Well done Hamish, changed my clutch at 75.000, started getting a bit stiff to get into 1st.

Certainly made it feel better, dont forget to check for a seized, clutch arm, if you get it done.

My a/c works but not as cold as it was, had it re-gassed 4 years ago, so cant complain.

I'm going to explain the MOT process in Spain - Took my Astra yesterday

Get to the main MOT center , its a big warehouse with 5 lanes ( extra 2 for artics ). Go into the office and provide them with the car papers , pay 38 euros and your given a lane number.

Wait for the lane number to appear on the massive LED screen outside. Go to the lane number and your greeted by a unhappy Spaniard.

1st- oil check and fluids.
2nd- lights , indicators ,full beam , light alignment.
3rd - Check the chassis number matches ( under the passengers plastic door thing )
4th - Rear lights , indicators , brake lights , reverse light.
5th - Seatbelt check all round
6th - drive into a metal grid where they basically bounce the car up and down and side to side to check the front and rear suspensions okay
7th - rolling road to check brakes , handbrake
8th- emissions test - rev to 2000RPM
9th - Drive out - this takes less than 10 minutes! wait for the person to arrive back with the papers and a new ITV ( MOT ) sticker to place in the front window

Mot

Took the Mrs for her yearly MOT, as I expected there were no problems.
I got one advisory for a little extra travel in the hand break. All sorted now.

Cheers Pete it's only when i have been driving the car for more than 45 minutes or it is a hot day i have to use a little bit of force to get her in gear. According to the paper work i have the clutch was replaced in 2010 so that should be ok. I had the A/C re-gassed about two months ago worked great for a couple of weeks then stoped putting out cold air so most likely is a leak somewhere?.

Took the zed for its mot today and it sailed through with only one advisory on a worn inner front tyre, happy days! All the recent expense and effort was worthwhile

Well done.

Put two Hankooks on the front, had a 4 way alignment check, after getting it back to the o/e settings, the guy said it would wear the front two inner shoulders. Due to the factory set up!!!

So maybe a front to rear swap at some time to lessen the wear.

Thats my one done and dusted.

I use Halfords Autocentres, I know a lot dont rate them, but I never have any probs.

Only thing you have to watch is that they emailed me a reminder, and offered a special price of 35. But I know if you go online you get it for 1/2 price, so booked in for 27.42.

On the day, they reckoned the o/s/r number plate bulb was out, issued a fail and fitted a new one and issued a pass. 10 extra so they got 37.42 in the end, but I was happy at that.
