    Password Problem

    Thanks for the reply. I managed to follow a process which is supposed to cure the blank icons. It involved deleting IconCache.db but it didn't work. Have you any suggestions? I am learning as I go!

Just before this occurred, most of the desktop icons went blank. I take it the 2 issues are not related. I am on Windows 8.1...

    I traded a R129 for a R230-big mistake. The R230 proved to be a money pit at a low mileage. Would I have another R230? Not a chance.

    Central Heating Programmer

    Thank you for the replies. I forgot to say it needs to be a 2 channel one. This rules out the Danfoss. Unfortunately I cannot see any name on the programmer they have.

    Thank you for the replies. In my case I note the cost of protecting my No Claim Bonus is only £22 . It would appear paying this is worthwhile. I take the point about insurers getting you either way.

    No Claims Bonus

    I am maybe about to ask a silly question, I hope not. If you do not have Protected No Claims Bonus and there is a claim, do you automatically lose all your No Claims Bonus? I am thinking of a situation where a person has 20+ years of no claims. In other words, is protecting your no claims bonus...

    R230 Passenger Mirror Trim Leak

    Hi Welcome to the forum. I think you need to remove the triangle part to gain access to the inside of the mirror. Then examine the sealing around the mirror. I suspect that is where the water is getting in.
