Re: Driveshaft popped out.

2 year guarantee as well, certainly makes changing a boot a bit pointless. Only 12 quid postage to Croatia as well :shock:

I thought you were going to have a right nightmare getting that back in, possibly involving 2 new boots, glad you got it sorted.

Re: Driveshaft popped out.

Ah, that's a bit clearer, I can see the joint tripod inside the boot and your problem is holding the boot so the tripod can slip through it and go back into the joint. Worryingly, Haynes says you change the inner boot by removing the outer joint, giving the impression that you can't remove the inner...

Re: Driveshaft popped out.

Is the black stuff grease or did it turn itself inside-out, erm, somehow? I'd say shove it back in but I've no idea what's going on with the clip. Is that the inside of the UJ? If it is the clip has stretched or broken.

It's set in the ecu. I dunno, belt jumped a tooth, dropped a valve, endless possibilities.

Re: Catastrophic power steering failure

Yes, more likely to be a ruptured line. Not cheap at all from the dealer's so you'd probably be better off at the breaker's.

Re: Is it too late for a change?

I have heard of people doing such things and making a success of it, although the pay takes a bit of a dip they don't feel like they're slogging their life away doing something they hate. I suspect only time will tell, I don't even know how Virus McVirusface affects this sort of thing, hopefully the...

Re: Engine change

I'm not really up with swapping engines but.. Is it possible? Well, you could fit a jet engine in there, that's possible :shock: Is it easy though, that's another question. It might help to know some details, 406 TDi what? 2.1 or 1.9? What was in the Berlingo? Earlier Berlingos were fitted with the ...

Re: Server Migration and Clean up

There was but I suspect it was when you were mid-process, I got some sort of error message instead. Anyway, as you can see, the last message went through fine :wink:

Oooh, Ad Blocker detected, that's the first time I've seen that here - would it help if I disabled it for the 406oc?

Oh yes, and note the rock hard high performance suspension and indicator delete (to attract BMW owners) packages, it's a real pussy magnate! Could be yours for a mere $40,000.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Of course there are people who would stoop that low, some would do it only just so you no longer had the cat. Although I reckon you should picture some little old lady who lives a few streets away who's been feeding him tasty treats for a while and now he's decided to move in there permanent like. C...

Re: Brake servicing - copper slip rant

Now you come to mention it, copper slip was never much cop but I just assumed it was a good as you're going to get, seeing where it's used. And thinking about it, in all the mechanic/diagnostic stuff I watch on the toob of ewe I don't even see it, it's all brake specific stuff (that I don't have a g...
