    Default What Faults You Had Recently

    Here we go my two last and only ones to date from having car.
    1.Expansion bottle top split and left black piece stuck in top of it. ( Parts lad said this had happened a lot recently)
    2. This week passenger wiper connecting rod decided to part company where it mounts onto conecting rod for drivers window wiper so this is second trip to vauxhall when I get home next weekend(This pushed back on but getting new one as its worn slightly and do not want it happening again)

    I've had a pretty bad month for niggling things happening

    Clutch has started to slip
    Steering has developed a clunk when turning stationary
    There is a quick wiff of burning when the heater first comes on
    There is a wheel bearing on it's way out
