So it turned out to be the thermostat afterall....  ::)

That's surprising! -50 man points for me!

Any idea how/what it was doing or not doing to cause the fault?

Don't know Jimmy.  :-\

It was either a coincidence that it packed up at the same time I ran the cleaner through the system, or the cleaner give the coil in the cylinder a good scour and it now heats the water so quickly that the thermostat died of shock!  :o  ::)  ;D

The old thermostat was 24 years old so....

Does your alternator have the pulley with an overrun clutch built in?

I found an article (after I had changed SWMBOs alternator pulley) saying that both should be replaced ifwhen one fails.

(SWMBOs Galaxy has a 4cyl VW TDi engine - I don't know if they share any DNA with your Phaeton engine)

So the step daughter who bought a 6yr old Meriva for more reliability over the 20yr old stuff she used to run[and which then promptly broke]signed up to Economy Energy the day before they went bust :-X :-X I haven't a clue what happened to her as regards another supplier.

She'll be passed onto Ovo Energy like me Baza.  :y

A 202 to 432 vote is carried and given validity, credability and aplomb but a 17.4 milion to 16.1 million one is considered irrelevant .
Selective democracy , you gotta love it.......and get used to it too.
Fukc them.


Look at it again:


The referendum was IN or OUT. There was nothing about what happens after.


That was down to the government to arrange/negotiate/beg for.


Our elected parliament is supposed to influence the government(they're not the same thing) and approve the result.


That is how an elected democracy works. 70 million people cannot all get what they want!

I am also still 135kg although I am losing fat and building muscle (for the rugby of course) ::)

https://www.slimmingworld.co.uk/:P

(I still have 15Kg to go to get down to your weight, though.. and a lot less of mine is muscle ;D ;D)

Admittedly i am 30% fat according to the machine at the gym. I would like to get down to 15-20% which means losing about 20kg.  Not easy but not impossible either.

Yes it is this 6 year Sale of Goods I am operating under Already put it to Inchcape but they are saying I need to prove inherent defect

Tbh that's the flip side of what which were saying. If you prove you didn't / couldn't have done anything wrong with the part, all that remains is inherent defect or failure to fit correctly.

Given that civil actions are done on the balance of probabilities, the other evidence of failures on the internet is worth noting as it may be persuasive.


FWIW if it were my car:
In all likelihood, for 400 they wouldn't go to court anyway. I'd be tempted to wing it. Tell them what you want, threaten to sue them, lodge your case with the small claims court using the "evidence" of a high number  of similar failures. They won't be able to instruct a lawyer for 400 and will pay you as a "gesture of good will".

Not playing with a straight bat, but I'd put money on it working.  :y
