Lots of things to do this weekend, not a lot actually achieved.
1. Oil change - I failed dismally to remove the sump plug. Any tricks? I had visions of destroying the sump, so stopped after I managed to shear one hex adapter. Any ideas? Pay someone to deal with it?
2. Brake pads. Measured the discs whilst I was at it, and they're at the wear limit, so need replacing. Before I attempt the job, is there anything to watch out for?
3. Exhaust has cracked somewhere in the triangular box. Looks as if the mountings are too soft, causing it to crack where the backbox connects. Has anyone else had this problem? Looks like another mount could be added between the back box and the triangular box that would help reduce this problem. Looks like I need a new cat-back system before the MOT
. Bit of a pain because cracks aside, the system is relatively new and in good condition.
4. Changed spark plus without too much drama (other than finding two plug holes full of oil - cracked cam cover, see wanted section).
Sorry for the essay,
