Mark,

Before we can help you, your going to have to put everything back to standard - only then will we have a chance of helping you & even then it might be that you need to send the pod or controller or even both to be serviced.

Its beyond the scope of a forum to help in the repair of the box or pod as it requires knowledge of electronics, which to be fair you dont have - much like me :)

Right. Blank canvas. There are now no wires connected to anything.

"Malcom", the fur covered C5, runs without a control box or pod - just a few wires, a relay and a switch (plus a battery of course..)

It is a direct copy of the set up found on a couple of "new" boxed C5's that Mark (previous owner of c5alive) had bought. Must have been some of the last to leave the factory when it closed down, guess they were short of parts  :o

Although it will probably damage your battery in the long term, it might be worth considering if you're on a tight budget and just want the c5 to run  ;)

Pod
Has anyone got any clips that hold the pod to the C5?
Thanks
Mark

(I only need one!)

Also, have you got the screws for on top of the back of the C5 (behind the red light) and the little black clips on the top of that part, which the light goes on to Karl? Or anyone else? (Money waiting)
Thanks
Mark

Anyway, Karl, your pieces are here! Thanks they were great. Just fitting the chain tensioner at the moment, so just fitting them on now.
Thanks

Just a quick note Mark, you can get the side reflective strips from Karl, i did try and trim the first set i put on mine, but did'nt think the finish was not as neat as i'd liked, so i replaced them again, they might be about 2mm wider, but fit as good as you'll get.

Retro Andy.

I bought some too, you will have to trim them, but there is a convenient line to guide you.  I cut mine with the scissors and it really makes all the difference to your c5.

Self sticky too, just trim and stick.

So hows it coming on Mark ?  Have you sorted out the electronics ?
