Sorry to hear that Hami. Got divorced myself in Jan 2019 (separated since Oct 2013).I've been missing from AO for a few years (getting divorced tends to drive one off-grid :-0). I guess less activity here shows how increasing rare the sight of a 166 is today!
Anyway, i'm hoping to have her taxed and insured as soon as this lock-down is over.
On the to-do list is:
Belts + waterpump
Oil + filter
Heater/aircon/matrix hasn't work properly in 10 years!
Central Locking is toast
Windows and Doors need lubricated
Boot switch in glove compartment not working
Oooh And only have one half melted key (long story)
If anyone has any "easier" or economic fixes for these i'd be grateful
Where's Pomeo ?
Goodness Pomie have you been drinking? You're posting in proper English!Just seen you were parked on the level.
The MAIN DRAIN is in the centre of the car just behind the firewall.
Apparently you can get it from underneath IF you locate the rubber hose bit. I've never been able to locate this from underneath
Goodness Pomie, will you no longer be the King of the 166s?Mustapha bean the bump on the heid when Lucy fell on me last week after a pure condom moment.
Boy was I lucky. That must be my 8 lives used up.
Spent the last two days limbo dancing unner the jack bricks agin doing the front in and oot those dudty blebells that go to the ABS unit and the when finishing I saw the bunnet is no sitting right. nay brakes and Lacey stopped her. BUT looks like a no go.
As the two Ronnies used to say it goodnight from me and goodnight from him. I am hanging up my spanners.
End of the road for me . It's been fun but I need to learn when to call it a day.
Still one pipe to do but each job is getting harder and jist no up to it no more.
Good luck to you all. She has said they have to go and now RELUCTANTLY I caved in. Will still have TIa till next September then it goodnight romeo or is it Pomeo
This got through its NCT (MOT equivalent) retest on Wednesday night.Brought home another 166.
So I'm up to 6 including parts donor and track car.
This is one is a 2000 2.5 Sportronic with 43,000 miles on it.

Did you catch the culprit?
I brought one back unawares from the lockup in a floppy box of Christmas decorations. That was a fun few days...The rodent had chewed through the O/S indicator and O/S ABS speed sensor wires, in it's attempt to get from the engine bay to the scuttle area.
The joys of owning a Jap import, something that has spent time in storage and on a ship.
No other damage was found to the loom, and the mouse has left the building!
