  1. Replace the dmf too, that'll make your parts cost look a whole lot worse lol. some clutch kits come with grease, some don't but personally I don't bother. Too many people put far too much on too.
  2. The last 10 clutches I've fitted I haven't greased the input shaft with anything, just something else for the dust to stick to lol
  3. It officially ended on the 20th of November but as per all ECP codes they last for ages lol
  4. weekend30 if you want 30% off lol
  5. Have you been advised on the mot certificate regarding the discs or just in person? Hello from a fellow biker btw
  6. Yup it's been coming for a while, ultimately going to cost motorist more money. Won't be long until petrol cars get hit with something, there must be money to be made there too.
  7. An interesting read for any of you with a gutted dpf or thinking about it. At the moment as long as the dpf isn't missing then it will pass, regardless of what is or isn't inside as the mot tester cannot see inside. http://garagewire.co.uk/news/mot-changes-to-be-introduced-in-may-following-dpf-investigation/
  8. Ah so it's the main rear seal. Not so sure it's an engine out job though. Personally I'm not a believer of any oil additives, once a seal is worn it's worn.
  9. replace the dampers with springs.. Hmm lol
  10. Is it not rivnuts fitted to the boot lid? Same as my mondeo. I've used plastic screws on mine.
  11. It could be a diy job if you have the tools and the time. You will need to remove the timing belt to get access to it.
  12. Should that say 63 plate lol. sounds like it's misfiring, worth a look around the plugs and coils, especially if they have washed the engine bay or anything like that. If this is the problem then worst case they'll need replaced if faulty.
  13. You can't miss the pipes from the aircon pump so don't sweat it. It's not a complicated job.
  14. I've just chucked a working alternator from a 1.8tdci in my scrap pile lol. Its just one belt that you can lock the tensioner in the off position with a pin. It's a little bit of a fiddle but by all means a little savvy, basic tools and patience it's doable by anyone you'll notice the alternator sits in a bit and there is a shaft connecting it to the pulley which is driven from the belt. Dropping the aircon pump but not disconnecting the pipes is required.
  15. To earn the reputation as a good mechanic you need to be good with everything and everyone, not just what he fancies doing or feels like.
