Re: Glopsy

Never bought a key on its own bud, I did go the the other way tho = change the complete set up : key and barrel, all door locks, ecu, blah, blah, blah,
Resulted in a greater understanding of the very best and most juiciest words of profanity, oh and knuckles that were sliced n diced to perfection.

It did mean I had a car back in use after the original key (one only) was lost. Plus, it was cheaper to go the long way than buy a Stealer Key.

Re: Glopsy

Morning all, Glopsy is booked in for an MOT on the 15th,and today I'll be giving her the once over to see if there's any obvious fails I can rectify.
One thing that has just started is a whine from the aircon pump. I'm guessing that as the system has a leak somewhere,all the gas has escaped,taking the oil with it?
Apart from that, she's running well and a 50 mile commute in her yesterday has blown a few cobwebs out for sure.
Plans for when the MOT is hopefully passed will be a full service and Id like to hire a decent carpet cleaner and smarten up the interior,but that can wait until the weather warms up.
I'm still on the lookout for a replacement however,as she has lacquer peel on most panels now and the clutch needs changing,which to rectify is uneconomic for me really.

Re: Glopsy

If the AC has no gas/oil in it the seals will dry up and it'll get to a point where it wont hold gas ever again. That can be a massive pain to sort so best to just get it filled up with gas even if you're not using it asap

Re: Glopsy

Thanks Didge. I think we've gone way beyond that point already and when I regassed her a few years ago it all fell back out within 24 hours!

Re: Glopsy

Another year, another pass 😀

One advisory for band of corrosion on inner surface of front discs,which isn't surprising, as I've hardly used her recently.

Re: Glopsy

Straight pass! Great result. The fix for the rusty discs is pretty easy too.
