 bulbs, allow around 10 minutes to fit this bulb. As always consult your owners manual first.
Ford Focus MK2 - This headlight is normally removeable to allow easier access to the back of the light. Look out for the slide up retaining clips and check your owners manual too. The job should only take a few minutes.
Vauxhall Astra MK5 - Check in the front wheel arch first as there is normally an access flap here. It can be difficult to change these bulbs if it's cold and there's limited access.
