General Car Chat / Unusual one with the Zaf this morning
« on: 14 May 2018, 07:52:17 »
Unusually by car was on the drive, so needed to reverse out....
Was 2.5 oC should it be of relavance.

Clutch felt a little strange, cant be more specific really.
Car stalled halfway out, and I couldnt get it out of reverse to restart it, seemed seized in gear.
Got it out, restarted it, moved it some more, and couldnt get it out of gear to go forwards.
Turned ignition off, got it out of gear, started it again, into first and off it went no more issues.

Tested reverse again once I got to work, and it felt a little rough, but in and out a few times and was fine.


General Car Chat / LED Headlight bulbs

Just had a dipped beam blow again on the Zafira.

Given the very dark lanes that are my commute, I tend to buy the higher performance, lower life lamps.  However this generally means only a years life....

Has anyone tried LED upgrades, how have you got on?  They sound brighter and longer lived...but are they actually any good in real life?

General Discussion Area / Another heating issue

Its the turn of my warm air central heating to need mending  :'(

It was playing up bit time, investigation revealed this

full size below if you want better zoom

Question is, is this repairable?  Clearly some components (at least the central varistor, and 1 resistor) are unidentifiable as theyve melted....but why?
Am I ok to just replace these?

Ive bought a new PCB as it seemed the best option to quickly get the system running again, and to also identify the bad components, as this isnt a common unit theres not a lot of info out there on it.  Ideally I'd like to repair this in case of 'next time'.  clearly no urgency to this now though.

Can put other photos on if needed.  Of old or new
