Default Look out for the Bumble B

On our way to Paul Ricard for the French F1. Heading from Penrith to Ringwood (Southampton) Thursday 30th. Then crossing from Portsmouth on Sunday night to Bilbao. Keep an eye out for us passing. You can't miss Bumble B. He's a Clubby, bright yellow with a black roof and an Irish reg. I need a favour off any Mini friends in the Southampton area. Stopped in Penrith tonight and found my o/s indicator repeater has popped out, got caught on the wheel and disappeared into hyper space. I am looking for a repeater capsule holder with two wires approx 1m long to make a fix before I cross the channel. Can anyone help?????? Bill T.

Bill, I will have one.

I take it that's it's just the small square type?

You have a PM.

Thanks for the offer Andrew but your a bit off course for us to get to you. We're booked into a campsite at Ringwood tomorrow night so need to get there at a reasonable hour to get the tent up. The repeaters I have on Bumble are off a Range Rover but I'm sure they're the standard 13mm dia bore or there abouts. I haven't been able to get a good look under the car as it is p###ing rain here tonight. If I don't get one I'm not too worried. I'll play the silly laddie and plead ignorance if stopped. Hopefully I'll be able to assess it better once we're camped

Put tape over the holes and remove the opposite one.

It's only an issue if they are fitted but don't work. If you don't have them, no issue.

The front and back will still work fine.
