  1. Save the image to your computer. It should be ok to transfer to a profile picture from there.

  3. Welcome to the club! Enjoy your stay
  4. I have a replacement part for that. That damaged portion is usually the same colour as the rest of the bodywork, but the one I have just happens to be black. Let me know if this interests you.
  5. If you don't use EV's regularly, you might as well buy a boat anchor and be done with it.

  7. What samandbetty were saying in their post ( above ) is as follows We're new. My wife and I own a 2006 diesel four2 passion. Has almost 80,000 km. Car has a serious oil leek. Have pulled intercooler, like new, clean inside and outside. No damage, no leaks. Checked turbo, slight oil on housing. If turbo is leaking there should be oil in hoses and intercooler, both clean. Oil leak is center of car near oil pan. Checked most obvious places can't seem to find leak. BTW, As Betty turned into driveway car left an oil streak about 15 ft long. Must be accumulation somewhere. Can anyone help. To address the "streak" of oil, check your oil level to make sure it hasn't been over-filled. The diesel smart takes 2.7 liters of oil when drained. NO MORE
  8. The small type issue was addressed in the other post by samandbetty
  9. Welcome to the club! .......... One suggestion to make your posts more readable ....... Make sure that you don't accidentally click on the "Source" button at the top of the area where you compose your posts. It makes things so small, it is almost impossible to read. Again,
  10. You could try PMing Willys. He is in the Peferlaw area and might have access to something that could help. He seems to be capable of most repairs. It can't hurt to give him a try.

    Hi Mia and to the club. Although we have members on every continent in the world, we are primarily based in Canada. Wild! suggested checking with sites located locally (for you) which I think will be more productive in your search for a good mechanic in your area. Of course you are more than welcome to drop in and visit with everyone here. Again, Welcome.
  13. Lucky people who live in BC near a swimming hole. I hope all our members out there are surviving well with the record-breaking temperatures of the past couple of days. Stay cool folks.
  14. That's odd. Usually, when the countdown is showing one 'blob' and then that disappears, a countdown should start, showing 5.0 L then 4.5, then 4.0 and so on down to zero. I am NOT a mechanic so I can't answer your question, but the countdown should be there. Perhaps our Guru's on this site can help. According to the Operator's manual, the fuel tank is 22 liters of which 5 liters is reserve, so in theory, the countdown 'should' start with 17 liters used up.
  15. Happy Birthday "Uncle Glenn" ! Always young at heart
