Think I will steer clear.

Discovered its losing a pint of coolant in 200 miles, and as its persisting down no chance of looking for where it is .... although the HBV will always be most likely .....   :(

Ran it for 2 hours and was starting to despair, no sign of any leaks anywhere, then ...  on the umpteenth selection of full hot to full cold a single drop of water appeared on a bolt head underneath the HBV .. and quickly disappeared again, 10 minutes later I managed to get another one, again on going full hot to full cold, so it looks like it IS the HBV.

Question is now, do I change it and risk destroying the skin on my hands and arms as well as filling the swearbox within the hour ... or do I give Serek a ring and have it done by an expert with minimum damage to my epidermis ...... ??  (I think I know which way I'm heading ..... :) )

Good luck in the new job :) what are you doing at TP?

Senior Internal audit manager, or Management Botherer as it's better known ;). No M25 for me, but I do have M42 and M6. My old job was in Rushden, so 30mins further at rush hr and I coped ok with doing that 3 -4days a week. i agree sitting in traffic is tedious. I think im going to miss the omega's slushbox!

I understand there's a local pub/b&b that does good rates for TP staff  so I willprobably end up staying over on Wednesdays to break the week up :).

Will your company pay for an 'escort' to join you in your room. Employee  well being is very important. :)

Thought you'd been on here a lot. Lazy bastard.  ;D

Pot. Kettle. Black.  ::)  :P   ;D

Now then, Sir Tig. It's hard work taking a frisky whippet out for a walk and a dump twice a day. :)

On the Omega, the cartridge cap can be a dog to remove as decent leverage access is very limited.

I use a 24mm flexible head ratchet ring spanner, and I find this works very well allowing the length of the spanner to be positioned conveniently for maximum movement, which isn't quite as easy with a ratchet and socket or a straight open ended spanner.

The secret is in the application...

On the Omega, the cartridge cap can be a dog to remove as decent leverage access is very limited. I never had a real gripe with the cartridge, but did find the spin on canister much easier to deal with.

For those more miserly amongst us, the spin on filters are also half the price :D...

When the car has been switched off there is still a vacuum present which has enough power to keep the pressure in the system albeit for a short while.

I dont have climate control but when mine is off and I turn the direction dial, you can hear the flaps hissing then the vacuum dissapears.

Have you checked the rubber couplers on the vac lines?
any signs of cracking will contribute to vacuum loss

I have a line that has nearly worn through where it has been rubbing on the coolant bridge.

Or the diaphram in you hbv is nearing its usefulness and needs replacing

I have checked all lines in engine bay and only thing worries me is that the pipe coming from brake servo (big round thingy) has been rubbed against AC line and has little worn but I think it's still okay. I have moved it a bit and now it doesn't touch that AC line anymore.

HBV is the next in line then but when pumping it with under pressure pump it sure works very good, and my pump doesn't even go on scale when the HBV already works.
