As mentioned the other week, the aircon on the 147 has gone, where the fan cowling has cut thru the rubber on the low-pressure return hose.
Wasn't a massive problem as the car isn't being used too much right now. However, we're going to France for 2 weeks tomorrow night, and were supposed to be going on the bike. The problem is, tho, that the bike was in for some pretty major suspension work, and the parts only arrived on Friday, so there's no chance it'll be finished in time for the trip.
Booked the car onto the ferry, but now have the problem of the broken aircon, as i don't fancy driving about France in 30+ temperatures, in what amounts to a mobile greenhouse.
One chopped up drinks can, jubilee clip and some instant-gasket later, it seems to be holding pressure. At least it was last night. I'll check it again this evening, and see if it's still all cool.
