How's This For A Hole In The Exhaust

08 August 2014 - 06:22 PM

Hi all,

I changed an exhaust today on a 2002 VW Polo, it was bought last week to be done for it's mot. I got a phone call a couple of days ago to say the exhaust was very loud and now blowing badly so could I possibly change it ASAP.

Anyway to cut a long story short, here's the old one. The front section has been replaced before by someone and appears to be of an unknown make but look at the hole in it!

And yes I did get absolutely soaked fitting this exhaust :lol:

Recommend Me A Phone Holder

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend me a windscreen phone holder for my iPhone 5s? Looking for something relatively cheap but well made.
I have seen a few on amazon that look ok.


Well There's Your Problem!

Well after a long weekend fixing a VW polo I swore never to touch again.. It's back on the road again.
Friday night I started it and ended up absolutely soaking right through including my boxers!! Dedication!
Saturday I intended to fit the timing tools and set up the timing chain etc.. Except the timing tools didn't fit! So my plan of refitting the timing cover, cam cover and sump to allow them to dry overnight failed. I had to go home and modify the locking tools.

Misfiring and running poor, first thought it may have been an ignition coil, all fine and working. I moved onto the injectors which after some messing about seemed to be ok too.

So next step was a compression test as I suspected a burnt valve.. And here is the result..

So Who's Got A Pcc In Their Area?

Well there have been a number of these spotted in my area recently.. Police Cardboard Constables!

So far I haven't seen any with body parts drawn on them but rumour has it that one was disappearing in the back of a van last night. I might need to get the paint marker out :lol:

What will they think of next.
