If you saw the standard ones then you'd see this as an upgrade? They weren't half rotten!!Not keen on the zip tied flexi hoses mate, id go back to standard hoses that fit properly. I too had issues with braided flexis catching the strut on full lock on the Kangoo, decided not to use them in the end and stayed stock.
If you would then I'd greatly appreciate it mate!! I want this scabby 182 wheel gone tbh
I'd give you a sensor if I had one mate ?Small update
The Clio is 2 steps away from MOT, I ordered a set of new O2 sensors last night which I'll fit on Monday as the car seems to hunt and burble weirdly on idle and I don't fancy it failing on the MOT for something so trivial. Plus the live data values for the post cat lambda seem really off as they don't seem to read anything different and the figures are pretty high. For the sake of £80 I can change them both and not have to worry about them for a good while.
I dropped the gearbox oil the other day, before I put the engine and box back together I jetwashed the gearbox without the shafts in so I was pretty sure I'd got at least a tiny amount of water in the diff housing (I plugged it up with rags). So to be extra careful I just filled the box with some cheap oil to keep it moveable and I knew I could always just drop it later on... Well I'm glad that I did this before attempting to drive the car fully!
State of that! It had like a really Mayo like consistency on the settled bit at the bottom of the pan so there was water in the box 100% and I'm glad I dumped it, even if it had no miles on it

Went to my local dealer and picked up 3 litres of ELF stuff for £30, not the worst price considering it's at a dealership!

I then started the task that I always get annoyed at, I always tell myself that I'l buy myself a proper piece of kit that makes adding gearbox oil a 5 minute job... But then I always forget and end up using some retarded setup like this which takes me about 30 mins ?

I worked out that I did around 40 of those syringes full of gearbox oil to put in about 2.6 litres into the box, my hand definitely felt like it afterwards!!
And as you all should know I've been chasing warning lights and the car has been an arse with me for the past few weeks in terms of finding all the issues. I had the airbag, SERV, and ESP lights illuminated as I'd previously gotten rid of the ABS light with the resetting of the angle sensor position. I bought the RS Tuner modules and tried to reset all the codes and turn off certain parts that weren't needed anymore. I managed to sort out a few of the airbags, but the airbag light was still present and showing a code for an electrical anomaly. Someone put forward a theory that the car could have been in a crunch and the airbag computer could have needed resetting... I had other ideas with that

Went into one of my garages and found an old airbag ECU, plugged it in and cleared the codes and et-viola! No more airbag light, you beauty!
As for the SERV & ESP I had to keep on digging! I kept trying to reset the angle sensor as I'm 100% sure it this as I keep getting the same code (pic below) for it. Resetting it and turning it with the steering wheel off didn't do much, I tried unplugging it, disconnecting the battery for half an hour and nothing seemed to work. I will have to see if there is any live data that the RS Tuner can pull for the steering angle percentage and see if I can just reset it in there or if I 100% need to have it reset via CLIP (of which @Brigsy has offered to do for me at CSF, legend)

It may be a case of black sparky tape for the MOT and then get it sorted out afterwards, apparently, a new angle sensor won't fix the issue as it's not calibrated so the new one may do the exact same thing. I just want the car on the road because I can fix the bullshit easier once it's sorted! I've asked around friends for an angle sensor but as usual, they only seem to be my mate when they need something from me, not the other way around. Tossers
The list is slowly getting shorter, even though I keep adding things to it like a c**k? The panic has well and truly set in now, I haven't slept for more than 5/6 hours a night for the past 3 weeks and I'm just creating more and more jobs for myself to do so I can feel at ease that the car won't f**king fail me!!

I'll have to let you all know what I manage to get done on Monday and if it passes the MOT... ??
Ta for reading
f**king minter!?Looks well after a clean up. You wont have any problem with noise at Blyton, they dont test static, and my single box system on the Kangoo which is as loud as the old Yozza system does not trigger the drive by monitor. Mine is something silly like 108db on the limter
Wow I've never saw a steering wheel that bad
It was proper fluff like 5mm thick all the way roundWow I've never saw a steering wheel that bad
Keep topping it up or it will just go bang mateMy gearbox did the same as yours, fill it up and it pisses out until of the selector until its happy with the 1.5 litres left. Cant decide whether to keep topping up or let it go bang
