Not the circlip'd in diff causing problems is it? Maybe some play or something. Though that said the circlips generally pop out and you lose drive altogether.
And yeah subframe off job for the box, be careful not to strip the fixings for the bolts in the body that's a total nightmare

Its done some miles since master SIAB picked it up for me, and appears to be at its worst when turning left and under power.

Whether its stripped teeth, or circlip shenanigry I do not know. I do know it has some drive though.

I'll be reading up over the weekend:)

If you decide that this is not worthwhile making the journey North, I would like to relieve you of the responsibility and the Clio of it's engine for a transplant to my Cabby Megane.

Flying is a bit austentatious I thought you'd be on the £1 overnight mega bus.

I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!

If we had planned this correctly, then Neil could be driving up to Scotland behind the AA man in something that he has just purchased from Cannock.

I am in the car currently driving up to Edinburgh with the family. I could have picked it up and brought it North.

320 touring is somewhere dodging trucks on the northbound side of the M6

 

We (320 touring, Chaseracer, myself) had breakfast at the Trucker's rest and a look around Cannock auctions (complete lack of decent chod) before the departure.

As an SOS has not been received on WhatsApp then I am believing that all is well*

Ahh, where did we get to?

We left pictureskew Silica Bovine

IMG_20170916_073132.jpg

And soon were preparing to land in the jewel* of the Midlands
IMG_20170916_074023.jpg

I was greeted by tame shiter Sloth in a Bowl for onwards conveyance.

But not before I got a pic of the spectacular roof
IMG_20170916_080343.jpg

Then to the only appropriate veehickle for such a collection

IMG_20170916_081119.jpg

And out into the wilds of the Midlands

The next stage was to sojourn to the garage that the Clio was billeted at.

Initial inspections were promising..

At this point, young Mr Chaseracer arrived with the key..

Once it was established that it unlocked remotely and started happily off the key, we got down to the SRS BIZZNIZ.
