Didnt think mine were either until I shone a torch right up the top of them and saw approx 2cm missing off the end of each one.
Might take it to work Saturday, if I remember, where its nice and flat / level and then measure it

Havent measured it yet, but I would guess 25 - 30 mm higher than normal. Not ideal and not permanent, but better than having it dragging its arse everywhere as it has been recently.

This is what I had a couple of weeks ago. Whats yours like (location / size) in comparison ?

Cant decide which way I want to go with rear springs but MOT runs out Tuesday and two broken springs is an instant failure.
Decided to put the KYB springs back on that were on the car when I first got it. They are about 280mm high, for some unkown reasin and mean the rear of the car sits quite a bit higher than it should.
I will leave them on through the winter while I make up my mind what to replace them with, then change them again next spring / summer.  ::)

Im nearly 100 miles away, and I think I would lose sleep over it.  ;D

Then again, Nigel Farage has got time to start a 'Fossil fuel is cool' party well before 2030.

That would get a lot of votes.  :)

What is the purpose of the black plate ?

At the end of the day, none of the suppliers are going to invest any more money into infrastructure for a small scale usage fuel for internal combustion engines, which are in the process of disappearing for ever anyway.
It just wouldnt make sense for them to do so.

Just got home. Pulled the handbrake up, heard a clunk and then it seemed to lose all resistance. Probably a broken cable, r something pulled through the backplate.

The cable outer ends pull through the 'clamp' they sit in because both bits are rusty. Adjusting the handbrake so it actually does something exacerbates this.

A new cable isn't expensive, nor is it hard to fit if you're not worried about putting the exhaust heat shields back.


The cigar goes to NickW.  :y Cleaned the crustiness off the end of the cable and the clamp until they were nice and shiny.Then bent the clamp around the end of the cable a bit more to get it nice and tight again. Job jobbed.  :y

No -one with more than one brain cell or an ounce of honesty ever really claims they are truly green, it just moves the pollution from one place to another.

Fixed that for you.  :y

It was - about 25 years ago. Promotion of any kind of fossil fuel is now completely taboo.
We have "progressed" you see.  ::)

If you mean a rusty bulkhead, then front passenger footwell...
Which would explain why the pollen filter feels reasonably dry.

Game over then.

Not at all.Youve got a welder and probably know how to use it better than I can use mine.
I had almost the same problem a couple of weeks ago. Peeled the carpet back, ground the rust away and ended up with a 50p sized hole. Welded a little plate over it - job jobbed.  ;)
Ah, didn't think of attacking it from the inside.  I was looking at if I could get welder from outside, but no chance.

Thanks for the tip :y

Not only is is a lot easier, it also saves you from setting fire to the carpets inside the car while your welding from the outside.  :y :D
