    Default Leak, front end creak, refurb, bent locking wheel key and another leak =(

    Well i'm currently having so much fun enjoying the Vec.

    Few weeks back posted in a thread regarding water in the spare wheel well. After thought of condensation. Cleaned it all out. Check it today to find more water. All water seemed to be coming from one location.

    Water didnt seem to go any higher than this point. Not really sure what this point is. So any ideas or help would be brilliant.

    I went to my local garage yesterday regarding a front end creak, only had a similar problem around 6-8 months ago. After they had finished messing about. It was the ARB Bush, they decided after replacing the drop links, front lower suspension arms and rear trailing arms. So much fun. They duggested it could be any of the above again.

    They also went through the crap of the whole subframe needs dropping for the arb bush's. Thanks to the howto on here just printed it off for them. :-)

    Now the creak is back. I just dont trust them and can see my buying the whole lot again. Although I did get an advisory on my mot,

    002 (Both tie rods) Ball joint has slight play [2.2.B.1f]

    On a better note, after a fellow member of staff "moving" my car decided to rip my alloy along a brick wall. I got them refurbed. I will get pictures once I have cleaned the car.

    Sadly they told me to tighten the locking wheel nuts after 100 miles or so. Attempted it today and bent the ****** key. Spent 3 hours pulling the house apart looking for the box and card. Good news found it :-)

    Now for the last leak. I thought I would have a look at the arb bushes, as last time it was discovered to be the fault by undoing the drop links and pushing the arb in one direction, basically heard it sqeak. Put car in full lock went to have a look and ended up with oil substance all over my arm.

    I only rubbed it along the front lower suspeonsion arm. I am really hoping it isnt oil. But would be my luck. So never managed to check them

    Anyone in the nottingham area fancy taking a look for me. Atm i'd trust you guys more than any local garage or myself for that matter.
