  1. All done and yes the garage had to smash the lock to pieces and it’s cost me £300 😳 i did manage to get door card off with no damage even though I couldn’t open the door but then I was defeated the annoying thing was if I had the door open then I could have done it no problem and saved myself a few quid
  2. soaked it in wd40 and can hear motor working its just not engaging maybe something has come apart or broken i was hoping there might be a secret way of getting the door open without having to butcher the door card
  3. Thanks for the reply looks like smashing the door card off it is then
  4. Ok clever people my drivers side rear door won’t open inside or out it’s just packed up ive tried pulling kicking swearing but nothing is working do i have to damage door card just to get access thanks people
  5. Mine has just failed on a broken spring I heard a noise only once now and then but car drove fine
  6. Thanks again guys The RAC man changed the plugs and put stuff round the threads etc etc he was very careful putting plugs in and tightening them he was very good even checked for anything odd before he put plugs in and said there was nothing obvious and it all looked clean and tidy
  7. Thanks guys i might just have a look at coil pack
  8. Yes it was a clean break at the base of the ceramic bit so the plug was in 2 pieces on the first plug it was the top that had broken leaving the threaded bit and ceramic case
  9. That's exactly what the RAC man said but he didn't think they were too tight ? I am hoping I've just been unlucky
  10. Hello you lot in August I had a misfire no engine light the 2nd plug along from timing belt had broken i changed all 4 and all was fine until Thursday just gone cruising along the A2 doing 70 suddenly car started to slow and engine light came on I managed to get off motorway and called RAC he plugged his machine in and code came up saying plug number 2 had a misfire it was the same plug as before and had snapped in half ???? he replaced all four plugs and all is good again he also said he has no idea why a plug would break like that and maybe I had been unlucky Has anybody got a view on this and what might have caused it to break ? Thanks for reading
  11. hello ippy they call it a silver service which includes a lot of checks oil and filter change and they only do plugs with the gold one so i was lucky the guy mentioned it misfiring cos i had no idea as it drove quite well i know they charge about £75 for labour and then the cost of plugs are £30 PHEW so im glad i did it myself
  12. Thanks for all your help people it's sorted the garage could not fit me in and gave the game away by saying it shouldn't be a problem as I never had plugs changed on last service so (ting light bulb) went to halfords got a set of Bosch plugs and I changed them it's now running sweeeeeeet one of of the old plugs just fell apart when I took it out so thanks again people I'm well chuffed
  13. garage said they can't fit me in just yet grrrr but said its got a misfire and shouldn't be too bad ?? i drove it today and it kept stalling when revs got too low
  14. It's only noticeable then yes
