    I've had the aircon regassed and it now works fantastically!

    Also changed the clutch fluid, what came out was the colour of modelling clay, the clutch is now squeak free

    Replaced the belt, was a pain but not impossible.

    I ended up using a 14 - 15 mm dual ring spanner, the 14 end on the tensioner, and a 3/8 breaker bar into the 15 end. Made the job much easier!

    I'm a firm believer in looking after cars properly, it saves money in the long run

    Well we've travelled from Northumberland to the Scottish Highlands, 400 miles and have averaged 37.8 with 6 passengers and a full boot. Not bad for a 14 year old
