  7. The batteries you get (or used to) at Kwik-Fit were 2 in 1. round normal posts,but if you levered them off, they had the Ford square posts underneath. I'm sure they were Exide batteries.

  16. The 1.4 is the TU engine, so the manifolds at the front, 3 nuts, 1 allen key into the gearbox,and the rest is easy. Good point about not using sealer before the CAT though!

  21. I remember seeing a 2.9 VR6 engined Lupo at a car show once, looked factory too, but it was mm perfect! Found a pic... This is the same as my car, wonderful to work on-loads of room, but never needs anything! Today I worked on an A3 3.2 V6 Quattro. I had to use a funnel to top up the brake fluid!,but even that was more accessible than a clio resovoir
