Hi Clemo,
Thanks for the welcome. Reading through the posts I guess I've done well not to have a brake problem earlier!
I've 2 current problems:-
1) steering has suddenly become slightly stiff, particularly self centring seems to have disappeared. Car has PAS. Any clues?
2) Intermittent check engine light and slight misfire once engine warm.
Any clues?
Particularly, do you know if elan scan works on NAs?

I remember speaking to an ex-member about this who is in hiding on the Isle of Wight. It needs a different trigger code to get it talking & then it uses a different command set so I don't think it works.
