"Easy!".... easy it said tongue crazy laugh


Just took me very nearly 2.5hrs to change a fuel filter... now i get my garage is too small...axle stands too low... but where in the guide did it say "You will be fighting the outside bolt for the cover for approx 90-100mins - if i were you i'd just put a match to it!"

On the plus side, took all of about 10mins once the cover was off and the clips unclipped and reclipped on the new filter without breaking!

I am pretty sure Fiat Coupes just simply don't like being tampered with.

So many times I've gone to replace a part as a good owner- and my coop rebels!

10 out of 10 for overseeing the change of filter!

Regards

I’m not sure we could add a liberal torching to the how to guides no matter how long the stubborn bolt took to remove....! laugh

I take it you’ve not tried to remove the starter motor? I swear you need 7 fingers on one hand and a triple jointed wrist!!

Glad the guide was ‘useful’ thumb

Nothing really straight forward working on a Coop Lee. Even the relatively easy jobs can throw up some difficulties.... laugh


I'm an old git & happy with it,most of the time
