Odd things today
Popped down to Autolusso this morning to have the hood looked at, as much also just to meet Laurence for future works.
Laurence managed to get the hood to seal properly but only by doing the manual lock, it needed a hell of a push but it's sealed.
I have booked it in for a proper look later.
On the way back from Ferndown I stopped off and did a bit of shopping, came back to car and couldn't open the boot with he key fob then tried unlocking the car and nothing at all, I manually unlocked the drivers door and that set th alarm off, put key fob into slot and all was fine again, absolutely no idea what happened, hopefully it's just a do do do do Halloween trick but deep down i know it's likely to come back and haunt me.
The other happening is more of a concern, coming back the brakes become more and more juddery, much worse at high speeds but hardly noticeable in town traffic, they could have been like it for a while and I just hadn't noticed as most of my driving is in local traffic.
I wished I had noticed it before I went to Autolusso but all seemed fine on way there.
Nothing was picked up on a recent mot so I'm wondering if something has come loose or has broken.
As for Autolusso, I can see why they are so highly regarded, I now feel I have someone who cares and I can trust, just a shame they are not local to me but still the car will get a run every now and then.
