Well, that sudden cold snap must have brought on a dose of man-flu, surely?
My advice for tomorrow is to go to bed under a trained nurse..... :y :y :y

Why do people panic so? I took a soft broom to the car, all over (NO igloo!), and drove to Morrisons, no problem - driving according to the conditions.  :y

Funnily enough, yesterday I was just about to throw them away but iot was too cold to go to the dump with them, so I still have them.
That sounds like a good plan, Albs, thank you very much.
'Er indoors reckons I never throw anything away - my policy has paid off here!  ;D :y

Yes. Are they crap, then? They seemed solid enough to me.  ???

Ugh! But why; is the post on your new battery larger than on the old one?

So my new wishbones and my under 3k miles per year should see me and/or my car out, then?

That is exactly how I found out about the skuttle drain.
I asked on here why I had a minor paddling pool in the footwell, as it didn't smell of antifreeze and only occured after an English summer, i.e. heavy rain! As my driveway slopes upwards, I got the benefit of a pool in the back as well.....lucky me!  :(

Dare I ask if anyone is breaking an Omega and has a serviceable drain bung on offer?

Probably true, DG, but I didn't know there was a bung to look after until advised on here - another reason to love being here.  :-* :-* :-*

Good tips there, "cam.in.head", thanks.
I do agree with you that the drainbung has a purpose, but mine allowed a swimming [pool to develop and gave my carpets an unwelcome rainwater wash! When I managed to clear the debris, the flap was so tired it didn't work, so it got "Serek-ed" during a service!  ;D

Now you can see why I am confused, Andy!
I found, as outlined above, that proper 4-wheel and camberalignment transformed my Omega into a proper car again: it's amazing what you get used to, isn't it, until you get things sorted properly?

Oh, and were you looking in the mirror when you said "decent. honest mechanic"?  :)
