Hi Folks,

New member here, and new owner-to-be (pick up my new baby at the weekend).

Tiger Super 6, with a 2.0 Pinto.

Two questions I'd appreciate answers on?

Drivers seat is seized on on the runners, it won't budge - any suggestions on how to free it off?

Also, now do you get on going over speed bumps? The sump seems very low to the ground!

Cheers :-)

The runner is held on with 4 bolts through the floor of the car, look under the car and you can't miss them. It'll take >2 mins to take the seat out and you should be able to free it from there. I haven't had problems clearing speed bumps but your settings may be different. If the sump doesn't look like it's had a hard life you should be fine.

Thanks Pat, much appreciated!

Can't get to the heads at the rear of the seat back - do they just bolt from underneath?

Also, where's the safest place to jack it from with a trolley jack?

They bolt from underneath, you won't have to jack the car up to reach them. Wait until you've got the car they'll be easy to spot.

You can jack the car up from anywhere on the chassis if you need to, next to the front wheels would avoid the bodywork .

Thanks again for the advice Pat, counting down the days already :-)

Can't get over how cheap the insurance is, £190 fully comp, should've bought one years ago!

Just check that you have a shortened sump which gives extra ground clearance, if it's the original it will be very low. If it isn't shortened I would get one fitted.

''you can jack in anywhere on the chassis''

personally i'd be careful with that statement....i'd suggest best practice would be to jack under a point on the chassis where there's triangulation from above meeting the chassis....
