Get an engine, put it in the one for the mot, then swap it out... ?

I jump started a customers car the other day... Using a Jump Pack (battery pack) I put the Red Jump Lead on the Red terminal on the battery and the Black Jump lead on the Black terminal of the battery - Something I have done hundreds of times before with different cars.

This time however I blew multiple fuses, destroyed the sunroof motor and fried the ATC panel.

Turns out on *THIS* car, Red = Negative and Black = Positive.

So... now spending my free time cleaning that mess up ready for the customer to collect next week!

I agree the forums are far superior when filtering the right answers and finding information. Facebook is too convenient and aimed at the younger generation which can be lazy or ill informed. We will keep both running just to stay out there. As things stand it will be quiet as we are losing too many zeds to breakers and greed. But yes itíll come back around.

Get luck in your hunt Blair.

Sam sorry to hear of your woes, cars eh!

My S6 had its rear screen smashed last weekend, pissed me right off! Trying to sell it too. Considered breaking it, thatís how fed up I am with it.

Still my ZS is coming along, worked on every weekend.

Its interesting to hear your impression of Facebook Mick... My (much) younger siblings (half brothers) and my Sisters children view Facebook as an "Old Person's Site" and only use it to keep in contact with their older relatives. As I understand it, this is the current view from most people of that generation, hence why Facebook are trying to make big changes to try and pull them back.

I believe, instagram and snap chat are the young person's choice these days (probably others as well!)

Facheache with their enforced algorithms, in ability to display the posts in a chronological order anymore, ads, suggested posts and all that crap has turned a lot of people off - but it does better for somethings than twitter, Instagram & snap with the groups, events & chat being inbuilt.

But it isn't the "young" platform it once was.... It's kinda turning a bit into myspace in that respect! (Google killed off G+ in April)

As said though, I find that faceache just doesn't hold the info/knowledge that a forum does - I'm sure you can get in contact with people and DM them to have a chat, but people don't tend to share the lessons sides of things out. so I for one and very glad this place is still here - who knows soon I might be able to actually share summit about the ZS as well

I see where you are coming from. I only see the tripe posted on FB and people asking questions and getting flamed. Some groups are a bit clicky. Iím only using it to gain some interest for newer members. Personally Iím on it to stay in touch with family and old friends. Took me ages to get back on it and use it.

I agree, much prefer forums over Facebook. Too many trolls, repetive posts, dirty washing being hung out, multiple groups, and so on.

Bring back the good old days.

I still keep looking for another ZS lol......if one catches my eye, you never know.
