Re: GP Sporting

Just had to take the car back to the garage today had both wheel bearings changed and one side is making a cracking sound at low speed everything else seems tight and as it should be, just hope it's nothing expensive!!

Re: GP Sporting

Just got the car back from the garage tonight and he found that a bolt that holds the calliper to the arm which holds the bearing must not have been tight enough and had fell out so the calliper was hitting the alloy wheel

All good now so I won't be using that garage (different one to that fixed it) again for anything!!

Re: GP Sporting

Update:-

Got the bulbs changed from behind the heater controls finally don't know how long they have been out for because I can never remember them working

Look good know though took about half an hour to do in the end worth it though and cost about 3

Before:


After:


Just ordered a new boot lock as the boot light has stopped working and when you pop the boot the car isn't sensing that it is open.
Hopefully should be too much of a job

You did it the hard way then! You can change them from behind by removing the small trim in the footwell.

I knew you could do it that way, but when it was pissing it down raining all day and I would need to lay outside the car door to do it I decided to stay dry
