I discovered today that its only a small bit quicker than a 18 plate Insignia 'Turbo D' salesman's express. A lot of modern shopping trolleys actually seem to be faster than it. That kind of shat on my chips.

Oh I got done up completely by a new A4 diesel the other week. I took it on the chin! At least mine was making a nice noise whilst losing!

Don't sweat it, that's not what these cars are about! He'd be all insulated in his luxury cabin while you're holding on to the your steering wheel as the dephaser kicks in. With a big smile on your face usually.

Got to use the right power range on these highly tuned n/a engines for maximum effect. Also that Insignia could have been auto boxed. Traffic light GPs are a lot easier in an auto as you only have to mash the go pedal and no clutches to worry about burning out (even DSG). I got a good 3 car lengths ahead of another TT that tried racing me off the lights. That's despite the fact he was crawling off the line before the lights changed. The off power pauses when he changed gear was very noticeable and pointed out it was manually equipped.

As dome said, don't worry about it. You'll get them once you hit the next corner and cock a wheel as you go around.

First off, thankfully, the Clio is staying although I will probably take it off the road over the winter to save a bit of money.

So the 75 did the same trick as my previous example by seizing its starter solenoid, resulting in nothing happening when you turn the key.

I bought a solenoid repair kit from ebay for £10 and installed a new plunger and contacts in the motor. The latter was a bit foutery but its all done now and in time for breakfast pancakes.

Engine cover off, the starter is buried deep down there somewhere.

I took the EGR valve off not really for acess but more for the purpose of seeing things.

It needs a clean, will do this another time.

A few bolts and wires and the motor was out.

Replaced the contacts and plunger.

And all in time for some home made American Pancakes

Sorry about the haphazard picture orientation and order, they were fine on my phone.

Good work. Fair play for getting out there on what looks like a rather damp morning!

Good job on the fix, and done in time for breakfast. Of only all repairs went as smoothly as this appears to have gone.

I had a bit of an 'oh flipping fup' moment when I started it and the battery light stayed on, but then I remembered that I took a mental note about there being 2 leads onto the side of the starter in addition to the earth, and I also remembered that one wire was hanging quite low when I was putting everything back together. Both leads now connected and battery light out.
