Re: An odd shape pipe or has it collapsed?

I risk sounding utterly stupid now... There are two twist off caps, one above the radiator reservoir and another just up from this pipe on top of a housing.

Why will photos help?
Because as they say, a picture paints a thousand words, and they will give us a better understanding of the problem.

Re: Suspension mounts

Re: Can dip sticks be wrong?

Alan,

What year is your car, because later models don't have a "real" oil pressure gauge, the early one does.

As for the noise, in the second video, it sounds mor elite a blowing exhaust manifold, rather than a lifter noise?

Not sure what others think?

Thanks.
The whole mirror has fallen ofcincluding clip.
Last time I tried the sticky pads but it fell off.
I will try later
That might be down to the type of pad or glue,

Do you remove the clip from the mirror before fitting it?

Re: Tips for fitting rear view mirror

Your mirror should have a small metal part that sticks to the glass, the last time I fitted one, I used a rear view mirror sticky pad, probably from Halfords, stuck the small metal part to the glass, left it for a day, then just slid the mirror on, simples :lol:
