    Just paid insurance for another year, £144 for the year protected NCB and RAC cover. Oh the joy of being old

    I’ll never get a quote that cheap owing to the postcode lottery of perceived insurance risks!!!

    Glow plug removal success.

    After squirting WD40 on the glow plugs nearly every day over the past week, today was the day to see if it had worked. I ran the engine so the temperature gauge was midway, and donned the gloves to tackle the glow plugs using a long 10mm socket and t-bar. Pleased to say that all four came out a treat! :)

    No 4 came out the easiest. The other 3 needed more persuasion that I felt comfortable with, but they each slowly cracked, and I kept winding them back and forth initially to get to a point when they’d unscrew with ease.

    Next job, a compression test, and also to replace the plugs with new ones. 3 were dead anyway, (and they weren’t the same 3 that were tough to remove).

    Contrary to what many Londoners will tell you, there is a world outside the M25 :p

    I used to live a couple of miles outside the M25, but worked inside it.
    I now live and work 230 miles west of the M25, and don't miss it one bit.:D

    A less happy day for my FL today. Two tell tale noises. A knocking/clicking on full lock, particularly in reverse suggests I've not caught my split CV boot in time, and a bit of a crunching sound that is telling me my drivers door window cable is ready to let go. Ho hum.

    Are you sure you hadn't got the click and crunch CD in at the time?!? I play it all the time, masks a symphony of noises.:D

    Clicking is normally a worn CV joint, not just the boot.:(

    Window cables on my SE were a constant irritation. I did all 5 at least once while I had it, I actually did both front doors twice. :mad:

    I can help with both issues, if you fancy a trip over?

    I've also got the temperature display mirror here, waiting for you, and 4 bumper corners in the colour of yours, which are too good to tip. ;)

    Nothing, absolutely nothing. I am actually a bit worried now, because I have fixed all the known issues in my FL1 that I bought last December (drum brakes, wishbones, tie rod ends, clutch, VCU & bearings, diff mount, fuel tank cradle). It has no issues. Maybe I just drive it? ;)

    Could do, or give us the mileage and we'll predict your future failures. Don't want too much enjoyment and boredom do you!?!
