Had the same problem many years ago. What happens is the wire resistance dereasing with age, so the voltage to the starter motor is less than 12V. The solution is to unplug the starter motor cable and feed it to a 12V relay with a ground to the other side of the relay coil. Next , take a +feed from the battery and plug that to one of the switch contacts of the relay and and run the other contact to the starter motor. So what happens when you start your car the relay is activated first and this sends a stronger 12Volts to the starter motor. Best of luck - Michael fron South Africa

Pull off the 3 knobs for the heat controls. You will see a screw under the center knob. Remove it. Look to see if there are any screws near the vent grilles, remove them, if they are there. The whole center fascia then pulls out towards you. Remove the 4 bolts, and the radio is out. Easy.

The 7MGE has 2 separate valve covers/gaskets with 8 screws holding each cover that will loosen over time.
Find the phillips screws holding on the covers and retighten snugly by hand do not overtighten!
Pull plug boots/wires by the boot not the wire and use paper towels or rags on a long screwdriver etc to absorb the oil from the wells.
Carefully clean plug boots with spray brake cleaner (avoid spraying anything but the boot) and let dry.
Apply 100% silicone grease to inner boot before reinstalling to allow future removal without damage.
If your engine is particularly dirty you may need to remove the covers first and clean all mating surfaces then reinstall.
