  1. I always remove these with a small pick type tool or small flat blade screwdriver. Never really had any issues with them. Some times they do become a bit worn and loose so chucking a new one in is best. I don't understand what the issue is people have with them?
  2. as already stated by Andy there is no thread to damage. They are known as scrivets (a word that really bugs me )
  3. depending on what it screws into will dictate what type of thread it has. it is not necessarily a metric thread size such as M6 etc. often torx screw going into plastic or spire clips have a thread which resembles a woodscrew - screws are often measured in 'gauge'
  4. Take a lot of steroids as your going to need to be a monster to feed that belt on by hand lol
  5. I've never known anyone on here selling them to be honest.
  6. I would advise against it lol. Can I ask, if your car is needing a drive belt - has the timing belt ever been changed?
  7. Hahahahahaha do elaborate Ian
  8. No need to remove the headlight or grill to fit a drive belt. Remove the wheel and part of the arch lining covering the pulleys. they are stretch type belts so to remove the old one it's easiest to cut it. To fit the new one some belts do come with s fitting tool, otherwise you can buy one seperately. Otherwise you can red neck it and do it with screwdrivers if you are feeling brave and want to risk the new belt lol.
  9. £50 to fit a set of discs and pads?
  10. i use pagid discs and pads on any work i do by default unless someone states otherwise. Never had any problems with hundreds of sets fitted. I also like the coating on them which keeps the rust at bay for a while on the edges not in contact with the friction material.
  11. Consuming coolant is the clue. As for the crank bolt coming loose, did you use a new bolt? Done loads of timing belts on these engines and never had an issue with the bolt coming loose so I can only imagine it was never torqued correctly in the first place. I've never put loctite on one yet.
  12. stoney has given a link to the highway code but remember that women and cyclists have their own versions.
  13. just need to get the big gun out lol p.s i only use this for locking wheel nuts lol
