    Hello Folks.

    Just bought my 1st Vogue, a 2003 TD6 in Epsom Green with Cream Interior. I really like it so far, it's very comfortable and nice to drive.

    133k on it and it seems to have been well looked after. I had to replace the rear brakes incl Calipers and when I was there I put 2 new shocks in it aswell. It's up for MOT tomorrow, so I am hoping it sails through.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, MOT at 2:30 so I hope it goes well. I'll know by 3pm at the latest if it has a clean bill of health.

    When I post the pics they are showing as a X and don't seem to be visable, even though they look fine on the preview.

    Do I need to resize them?

    Tried another to attach one, can you see it?

    Yer need to copy the Direct Link out of photobucket and put [IM*G] and [/IM*G] either side of it when posting on ere, but not includes the *. Yer also need to make sure yer account and folders int locked or hidden on photobucket.

    Strange thing is it shows up ok when editing this post but not on the forum. Eye get this problem with my pic's as my photobucket account is above the bandwidth limit so eye use imgur instead. A betterer site.

    Can you edit it for me? I tried that and it doesn't seem to work either.

    Thanks.

    Well I had to leave it in to get the Gearbox Refurbished. Everytime I got into it and selected Drive nothing would happen for about 30secs and then it was slowly move away and it was revving with very little happening. So I phoned a few places and they all told me the same thing and as I want to keep it right, I just left it in immediately and got it done.

    Hope to have it back at the weekend.

    Common for gearbox be on its way out by now with an early L322. They made the auto boxes with metal of similar consistency to cheese. Plus there is the clutch packs and TC.
    You’ll see diffference when it’s done

    Thanks.

    The thing that is annoying me is that when it eventually engaged properly, it was perfect. I drove it 100miles to the Transmission Repair Garage and it was faultless. Weird...
