I've just started dropping my daughter off at school which means more M way mileage and I can get over 42. I suspect if I tried hard I could get over 40 - but I tend not to hang a...

Re: Water ingress into rear door

specy, search the forum for failed electric windows - you'll see the problems cause by the seals and the after effects - the window motor usually goes and its a £ 300 dealer fix.

Re: Timing belt service

Petsco,

No comment on timing of the timing belt replacement - have 11/03 1.6 and that was done after 40 months following dephaser failure - otherwise it should have been 5 years. Don't forget that the work is a nice juicy job for a dealership with their inflated rates.

Re: Leaky exhaust....

Brian, Have Nov 2003 Dynamique - just before both 2008 and 2009 MoT's I've checked the exhaust to note rust/holes around the back box seams - lower seam weld right at the rear - and the car is parked on a slight decline - so its the opposite to where you may think. Solution: £ 5 tube of plastic padd...
