  1. My thoughts shadow Ian's comments on this one. I don't know your personal situation or financial circumstances and neither am I about to question it but I personally find it absolutely mad that anyone would go through with the sale of a diesel car knowing fine well it's been misfuelled. The worst has yet to come from this problem. I wish you the best of luck dealing with it in the future and actually proving who is at fault as they will wash their hands of it and blame something else.
  2. Just another day in Scotland really ive been outside in the snow fixing an Audi A2. Fitting new brake hoses, Spring and CV joint. All good fun.
  3. You can get clamp on flexis but you need enough straight pipe either side in order to fit it. As for the backplate, either ford or see if a local factors can get pattern ones.
  4. He didn't say what it was a pint of
  5. I haven't had much dealings with Vetech, or GSF in general but I have fitted one Vetech wheel bearing in the past on a VW without issue and its still going fine some 50-60k miles on.
  6. I tend to stick the with big brands such as SKF, F A G, but i have been using alot of Moog for bearings, track rod ends and ball joints - so far no issues with them. My local factors deal mostly with Moog so easy to come by. If you are looking for SKF branded stuff, I'd phone round a few local factors and see if they stock or can get hold of them.
  7. The funny thing is I've yet to see them secure a ladder on a 'no-fines' type house with external insulation lol.
  8. I stand corrected, its desulphation I was thinking off - just had a flick through the manual. I knew both of my chargers had the option but then realised it cant be recondition as the smaller MXS0.7 doesnt have recondition.
  9. part of the cycle on the charger does include reconditioning but unless you monitor it you won't know how long its spent doing it.
  10. Have you ever tried just replacing the rubber gaiter.. It's usually a nightmare! Lol.
  11. I've seen much worse than that pass an mot lol
  12. Are you fitting new injectors because the light has come on?
  13. I've reused many a stretch belt without issue - let's be honest it has to be stretched to fit for the first time so can't see that it's doing any damage if you are using the correct tools. Even without the correct tools I've done it without damage befor using only screwdrivers lol. There a quite a few tool manufacturers who make the tools for different stretch belts, if they were not re usable there would be no market for the tools. Yes I'd recommend replacing the belt when you do the timing belt but there are times when doing other work the old belt will be reused. No big deal.
  14. Your car should be chain driven, therefor just the auxiliary belt to change. I personally stick to pagid discs and pads for my car and every other car I do unless stated otherwise.
  15. I was betting on it being the 1.8 petrol but some info would be handy lol
