I like the rapid tinkering progress on the 205, looks like a decent daily hack. That's precisely the kind of fault diagnosis I enjoy the most, just very methodical stuff without having to take half the car to bits. Must be a pretty frugal car. Will it polish to down to one or two shades of red? Also interesting to see inside one of those jump packs. To be honest my main complaint with them is that if you buy one off the shelf it might already have quite an old battery in it, and then they spend most of the time on the shelf at home anyway by which time the battery may well be dead when you need it. Your solution of changing the battery yourself is a good option to buying another unit.

I think that is what happened with mine, the battery would charge but wouldn't jump start. The new battery was £28 delivered so a reasonably cheap fix. It's quite nice having the compressor on the pack. Also means not chucking something away.

Paint work is least of my concerns. I would be tempted to have a go at Rustoleum on it to create a single finish as it is never going to be a show winner.

I think it will be more frugal with veg. Asda is £3.75 for 5 l so it will be worth stocking up on that I think once it is up and running.

To reward myself with having written some of my assignment I got to fit the relay kit for the headlights

This is a useful thing if the headlights are a bit pants as it puts 12v straight to them through a relay
dbbaa81325fbe697c2398352a290bf39.jpg
First you remove the old connector and fit the new one
e7a11c90721de2ab467b9162f2dd1977.jpg
Then find an earth point. I have just trial fitted it at the moment, it will be removed and fitted more tidly when I get a chance.

The other side by the battery is chockablock with wiring and a fuse box.
9592a59204825a28e04274dc5e70239d.jpg

Headlamp this side is broken so will need to be replaced before the MOT

Yellow caps off as I really dont like them
59c05b4d1e1c2c46a85ccf9c6fad1a2f.jpg

Plugged into the back of the headlight then the live run to the battery through some relays and a 30amp fuse. d9f6f13835adc9c6c4c4411145f3684f.jpg

All great ... Except main beams didn't work. The relay clicked but no lighting.

Checked the norm light connection

90d33816d2005f38f72b878c8d20f32d.jpg

That looks ok. Main beam time

7df799cd70f0097b8b11ff138960c0a4.jpg
Ahhh that might be the problem.

Looking at the relay block the power feed for the main beam comes from the centre of relay one to feed the power side of relay two.

Check the relays -

No middle prongs hence no power getting through.

These are silly easy to work on as not much to them so no trim etc to remove. Plus lighter evenings mean more tinkering time

Lancer has disgraced itself today with an MOT fail

Partly my fault
d5403dec38f7c9f15b7244f60675718b.jpg

So need to reattach the roll bar, un twist the flexi and sort out a wheel bolt.

So how do you fixed an MOT failure... By doing this

fb3272a151b00f15d55231809661280e.jpg

I will rewind a bit. As seen above the MOT failure list wasn't massive but niggling.

NJGleeds had kindly agreed to help with the Rover 820 today. Sadly I hadn't got the right cambelt and after checking sources one couldn't be found.

So after MOT I popped round to borrow the ramp to see how bad the fail was.

365c65d86a75eaa82204efd97d718e56.jpg

the bracket had pretty much disintegrated. It was in a awkward spot right by the fuel filler and next to the tank. Meaning heat wasn't an option.

Second best is Mr Leeds and a massive breaker bar. This resulted in two snapped nuts, then two more that could slowly be worked out. The final one was an absolute arse.

8d583c8f31859ac50bae3ceb35883216.jpg

We luxoed it with a smaller socket, the I drove home to get my Irwin bolt removers but no joy.

Ever the salesman, Mr Leeds offered me the keys to a Mondeo he was looking to scrap, but felt it was too good.

It had eau de Theshadow and engine warning light due to turbo actuator not working. But it drove nicely without DMF issues.

Over a cup of tea a plan was hatched to swap the lancer for the mondeo.

The lancer has been left in his capable hands... .dd499770fa84fc54bfe29e029a067c39.jpg

Previously on Snagglepuss Presents...

Lancer failed the MOT, it was attempted to be fixed, then was swapped for a stinky Mondeo with a Turbot fault....

All was good in the world, the Mondeo was going to be a nice run around for the next few months.

046dd89943621bf1b1ce0d4084e85a60.jpg

Then this morning when cold
7c8ee6457b14912af891b1714539e7a1.jpg

Oh bugger.
67dd23a2fb22ccfc9f4d8f94ca7f5e44.jpg

it's just one of those things.

affb8d2b612bfda90bd8c946bf0d59a5.jpg

Luckily

d6c28f8c89115cd6b7f157fb066cc40d.jpg

So yes, I sold the golf to NJGleeds needing a clutch and DMF, I then swapped a lancer for the Mondeo, then the Mondeo came out in DMF sympathy so theoretically swapped it back for the lancer, before doing a deal to buy the fixed golf off him.

Two days and three cars.

This afternoon I took the opportunity to fettle the little pug

The brakes were properly poo - pushed them and gradually you would slow down.

Up in the air and first time to look underneath

Reckon these might get an MOT advisory

The noise maker

Wheels off

3c2cd82136eecfe158c4fdd9df37c6b3.jpg

First side came apart and was cleaned up. It was quite rusty under it all. The discs weren't that shiny and looks like the the calipers are sticking a bit.

Other side wouldn't come undone - we decided that discretion was the best part of valour, so fitting kit ordered and will be sorted another day.

a0dd49831aa4207cfa1822cd89eb49af.jpg

Brakes were bled through which helped a lot.

After that it was time to investigate the headlight/horn.

Found the horn connectors

3680b924b93a1e763bea9a7988297a9e.jpg

Tested and it gives 12v - so looks like the issue was the horn
92189c32699b7443fc718faf500545c6.jpg

The Mondeo one is going to be removed before it is scrapped to fix that bit.

Whilst we were in there we found this
0d689a164145f68cbac78e0d5e5a9ca0.jpg

Any ideas what it is for?

The passenger side headlight is knackered, the plastic side side locating lug is snapped so may have to just buy a new one.

To celebrate the pug decided not to indicate - replaced bulb not cigar. NJGleeds worked his magical electrical fingers and discovered the connectors were shit. Chopped off and replaced with spade connectors it is fixed for now.
e9c82180706593b8db949477ae8bf01f.jpg

Looking at the other engine bay connectors it is probably worth swapping them all if I can. Most of them are corroded and manky causing issues.

One thing that has stopped working is the oil pressure and STOP light on the dash.
89b517b73d8641bcfeab7eaecc2bad92.jpg

Current issue list

MOT failures

No horn
Passenger Headlight
Handbrake/brake fluid light not turning on

General stuff
Throttle cable is sticking - needs removing and cleaning
Front brake discs, pads and probably calipers
Rear brake overhaul
Driver's door lock changing
Interior fan intermittent
Dash bulbs don't work
Change the exhaust (it gets loud a lot.)
Put stereo in

Glad it is of some enjoyment to someone :-)

Had a bit of a battle tonight as Miss SP said I shouldn't be keeping the 205. At begining of the year I apparently agreed that I would have a sensible car and the mx5. The 205 is neither of those things.

She gave many logical arguments as to why it shouldnt be part of the household... I had to stamp my feet and moan.

I won (the battle, probably not the war).

This 205 is ace. Even NJGleeds neighbour who ignores the usual coming and going of child came over a few times to have a look.

Mr Leeds himself grins when it is near him - there is just something about an honest straight forward car.

The ultimate plan is to get all the niggles sorted and sell the golf. That would mean the pug being my daily.

I will need a working heater, electrical bits and brakes for that to happen.

I only ever had the cherry bomb put on because I couldn't be arsed waiting to find a proper exhaust for it, did order one at the time but it had the wrong fitting. In a weird way though, I didn't think it sounded that bad, considering it's an NA IDI diesel. Definitely heard worse pez motors. Can understand that not everybody would want to drive about in a manky 205 that makes an absolute fucking racket though  :-P

Glad you agree that it's a pretty straight, honest car though. It's not perfect by any means, but considering its backstory and the life it's lived it's doing well. I hope to see this car again in the metal one day when you've properly sorted it.

Nothing to see here....



Well maybe a little thing.





Mondeo of mankiness was removed under warranty* and instead a golf was hand delivered.

Have a shit photo.
6660017fb659e52af13bc8b79411cbfe.jpg

I know it might not be the thing to do here, but wow. I quite like it. Everything works (that's a first), decent amount of power with decent tyres handles ok.

I didn't expect to like to, but it is a rather nice car. It has cruise, AC and bits and bobs. No computer though which is odd. I get why people stick to the brand.

Pretty much fsh although interior is a bit worn and stained (but no map of Africa). New Luk clutch and DMF fitted by NjGleeds motors.

Quite fancy a remap - will add that to the never fucking going to do it pile as many things need fixing first.

Although it is 2004 it feels far newer than that and doesn't feel very AS. I guess driving a pug with cherry bomb diesel then this couldn't be more different.

That Golf looks and sounds quite promising. Nice colour. Seems like a purchase of much sensibleness. Still new to VWs myself what with getting the excellent Lupo from JoeyEunos. Sturdy, dependable motoring. Much excellence.

Crazy to think that this is on an '04 reg, my silver Mk4's an '04 too and yet this looks light-years more modern!

 

Golfs get a bad rap on here which is slightly unfair IMO. They're robust, pleasant to drive, not bad to work on and cheap and easy to get parts for. While everything else round me car wise goes to shit I always feel comfortable that the Golf will start and get me to where I need to be with minimal fuss.

Must say I do like that Golf. Looks well in that colour.

 

A friend's Dad had one for a good while and think the only problem was a dodgy EGR valve.

There’s a nice twin tone effort from a mk3 Mondeo waiting to go in there now.

Might be a bit of a tight squeeze though.

Golf keeps surprising me.

Serviced today with Mr Leeds for total sum of £50 ISH, including oil, air, fuel filters and wipers changed.

Also found out it has VW connect. I had never heard of this before. My brother said he got it with the car.

So it is basically an OBD2 connector plus a VW app.

Some of the things you can see on the app

It's pretty neat and can book services or oil changes with the dealer. Has got the Vin number and car details.

Nice little touch really.

Ordered a new driver light switch as the old one is really worn - £7 delivered - that is bargainous.

The total interior needs a deep clean. Will do some interior shots when I get a chance.

As it stands I have got a golf, fsh, brand new Michelins all round, new clutch and DMF with MOT till December for £550.

Everything works which is unusual for me.
