    The car has developed a knock from the front suspension, mainly when turning right at slow speed. Suspect a bottom ball joint or the infamous subframe knock... either way ive got the bolt kit to resolve the subframe knock and will get the bottom ball joints assessed unless anyone has any other ideas.

    Subframe spacer kit has arrived, there is a good chance this resolves the knocked noise I have. It seems a common problem with the subframe moving slightly.

    Hopefully get them installed in the next few days... if it ever stops raining...

  7. no banning he is building suspense for his new sheep skin seat covers to make @Legojon envious.

    Or more likely there is a upgrade to engine power on the way

    Sheep skin seat covers...? I like the sound of that!

    It’s likely to be some prep work for the latter... I’ll leave it at that for now...

    Basically the temp LED is always on? Only half light I would suggest, but it’s always there? Even when the cars turned off?

    Does it go up to 90 and stay there? You checked your coolant level?
