Yes, read the instructions, moved slider to correct position, but once original auxiliary's were attached, I just couldn't get it anywhere close. In the end I had to pack the lower fixing bracket out with a spacer to get it somewhere near, but even that was still too low and wasn't 100% happy with it. It passed the test last year, but maybe the new reg's which came in this year didn't cut it? Maybe it was the tester's bad day? Knowing I wasn't entirely happy with it, I acquired a replacement Hella unit last year..... and am glad I had it to hand to fit today. No adjustment required - spot on, even if it's not as crystal clear as the brand new one.

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

Cracked the rear window. 'dangle berries'.

Is that covered by windscreen insurance?
