    Hello all, I was wondering if anyone here has any tips about treating a damp patch on a wall. We moved into this place about a month ago and there's a damp patch in the kitchen on a pillar between the window and the outside door.

    Have you got damp in your R230 ?

    Most of us probably have at some time even after trying to sort the seals and front drain. There is an offer on GROUPON at present for a small mains powered dehumidifer which could sit in the passenger footwell and looks the right size to go in the boot as well. It should effectively dry out...

    Damp proofing floors

    Brother in law & wife have just moved house to a 1960's chalet bungalow. They have found some damp issues & I have investigated. The concrete ground floor does not have a damp proof membrane and it seems that damp proofing was provided by the use of vinyl tiles stuck down with a bitumen based...

    Really odd, I drive this car in all conditions but yesterday I noticed the front passenger floor carpet was slightly damp. I was in heavy rain the other day, parked out in the rain but all windows and roof are completely water tight. I checked the air intake under the windwiper arm-cam and...

    Rough idle when damp

    Hi guys This just may be a characteristic of an 'old' car, but I have noticed a pattern that if it is raining/has rained my car will start like it is running on 3 cylinders. Turn it off/on and back to normal with a slight lumpy idle. Today with it being dry it starts and idle almost...
