Re: Possible humour.

Donald Trump is walking along in the White House grounds when suddenly a lone gunman pops up and aims at the President. The Secret Service Agent is on his first day, doesn't know what to do, then takes a deep breath and shouts: "Mickey Mouse!" The gunman is startled, panics, and is easily overpowere...

Re: Engine system fault Xmas tree light cluster

Do you make a note of the codes? Some of the code readers can't delve that deep into all the ECU's - but I'd have thought a recovery company would have one that would. If you get the codes read then in theory it will point you in the right direction - but you have to know the order of the codes as s...

Re: Engine system fault Xmas tree light cluster

In all honesty, you need to get the codes read because anything else would be pure guess work!

Find someone with an IID tool or similar- depending where you are, Bodsy does get about a fair bit (normally anyway!)

Re: Please Help!!! EPB conundrum and MOT approaching.

Re: Please Help!!! EPB conundrum and MOT approaching.

Have you re calibrated it? I.e been through the setup routine exactly as described in Bodsy's break bible? Set up correctly with a good actuator they work perfectly. If it squeals its gone past the point it should do. And despite being reputable, it could be a knacked one!

Re: Possible humour.

I was reading an article last night about fathers and sons and memories came flooding back of the time I took my son out for his first pint. Off we went to our local which is only two blocks from the house. I got him a Fosters, he didn't like it – so I had it. Then I got him a Carling Black Label, h...
