Side Indicator Change!

1664 32
Really stupid question probably for my 1991 9000 CD Turb?
How do I remove my side indicators to change the globes.
(NOT the headlights or rear lights)

clearly, i'm not allowed to put the word "e l k p a r t s" in the middle c'mon mods get real it's hardly a major advertising campaign but a simple response to a question. What use is it if people ask where to get something from and people can't respond?!

Do I have to respond to all questions in future with fluff like "you can buy this part at a retailer of your choice somewhere near you"?

Apparently it's against forum rules to mention the moose-one as I found out when I joined.

Don't know the reason though.

I'm told by Simon it's a really long story! :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:

It's against the rules in "the other place" to mention PFS... again though, you don't find out until you do it and get your post deleted:roll: It's all a bit Kafka really. There's a rule that you can't mention something, but you can't be told what it is, but when you do it, you'll be told not to.

And it's against the rules on Saabnet to mention any other forums!

It all seems a little .. daft? Politics, eh!

I know we're getting way off topic here but frankly it's a bit pathetic.

There's a clear difference between spam, advertising and advice/offersand responses to questions.

When I ask about a part, I find it helpful if someone provides a link which possibly includes a picture and a price. I am so incredibly intelligent that I can work out for myself how to use Google to find other possible suppliers, perhaps one nearer so I don't incurr P&P or one cheaper even.

I just think it does get petty when there's a half rule about "no advertising" with blatant flash adverts at the top right of the forum page!

Both here and Saabscene have this issue and the one great thing about the Saab forums which was noted by a young lad that I sent a Saab link to was that he was struck at just how unlike the Ford forums he visits are. Ours are adult and rich in content, his aren't.

I would like to see the common sense adult criteria applied and petty rules removed that do little but provide opportunites for workarounds. URL masking isn't exactly difficult and just means hopping over a hurdle to provide the original intent.

Over to you mods, how about a new thread to bash this one out and explain to us mere mortals in simple terms the deal behind this without the cloak and dagger stuff? That is my challenge to you! :)

Hopefully this will end this for me but according to the T&C's

"2. Links to commercial websites are only allowed where they are in context with the relevant thread/post, furthermore the link must be a 'Third-Party' recommendation only."

There's no reason why the URL I posted should have been "modified" as it is entirely in accordance with item 2. I therefore request that the forum moderators conform with the Terms and Conditions accordingly!

:cheesy:

If you think the Ford forums are a bit silly, you should see the BMW one I used to be on!

About 4 quality technical posts and 10,000 posts of pure stupidness.

I'd ask a straight forward question (say about shimmy or something) and get images of vibrators etc!

Thank goodness this forum is inhabited by people who actually know something about their cars!!!! :cheesy:

After having a great and continuing service (also experienced by many other sabbists around the UK) with a particular independent, highly respected Saab specialist based in the West Midlands, you would normally ask for them to be included in the specialists listing on this site.

However, their entry will be deleted from the list once it is found to be "vaguely related" to moose bits... Not what you'd call an "exhaustive and unique" listing is it? Or what you'd expect from a site claiming to be "the definitive saab information resource and online community for all things Saab" is it?
