  1. I was brought up on a chalk board and abacus 😂😂😂
  2. Not an easy job, but it took me and my mechanic about 4 hours start to finish, had a couple of problems along the way, such as the old back plates coming off, once everything was of off though putting it all back together wasn't that difficult, apart from the new handbrake cables.
  3. I payed I think close to ÂŖ200 for my LUK clutch kit and bearing, could have got a cheaper one but went for one of the better brands, and a friend of mine who own a garage charged me ÂŖ250 to fit.
  4. Don't forget a 55 will have a smaller ( skinnier) side wall than a 65 (10 percent difference in tyre width/ sidewall ratio)
  5. Trust us, if you've been on here as long as we have, you'll know wilco is one of, if not the most informative people on here. He has helped out countless people on here who have either got stuck doing something, or has offered invaluable information to their cause.
  6. After reading Wilco's review on brake pads and disc's a few weeks ago, I am also converting to ceramic pads when I change my discs and pads in a few weeks time. I am converting my fronts to 300mm pagid discs and I've seen a good price on some TRW Dtec pads, I have to say though, my last set up were eicher pads and disc's from euro car parts, been on the car now for two and a half years now and have performed perfectly ok with very little brake dust.
  7. Just sound like a normal noisy diesel engine to me, but I've always had petrol engines so I'm no expert sorry.
  8. 1119281 it's saying is the gasket, but I think it comes with the thermostat as a kit
  9. Depending on the year there are two listings. 03/12/2007 to 09/01/2008 Ford finnis number 1476110 09/01/2008 to 29/07/2011 Ford finnis number 1566316. Just put "Ford" followed by the relevant number into Google search and you should see the relevant parts
  10. That's the battery I WAS going to buy but decided on the advanced one only cos it was cheaper and 2ah bigger
  11. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but when I was researching a new battery for mine, I too wanted the biggest battery I could get away with, but I'm sure I read that if it's to big the alternator has to work extra hard to get it fully charged or something like that.
  12. this this is the one I bought for my 2010 1.8 focus, it has a better cold cranking amp than the Bosch one it replaced. It was a toss up between this one and a yuassa one
  13. My boy lovvvvved this show back in the day. "Goodbuy goodbuy good friend's goodbye" brilliant 👍
  14. Have you seen some of the modellers on you tube building aircraft, these guys are pure artist, I used to make airfix models as a young lad but by God these guys are on another level
  15. Awesome 👏👏👏👏👏👏😂😂😂😂😂 it's just not only our cars that get all the attention, it about how we teach our kids, how we adults go about things, nice one Lenny The RS in the first pic is the closest thing I'm going to get to getting my dream car ☚ī¸
