Topped up the oil on the V70.  :)
That reminds me... I should probably put some in the Trolley  ::)
Are you supposed to do that? I thought the nice man in the garage did it once every 12 months or 20,000 miles, whichever is soonest.  ;D

Mine has a leak which is slowly but surely getting worse.  :-\

So I can't leave it that long.  ::)

Replaced the entire N/s drive shaft on the Zafira A tractor juice edition ,with the Ebay one (delivered to football club)
correct shaft but for some odd reason it had a reluctor ring on the outer CV  :-\
the ABS works off the speed sensor in the hub
anyway, Mr angle grinder soon had the reluctor ring cut off  ;D
But Mr angle grinder started spitting sparks/smoke from inside, so not long for this world  :'(
I replaced the hub/wheel bearing assembly  with a new one too 27.57 ebay
now drives quiet as a mouse*  ;)

* a mouse being chased by The Boy ;D

Corrected  ;D ;D :y

Hired some off road buggies yesterday, and went hooping around the local national park  ::)

I'm sure they could get more buttons around that Merc screen ;D. WTF were they thinking ;D


Tunnie - Zaf coolant is easy to top up (can't see your image, for some reason its blocked on this ISP I'm on (some satellite based system)), what was the issue?

I need to find a better image hosting... (this work? Guess not..)



But I used a hose to route under the scuttle, light was fading and know you can probably remove the scuttle. Even then set close to the bulkhead under the windscreen, this little method worked well.

That works now. Not sure why link doesn't, just times out. CBA to investigate.

If its like the Zaf-A and Zaf-B scuttle, its off in seconds.

Though having to top up coolant on a car that new is worrying.

I am pleasantly surprised by ease of service on the Zaf-C, pollen filter is a sub 5 minute job. Engine bits are all easy, with hose bodge above. Only grip is the oil filter in stupid place!

Scuttle looked a fiddle, now I have hose method this will be quicker, at least for basic top ups...

Was a very small topup, fingers width, if that. First time to do it since owning....

That's TBs point ::)

It shouldn't need topping up. At all.

I've topped up my astra (same engine) twice in two years. Not fiddly to get at like the zaf though.
