    They normally should have a punch hole each time they are replaced. 3 changes is limit then you need new hub.

    Not today, but I wasn't online yesterday. As on my thankyou post, we finally got the tailgate open / working like new. With only minor damage to the bridge piece. And a few bits of cosmetic tidying.

    I looked at mine out of the lounge window as it was raining and thought..."Trust you to start to leak round your sunroof you ba$tard!" :(
    Rubber seal/edge for the sunroof is on order. NOT looking forward to doing the job. :(

    Wait for dry weather - temp fix of heavyweight clear plastic sheet over the whole roof and waterproof tape along windscreen top / driprails? We've done something like that on a flat conservatory roof with old perished rubber seals before now....

    UK, dry weather.... Hmmmm. ;)
    As I don't have any under-cover storage for the old gal, I will have to rip the thing out and do temporary "tent-top" as suggested. :)

    You should not need it if you leave the height adjustment nut well alone.

    On a more positive note, the coolant level hasn't dropped a mm in the last couple of days

    Spent a couple of hours reading and weighing up the pros and cons of various battery chargers. Came down to either the CTEK CT5 or the Noco Genius 5. Leaning towards the Noco, fifty six quid from Halfrauds.

    We've had one of these for the wife's Ka (and occasional use on other things) for about 5 years now. Works brilliantly and given us no problems. Wish I could have said the same for the Optimate that screwed the Triumph battery and left me stranded...
