Re: Glopsy

Just returned from a week in Yorkshire with Glopsy and she didn't let us down. She's definitely running smoother following her recent long hauls and with the top box fitted she carried all of my families stuff with ease.She also hit the 100k milestone as we passed by Nottingham on the soaking wet M1.
Looking back, it was our trips to Devon and Yorkshire back in 2015 that saw me purchase Glopsy, with the plan to retire her when we returned.It's Funny how these funny cars become part of the family !

Re: Glopsy

Had a rare day off to myself today so set about a bit of remedial work on Glopsy. First up was to replace the o/s/f drop link to try and cure at least one of the annoying rattles. Had to get the grinder out to get the bottom nut off but the new link is now on and secure. Next up was an oil/oil filter and air filter change. No dramas, Fram air filter, Borg and Beck oil filter and some Q4 oil. Coffee 'o' clock now I reckon before a test run to see if I can notice any difference !

Re: Glopsy

Congratulations on the Pass!
Is the advisory on the n/s drop link or something else with the ARB?

Re: Glopsy

Thanks,pretty happy with the result. The advisory is for a drop link, which was replaced less than 10k ago but I guess they're classed as regular consumables now. I had just replaced the o/s one for the mot as it was obviously knocking but will sort the n/s one next week.

Re: Glopsy

Get a pair of Meyle HD drop links. They're much, much better quality than anything else I've found. Almost fit-and-forget. They come with a four year warranty.

Re: Glopsy

Cheers WMF, I'll see who stocks them. The last ones I fitted were from ECP and apparently made from cheese !

Re: Glopsy

Best price I could find, from a quick google:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/216-060-0...MAAOSww5hZGVSK

Make sure you get the HD (heavy duty) type. Meyle also produce a standard duty version for some models.
