    Default The Cars Crunching in Reverse the Mrs Say's !!!

    The Mrs gets home tonight & im on the drive talking to the next door neighbour. As she pops it into reverse I hear the deep Crunch/bang, She reverses a little , then pulls forward to adjust & then reverse's again with another Crunch Bang


    Did you hear that she says Hmm i said, Are you pressing the clutch in properly ? Yes, She says, My foot won't go down any further

    So i jump in , Slide the seat back so that i can get my Knee's in (She's only small!!) Try to replicate it & Can't.
    So i go for a drive & instantly i realise what is wrong !!! After wondering why my head is almost touching the roof lining !!

    ?. Have you jacked the seat up Dear ? Erm, Yes, ?. Have you driven the Car with those Flat sandles before Dear ?. Erm. No..

    So to reach the pedals Normally, She has the seat pushed right forward, She has now jacked it up higher, therfore increasing the distance for her leg to travel ! Which in the short term means A Blinkin Crunching Gearbox Blimey, You try & educate, By saying, "if the Box is crunching, Something is wrong & it's trying to tell you something is wrong" !!
    I give up, I fitted reversing Sensors the other day to help her & Sherman get along, Now she's intent on Destroying it

    I fitted reversing sensors to my last car and the wife drove into a wall.. it was my fault for not telling her when the sensors constantly beep it means there's something right behind you and you should then stop...
