Re: Highways Agency - Good. RAC - FAIL!!

Lol. If it had broken at the end I'd say yes my fault but it went an inch or so inside the outer sleeve so not visible. I suppose if I lubed cables I'd have seen it. Very little maintenance required really. 108k on clock now. Valve checks I double up or triple as they are almost never out. Charge oi...

Re: Haynes

Less and less people are working on their cars nowadays. I was surprised that a guy in his 30s at work who is a electrical shift engineer paid to have brakes etc changed cos he wasn't confident to do it himself. He was going to take it to halfords for battery too until I convinced him to get one at ...
