Is there any chance of the email I've requested please, as none has been sent


Normally when the cables breaks on these is always due to corrosion on the cables it self..i wouldnt say its due to replacing those seals in my opinion..the cables are exposed on the regulator itself, so any condensation/moisture over a long period of time eventually causes the cables to corrode and then eventually break when enough strain is put on them...
