Two of the bolts holding the drivers seat of the Puma in have sheared. 

 

Does anyone near Accrington have the ability & tools to fix this? Beer tokens available. 

 

Or I guess a sparkly stick could be used to weld the seats in . Not ideal but would work.

Braving my icky cold I tackled this today as I needed the puma for Knockhill on Saturday.

One bolt came out easily with this set from Screwfix

https://www.screwfix....ds&dclid=CKCcp

Drilled a small pilot hole then used the extractor to remove the bolt.


The other bolt was drilled through then selected one from this kit

And voila one seat securely attached.


Happy days. 8c6f2d392d1cfb6f499097299cb31a07.jpg6bb83b7b24043def83dece4439194a1e.jpg9f923f4137394139a5b6260f633a8997.jpg

Puma is feeling poorly this morning after its knockhill session. 

 

Current symptoms are 

 

  • Grinding front left brake 
  • Whining rear brakes
  • Groaning when turn left 

Its not like that this time next week it will be my only car ..... oops. 

 

Will likely cancel the autotest on saturday as need to get it fixed asap.

Will evaluate it tonight - insurance runs out tomorrow so would have to do reinsure it and then cancel the insurance in the cooling off period to get it to there. 

 

Or could just buy a) a broken 172 or B) an mx5  :-)

In the beautiful autumn weather I took a look at the brakes.

Didn't look too bad at first glance as a few mm of pads left . Once off it was clear one of them had rubbed down to the metal.
Also the anti rattle spring had disappeared into the ether

New versus old. Clearly can see the rubbing. Pretty much 4 hours of constant abuse killed the pads.

Cleaned up and all back together.

The creaking from the top mounts was fixed with some grease to stop them making a noise.

I lowered the tyre pressures for the last run and it was obviously too low for the sidewall. I think I need to run 36 ish fronts hot for the Toyos to work properly.

Will stick these on the back and buy some new front ones in a month or so when have some money. 40a9c3466618530e9ce7dd68be967218.jpg87b018fbd35cf8b0b60e197a6daa8ba9.jpg03491ec0a01f41fcb4bdacaca07fed72.jpge002bab07f5c2f0602dacc50bf8f4944.jpgae87aef269879fe729150e570725e335.jpg

Hyundai Getz washers were more blocked than a constipated hippo so took some time to fix them today.

The filter on the pump was full of slimey gunk. I cleaned it and only then decided to take some photos. I also tool the washer bottle out to clean it all up.

Then using the tyre pressure I blew threw all the hoses. Loads of crap spurted out. Needed about 25 psi to shoot it all out!

Very satisfying :-)

Simple jobs keep me happy.

That's a good idea to use tyre pressure if you don't happen to have another source of high pressure air. I will need to remember that trick for future use.
