Love the comfort of Mercedes. But not an omega  :P

My only issue for mig number two is where to keep it 😩

😂😂😂

You boys are hilarious.

But seriously there will come a time as pmacca says that you'll only ever see the odd one at car shows. And that's quite sad.

As said money dictating (as it always does) I'm going to invest in another.

Starting to really feel like they're rocking horse shit on the roads.

But on eGay there's a load.

Seriously considering at least another one in case one day in the not too distant future we wake up and they're all gone.

If you do end up replacing the indicator stalk assembly with the airbag squib gubbins it's really not that bad though looks daunting.

Negative battery cable off for a few minutes. Take off the plastic cowl top and bottom (probably held on with a couple of torx or phillips screws. Pop the airbag off (usually a hole in the back to put a pick through to release the airbag. Disconnect electrical connectors. Steering wheel bolt out. Wheel off (don't smack yourself in the face with it). Then if memory serves there's a 10mm that secures a metal band at the back and that whole unit should slide off. There may also be a couple of other electrical connections I've forgot about.

It's been a while since I've done one so that's from memory but I remember thinking it was actually a nice job to do. Hth :y
Agree, except......if you own a Citroen Xsara, you really should let the steering wheel smack you in the face.  :)

 ;D no comment

I can recommend in Northampton if you're coming to the town itself. Though out as far as TB I've no idea.

Staying at Holiday Inn just off J15 M1. So anywhere near there? :y

So junction 15 is the "grange park" end of the a45. It's actually very close to the town centre. Come off the j15 and take the a45 to Northampton. You'll see a turn off at the Bedford Road roundabout and you'll be in town.

There is a lot of choice.

But I would go the Tamarind, Merlins or Star of India.  Parking for the first two is at the back of the spread eagle pub which is next door. Star of India park in the big car park on the race course dead opposite

Don't ignore checking for broken exhaust hangers either 👍

Mine are about as much use as a candle currently, so hoping they are OK at MOT (or that the new adjusters arrive so I have the confidence to fiddle). Oh, and I'd probably better polish up the lenses, again. Seems to become an annual thing once you've done it once. >:(
If you've never changed the bulbs, you'll notice a big difference when you do, particularly on those dark lanes with oncoming traffic when you suddenly realise that you can't even see if your lights are on.

The Shaguar needs new bulbs, but having a CBA moment to:
a) get to hellfrauds to buy some
b) look at how to take the bumper off to..
c) fit them

Fortunately I've got an Omega... and not my mate's Renault Megane, for example, where I foolishly volunteered to help him change the front indicator bulb recently. That's an entire evening of my life gone for good....

They tease you with the access hole in the wheel arch liner. You then realise bumper still needs to come off  :)
