    Update to parts ordered from Eurospares:
    Heat shield is not available so Iíve tried the main dealer, apparently they can get a couple, we will see.
    No sign of the other parts from Eurospares so I may have to be driving to the south of France before all the new stuff is fitted, gulp!
    Iíve also had to buy a new battery as the display shows up an ASR warning if it hasnít been plugged into the CTEK for a day or two. The research I did shows it takes a 096 battery, but not all fit.
    Originally from Halfords for £100.80 with the trade card I got a Yuasa 5000 with a 5 year warranty, pretty good I thought but it didnít fit, couldnít quite get the bar over the top, combination of the ledge being too high and or it being slightly too deep. So I got from Tanya batteries a AGM YBX 9096 for £130 delivered with a 4 year warranty, it fits perfectly and it has exactly the same current and cold crank amps as the OEM battery.
    I know people swear about the Oddessy batteries with their compact lightweight design but I couldnít figure out which one would fit the bill.
    Iíll try and get a couple of photos.
    Cheers, Giles

    The Yuasa has the same dimensions and Amp hours and Cold Crank Amp value and itís also an AGM (absorbent glass mat) battery like the Ferrari OEM battery.
    The AGM is mostly a positive thing but you do need to be careful when charging. My CTEK MXS 5.0 has an AGM charge mode, so I guess logic suggests that if you donít have that mode on your trickle charger you should do a spot of research before you charge an AGM battery?

    Thumbs up

    Everything from Eurospares has now arrived, so now just waiting on the driveshaft rubber boot heatshields from Graypaul Ferrari Birmingham.
    No time to get this done before we drive to the South of France so I'll get it booked in for when I get back.
    Hopefully some photos from France to come soon
    Cheers, Giles

    Tight fit but gated private parking at the Air B&B in Montauban is a welcome bonus!

    Could this be the most minor ever part failure? I might just rubber super glue it (Loctite 406):

    You can also see in the photo the lower buffer that fell off a few months ago, so a new one is hopefully part of my goody box from Eurospares

    Certainly easier than removing this, not sure how to remove this body mounted tethered link to the fuel cap
