    Very hot yesterday in Sydney with temp reaching 46c. Like many Sydney folks we headed for the nearest shopping centre. Problem about 500mtrs from the house is bushland with tall gum trees and the ground under growth is heavily build up. The biggest concern are idiots with matches and smoking...

    Window Switch - 4200

    Where can I purchase a new window lifter switch (driver side)? One of the little pins on either side of the rocker has broken. Looking on Eurospares I could not find the individual switches only the "Complete Dashboard Switch Panel" part No. 208042 Gary

    Front seat lever issue

    Excellent write up for the seatback. Martijn. On the 4200 there are 2 wiring loom connectors going to the seat. I think the 3200 has a single connector where pin 27 is available for the micro switch. A while ago I did perform the recommended seat reset routine but this did not help. When I...

    Front seat lever issue

    Martijn, Just to clarify my issue, the seat lever goes down OK but as I tilt the "seat back" forward the seat does not move automatically forward. If I move the "seat back" back and forth a few times then it works. I just popped into the garage 2 minutes ago and this time it worked first time...

    Front seat lever issue

    Martijm, Much appreciated with your research on this. I feel I will need to take the seat apart but I need to put this on the back burning until I have a bit more time. Wife has been away so been busy rendering / drilling holes in the ceiling for new lights with dust & mess everywhere -...

    Front seat lever issue

    Martijm, The seat operates fine via the controls. Can you expand on your reference to the pivoting point hinge. Gary

    Front seat lever issue

    Help needed on the Gransport, On occasions the seat lever does not operate when I tilt the driver seat back section forward. I removed the seat from the car but I could not find where the tilt lever connects to under the seat, I was hoping to find a micro switch. I really wanted to avoid...

    Gransport Replacing Air conditioning compressor

    Replacing the air conditioning compressor took me under 5 hrs which did include breakfast. Replacing the compressor does not require the removal of the exhaust manifold or the radiator fan assembly either. This is what I did. 1. The day before, I got a mobile car air conditioning mechanic...

    Battery going flat

    All. Thought I should share the conclusion of the flat battery. I originally suspected it was the window control unit. So I took the car to Maserati specialist garage they said they would swap it over with another control unit. As it turned out it was not the control unit but the driver side...

    Wheel alignment - Gransport

    Bruce, Thanks for the Canberra contact, I found a company that maybe ok in Sydney and the good news it's about 20 mins from home. I plan on going there maybe this weekend to talk to them first. I will let you know how I go. PS It was a good day at the Vaucluse House. Gary

    A/C leak Gransport

    I would get a second opinion. I have not personally had any dealings with this company on the Gold Coast but I did speak to them a few weeks ago while I was on the Gold Coast and I was comfortable with their Maserati skill set. Pretty sure my brother used them...
