feeling quite pleased with myself as i've just serviced my diesel GT for the first time
oil filter, 5L of selenia 5w40, fuel filter, air filter, sump plug washer....£75 delivered from shop4parts.
I used the how to guide which is a sticky. Fuel filter was easy. Sump plug was very tight and i started to panic ...bit of WD40 and an extension bar on the 8mm hex key and off she came. Thankfully the threads look fine and no rounding on the sump plug. Sorted the oil and did the air filter which gives plenty of time to watch for seeping.
Bit of a puzzle with the air filter and TBH took ages trying to figure it out, but after removing the fuse box, the whole air box comes off its mounts which gives enough room to slide out the panel filter.
Obviously doing it all the first time takes ages as i'm not mechanically minded but got bags of enthusiasm and willing to have a go! even getting it on axle stands and sliding underneath was a bit of intimidating! next time i'll do it in a fraction of the time, but the best bit ....
...i know its all been done properly, no threaded sump or any other nasty surprises
now where's that guide on how to change wishbones?
