The load covers need different boot side trim panels.
You can't just buy a cover and hope it will fit. (Although a posh Sharon would have had the fittings I guess. My poverty Galaxy hasn't.)

I bought one off eBay, discovered it wouldn't fit and it sat in my shed ever since.


Ooh, I am interested as I do indeed have the panels and lugs in place...

In other news, there’s a dash based reset for the trip computer that seems to have cleared the ‘service now’ however, this unearthed a check brake pads warning.

Not sure if they’re low - out and about so not in a position to check properly - or whether they’ve fitted pads without the sensors. It judders like a bastard on hard deceleration so I’m going with new pads as a first point of call.

Also, the emissions light has taken to flashing on and off and the engine is misfirey at low revs so really need to get the flexi done as it won’t be doing much good.

It’s only got to do about 300 miles tomorrow so I don’t foresee* any problem.

Despite being on holiday I did manage to sneak a peek at the pads*

Suffice to say, new ones are already on order.

Fronts are still fine and meaty at least.

Car has also taken to randomly opening windows when stopped or a door opened for extended period.

Two suspects.

1. The control box under passenger seat (can get wet if drains blocked or if the hose to the rear window splits as there’s a join in the hose that runs along the passenger footwell trim).

2. Chafed wiring in the door loom causing short circuitry mayhem.

I’m off work for a fortnight so will for once have time to investigate.
