Seeking opinions

Post by Capncol »

I'm thinking of starting a thread with a weekly, fortnightly or even monthly post along the lines of "What's in the workshop this week" for some of the more taxing problems or unusual things I get to see- purely for interest.

I get to work on a wide variety of cars, vans, and boats and could post about some of the problems I come across and their solutions- so this wouldn't generally be 206CC related, but a head gasket is a head gasket, and a wheel bearing is still a wheel bearing, so some things will be similar, and will give you an insight into the fault finding process

Would anyone be interested?
Cheers Col.

When requesting help of a technical nature, please give as much detail of the fault as possible along with details of exact model, engine size & type, gearbox, year, mileage, and any relevant work carried out to try to solve the problem to help us help you.
Better still, put the details in your signature.

Yeah I enjoyed reading them and could relate to the Fiesta spring.
My Sons broke, easy job ended up a right pain trying to compress the spring with 2 compressors, it kept wandering off and not going straight until I borrowed another off a mate

I would be interested.
It gets dull looking at the same thing all the time and some little trick and get outs could help with problems on a 206cc
