Re: Autodoc online car parts.

I did get my refund. But, guess what...... I recently ordered some suspension arms for my T5 from another French website. When they arrived they were in, yep, an AUTODOC box! FFS :twisted: I now know this company 'hides' behind at least 4 separate websites!!! To add insult to injury, the fecking thi...

Re: T5 - Another 'not yet a classic' Bloggy.

Looking ahead now to Controle Technique time in August. I recall Marc, the tester telling me that the left headlamp only just satisfied requirements, reflector going home.

With the new ones fitted we got 11% v 12%. https://i.ibb.co/QdDRsVJ/Iveco-Brake-Pads.jpg Tatty and basically fa...

Re: Something a little different 'bloggy' & not quite classic!

The Jalopy has spent the winter resting, with a little heater on frost setting and everything drained down. Went in for French version of MOT last week, FAIL! It spat anti-freeze all over the place from the overflow pipe, which pissed off the tester :? :roll: Rear brakes uneven. Balljoints worn out,...

Re: Something a little different 'bloggy' & not quite classic!

I received a number of tyres and plumped for one called Robinsons Car and Commercial. Based in the old control tower of...

Re: Meet The Welshmobile!

.......and The Welshmobile made it back too. Not without a snag tho' :roll:

About 5 miles from home went into 'limp mode' ( Ooohh Matron!) .

Made it, next day I read the codes, misfire cyl 3.

Treated it to a fresh set of Volvo plugs and a BERU coil pack for cyl 3.

All good again now :thumbs:
