    Default major service done by me today

    hiya all, 4th service has been due for a while, so decided ill do the servicing myself these days, only thing id never done before was the fuel filter and was a little worried about how hard of a job it would be, omg 10 mins done, i bought a tool for removing fuel lines and also one for the lid, which didnt fit haha but used a pair of big pump grips instead, and tbh it came apart really easy, no vice or swearing so all good. so did an oil and filter change air filter ( pollen replaced not long ago ) fuel filter took boost sensor and egr off and cleaned, only nightmare i had was dropping one of the egr gaskets ( twice ) was cold and i couldnt feel my fingers haha may just have a little check of the fuel filter in a few days and check for leaks but all seemed ok after a short drive, all in all a good mornings work,

    Well done mate.

    nice sense of achievement doing it yaself.

    if you want it up in the air and get it all checked out thoroughly underneath drop me a message.

    sonetimes doing it on driveway can miss worn bushes etc that can be seen when on a ramp.

    Thanks buddy really appreciate that, yeah on a driveway ( a snowy driveway) wasn't the best but only had today to do it so just got on with it. and to be honest I was so cold and wet after I'd finished I didn't really look at much else ha tha is again
