Over a month without an update here and frankly that's because there hasn't been a huge amount going on, no cars have entered or left the fleet since April (Something of a record for me) progress on the ones that are here is as follows...
Clutch died on Wednesday!
Mrs Eunos mentioned it felt 'Funny' to drive and after a road test it became clear that it was slipping to the point the car was barely driveable in 4th and 5th. Bad times but luckily I had a LUK clutch kit in the loft that I'd spotted on an Ebay auction and won for £26 about a year and a half ago (Rude not to at that money and I was pleased to have it in the circumstances)
The clutch was a bastard of a job, I started it on the drive and after about six hours I gave up and, wait for it.... had to call a local mobile mechanic to help me with the last bits! I felt immense shame about this at the time and I'm still fairly embarrassed about now but no matter what I did I couldn't get the gearbox into position and back on single handed
Unfortunately no pics of this process as it was a rushed/panic filled affair TBH. Either way the car is now sorted and was back on the road within 24 hours of the troubles being reported so all's well that ends well.
Central locking module on the front passenger side is still borked, £16 Ebay special module is in the shed waiting to go on but until the weather warms up a bit this will be left 'as is'. Otherwise uneventful and providing reliable, albeit noisy and slow transport.
Had new headlight wiper blades on Friday as the old ones looked like this...
A pair of new blades came in at a tenner IIRC which seemed worth it if only to improve the car on an aesthetic level, the front end's now looking much nicer with the new blades fitted...
Today we took it out on a 100 mile round trip to visit the High Force waterfall and stopped to take this 'scenic background' snap en route
It's on longer family day trips/adventures that the 940 really shines and as a comfortable long distance tourer it's hard to beat.
