If I am going for the car pass, then I may as well get a new fob and second key whilst I am up ::)

Don't let them get the vaseline out re programming. Just pop up here and we'll dust off the Tech 2. :y

I find it hard to believe that British workers ( even scouse ones  :P) cant compete with lazy French communists.

Not unless a 2 hour lunch break and a bottle and a half of wine mysteriously makes it really easy to assemble an Astra. ::)

Sky had a green tinge around lunchtmie here, followed by an orangey haze, followed by bright sunshine.  A bit of a stiff breeze, fortunately most of the neighbours aren't too stupid to put bins out tonight (esp those stupid little food waste ones we have to use), so hopefully cars will survive.

Those food waste bins make excellent buckets for car washing using the 2 bucket method. Smaller one with soap in, larger one with water, and a handy carrying handle too. :y

'cos I CBA to recycle food waste. Food + waste? Doesn't compute. :P

OMG! I can even see the leaves moving on the trees outside now. :o

Yep, it's always useful stuff to have so just buy a 100M drum. :y

Placed an ad on Autotrader for the BMW... had no contact re either its collection or its replacement >:(

Had enough of being messed around over both points :-X
Sold it. Off to Russia as bits...
Not beanz tins? A fate too good for it. ::)

You know who would fix this? Corbyn. He wouldn't stand for this kind of weather, terrorising the good working-class people of Ireland!
Now, where have I heard his name mentioned in that context before?  ::)

I wanted to vote but Trump wasnt one of the options.
The Lamb Naga option is certainly trump related. Close enough. :y

Replace the regulator... I think mine cost about 35 including 9am delivery to a camp site in Wales last year! :y

Seconded. Google Mid Ulster Rotating Electrics or find them on Ebay.

Somewhere on here is the spec. of the bearings. If you rebuild the alternator with new regulator and bearings it'll be as good as new.

Calm as a mill pond here and was 16.5 Deg. C this morning when I left. :o

Omega General Help / Re: Engine temperature gauge at over 100C
« on: 14 October 2017, 11:08:00 »
What does the temperature gauge indicate when you are driving? Particularly cruising at moderate speed where the fan won't be needed?

If the indication is normal, I'd say it may be the thermoswitch. If it's still high, then thermostat / water pump / gauge still not reading correctly.

Might be worth pressing the instrument panel firmly home in case there's an intermittent connection back there. Also check the engine to battery and chassis earth strap(s).

« on: 14 October 2017, 11:02:23 »
.. and be aware that an AR25 in a 2.5td is a bit of a marginal combination. Might not be worth too much diagnosis before a 2nd hand AR35 is the best option. Start with a fluid change, though, and check that the sumps are clear of debris. :y

That's promising news. Fingers crossed. :y

I don't think that anyone is going to mourn the likes of her or her kind, but I do wonder at how numb and complacent we have become at the Western powers carrying out extra judicial killings in foreign lands supposedly in defence of our own countries.  :-\

After reading Rods post above, it also makes me wonder how long it will be before people are getting zapped by a drone as they come out of Tesco's because they didn't pay their TV licence?   :o   ::)   ;D

I can't imagine the tv licence stasi ever becoming that moderate. ;)

Omega General Help / Re: Fuse identification
« on: 13 October 2017, 09:45:32 »
Thanks Kevin Having been in the fuse box this week I wondered if I had moved a fuse although I did not have a spare fuse. Looks as  there was never a fuse in this position.I am slowly learning to take photos before delving into the unknown.

That would make sense if the car is petrol. I'll check mine when I get a chance remember.
