So this GT I Drive 1.0 is fighting me, I'm pretty sure it's a 2001.
I have been reading up on how to rebuild this and found some people talking about it in 2009 and some helpful chap on another forum put up an original GT manual with pictures but...
So I picked up a Gt I Drive 1.0 the day before I went on holidays.
