Dear fellow cozzie owners, I now have my 20B cozzie, collected from Ireland this weekend and have a few questions
This being the third Cosmo I have owned I have come to the conclusion that they all (from my experience)
1. Have warped disc brakes
2. Have suspension creaks and knocks
3. Have a rattling / vibration coming from the gear selector area under acceleration.
and 4. Have all the leather flaking off the steering wheel
So, on point 1 i\'d assume my best initial option is to have the discs skimmed and get new pads? anyone have a source for pads and Kev, have you carried out your FD brakes conversion yet?
On point 2 does anyone have any pointers as to which are the most problematic areas of the suspension and where I should look for the cause of the noises. I know the guy that had C11SMO mentioned he\'d replaced a lot of suspension parts on his.
Point 3, anyone else noticed this and found a cure?
Point 4, I guess I could get the wheel retrimmed (don\'t really wanna go non standard) the 13b cozzie needs it doing too so might get a discount! Or of course the unlikely chance of finding a good s/h one.
I also have an ABS problem, the ABS doesn\'t work and the ABS light is on almost permanently. Even when it goes out the ABS still doesn\'t work. Also when you brake, the Brake warning light flashes on. The brake fluid is not low. I no nothing about ABS so wouldn\'t know where to start! Are there some sensors that could be at fault or something?
Any info appreciated
