  1. Lol I was just about to say about the silver ties. Re door protectors I wouldn’t as I’ve owned a few car in the past that the previous ownershad fitted them to. The paint underneath them was wrecked. I think water creeps underneath them over time and causes corrosion.
  2. No worries, I found the page where I changed them, you can see the difference:
  3. Re hand brake I had the same problem on my S80, a kind soul on here recommend replacing the return springs. It was like night and day and not something I would have thought about.
  4. Yep, I watched some videos on YouTube and they all said you need the special pliers. They look like a giant pair of circlip pliers. I’ll change the seal and stick them back on ebay for a £5 less and hope for the best.
  5. Speaking of washing machines, something has taken a chunk out of mine’s front door seal. I noticed it today when one do the kids told me the machine was “having a wee”. The new seal is ~£20 which isn’t too bad, however the special pliers to get the spring ring off are over £30!
  6. Tie wraps for the top pulley(s) and then a piece of cardboard folded over to hold it against the crank pulley. Makes it much easier.
  7. Great job, I use tie wraps to hold the belt on when changing. A lot easier to loop round the pulley than tape and you just clip them off with side cutters when finished.
  8. I know it’s not ideal and I’m not sure of the car’s value. But would it be worth going through their insurance? Assuming the premium increase over the next X years will be less than the car’s value?
  9. Condolences to his family. I’ve met both him and Reb separately and never realised the connection. Richard was fantastic guy, I remember when I has having problems with my Volvo and he offered to drive to my house (about a 60 mile round trip) to lend me his diag sw. He’ll be missed
  10. Anyone got the story behind it? I’m assuming it’s from a marine diesel?
  11. Same here I like the 940 but what happens if your commute suddenly changes?
  12. Is there something wrong with your V70? I thought most people on here were getting 50mpg+ from them? I’m just interested as I’ve always fancied a V70 D5 on the basis is was a comfy economical cruiser. Is that figure from the trip computer or calculated?
