Or indeed why we are still made to wear them in Wales? England donít have to? It is hit and miss trial and error all the way so far :-X

So the sheep can't identify you and press charges. :)

Your headlight is a very common problem, and it means the plastic adjuster is broken. The fix used to be about £15 worth of machined aluminium adjusters. They are no longer available, although you might be able to find some cast resin ones with an attached ball that are nearly as good.


A used headlight is another way, but it's only worth buying one that already has the metal adjuster.





left to right: an intact adjuster(although it is cracked), the wreckage that you normally find, the NLA aluminium part, and the may still be available resin piece.

I'd definitely gi with Dr Gollum's refill procedure, it worked well for me the last time I had to flush the heater. That was after the RAC had to fix a blown coolant hose, and the heater wasn't right from that day, which I suspect was an airlock combined with a stilted matrix.  It really doesn't take much air to be stuck in there to cause big problems.

And onto the next thing...

So basically, I'm going over the omega putting lots of annoying niggly things right:
So far...

Speaker suspension foam repaired with 'tacky glue' and ready to go back in.

Tie rods ordered, as the adjusters are seized on the originals and the tracking is out enough that the steering wheel is quarter to the left.

Boot struts ordered, since the car tried to bite me clean in half last time I had to get something from right at the back of the boot.

Rear lights all fitted with new bulbs, as the lid slammed shut with enough force to shatter all the bulbs, which obviously wouldn't have happened if I'd been reaching into the boot to get something from right at the back...

Headlights now clean, clear and minty fresh.  "While I'm on," I thought, "I'll fit those nightbreakers I bought for the other car and never fitted."  Obviously, they were the wrong size for the Omega lights.

However, when I put the old bulb back in, I noticed the entire reflector is loose and rattling around inside the light unit freely.  Is this a common thing? Does anyone know how to fix it please? Presumably the light comes apart somehow once I've got it out of the car?

On a positive note, I may just have tracked down the annoting rattling noise from that corner of the car when I go over rough roads...

I'm with TD on his philosophy. When i go into a shop and see the staff not wearing masks, i think, if they ain't bothered, why should i be. I've had 2 jabs plus my booster as i thought that i was protecting SWMBO, she had her 1st AZ but declined 2nd one due to clotting issues. Now know that i can still pass it on to her anyway. ::) . If i'd have known that earlier i would have passed on the booster.

Every cloud.......oil is down nearly 9% over the last two sessions. I guess traders might be thinking they'll get their fingers burned if air travel is affected. Travel companies, airlines well down too.
Wtf? Oil shot straight back up to it's opening position at the close. 10% down followed by 10% up  ::)

You, and your dear wife's pension provider , should rejoice......
For dear, read expensive.
And a very lucky woman I shouldn't wonder :D
Correct, extremely lucky  ;D
