Omega General Help / Well done, Autoglass!
« on: 27 May 2019, 16:21:17 »
Despite my trepidation about having Autoglass replace my cracked windscreen, especially after reading the comments in a similar thread earlier, they arrived on time today with a 2-man crew and new rubbers.
Unfortunately, the rubbers were pattern and didn't fit very well, so they re-used my originals, which thankfully were in good condition.
They did an excellent, thoroughly professional job,  even removing the rust revealed under the bottom trim - and primed it too!  :y :y :y 8) :)

They ain't ALL bad.....

General Discussion Area / Titan TTL488GDO petrol strimmer
« on: 19 May 2019, 23:49:14 »
I have been given the above strimmer as a non-worker and as yet haven't investigted it, due to lack of strip-down instructions.
Does anyone have any knowledge of this machine, because it also has a hedge trimmer/weed and shrub trimmer attachment which would be ideal for cutting back the forest on my grandparents' graves (long story there...)

General Discussion Area / Retail question - Lizzie?
« on: 29 March 2019, 18:48:30 »
It's an Own Brand question, basically, but a specific example caught my attention today when buying vinegar:-
Sarson's 19.4p/litre Morrisson's 7.7p/litre

That's a big difference, so how come and how do supermarkets gain?

General Car Chat / Cam cover gaskets.
« on: 04 February 2019, 14:13:07 »
My nearside cam cover is leaking a little oil onto the exhaust manifold (I think), so please may I ask what the current thinking is regarding sources of new gaskets, please?

Omega General Help / My neighbour's wheel nuts
« on: 20 October 2018, 12:32:47 »
Sorry to make another post regarding locking wheel nuts, but my neighbour has got a puncture in one of his tyres and cannot find the Key to unlock the security wheel nut - his 2-year-old may be responsible!
Any suggestions as to how to undo the thing without major destruction, please?

Ron.

P.S. I want to help, because his wife is drop-dead gorgeous........

Omega General Help / Is my OBDII bozwonk.....
« on: 19 September 2018, 13:19:55 »
.....or am I doing something wrong? The eml light keeps coming on and going off at random intervals, and Cataclean didn't put it out. Luckily, the MOT tester didn't comment on it, but I would like to clear it. I tested with an OBD code reader and it declared that there were no codes found, despite my doing the Pedal Trick and finding Code 0430.
I was hoping that the code reader would clear any codes, but if it cannot even detect codes, is the feader 'dangle berries'ed or am I at fault?

General Discussion Area / Lizzie, please explain.....

.....this strange retail pricing stratagem. Our local Poundland has spades and forks marked as "5, or 2 for 5".
The staff declared it crazy, too! ??? ??? ???

General Car Chat / Clear pass.....
« on: 11 September 2018, 09:01:47 »
.....and no advisories! Sod's Law would have it that on tne pre-MOT warm-up run, the EML light came on. Roadside diagnostic said No Codes Found, so I'm puzzled, but the MOT man didn't comment on it, so happy days! :y :y :y 8) 8)

General Car Chat / It must be only TB.....
« on: 08 September 2018, 19:00:42 »
I've just complained to ECP about an incorrect air filter delivered last June (I know, I just didn't get round to fitting it!), thinking that they would ignore me as it was that long ago, and a lady cdalled Rebecca responded immediately, asking for details of purchase.
I sent the PayPal details, and she aploogised for the error, and promised a replacement as soon as possible.
I had a text message from DHL this morning saying that they will deliver on Monday!
Sorry TB, it must be you?   ;)

General Car Chat / servicingstop?
« on: 05 September 2018, 19:14:31 »
Anyone had experience of this company? My MOT is due and so is a full service, so I got a price quotation from them - free collection and delivery, too - https://www.servicingstop.co.uk/booking_service.html

Are they con-artists, about to lift my leg, or is this a good deal? If not, Serek here I come!

General Discussion Area / Bargain of the year?
« on: 19 August 2018, 15:02:34 »
If you like sparkling spring water - calorie, sugar and guilt free - Lidl are currently offering 2 litre bottles for 17 pence! Yep, seventeen pence.
At the tills, they had 500ml bottles of the same product for 21 pence: guess which one I chose?
No prizes awarded, and no insults, please.....

Ron.

P.S. Diabetics like me can drink as much as we want with no problems.
