Re: Leaking coolant

I'll have a look-see for dampness when I feel I'm on top of things...

Got a little work done today - not too much, though, as my brother who works in the garage and lets me borrow it (as long as he's there himself ) was on a binge yesterday, and hence didn't feel like spending too much time there...

Anyhow, a few pics today too:

First one's the knackered radiator, and the omni-potent angle grinder

Second pic's where the radiator's connected in the engine. Actually there's only three nuts holding it in place, not four as I wrote the day before yesterday. Terribly narrow space to work in, that...

Third pic's of the heater unit taken through where the speedo would have been. The green wires regulate the airflow, temperature etc. I've got some slight problems with getting the topmost one to behave; I can't get the right knob (airflow) to get to its leftmost position . The yellow cables are for the airbags and pretensioners.

Fourth pic's a bad one taken from underneath the steering wheel towards the right footwell.

Fifth is the same as above.

Re: Leaking coolant

Two more:

First is the right footwell where I had to use the angle grinder to cut the pop nails with. I've replaced them with the three screws which you see there now.

Second one is what it looked like when I left for home today. Starting to look like a car again

Btw., does anybody know why the B has two aerial cables?!?

Re: Leaking coolant

One could have been for the old analogue in car phones.

Looking better, you've not got that far to go by the looks of it

Re: Leaking coolant

Good luck, doc - you're gonna need it. Think I'll pass on the £50, though . If I'll never have to do it again, it'll be too soon.

Soon done with mine; just a few screws left on the centre console, reattaching gear knob, bleeding the coolant, reattaching the battery, watching airbags go off, and car not starting. Fingers crossed

Re: Leaking coolant

Luckily I didn't set up a cam; connected the battery and everything worked No warning lights blinking, all electric components working, and last but not least the heater's working.
