Hi Dan, welcome to the most friendly motoring forum on the planet!

I live in greater Perth too.

Lintrex in Jandakot sells some spares.
Other than that, get your stuff from FCP euro in the states...

There are a few more, do a search on this website.

Great! thanks for that, the car has a booking with stuttgart autos for some electrical checks. I`ve been in touch with lintrex for some behr stepper motors as mine has the annoying click click of failed motors.

Quite an achieveabale job for a home DIY mechanic, but a very long and tedious job. Plenty of youtube how too videos around. You should also change all the small plastic links that go between the stepper motors and the flaps as they also break.

Thanks John!

Sorry for late reply just noticed the message :jokercolor: it was a mission thats for sure, managed to rectify the motors bar one (i think top lhs of airbox which is fresh air?). Spoke to my contact at the dealer whom mentioned a revised airbox which should fix it but $$$$!
Most things i like to have a crack with im not a qualified mechanic but have worked for prominent dealers in Perth accessory fitting so some of my knowhow comes from that :)
