Soapy oil has to be grease

I'm guessing wheel bearing?

One forum I used to use had a store based in the USA - basically, you ordered from their stock and they printed the logo on for you.

One of the items for sale was a thong*. Slightly more worrying is that is was the Sea Cadet Forums and one person bought said thong :blink:

Never did find out who it was (have my suspicions, but could never prove it lol)

*No, I wouldn't buy a FOC Thong!!

According to my Aunt (worked as an insurance broker for almost 40 years for the same firm until her redundancy recently) A female driver is considered a calming and makes the male seem more stable.

As I suspected, Kwik-Fit were speaking out their !Removed!.

Popped into a local garage after seeing that they did AC Work on the off chance they could squeeze me in.

Result?
All absolutely fine, held a vacuum and no evidence of the dye anywhere. Filled 'er up and it's taken - been asked to check it works everyday for a week, and to pop back in just to make sure. They're also going to see if they can find the coolant leak I didn't realise I had :-(
(Only small, but the mechanic noticed the whiff of coolant when he popped the bonnet and the level has definitely dropped)

Anywhoo... £54 later and I need a coat on in the car :D

Mine is setup with an ignition-live in the fuse box.

Motion detection through the windscreen is crap lol

That'll keep me quiet for a while then lol

Part of me kinda wants to have a bash. But as I have an extended warranty on the car, might call them up and see what they say

#396050 2013 Focus In Car Dash Cameras

Posted by SeanW on 10 August 2014 - 09:58 AM

Hi
Looking to fit front facing dash cam into 2013 Ford focus, anyone got idea of best one to purchase,  due to the large rear view mirror casing which comes quite a way down the windscreen and sun shade strip it restricts where it could be placed. All the ones tend to be placed behind the mirror which you cant really do due to the above.
 
Any advice would be welcome
Thanks

Have a look at the Mobius. You can get lens extensions. You can then mount the camera body away from the lens.

If I remember rightly the Ford OEM one was about £130!!

Yeouch!!

I'm going to find somewhere on Monday - my usual back street geezer (straight as they come but doesn't look or sound it lol) doesn't do it...might have to ask where he sends his customers.

On the plus side, the job doesn't look stupidly difficult to do if it is that!!
