Re: Tyres

Tried the garage next to work out of curiosity, plus the car needed an MOT Asked about Hankooks but they said they had difficulty getting them. Anyway, did me a deal, and for the MOT and 2x Avon ZV5 215/55/16V Xload tyres, the bill was £188, so pretty pleased with that, as on Blackcircles IIRC the ...

Re: New Renault parts

The body has 2 mounts at the top, and one at the bottom. The bolt at the bottom has fell out, putting the stress all across the top, and split it right under the 2 mounts. Was half tempted to buy some Q-Bond, and bond it back together, and see how it goes, but if it doesn't work, then i'll be there ...

Re: Tyres

I've bought part worns in the past, but since having kid(s) in the car, I've been buying new ones as a rule.
I did look on the bay at the price of some part worns, but price seemed steep relative to new ones.

Re: New Renault parts

Jasper - Nothing listed, but might be worth a phone call still :)

Lozz - was thinking with plastics going brittle over time, it would be better to get a new one for the sake of £25ish

New Renault parts

My dad's Laguna II 1.9DCi had a fuel injection fault come up on the dash and went into limp mode. Doubted I could do anything as thought it would be electronically elated. However, took a look, and the throttle body has snapped in 2. Seems one of the 3 securing screws fell out, and the stress cracke...

Re: Haynes museum, 22nd September 2013

(I may be stopping the night before at my daughter's in Hemel, Mrs Doggy hasn't decided yet). :roll: - if anyone else wants to offer, go ahea...

Re: Is Miss Pug dying?

Yeah I agree .. it will be just the gasket that's fubard. Iwouidnt worry to much.. I'd use a rag wrapped round a screw driver to soak up the oil to save it going into The pots .. I do hope you are all right, She can't die, she can't go!! A friend of mine said it would be signs of a head gasket goin...

Re: 130 car pile up in Kent today

I was taught when I was younger not to drive faster than you can see
Obviously something overlooked these days.
