    Default Fixed my car.. So proud

    Over the last couple of days my Vec has been playing up.
    First fault was the cooling fan running costantly even when stone cold.
    Then it started to misfire when under load (1.8vvti) so i booked it in to the local dealer for today.
    Yesterday i was having a nose under the bonnet when i noticed the loom for the air flow meter had come loose from the clips securing to the air box and was rubbing on the pulley and in fact had cut through one wire and marked the other two
    So some solder and wire later a complete repair and all problems solved

    If i had put the loom clips back in properly after cleaning the K&N it would probably never have happened

    Well done mate, glad you sorted it, although it appears it was your fault anyway. !


    Bye bye Vec B
