    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRI With a few added extras

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 120

    Year : 06

    Default

    Know the feeling. Yesterday the wife was off to uni when the car wouldn't do squat. Thought the battery was gone, so jumped it, got in to run her to the train... no electrics and NO power steering! One heavy mother the estate!!

    No Alternator, totally kaput, lovely!!! Strained my back leaning over getting the sumbiatch out (1.9/120), *just* too late to get it to a autoelectricians to check the cost of a refurb for me, so I have to drive round in a f*rd shopping trolley until at least Wednesday, dammit.

    **** does indeed happen

    hey bro - try and chill out - your right **** happens, take it on the chin and recoup your loss slowly...i.e sort the air con out in a couple of months when the weather gets really hot.....hopefully (he says!) lol...

    have a couple of beers and chill me old mate - nothing you can do about it now

    Sorry that is a bad day. But it could be worse, you could have crashed or anything.....

    Also, (and check with others, because I am not sure) if you are not going to fix the aircon, try and seal the puncture with glue or something, not to fix it, but to prevent the damp getting in the system which can destroy seals. That way when you can afford a condesor, the system still is in good shape...
