I’ve never spent on a taxi in my life , and don’t intent to start now.

I've used a taxi twice in my life. 50% of those trips I refused to pay as the driving was that dangerous.

Swapped a few fuses over this morning and have a few things I fucked back running, but cannot get into these two surrounded by this plastic yellow thing out. As my expertise ends basically here , anyone any ideas :D I can't get a proper grip on the fuses as they're embedded in this thing and it won't pop out itself

Have you checked the underside of the fuse box cover for some of those little plastic plier type things? I always forget...

Without looking i couldnt tell you what model, whether it went while she was driving was going to be the next question with her I just got told it wouldn't start, I'm literally in the job as far as replacing the belt for her so it starts, anything from there ahhhhmmmm ooottttt I don't fancy sorting head gaskets or at worst engine replacement


Spoke to her last night and she drove it a couple of miles home after the belt had gone, Ive prepared her for the worst

You've got a merc in a body shop and you wont pay for a taxi, you'd rather walk for 90 mins!

Does not compute.

That looks like what’s known as a Transit fuse, one which can be pulled to cut power to various circuits which would otherwise drain a battery over an extended period of time, but can be reinstated by simply pushing the yellow assembly back into the board.
It should come out as a complete unit then the fuses can be replaced independently if needed.

Edit, when Gareth arrived he said Sally at the Funeral Directors described me as a blunt Yorkshire man.

Which is a fair description except I'm a mile and a half on the Lancashire side.

 

I get this all the time myself. Must be our proximity to t'other side.

Well I did the car collection, it’s sleeting here at the moment so I didn’t walk. I drove down in the 2cv, picked up the Mercedes drove home and then cycled back to pick up the 2cv.

Car looks very shiny ( full machine polish and wax £225), and the nearside wing looks new ( repair and paint £325).

E ( which was being glued back as I arrived as the da polished had snagged it). The SEC were already out of budget when I bought this one nearly 7 years ago. I do like it which is why I’m happy to pay to keep it smart.
This morning they had a w126 s class outside having a new rear window fitted, two w123 estates in the middle of being painted and an Aston Martin vantage having a bumper painted. Inside was a Rover p5b coupe having a full repaint alongside w111 SEb coupe. They know their stuff and are booked up for two months.

That looks great. If I'd seen this post earlier, I would have come over and run you there in my 2CV. I took mine for a spin earlier, just to make sure it's OK. Of course, it's now sitting outside in the pouring rain :(

I got told the only thing tighter than a Scotsman was a Yorkshireman (whilst I was attempting to get a better discount). It was a proud moment :)

Thanks, I managed although I can’t say I like cycling in sleet!

My 2cv is in the barn drying. We’ve just got power back after being off three hours which was getting a tad annoying.

In 2cv repair news, I’ve fitted a new indicator relay from ecas. The old one had been sticking on until tapped. New one fine, but modern and works differently- original flashed the lights on instantly then off etc, this new one starts with the off then on.

I wear glasses to drive at night, I have forgotten to bring them with me, I'm on my way home from Pembrokeshire, progress has been slow. Fortunately I have now reached civilisation and a lit road, but probably won't be able to speed up as the cross winds are chucking the Micra hire car about there's also a lot of standing water on the roads. Just stopped for something to eat and drink, but the closest I could get to food has been an horrendously expensive sandwich at Swansea services. I should really have broken into what I am sure is a food hamper in my Christmas presents in the car.
