Thanks Steve,
I think i know where to find it. Task for the weekend.
It did still have the rubber sponges under the bonnet, they are drying out in the garage....wont put them back.

Sunroof doesnt leak (not going to risk opening it till summer) and car has no aircon.

Ive used rain x anti fog & thats helped the front screen and side windows stay clear,mhaving the heater on full makes it much worse so had to freeze! Hence ive parked it till I sort it out (having 5 cars does help)

Cheers
Chris

Did this yesterday (Wednesday):

New cambelt, balance belt, tensioners and idler, waterpump, *cam sensor, change to longlife antifreeze, oil and filter change and a few jubilee clips here and there. (Phew!)

Also, looked at the airbag unit briefly but I haven't sorted the problem yet. That will be next week when I can be arsed.


* I was going to try and re-build the cam sensor using the part suggested by GE, in the end to avoid having the car off the road for any length of time, I bought a genuine one from Panterra_Steve! I have kept the old one though, so I will see if I can find a cheaper repair/replacement part!


--------------------
Keep left unless overtaking - Use mirrors and signals when changing lanes - Keep within the white lines - Don't tailgate

Its not exactly f**king rocket science is it?


If you cut a horse in half, then bang the two halves together, you get exactly the same noise as someone riding a coconut!

Finally got round to fixing the stuck flap and fitting replacement rear light at the weekend. So today drove her to work and was able to see out the whole way there...and back!

Thanks to Steve for the guidance, I'd never have worked that one out.

Next... Lsd beckons once I get freebie back. smile.gif

Finally fitted the original lights after running into many problems due to previous Butchers making bodge jobs.

Changed all the trim on the back of the tail gate due to previous cockwombles ripping off the trim instead of taking screws and bolts out.

Sorted out the front pipe. Car now sounds sweet. It don't sound like a tractor no more. Changed my wheels over to 17'' Mito wheels. Stuck the 145 badge back on as the car had been de-badged.

Tomorrow, door cards for the leather trim going in and hopefully changing bulbs behind the dash.

Received a nice big box containing enough rear lights to replace the ones glued together on both cars, and a spare set for when they break again...and two tailgate struts to stop it crashing on my head!

I was going to take some today but she's filthy from the motorway. I'll get some up in the next few days. Still got a few jobs left. It's pretty much all cosmetic now though. Just a little dent here and there and a big scratch on my bonnet.

Looks great - cheers Adam! coolio.gif

Drove the car properly for the first time with new drop links and arms and it is fantastic - except for the scything sound I now get on left turns that is either sticking pads or a wheel bearing! More work to do I guess.

I replaced both...I did check the dust shield but Ive done it again today and spotted the part at the bottomm near the ball joint is as good as touching....probably from when I used the splitter getting the original arm off. Now fixed (I hope!) smile.gif
