today i started to remove the a/c pipes, got as far as ready to remove the compressor but was interrupted. are there just two mounting bolts holding the unit to the block. ??
  in answer to my own query it seems there are two.  :y :y
was i wrong , managed to undo everything but could not pull it out . wont go up, down, backwards or forwards. so for my pain cut hands & all i ended up putting a couple of bolts back just to retain it in situ. and it started to pour down. :(

Anyone know if the springs and pins come with the brake pad kits? I've got a mechanic friend getting me rear discs and pads at discount out of local factor, I think it's Apec pads/discs. I already bought a delphi pack of springs and pins in anticipation of them not being in thhe brake pack, but they are for the solid disc by the look of it, pins too short and rattle springs too small.

Might just buy a set to be safe rather than sorry. Do these look correct ones?

It says listed for a 2.6 up to 2003 but they delphi pack I bought listed them as for this model but they obviously weren't. What a pain in the tits these springs and pins are!

So presumably your outside temp reading is reading F (for fault).  That'll confuddle the climate ;D
constantly at zero. not too bothered, but if i can find where it is supposed to locate to then it may as well go on

Sad and shocking news for you .My sympathies .

On another note , if what you say about your son is true he deserves a slap.
she apparently was ok . she knows my lad & knows it was said in jest to try to lighten the moment. i asked him what she said .

i purchased one from aldi on-line. it resembles a drill & charged up its ample to check & inflate all tyres. if the battery is dead then you can plug into a 12v socket. i have had loads before & i find this to be better than others.
