AndrewT, worst job is getting the fiddly wee bolts out that hold the motor in under the dash. To do it you also will need to undo the wiper wheel boxes as the motor is well tucked up below the screen. Once it out its a handy enough job on the bench to dismantle it all and clean up and refresh the gr...
Thanks! I wasn't expecting that photo to work as I've been having issues loading them lately. Stevey showed me a different way to reduce them and seems to work! So purchased unseen last week, though viewed by a friend Geoffrey and delivered by him on Tuesday. Has since had all the seats pulled out a...
Sometimes the old grease in the wiper motor can become hard with age and slow up your wipers. Its not a huge job to open this up and clean out the old stuff, Ive seen it become like old brown icing!! With the wiper arms off the rack can also be pulled out and cleaned and re greased. It made a huge d...

I had another new one and it had some sort of oily stuff on these contacts, again once clened it starte...

I was hit in in the black minor in stationery traffic years ago by a brand new mondeo estate. The noise it made was incredible. His bumper was off, sump guards off and bonnet popped, my ds over rider was bent over! Another bump in the series 11 traveller this time, a new polo hit me, again big noise...

I quite agree with the 40mph limit, I went to Llandudno in it last year covering around 400 miles in a weekend, the car did me proud with the only problem being a choke cable which fell apart!
