Knock Sensor playing

After many guesses on hesitation at low rpm, the scanner revealed it was a faulty Knock sensor creating the jerking at low speed and gear box shunts going down hill... Big job to change as many things have to be removed from the top to get access to it...
But at US 10/hour labour , I cannot really complain...
Also , AC fault turned out to be worn rubber and gasket on compressor
so changed those and AC is hunky dory now...
These are the last jobs on the 166 [ God willing] and she'll be sorted finally..
I will then turn on the tuning side with exhaust, new rubber,uprated brakes and suspension....What a lot of fun
PS: I'll post photos once the rear spoiler is in place
