I'm still looking for both a gloss wood and silver Irmscher steering wheels with radio controls with no luck... Can't even find one to refurbish - the coloured part can be repainted but really need the leather bit to be as good as possible as it's harder and more expensive to put right.
I must get round to fitting my wood one that's been sat in the garage since the day it was rebuilt.

Can you fix it then ?
I struggle to find new reliable lasers for them. So I'm reluctant to pay out 30 on the offchance it would work.

I'd recommend buying a known good NCDC or NCDR, and swap over the CD mechanism. That's what I do now.

You did, titled "What a pillock". ::) ;D
LOL, couldn't find it for looking, only realised when somebody bumped it. Must be an age thing  ;D

Picked up what I thought was a wheel bearing noise on the way to Warrington yesterday (I must admit I felt it was my chickens coming home to roost after commenting on TB's Jaaaaaggg's penchant for eating them). So I ordered one up from Paul Rigby Volvo in Stourbridge who got it same day  :y

Started stripping the hub down this arvo and discovered that the useless chimps who did the timing belt had re-used the old wheel bearing stretch bolt which had now worked its way loose  >:(.

Retightened it as a temporary measure and scooted back to Paul Rigby. Explained my predicament, the parts guy did the refund and then got on the phone to order me just the bolt, couldn't get volvo UK as it was 1701 on a friday. "Never mind" he said, "you can take this one out of the wheel bearing kit, I'll order a new one before we send the kit back". Opened the box, cut the bag and gave it me. "How much?" I asked "Oh, you can keep that, we don't get many DIY'ers in these days, it was nice to see you".  Result!!  :y

Not having an Ovlov, please explain the connection? :-\ :-\ :-\
FWD, probably needed suspension bits out of the way for access.

Not many dealers like that now, so result :)

I keep my friendly Vauxhall parts man on my side for that very reason :y

But still get a proper replacement part. Else we'll be dragging this shit up again in a few weeks.

It would take less time to replace the part than it took you to hacksaw the valve adapter.

Appreciate everyone looking, let me know.

When disc is insert it says it cannot read data and it ejects it almost straight away.If I keep pushing it back in after about 5 or 6 attempt message appears the their is a disc error and advises to clean disc.

I have several genuine VX discs and despite cleaning all of them they all give the same message .

There is no sound of a disc spinning purely being drawn in and then ejecting.

Fault has been present now for 8 or more months prior to that all was working fine and no different discs have been inserted
What about audio disks?

Took the IAM apart. Hard disk looks buggered, as suspected. Bugger.

No, because I would never be in Paris, due to the fact its in France.  ;D
Nought wrong with France. Although Paris is a shithole, full of Parisians.


Apart from the fact its full of French people. Granted they may show a degree of friendliness when your giving them your hard earned cash though, as they have never "hard earned" anything due to being a nation of lazy communists.  :)
Ignoring Parisians for a moment, and whatever nationality lingers around the Northern ports, especially Calais, I have found the French people friendly, helpful and pleasant, irrespective of whether I'm giving them money or not.

Had no real issues with Monarch. Yes, a low cost airline, but I don't recall any particular issues with space compared to other scum-class flights.

TBH, not really had any particular issues on any flights that were down to the airline. Have had the usual delays that we all get, had emergency landings due to onboard failures, had an aborted landing due to a light aircraft being in the wrong place, had the usual little brats screaming and kicking the back of my seat all flight, and so on.

But I'm of average height.  What I lack in height, I make up for in width though.


Now, the airports. Don't get me started on the airports. Esp the UK ones.  None of them are even remotely any good, but Luton must be singled out for the worse of the lot, followed fairly closely by Birmingham.

User error?  :D ;D  :-X
It must be.  Or I'm too demanding.

I do demand, that when I've ordered an item, that said item turns up within a "reasonable" timescale, as is of the claimed quality.

By reasonable timescale, if I pay for next day delivery, then that's what I'd expect. In the case of egay, then that's within a few days after the end of the estimated date range stated when ordering.

If a company is not going to deliver within a reasonable timescale, I expect them to contact me, and then we can discuss options, depending on likely delivery dates.


Am I demanding too much?  I don't think so.


I had another egay item I had to raise a non-delivery dispute on yesterday. Within an hour, I'd had a response, and by 11am this morning, I was able to close the dispute.  That's how it should work when things go wrong, which inevitably they occasionally do.


ATP are clearly not willing to get involved, obvious by the piss-off pill they reply with and the fact they leave the replies to the last possible moment. When all they need to do is check with their couriers...   ...though their unwillingness to give a dispatch date or a tracking number makes me think they were slow to dispatch, possibly another one of those arsehole outfits that don't actually stock much, and order on demand.  And MigV6's post about confirms that suspicion.

If they had the balls to admit that, and that it would be here, say, next week, I'd be happy.  But giving no information, and washing their hands of it means I don't know whether I should reorder the parts elsewhere, or simply wait indefinitely for them to turn up.

It might only be 25, but that's my 25 that could be buying me 5 pints and a couple of bags of Salt & Vinegar in the pub tonight. So I'll be staying in tonight.
