Popped into BBC and full service kit including oil was £64 - that is mega cheap.

Couple of quick jobs on the lancer -

Pollen filter needed a change

This has got two coilpacks that feed two plugs each

The sparkplugs look ok but had a slight misfire under load at the weekend.

Loving the look of that exhaust!

It's just normal exhaust but had a time of black VHT paint so thought I would give it a coat.

Back brake time.

They have literally been doing nothing.

Problem one is the discs are drilled and sized wrongly. That's what comes of cheap Amazon parts. f6239976b7e1b76dedc0b4cb7637a125.jpg53025da7f16601894a6c24af15af3430.jpg

Just waiting for new discs to go under the shiny calipers

Top graft man. Good luck attacking the wiring.

If you can't isolate what's fratening the blattery, I've got a twist on, twist off terminal isolator switch thing sat it a draw you can have. NEW IN PACKET WITH TAGS. Never been used.

Mr Njgleeds delivered a pair of shiny properly fitting discs. My mate was helping out today and quite enjoyed it.

The post cat oxygen sensor had flagged up on the dash. New one purchased and lobbed in.

The connector disappeared somewhere inside the car so would deal with that later. I had purchased an oxygen sensor kit that came with thread chasers to clean out the threads which worked well.

Old rear calipers are dead

Shiny discs on
e19a47773b59e04ad47b35cc817b0856.jpg

Everything was bolted back together (sort of) and handbrake adjusted.

Time to tackle sensor wire. I started ripping out the interior until Mr Leeds suggested it was under the drivers left foot rest. Bish bash bosh and code cleared.

Jobs a good un.

Except brakes felt a bit iffy.

Drove home and pedal went to the floor. Quick trip back to the garage and back up into the air - some idiot (me) hadn't properly tightened the caliper flexis once installed on car.

All sorted and bled again, brakes are ace.

New rule is Moog are you sure it is done up tight!

nice work, brakes scare me still, even after stripping them right down on the Geep when i had it.

 

Whats the plan with those calipers? Will they get the vinegar treatment or are they just scrap?

The Lidl socket set looks a bargain, I've heard good things re the quality of their tools. I bought a cheap 1/4 set from Aldi about 3 years ago that's survived relentless abuse and is still going strong somehow against all the odds.

Also really impressed with the results of the white vinegar, I wouldn't have expected it to work that well but the results speak for themselves!
