Update

Flushed brake fluid
Fixed windscreen washers (temporary for mot)
Refilled front diff.
Air filter replaced

MOT COMPLETED:
Failed on

emissions (expected as I couldn’t get the de-cat pipe off)
Front light beam dip
Handbrake cable efficiency low.

Not bad! Easy fix on the whole

New issues:
Central locking not working - won’t lock...

Passed its MOT! Yippeee

Only took re-fitting the CAT (duh! smile
Tightening the hand brake cable smile
Polishing the headlights (lots!)

Really impressed!

Oh and fixed the central locking issue too (fuse needed reseating!)

Fitted upgraded bonnet gas struts (series 2 with the locking system) and completed my first oil change.

Couldn’t figure out why the previous owner used self tapping screws to hold the under tray on till I tried to refit it by myself. Cue a blue worded description for the previous owner who broke many of the original undertray fittings...another one to add to the fix list...
