My 401 is jumping out of third gear. The mechanic is having trouble fixing it. Any advice? (…apart from a different mechanic…)
Might be some interest in this blog. If not – at least some nice photographs of Bristols!
Members who have not already seen this auction listing may perhaps be mildly interested to see this.car:
In my opinion, the car is absolutely gorgeous and is a Bristol engined garage partner for my 403 that I would love to own. Further photographs and some more information are at:
We have heard the sad news that Peter Derby’s immaculate 407 has been stolen. Please find below details of the car from Peter.
Reg No GSU 556
Colour Silver (Mercedes Brilliant Silver 744)
Light Blue leather
Rear end of the car replaced with a 408 rear end
Salvage Squad TV programme car.
Modern sound system installed driven from a period Blaupunkt Bremen radio.
As a warning to others, the car was taken on Saturday morning from a locked garage while I was walking my 2 year old granddaughter down to Folkestone beach. This seems to indicate that someone was watching my movements. This is a really low crime area. No car keys were taken. The rods holding a substantial wooden door were broken out of their mounts leaving the lock on but the door open. Do not think it will not happen to you!
Any news to email@example.com please.
I have thought that there was no specific wiring diagram for the 411 in club circulation and have had to make do with the 410 version.
However, by accident I came across the 411 wiring diagram which is appended to the 411 owners manual that can be found here. Alternately you can find the 411 owners manual via the menu system of the website under “literature”. Of course you do need to be a BODA member to see this otherwise hidden content.
I hope other members find this useful.
Nice article in the London Evening Standard today.
