    hi all quick update, phoned uncle arnold services and told them that i has loss of power and the actuator bar has came off the swirl valves, and asked them is it covered by my 2 year auto care waranty. We need to see it first before we can decide but i have just told you what the problem is so the car is booked in for next thurday it's the soonest they had. Can anyone confirm this being done under waranty, went to start car this morning and it shuddered and a billow of white smoke came from the exhaust but it drove fine appart from the lack of power and starting her up again for the journey home it didnt judder this time and no smoke. Dont fancy driving it a week like this, i know some of you have covered many miles with the bar off. When i got home i set about geting the bar back onto the swirls nipples, ive heard its a fiddly job and takes a good bit of time to get it back on, but had a brain wave moved all of the nipples to the same position as swirl 3 placed the bar back in moved it so it was sitting upright used a chopstick in the hole on the bar and positioned it over the nipples and pushed each one home with a screwdriver took 2 min very easy only thing is there is forward and back motion on the bar as the holes have worn slightly or is this normal, took it for a spin and power has been restored don't know how long it will last but hopefully it will be fixed thurday.

    You might want to pop the bar off again just before you go to the garage since it's Arnold Clark and they may just fob you off that they could find nothing wrong!!!.
