That mount looks like a small liquorice allsort.

 

I can't see how it is supposed to work.

Sit rep...

Air con doesn't work anymore, I think the fins falling out of the cooler rad have let all the cold out... Half of me is telling myself to get a fucking grip, I've had cars with no air con before... The other half is about to look on ebay for cheap air con rads...

Had the sun roof open today! Below 45 it's not too bad, over 45 and it gets a bit blowy, I was flicking my ash out the window and it was coming back in... But the sunroof works. Left it Parked at work with it open and it wasn't an oven at the end of the day

Brake squeal. The rears seem to be squealing when slowly reversing, the fronts under braking. Sodding things, the rears may just need a tickle, although I did give the calipers a light going over when I did the rear pads (which is just what I did to the blue one that proceeded to shit its rear calipers up...) fronts have not been touched bar a light bleed whilst I bled the rears, and look used, but fine for a while yet. Will keep an eye on the noise.

Still haven't washed it in my ownership...

Between 52 and 55mpg with a heavy mix of m40 and various back roads, about 700 miles a week (not for much longer I hope!

Front steering replacement parts still rolling around in the boot with no date in mind to get them fitted

Rear windows still don't work (really not fussed about that though)

Due another oil change in 1500 miles, and Ill get a fuel filter too. Then I can reset the service indicator so the spanner stops flashing at me

Not seen the eml for a few weeks now either, and haven't fed it any more magic juice.

Good laguna! (touches wood)

See, abuse it and it lives. Exactly the same methodology I applied to the 2.2 you murdered despite my MASSIVE neglect of it

Fuel economy is awesome compared with that shitter mind - I never saw more than 32mpg but that might be related to said huge neglect

I got it to 38 average!

I did as I was told with the blue one! When it wants money, kill it! Why can't the same be true for women?

This one seems more robust so not adverse to throwing a few pennies at it on cheap parts. Mainly because it's not blowing as much crank pressure out of the injector seals as it does from the exhaust

Whilst having a prod around at lunchtime with some baby wipes to idly get the filth off some of the plastics I remembered the 12v socket in the armrest still doesnt work. So I had a poke and managed to get the socket out, and had a swap with the 2 12v sockets I liberated from YT55 before it went, that used to work. No dice

 

Then I had the magnificent brainwave to check the fuses, and lo and behold a 15a fuse was blown (yes I've had the thing since November and have not checked the fuses). There was only a 20a in the spares so I lobbed that in. Mmmm, still no voltage. Popped the original socket back in and tadah! It works! As now does the 12v socket for the back seats! So now I can have my phone charger plugged in hidden away with the cable poking out of the side, rather than sticking out the dash and getting in the way of the gear lever.

 

I also think (and I'm touching my wooden desk here) that that's everything electrical (bar the occasional injector fault which at this very exact moment is fine) working, is that a record?

 

Ah no wait, the rear windows dont work. Still dont care as much about those so we are at 99% electrically perfect! Laguna normality restored.

Well that was fun! Was like working in an oven, I'd pick up tools and they would be red hot, but the inner tie rods, track rod ends and drop links are done!

Few things I noticed:

The proper inner tie rod removal tool doesn't fit around the anti roll bar, so water pump pliers got used again

The supplied generic gaitors were shit, so I cut the new one and the old one in half, and inserted one inside the other (their the same diameter, and the ridges fit inside each other really tightly) then a drop of glue around the join and cable tied on. Will check it in a few weeks, and if by a miracle the car is still with me/alive come the next mot I'll worry about it then

Had a shit my pants moment on the first test drive, went to do a 3 point turn to lock to lock the steering and got a horrible scary grinding noise. Limped home (was only in the next street) and upon removing the wheels realised I'd put the track rod ends on the wrong sides, so the wheels have scraped the inside edge and taken the weights off... Will see how that goes on Tuesday at 70mph...swapped round though and all good

Steering wheel is a bit on the cock now, but it drives straight so will see if it's livable with until next weekend and pop to national tyres with their voucher for cheap tracking.

Somethings improved though, the steering no longer wobbles with bumps, nor is there a knocking noise from the front end, but I wasn't going fast so cant comment too much, got up to 50 briefly on the bypass but not for many seconds before I had to turn back into the other end of our estate.

Dead now, having a cup of coffee then a long shower!

Still is hot today!

 

Popped to the shops for milk this morning. Did think of going to the car boot or something but I can't afford it, plus the last thing I need is another flipping hoover! So I went the long way to the co-op. And my god it's transformed! Even bigger a transformation than the blue laguna was! The steering no longer shakes about with bumps, next to no noise from the front end on all but the largest holes, steering is alot more direct,and there's less slop! Just got to limp it through this week and I'll get the tracking done as the wheel is on the slight piss now, and it wanders to the left but I've had worse, if it wasn't for the 1000 mile shitefest trip I'd probably not bother, but should probably get it done for then.

 

Did hear the half torn off wheel weight exit stage left on the way though, will cautiously get to 80 tomorrow and see what the crack is, hoping it is fine as I'll need front tyres later in the year, so if it can hang on until then I get them balanced for free*

If it wobbles stick the unbalanced one on the back, you won't feel it as much there.

Good point, although the rear wheels were the fronts on the blue gooner thanks to a wobble... Might have to just get it sorted properly one day

Yep, that was interesting! Kept trying to steer left alot over 50, plus tyre squeal around corners that have never had tyre squeal before even at higher speeds! Dropped it straight into the tyre place by work, will use some shitefest money, it's only £10 more than national tyres even with a code anyway!

The guy looked elated when I said what I'd replaced, so hopefully it'll be ready soon, they looked quiet

Tracking done! Ended up in a 20 minute conversation with a guy who had a Ferrari in for tyres and the bloke who ran the place about our favourite orl modernzz r shit (tyre place matey tried to help out a friend with brake pads on a volvo xc60 on Saturday and failed because it needed a computer to wind the pistons back in.) Bit of banter with the Ferrari owner who was in jeans and a shirt about how my car cost half what one tyre cost but I know which id rather drive and I was away, down the road, in a straight line, with no pull to any direction!

I've done some pre shitefest fettling!

 

First up was the pipe I may have broken a while ago, that comes off the main turbo air intake pipe. So I had it all out

 

SAM_2054.JPG

 

Worryingly the jubilee clip that holds the pipe onto the actual turbo was very loose, the pipe just pulled off so I'm hoping there's some improvement there at the very least! Gave it all a good clean off to get the caked on oil off whilst it was out. It sits under here, but access was good once I was knelt ontop of the engine

 

SAM_2055.JPG

 

Six_Cylinder let me pinch a bit of rubber hose from his dead 75, so I found that out, and dismantled my previous in-situ bodge job fix with brown paper tape, which really was shit

 

SAM_2056.JPG

 

But that wasn't the right size. So I got the hose out, and cut a bit off! It slid over the first bit a treat, then after I cut the broken remains of the flange off the other pipe it slid into there a treat too! It's as if Hozelok knew!

 

SAM_2057.JPG

 

Bound it all tightly in electrical tape just to be safe and re-fitted it all!

 

SAM_2058.JPG

 

And that was about it! Took a few connectors off and sprayed contact cleaner about, cable tied a few cables up, had to move the relay tray out the way to re-fit the air box lid, gave the MAF a little clean off just in case and took Eva into town for some milk to test it, and MY GOD it's faster! It moves forward when the turbo kicks in much better now!  I gained 0.4mpg too despite blazzing it about, which is promising

 

The car rewarded me by ticking over to 120,000 miles as we got to Sainsbury's

 

IMG_20180603_122714.jpg

 

So I rewarded myself by buying some beer

 

IMG_20180603_124712.jpg

 

I was going to give it a good vacuum out, but sat here typing this it's very peaceful at home, next door is out in the garden having lunch, the girl 2 doors up has their baby out playing in the garden so I might sack that idea off until later... Plus Charlie is asleep and fuck waking that up now...

I knew I recognised this reg plate! You followed me down the M40 before you pulled off at the bottom of Stokenchurch hill. I gave you a flash of the hazards but appreciate it's quite an anonymous car I drive.

Also, the simple fact it was a BMW in the inside lane with working indicators was possibly enough to convince you it was all a dream.

It's quite sad when I see a car on the motorway and think "Hmmmm, FV51 on a Laguna.... It's Beko!"

Ha did I really, nice! Yea I wouldn't have noticed you as braking late on the slip so as not to be braking on the inside lane makes the car shake a bit...
