    So I took the car for a test drive last night after fitting new HT leads, plugs and air filter and I was really chuffed with the results...brilliant...

    While I was messing around in the car doing all this, I saw that a little black plug under the rear seat (passenger side) was disconnected so I plugged it back in to see what would happen. No new buttons worked so I was left wondering what it was for...

    So...driving along on the test drive and BANG!!! The rear headrests came down...it scared the crap out of me esp as I was test driving it. Lol!! My heart jumped out of my chest, I thought I'd run over something for second.

    Quite funny though and my reasr headrests work...woo!

    Well, not quite...it makes me wonder why it was disconnected though? If i put the headrests up and then press the button, they don't work for ages and ages - then go down. I suppose it must be a leak in the vacum thingy?

    Anyway - heart rate back to normal now- I might just disconnect it again and leave it...

    Ha Ha Ha !! :D

    Probably just come loose , you are meant to be able to put the rear headrests down for reverse parking with the switch on the dash . Only problem is , you have to climb in the back and lift them back up manually !

    Think the vacuum pump is under the rear seats - if you look on the ruski site there are diagrams so you can check how it should be.

    I always drive around with mine down unless there is a passenger in the back (quite often at the mo as Mrs B rides in the back with Junior B) then they pull the head rests up.

    Are you still after a bonnet - there's a pre facelift car being broken on 'the other site' at the mo.

    I can remember watching VBH driving an SL on 5th gear...went so fast around a bend the car thought it was going to flip and popped out the rear headrest protectors ...the look on her face...priceless...

    If you need a vac pump let me know I'm pretty sure I have a spare in the garage. :)
