Gonna buy a steamer (or try and see if I can get work to buy one) and steam clean absolutely everything with Dettol. I've got a 197 steering wheel to fit @0ss but I still need that 4mm spacer. I got a Meg 250 wheel for the Megane so I might bang the 200 wheel in the Clio and re-dye the stitching to blue from yellow
Decided to give the Monaco some love as I'm using it daily now since the Megane decided it doesn't like its main shaft bearings anymore.
Slapped in a new cabin filter, I couldn't remember if I'd ever done one on this one but I had one in the garage spare so there was no harm in throwing it in
Unplugged the headlight washer pump as it was still trying to pump when I had my headlights on and I had the tubes linked together. Hopefully now it wont blow itself up
While I was under there I noticed the bay was rather dirty..
I was gonna clean it but then just thought to myself that it's only going to get bad again after 20 seconds so what's the point
I've forgotten how ace it is to drive an asbo spec car every day. Especially when some dole dosser tried to race me in a Vectra with a fat bird in the back seat, see ya later c**t. Its ace for shopping too, no back seats so theres nothing that wont fit. Including a 6ft3" Christmas tree
Went from Leeds to Silverstone in it the other week for my works Christmas party and it nailed 38.7mpg sat at 80mph all the way. The Megane would have only done 45mpg so it's not as if I'm spending more money using this everyday either. It's just my back and my knee that's taking a f**king battering!
Jet washed the car off earlier because I dont want road salt eating away at all my painted parts
Unfortunately I got water in the engine bay after spraying the underside of the bonnet. It drove fine at first, then I parked it up for a few hours at work, came out to it and it was sputtering like f**k. Drove all the way home with it kangarooing like f**k
Got home and stripped it down and there was an amount of water in the first hole around the spark plug Dried it all out with bluroll and now it drives spot on again.
My mrs held the torch for me, definitely baby Yoda-esque. I wont make the spastic mistake again without covering the engine
It earnt its keep by collecting a new gearbox for the Megane though
Came out to the car this morning. Stuck the heaters on, wasn't de-misting as fast I wanted (I wanted to get home to bed after being awake for 19 hours) so I cranked it onto max and then they just stopped altogether... f**k
So I messed about looking at fuses and wiggling connections... Then the car wouldn't start... Bigger f**k!
Stood in the rain messing about for 30 mins like a f**king plank, taking battery terminals off and cleaning everything, wiggling and cleaning off all the bay fuses and the glovebox fuses, still nothing. So then I gave the white plug in the bay another wiggle (I'd done this 3 times before) and the throttle body clacked into life and relays started a'clicking!
Bingo, started as if nothing had happened. f**king French white flag waiving f**k. Now just the issue of the heater still not working so looks like a new resistor will be needed!
Titanium 182 Cup packed on 69k, 2 keys and not sure in how many owners. Needs a few things addressing but it will look a lot better when I've had chance to get my hands on it. Drives lovely and smooth for a standard car! Almost feels as good as my 172
