    Default what a weekend...........

    Hello all, how was your weekend?

    Mine was fine til sunday night 9pm.

    Decided to drive down to the chinese. Come out of the chinese to drive home. Start the car. Move about 2 inches forward and it stalls.

    Try again and again, all i hear is a clicking type noise. One bonus, i just happen to block the entrance to the police station. wooops

    AA came out around 10:30, said it looks like the starter motor. Great news... NOT! but after a few attempts and the guy tapping what looked like the front of the engine with a metal bar, " yes i have no idea" The car started. Wow.

    Drove it to my local garage. About 200 yards away and phoned them this morning.

    The guys at the garage are very good friends. Asked them to mot while they were there. Checked the car over, and did tech2, said its all ok, but battery a little low. Car started perfectly fine apart from once, when it clicked. No idea again.

    Got home to fetch it, one of the guys asks what I had done. Me looking all puzzled questioned him. Turns out i have now two nice dents in my driveres side wing. one just below the other.

    Lucky for me i know who did it, i heard them saturday night, but did realise what they had done.

    My weekend rant over :-)

    On a plus side it passed its mot with two advisorys.

    Rear reflectors faded in colour. Wooooops. I dont think they are that dark.
    and
    (Both tie rods) Ball joint has slight play. (2.2.B.1f). I have no idea.



    They towed me to my local garage, w

    Oh no !!! Glad it sarted ok though ! Sometime, if a starter sticks and you tap it with something, it releases. Always kept a bar in the boot of my old Escort for the same reason lol!

    Cant believe the dents !
