Leave the welder where it is. I find the little orange lamp reassuring. When it goes out I shall know to check the bulb ::) :-X

Dismantled some unit of aircon at front of engine close to fan, service connector (fill up) was shoot out by overpressure. :(  Having found a used one I attempted to change them . Unsuccessfully. :( The ends of pipes are differents so I have to get it repaired by a welder who is able to weld alu aircon pipe as well. Not an easy job to find...I'm investigating away.  8) 8) 8)


Welder is found!  :y I had to do a little pre-work, I've cut down both of pipe end, fortune the outside diameter of one as the same as the inside diameter of other. So just cut a screw in and an other out and both of end could be fitted to each other.  :y I'm not sure in screws made by myself so I'm gonna get it welded properly. Welding tomorrow.  :)

I did this!

Finally cleared the 'Coolant Level'  CHECK light - nothing to do with the sensor - bloody things plug had come out underneath. :-[

Might get the spare airbag out and swap it in if I'm not too careful................ ::)

Upgraded her Rover 25 to have a pollen filter before the cold weather starts, so she has it ready for the spring.  Hoping it will fix the annual problem, whereby its the INSIDE of the screen covered in greasy, grimey....   ....SNOT!


What a sod of a job that is, as when we bought it (new), we didn't have the pollen filter option.  It took about 10mins, and cost 3.50 for genuine part ::).  The housing is all in place, all you have to do is fit a filter :y
