#476745 Inside Tyre Wear ?

Posted by soulman123 on 15 April 2015 - 09:16 PM

Those bushes have now been done, yesterday. The car handles tightly on cornering again, not vague with the worry of the feeling it's wondering. Tracking done to. Time will tell I guess.

Also passed it's mot, phew lol.

Very easy did mine recently in the middle of the key insert a small flat blade and wedge apart replace with a cr2032 battery as quick as you can.

Typing on a 7 inch tablet is just not my strong point. Apologies for the tedious read.

#253886 Passenger Dipped Bulb Blown

Posted by soulman123 on 20 April 2013 - 10:57 PM

cars these days so much monkeying about to do a simple thing lol.

Here's my guide

step 1: open bonet locate the offending bulb side. push metal hanger clip down. winch in pain as you push hard then it flys down smacking you hands up.

step 2: arms with a plaster and tears wiped away, 30 mind later. remove weathersheild. pull electrical connector off same thing happens as before one more cut and cry session. neighbor comes out ... mutter you still trying to change a bulb coupled with laughter .. well jokes on them they have a citreon xantia ... which spends its adult life in the garage muwhaha

step 3 remove a spring clip you cannot see and have no idea how it secures the bulb, just push shove till you hear ping either a filling dropped it the clip did.

step 4. neighbor back with more unhelpful comments such as if the spotty geek at halfords can do it you nut be seriously thick or one fingered. did u just drop self tapping screws near his car .. no wasn't me.

step who cares, patience goes and you start spitting at the light putting a evil curse on it. not clever as you now need to resassenvle it.

job done easy peasy at least I didn't have to remove a bumper lol

#251214 New Brake Caliper Colour :)

Posted by soulman123 on 11 April 2013 - 05:26 PM

Looks great bud. I am tempted to have a go at this. My focus is grey so might try black for a subtle difference or be brave with a lovely blue. Although I might just take the caliper off to do it. Give a it a good clean and paint. A good excuse to do it is an impending brake fluid changing kill to birds with one stone and get a nice painted caliper.
