Yeh you shouldbt need to file anyway, just drill out the old rubber, cut the outer ring with a hacksaw and then the old bush will tap out.
Then for the new one just push it in and then press the metal tube in
Looks to me like it just pushes in from one side and then you press in the metal tube, similar to ppwerflex but in one part.
I'd just get ppwerflex to be fair, tried and tested for years, I've never heard of flow flex
Same. Admiral with all mods declared was a reasonable price on my civic, it was a complete pain in the arse trying to even get a quote out of sky and Adrian flux so I gave up and just renewed with admiral. They literally charged me nex to nothing per mod anyway, I think it went up by 15 quid.
Yeh I'd stick a pre cat lambda sensor in, post cat doesn't really do anything.
You could try swapping them over, but if they are both the same ages then likely both are past it.
Is it an OEM cat? My 182 had a pattern cat on it and failed the mot every year, I then managed to get a genuine 182...
To be fair these must be the only car I've come across where people on forums treat belt changes like some kind of holy ritual, and if the belt wasn't done by the chosen specialist it's worthless lol.
It's a Renault clio lol, not a lambo
Yeh your average punter isn't going to pay an additional 500 quid because you says it's had the belts done.
I'd just advertise it at around the ballpark figure, knowing that you will probably get knocked down 500 or so due to the belts.
You never know, some idiot who doesn't know any better...
