I refuse to comment on the grounds that it may incriminate me...

In Topic: Now The Hot Weather Is Finally Here

30 June 2015 - 06:24 PM

I couldn't believe it when I went out for my break at work this morning and almost passed out with the heat.  Needless to say tomorrow I'll be digging out a short-sleeved shirt if possible, as well as taking a hay fever tablet.


As regards dogs in hot cars, I will never understand that.  It is the same with any animal including cats that may be being transported to and from the vets.  People (or most people) take it into consideration with humans but seem to think that animals can cope with being cooped up in a car with no air circulation.  Why?!

In Topic: Bonit Is Not Opening At All, Cant Hear Latch Either?

I had a quote for like 70 quid where I am which isnt bad. I think I'm going to get the cambelt done so will probably chuck it in at same time in next week or so. Let's hope I don't need to top up oil before that

That was my problem actually!!  Our Focus has quite a bad oil leak so it was fairly worrying when the bonnet couldn't be opened and thus the oil not checked/topped up.


As long as your car isn't leaking oil though, it should be fine as I've never known a Ford to burn more than 500ml every 1,000 miles.

The same happened to our 2000 model a few weeks ago and after trying to drill it out (and failing miserably) we put it in the garage for the work and it came to £130 all inclusive (inc. new used lock).


Too bad it failed the MOT a few days after!!  That's my own fault though, I was being too optimistic.

In Topic: How Old Is Your Car In People Years?

Apparently the the Volvo is 66 years old and the Fiesta is 45.  The Focus is 93.5 years old, and it is definitely showing its "age".
