That's the one ;D

I would leave the thing running all day to mask the constant racket from the fridge unit... But the damn thing turns itself off if idle for a minute... Which involves turning it off to restart. Driving London must be such fun... :D

That's the primary vacuum line the connects the brake servo to the Plenum... The broken bit is the non return valve.

How long have you owned it ::)

Nobody has mentioned the "TheBoy Milton Keynes" test, I notice. ::)
If I can induce brake fade between Horsham and Crawley, it comes as no surprise that he changes his pads every month ;D

With the trucks at work, DAF shite, when the light comes on you simply have to park up, metres from anything, so that rules out parking bays ::) and press a button...

The truck then revs its bollix off for anything upto an hour and a half ::)

Given that they spend all day doing 20mph, this happens alot ;D

You really shouldn't be getting a dpf warning the way you drive. How many miles on the pussy?
Since the 460 mile trek back from Scotland? About 10 when the DPF warning came on.  Its now out following a steady drive up the dual carriageway.
Was the road blocked ::)

Have yet to send anything of interest  :D

Besides, if they are, then they can filter my spam for me :D

Food for thought*...

What happens to the front brakes on a heavy car used on an nsl dual carriageway with lots of roundabouts will get alot hotter for longer. If parked immediately after, then heat soak could become a concern.

*This test, whilst interesting, is on a light weight car which is stationary.

If you have a proper name, you don't need a number ::)

It'll probably be fine. The Omega is hardly a point and squirt car.
Clearly never driven yours hard...

200 isn't enough. Use this at your peril.

I believe it attaches to the head slightly below the coolant 'bridge'...

I would check, but no longer have one to explore. Best bet is to follow the plumbing from the inner wing to the engine, it runs alongside the fuel lines iirc ;)

Don't clamp the pipes. They're plastic  :o

Release the fuel pressure by removing the fuel pump fuse and cranking the engine a couple of times :y

Agreed... front wheel bearing play is usually bourne out by roughness when the wheel is spun...
