Re: My new 406 project #2

Hey, that looks rather splendid :mrgreen:

Sat nav screen - don't you have to give it some cooling fans to stop it overheating and going all streaky?
Air con - might just be running low on gas?
Rear wiper - broken wire where it goes from the roof to the tailgate? :(

Re: and today i have mostly been...

And this evening I shall be basking in the absolute silence of the Croatian football team's defeat at the World Corruption Final. Woo. Seriously, all afternoon the apes have been getting louder, awful music, fireworks, air raid sirens, fire engine sirens, car horns, drunken bellowing, reaching a cre...

I was going to add there was no way of telling if the reservoir had been recently topped up due to massive leak, but then I realised the tester would probably notice that...

Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

They have some sort of gadget for testing brake fluid here, there's a probe that gets stuffed into the reservoir and I always wonder what sort of crud it's been in before :frown: "No brake fluid? No problem! Pig's piss does the job just fine!" They also have plates in the floor they park the wheels ...

Re: Egr and servo solenoids XUD9TE

Hi there :cheesy: Service Box is finally back up and I've had a look for that solenoid: https://i.imgur.com/IVvS4Kx.jpg Looks right to me, 2 oil(?) pipes, electrical connection, 2 rubber mountings, bracket. I can't make anything of the second picture, it appears to be mostly your arm. At least, I ho...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Just a by-the-by, bumped into Pedro, my old D9's new owner earlier, still going strong after a few teething troubles with the HP pump (lack of use + crap diesel here) and since then he's added another 30,000lm to it. Still loves it but thinking about replacing it with a 508 next year.

As you were.

Maybe worth a read? http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/64350/best-leather-cleaners-2018 As for smoke, you can clean the headlining in situ (don't try taking it out, you'll ...

Right click on the picture, hit "copy image location", come here, hit the image tags in the row above the text box (looks like a rectangle with a gorilla holding a balloon in it) and paste your link between the two lots of square brackets. https://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzY4WDEwMjQ=/z/lg0AAOSwsh5bNkCC/$...

What, you mean there's another way of doing it? :supafrisk:

I've also been watching a house being built on the way to Max's, at one point I saw all 5 roofers standing in a circle on the ridge having a chat. All it needed was a bar and a glass in each hand...
