Another years luxury motoring
« on: May 18, 2017, 06:26:47 PM »
Yes, Rosie has another MOT  8).

Only briefly failed. I gave the garage some cash to replace a leaking fuel line. It was the short one from the vacuum valve (iirc) to the filter. Mechanic reckoned the filter looked new and when changed the short pipe was probably bent too much whilst fitting it. He reckons the other hoses were OK. The short broken one was very bitty  :o - surprised any fuel stayed in it  ::).

RIP - 1992 2.0 CDXi Manual Estate (Spectral Blue with far too much tin worm, now only parts).

Old age means wondering: Do I really have to struggle to become an expert in something I might never need to do again.

Thanks Dave.

Good point. In  fact, some time ago,  Mr Mad has "been there seen em and done em" regarding the ones to the fuel rack.
