Sam, I don't think you need the steering wheel off to get the indicator stalk out, just make sure the wheel is turned away a bit so you don't break the tab on the new one putting it back in!

While looking for the mentioned advert, I found this. Strangely prophetic...

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if it is broke just ignore it, and maybe it'll be sort of OK...?

Hahahaha - there's definitely a joke in there about how they knew where they'd end up

It really was a game changer in safety terms though.  I've seen a few really badly fucked up ones in scrap yards that looked almost perfect inside (bar the bags)

I'll give it a go on the old one, not taken the wheel off yet, but have the air bag off so I can see.

WE FUCKING NEED to reproduce this with Beko's car on a cold morning when it will struggle to start and he will interrupt the music by cursing it

 

Possibly using his GIF of the faults too

Wish they'd told me they were towing it, I'd have secured the front bumper with more than 2 cable ties... And tweaked the rear wheel nuts up... Still, their problem now. The guy was quite surprised he turned up and I already had it running and ready to go!

I'm a 1 laguna man again now! Watch it shit itself next week... Also, just realised I'm a bit of a wally got buying a hatchback, where will I sleep at shitefest now! Best check it out next year and see if I need to buy a tent

I admire your optimism that a 'Goona 2 will last long enough that it'll not be terminally broken by the time SF18 rolls around... :lol:

I gave it a 9 month extension from you probably scrapping it/part exchanging it and them scrapping it!

 

Do feel a bit sad now, because cars have feelings too...

I didn't look too much as I would have been sad, but there was a lovely pogweaseled corsa B there, tidy looking focus and the fiesta.. My car was probably the worst condition of them all.

 

ASM do strip cars, so bits will be saved before their baled. The guy collecting it said well done for stripping it first as I'd have got fuck all for it whole, and thanks for removing the handbrake as that's one less thing for him to worry about when towing it!

Aren't those Fiestas the last of the 5 digit milometers? I.e. gone round once and then sold to someone who don't use it much.

Or was attempted to be sold but too many messers when selling meant family couldn't be bothered to sell it.

Here is a shot of my old one being taken away, strangely it doesn't appear to have been fragged as yet. It sold at BCA but is still on the DVLA, although untaxed...
