    Default Good News, Bad News!

    Well i'm chuffed as I just completed my gearbox oil change today, which went really smoothly. I had to remove the battery box as on the 2.8 the turbo is on the side of the engine next to the battery and there is no way of getting to the fill plug without removing the box. Also glad I noticed a breather hose had popped of its fitting that connects to some sort of pump on the gearbox before refitting it all, as I would have had to take it all out again. Now for the bad news, when I was getting under the car I noticed the passengers side fog light is cracked and will need replacing. any body Know roughly how much they are and a part number.

    Cheers

    Howard

    Just been looking and there are loads of pre face ones but not facelift jobbies. Are the universal ones ok?
