Oooooo the Fourm Sensing is getting clever, it now detects "s h i t r e a c t i v e" thats clever eh!!
Anyway, picked my car up today from mums and bought it home. In the boot was the offending item..
You can just see the nick hole to the top right by the green seal, the corrosion has eaten it away in a strange way.
STUPID IDEA hydractive! Lucky S1 XM dont have this stupid idea....
So, another one for Jim to repair.
Im happy to say fitted the V6 Electrovalve has NOT encouraged a sinking rear end, and she stays up.
However, Im a little dis-certive. on the drive home today, I noticed a little MORE vibration comming into the car then there used at be at 70mph, and more so when I accellerate at this speed.
Dont like it, not looked at why, but If I cant find it, her days will still be numbered as I prepare to get an XM Auto TD ready instead.. we shall see how it pans out. Im certain I tightend everything up. Im sure the "Metal Tube" was on the gearbox mount spigot too... hmmm... theres just something bugging me I cant quite place it. Not as quiet as she was before..
