Alternatively, tighten the nut until it shears off, then hammer the bolt out...

Failing this, notch the flange, then knock the bolt out...

Just be mindful that using an angle grinder in a confined space under the car might result in impromptu face removal surgery :-X

Checked & then topped up the brake fluid in SWMBO's Galaxy.

Poxy design - I had to remove the air filter and a section of intake duct to even get my hand on the reservoir.

Hopefully that will stop the occasional "STOP - brake fault' message from flashing up on the dashboard. :-\

I just wanted to add that I ordered Polyurethane Rear Subframe Bushings for the Pontiac GTO/Vauxhall Monaro from Pedders last autumn and those are good. Car feels lighter, the "big boat" feeling went away :)

Thanks. I used smaller starting bits, which used to break. I presume the correct speed is quite slow. I shall try it next time the need arises.


Not really; a quick look at the required speeds suggests over 2000rpm for a 4mm bit, and about 1000 for the 8. Those are about what a 2 speed cordless drill manage. Which is handy :y

Oh dear. On both my 2.5s the EGRs are inoperative, but still present. On earlier cars I had removed them on advice from this forum, others I blanked off. They cannot check the operation of them, can they? I thought they only operated on a cold start.
SAI (secondary air injection) is the noisy fan that blows air into the exhaust on a cold start.

The EGR opens when cruising to reduce combustion temperatures and hence NOx emissions. (Facelift 2.6/3.2 run lower compression ratios to reduce combustion temperature but suffer worse fuel consumption as a result)

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

Ron.
