    Two techs Dartford

    Anyone know their prices? Anyone had a large job done like timing belt and water pump or a tappet adjustment and new gaskets? I'm booked in on the 7th for a water pump inspection and a tappet job and the only quote I've been able to get is £700 from a local general mechanic. Is that about...

    1.6 16v sounding like a lawn mower

    Hey everyone, Today, myself and my clio had a rough day. Firstly, on my way to work, the exhaust back box mount failed and the whole exhaust fell off. Got that fixed, welded in a new exhaust and that was good... for a total of 15 minutes. I'm not sure if this is exhaust related, I highly doubt...

    Squeaking/Chirping - Driver Side Wheel - Extremely Annoying

    Strange noise once car is warm, only on Idle

    Hi all, I've seen a single thread from 2016 about this but it wasn't conclusive and after taking the car to a few garages (or 2 a few times) I'm no closer to actually sorting this noise! It's a weird sort of chirping noise which which appeared after the timing belt was changed, they did water...

    Gearbox noise.

    I've read a lot of posts and can't seem to pinpoint what I'm hearing as everyone keeps going on about he diff bearings. Mine is only when the clutch is engaged in gear. Surely if it was the diff it would make noise regardless due to being connected to the driveshafts. When on the motorway it's...
