Hmm..... NOT unrelenting gloom ๐Ÿค”

My 'local' garage [round the corner] is booked out for two weeks (... yes, popular!) he has, of course, an overflow M8 [perhaps at a %..] who can do it Wed ๐Ÿ‘ = ยฃ80 Inc Bearing. He is 50yds along the road and no more a brisk trot from my house.

Opens up @7AM... I will empty the car of all valuables... ๐Ÿค

As I had the BACK up.... I whipped round and put the FRONT up! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

I think my 'dogbone' has signs of distress...

Incidentally, as I was lying on my back >> but not where I am for oil changes >> I spotted the drain plug in the Auto box bottom tray.

Not all autos have this and it makes the 'drain/refill three times' *slosh out/rinse much simpler....ย 

*Though, with oil cooler tranny rubber pipes it's even easier to chop and drain whilst in tickover โœ”๏ธ

Ver 2 of my 'dog bone' gel filled.

I have placed a slice of hi density 'cabinet doorseal' foam onto the centre knuckle... We will see if a 'smidge of give' will remove the harsh vibration when stopped/ingear.

The piccy shows where it is [entombed in the gel].....
