Re: Having to slam estate tailgate

You could have just wound in the rubber stoppers on each corner of the tailgate, same effect just easier :roll: Just like the ones on the bonnet, has your tailgate allways been difficult to shut ? or has it had some work at the rear end, wouldn't have left the factory like that & they get losser tho...

Re: Rock hard brake pedal !!!

It was this time round for me but it can also be the servo it's self and or the vacuum pump.
I just went for this first as it's the easiest and cheapest. :)

Re: Another MOT shake up

It's always been my understanding that the MOT proved that the car was road worthy on the day of the test :? If you were pulled over after this date & the old bill felt that your car was unroadworthy then you would be given A seven day rectification notice, you had to take your car to a MOT station ...

Re: 03 estate broken roof rail

Apparently you don't have to remove the headlining, but I have no experience of this.
Tony Newman over on the Facebook page, says so.
Also a few estates being broken on there.

Re: Buzzing noise

It's easy to check the flap, pop out the pollen filter & whilst looking down the hole under the pollen filter aperture
Get a assistant to press the recirculate button you should see the flap open & close if all is well.
Obviously with the ignition on.

Re: Alignment after front spring change.

It is good practice to do a alignment check after replacing any suspension parts. You don't have too but uneven tyre wear will ensue, but you should always replace spring in pairs, so you pays your money & takes your choice :roll: . Too be fair a old worn bushes, high millage 406 will wear the tyres...
