Must say I took a real shine to 1 sometime ago and very nearly parted with cash....until I found the roadtax was £495 from memory .

Can say if that was cut significantly may well look the shape

Sounds like an ignition fault so first port of call would be plugs,followed by the coil packs paying close attention to any cracks or split rubber boots.

Surely of you haven't the tools with you ,but are capable of fixing it yourself,just buy the few tools required and do it yourself.

Cheap tool set must be available and if you can buy the part happy days .Even with limited equipment should only take 1 hour max and part should be around £20

Replaced rear brake pads this morning...before the heat got too much  8)

Can never understand why the outter pad normally comes out easily,but the inner always seems to be stuck fast to the piston and crub and crap seem to fuse it to the calliper body.After a wrestle got it out and changed and nice clean fluid bleed through system too so only the other 10 jobs left now ;D

Fully expecting old switches to come out fine...washers to be just slightly crushed..put back into new rad without any further issues...Ö.but like to have all bases covered for the sake of a few £,s :y

Never intended trying to fit them with rad in place.

Question was when I replace old radiator with new all hoses and switches will be removed from old rad to new ...wanted to ensure the seal on the old switches was sound when replaced ... :y

That's what I,m hoping for but want to be fully prepared especially as the bottom 1 looks a right pita to remove and reseal once rad is fitted.

Might just give the metal switch threads a smear of liquid ptfe to be on the safe side

After a productive afternoon with the coolant pressure tester I have now managed to trace the coolant leak which I thought was originally the aux electric pump..but now is certainly the plastic edge of the radiator at the bottom.

Question I have is when the new rad is fitted is it necessary to replace any seals on both the 2 thermos switches,as cant see any point in replacing either as fans etc work fine..its just rad that has worn .

Can I re-anneal the copper washers assuming that's how they are sealed or should seals be replaced...if so where can these be sourced
