    Rear fog lights on GT one not working

    I had the same issue last year. Found a broken wire in the loom inside the rubber trunking which takes the wiring between the boot lid and the car. It was a bit of a trial to sort but eventually easy to resolder and heat wrap shrink. Been absolutely fine since. Found a few helpful YouTube...

    Suspension knocking

    Got a knocking sound on my 2009 Granturismo 4.7s, seemingly coming from front driver's side when cornering quite hard left, so load on driver's side. Had all lower and upper wishbone bushes and front springs replaced last summer and only done 2K miles since. Handling still seems fine and not...

    Mot failure :-( !!

    I had similar issue on my 2009 4.7 GTS at last year's MOT, although fortunately it just scrapped through. On investigation found the passenger side handbrake shoe was totally shot, no lining left at all. Drivers side some delamination but okay. Turned out to be a pretty easy fix. Got new shoes...

    Newbie Looking at a Ghibli

    eBay and says this passed through your hands @dickygrace. Was that a while ago? Seems a little strange that now it's been purchased end 2020 and is up for sale again already.

    QPV Battery question

    Fitted exact same battery in my 2009 Granturismo 4.7s over a year ago. All fine, so far even during lower usage and lower mileage lockdown.

    Rear parking brake Granturismo - Occasional scratching sound

    Thanks all, really helpful! Probably just need to go back in and check that the adjustment is just right i.e. 'adjust each until the hub locked then back-off 5 clicks'. Not sure I was that precise with the adjustments as I clicked away. No warning lights and it seems to be holding fine on a hill...

    Rear parking brake Granturismo - Occasional scratching sound

    Thanks. Yep, did plenty of adjusting looser/tighter with the manual adjusters at the hub. Just wondering what others are referring to on another thread I've seen when they've mentioned adjusting via a scan tool.

    Rear parking brake Granturismo - Occasional scratching sound

    Yep, I found the actuator in the boot this morning and the cables running under the battery and fuse box. All was dry, so no water ingress (good news ) but couldn't see any manual adjusters at that end. Eurospares parts picture also suggests that there's no manual adjuster at that end, hence the...

    Rear parking brake Granturismo - Occasional scratching sound

    Such great tips and advice in this forum. The passenger side of my EPB only just passed at its MOT so with the pics and advice here finally got around to looking at the handbrake shoes on my 2009 Granturismo 4.7S today. One of the shoes on the passenger side was totally shot, amazed it worked at...

    Creaking drivers seat

    I've had my 2009 Granturismo 4.7S for just over a year now and have finally decided that the totally annoying creaking sound from inside the car is coming from the drivers seat. Amazing how tricky it is actually trying to pin down where the sound has been coming from. I was convinced it was from...
