  1. Speeding

    tell your mate to say he's a footballer and a fine/ban would cause him untold hardship, then he'd get off a bit more leniently !
  2. Tank Millage

    When I said 'normal' I mean everyday driving, not playing at being Sebastian Vettel at every set of traffic lights or junction ;)
  3. Advertising fails...

    Looks like it's been abandoned!
  4. Top Engine Mount

    I think there's a bit on the site (or a number) to contact them for prices if you can't see the item your after Tom, I've bought wheels from them for two Fiestas and phoning them, they were quite good.
  5. Tank Millage

    Depends how you drive it, we all 'think' we drive 'normal' but in reality we don't, so if your the 'gung ho' foot to the floor, boot it away from the lights (I've got to go fast) type then 304 miles 'might' be a decent mileage for your type of driving. Also, short journeys will drag the mpg down!

  8. I edited the post to say your battery shows 08/03 at the right hand side.
  9. Your battery shows 08/03 at the right hand side! The age of a car battery is always stamped on a label which is normally located on the side of the battery. This label indicates when the battery was shipped from the manufacturer. Important battery information starts with 2 characters: Letter - indicates which month the car battery was manufactured in (Example: A is January, B is February, C is March, etc) Digit - indicates the year in which the battery was manufactured (Example: 9 for 1999, 0 for 2000, 1 for 2001, etc) For example an automotive battery date code that starts with "B1" would be February, 2001.

  10. Things I Don't Like

    When you do the 'donkey' work for lazy folk and they're too lazy to even thank you for it !

  13. ABS pump - replacement

    Have you thought about a rebuild on your own pump? :-
  14. Ok I saw that but didn't check it out! You learn something new every day ;)
  15. Could be a tube to let water out from under the scuttle so it runs down the bulkhead? Must have a look at mine to see. ( I had a rubber tube on the bulkhead of a Vauxhall I had so if it's the same I'd suggest making sure it's kept clear as it was common for it to 'sludge up' and when it rained, the water would find its way into the cabin! ) update: checked ours but can't see anything.....
