Self preservation

From the moment I chose to drive an older vehicle, I chose to accept that there may be a degree of maintenance required beyond that of checking air, water and oil between services.

Last week the inevitable hit and hit in triplicate.

  • Clock started running backwards
  • Driver side window stopped winding
  • A minor rattle is now a missing disc break cover

Also, though not really a problem with the car per se, I can’t get the bloody wheels off!

It has been a long time since I had to really maintain a car and I have realised that the tools I have collected over a number of years of home improvement are really not suitable.
