Looked at Audi A3 air bag issue and squeaky rear suspension. "Looked".





Not actually touched the car yet. ;D :y

Ah, so the Audi is 'there' and not 'here' then?  Going to say, if it was local to me, I might have been able to check, age dependent...

I washed both my Omegas yesterday (or was it Tuesday - dunno, the shite on the telly was something about a marriage).  Albatrosses with a bad case of the ten bob bits have since used it for target practice.

Changed the passenger door lock motor on the Elite (did the drivers a few months ago), and changed the passenger door seal on it as well.

Rest of day has been running cables through walls, and rearranging some of the insulation in the loft.

Was it too much effort to do the boot seal on the same day then ?  ::) ;D ;D

Yes! The door seal tried my patience ;D.

Seriously though, I had too much other stuff to do, so didn't get around to boot seal.

I changed the discs and pads on my new 3.2 elite, nightmare, seized pistons and rear pads were baked onto the caliper,  5 hours later all done. Fuel filter  today and start on stripping out the centre console area to get replaced with wood trim
