The other day, I took care of a little task long overdue on the 146.gif , in that I swapped the front wheels to the back.

I must have had a couple of years out of the front tyres, and the NS recently became quite worn on the inside (as detailed in another thread). So it seemed like a good time to do it before the winter.

During the process I noticed some curious things taking place in my arches. My NS rear arch has a rubber-wear mark high at the back, where the tyre is obviously catching the wheel-arch liner. Fascinating. These things (liners) go in, with a bit of 'fit' of course, but it makes me wonder if this one is significantly misaligned. I couldn't say I've ever heard it; as a noise within the car.

and in my OS front arch; I noticed a sort of 'oily' deposit coming down from the suspension tower. I'll have to have a think about that one!
