busy day spannering yesterday
had a busy day yesterday, serviced the 156. New oil, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter and pollen filter. The oil filter was an absolute pig of a yoke to do. It really is buried on the 20v. Its off to get the tracking done today, then next month ill do upper wishbones. (lowers were done before I got it). Ill have to take a look at the rear suspension aswell. What normally goes on them (sportwagon). Ill also change the brake fluid. When changing the pollen filters I noticed a wee switch on the seat - apparently I have heated seats. hahaha.
Its a facelift 156, and Im wondering if there are any bluetooth/ipod solutions available that will allow me keep the original head unit and steering wheel controls.
After not selling the 75 (i wanted to buy a speedster that had come up for sale cheap) i have taken that as a sign that the universe wants me to keep it and make it truly awesome, so I changed the plugs yesterday. That in itself was not enough to make it awesome, so I have also ordered some brake rebuild kits, which should sort out my sticky rear caliper. on the awesomeness scale, working brakes are a big plus!
have a few more plans - i will create a specific thread for that i think.
all in all i enjoyed my day spannering.
Also change oil and filter on an audi diesel, (but that was boring and germanic, and the less said about that the better)
