Boris been on the radio. It looks like there are going to be a round of "social isolation". No more going to the pub and I guess my local beer festival will be cancelled!!!!!!

Gave my new toy (a 1990 Rover 216Gsi) a good clean inside and out.

Love the photo! Sums up owning an older car perfectly.

That's a great result and well spotted.

Chasing electrical faults can be a minefield but it always pays to check the basics first and so satisfying when you can identify a simple and obvious defect. Well done.

Ooo Terry. That looks nasty.

I know that I only have to look at a car and I get bruises and (my favourite) a gash to the head!!

Took a punt on a 5Litre tin of black Waxoyl.

Arrived today. Packaging was minimal but all ok.

Got my 20 year old Renault clit 1.2 thru it's annual MOT.

Passed with no advisories. Well chuffed.

Well done and no pesky advisories. Brill

Omega General Help / Re: brake pad sensor
« on: 08 December 2019, 18:46:28 »
On my pre-facelift 2.5 litre I have a front wear sensor on each caliper. (attached to one of the pads)

I think I remember that that this was changed to just one on the face-lift models?

I am sure someone can confirm this.

You can "fool" the pad warning system by bridging the terminals on the connector under the wheel arch. Useful if you damage the sensor on the pad during the pad change and you don't have a preplacement sensor handy.

Hi Graham.

Enjoy driving it. I have two pre-facelift 2.5 Elites and both are still going. I have done all the mechanics and welding myself over the years.

Removing the sill covers is a definite as well as a careful examination of the front chassis legs as suggested. Also take out the spare wheel and have a look at the bottom of the wheel well for rust.

I would take the car to a "friendly" garage and ask them to get it up on a car lift so that you can have a good look underneath.

Checking out the exhaust system from catalysts to the back.

Well done. Another Omega back on the road.

Reminds me that I must get one of my Omegas ready for it's forthcoming MOT.

Finally plucked up courage and looked at the small patch of rust in the bottom of the spare wheel well (Omega saloon).

A power file doesn't half eats the corrosion away. A small rust spot has now resulted in a 10cm X 10cm square hole.

Will pluck up courage and get the MIG welder out soon.

Harry's is the only scrap yard I go to now even though it is a 50 mile round trip. I can spend hours in there!!!

The turn over of cars is quite quick. If you find a car you with parts you want and you don't have the necessary tools make sure you go back within the week because it could well have been crushed after that.

I have the same problem.

I can see the "smilies", I can click on one, but it doesn't appear on the end of my sentence.

Well done. A great feeling when you get a pass.
