    Default What a waste of time!..

    I intended servicing the car today which turned out to be the biggest waste of time ever!..

    Some ****ing idiot has rounded off the torx screws on the engine cover so I cant get it off! That means I cant get to the glow plugs or oil filter! Im guessing the same ****ing idiot has over tightened the sump bolt and that wont come undone either!! Ive shattered a torx socket and ******ed a ratchet tring! So all Ive actually achieved is changing the air and pollen filters!

    So it wouldn't bother you then if you came across this when all geared up to do the job!!, I'd certainly feel the same as BigDave1701 and it's not a case of growing up and child like, it's damn annoying when it happens ; why is it some people are so high and mighty or at least they think they are!!
    Cheers Pete

    Thats a bit much m8, I dont think he's acting like a child, he's just peeved of cos of the torx screws being rounded off, I take it your extra mature who never gets peeved off.

    first time i serviced the cdti was an absolute mare, (bear in mind i bought with FVSH)

    fuel filter housing was solid as was the oil filter (pain in the backside to get to on a cdti too it seemed like every nut and bolt had been put on with someone with a complete hatred of torque settings
