I called Jim and he said he'd pop over to lend some moral support, so imaging my disappointment when Chris turned up instead ;)
About 4 years later, Jim finally turned up, despite having a shorter distance to travel, which either means Jim's a slow driver, or Chris is rather heavy with his right foot :D
Chris also brought Liam to complete the set.
We had a cup of tea and I dived under Juliet to complete the task of removing the broken pipe.
With Chris handing me tools as and when I needed them, I made short work of the task and the pipe was free, well, free but still in situe.
In trying to navigate it out from the wheel arch, it snapped in two which made things much easier.
While I was doing that, Liam and Chris swapped over Jenny's bonnet with an undamaged one (Jenny's original had a stone chip about the size of 1p right at the tip).
Thank you so much guys for your help today, it made such a difference! :)
Was good to surprise you ;) I'd told jim to tell me if he went and i'd pop along to do any of the heavy stuff. Not really my fault a 110 HDi goes like stink round the MK grid system ;)

Martin will soon see you right with that pipe.

Yep, the MK grid system stinks :twisted: I'm not a fan and in my humble it's best negotiated with a car having an automatic gearbox :)

Good to see you and your new residence today Chris :-D

I find it much better if you think of it as a rally course :)

I keep forgetting you have those dangerous leather seats. If you drove like me you'd either end up in the passenger seat, or maybe even slipping into the back seats! :D

V6 maybe Xac as those seats have those silly airbags but the XM and Activa have figure-hugging adjustable bolsters. You'd never slip out of those...

So S2 Exclusives dont have the adjustable bolters like my S1?

Nope. The seats are inferior Chris.
