Lots of choice, some prices look cheaper than those quoted here.

These people were well recommended in the Mazda Bongo campervan community I used to be part of.

Hi.

Another one for cruise control..

Took the van in for its MOT, the cruise control was definitely working when it went in to the garage and definitely not working when it came out.. Coincidence?.
The garage folk said we could not open the bonnet but they have resolved the problem and it's now Ok....

Rang Conrad Anderson in Brum to see if there was anything I could do as we were going to Ireland, I did what they suggested but it still would not work, so I ended up actually driving the bloody van, I forgot what it was like to hold a steady speed and was all over the place trying to hold 62 mph..

So rang Conrad Anderson again when we got back and arranged to take the van down to Brum last Friday.. The fitter started eliminating all the things that could go wrong with the cruise control until he found out what was wrong... A broken wire which had been snapped by someone riving at the bonnet release button on the dash..

Hmmm.. .. Cost 52 for the repair plus half a tank of deisel and a day lost...

Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.

I think he's up to something. . .. . . ray......

pedal ache

Hi,

I have a 94 LMC which has the same problem. Until I found a small "footstool" two inches high, which I put my right foot on and it solved the problem.

The previous owner had obviously made it and I found it behind the front seat.

So get yourself a 2" thick bit of wood and try it.

That's absolutely ridiculous.. You should have a pair of these ..

apart from the expence of the cruise control, which is a waste of time in town and slow moving traffic, bigfoot has given you the answer and I agree with him, that is why I asked for a photo of your pedals to check to see which type would be needed, so that we may be able to source it for you.
the pain you are getting is due to the angle of your foot and ankle and not being able to rest the foot in any way.seat adjustment will not help.

Re: pedal ache

That really is worth a try seems to make a lot of sense, ergo, the problem is as you say, the angle of the right foot / upper arch stretch. Sometimes a simple solution turns out to be the best.

PS. I tried it, a flat 2" high plywood platform, it works for me.

Thanks for all your informative replies......Geoff123
