Re: Winters off, summers on.

But where would you place the Axle Standz? Under the lower suspension arm, that'd be fine. I realised that where I have the jack positioned there I can jack it up high enough that the back wheel comes off the ground too, so I can change both wheels on either side with one jacking point. Also becaus...

Re: Winters off, summers on.

http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff162/DaiaRees/20170410_182551_zps81izsf5z.jpg Dai, where are you jacking the car up from underneath? I mean what part did you place the jack under? There's a cross member there with very convenient shape ideal for a trolley jack. I'm always very conscious of wher...

Re: Non opening door - MOT fail?

I'm pretty sure that both front doors need to be working but the back doors just need to be secure. Of course, if Mr Tester decides that he needs to access the rear cabin area for any reason (e.g. to check the seatbelts) and he can't open the door then he might get pissy.

Re: I never knew that (fuel filler cap guidance)

I never knowed that neither. :o 406's don't, but I see that Mr Rees's conveyance has. http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff162/DaiaRees/20140415_083029_zpsbaxx4rix.jpg Sure it's not a Volvo thing, what with their target market being experienced motorists who may be apt to forget things? Indeed lol!...

Re: So when do you all slope off for Xmas?

It is considerably less hassle, much more convenient and better paid, fixed hours with some flexibility if needed, and only 10 mins walk from home. Sounds ideal but it has it's problems (as I'm sure all jobs do). Not wishing to whinge here but it's a really weird place to work. There's poor communic...

Re: So when do you all slope off for Xmas?

So been back in work 3 and half days (early finish Fridays) and the Christmas break is already a long forgotten memory. I never manage to get any sleep on Sunday nights (although t'was Monday night this week of course). I'm generally a bit more rested after the weekend so my brain goes "you don't ne...

Re: The 'who owns a 406' survey thing; for all members

Had 2, still miss the second one. Would still love to have a coupe at some point but I fear they're getting to the age where the good ones are too expensive and the cheap ones are too far gone... :(
