  1. Spectator only, tip for older persons there is a fairground by the entrance to the drag strip, especially if you are tent camping PARK AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE, ITS RUDDY NOISY. Edited add on I swopped the Main Pulley and popped on a new auxillary belt all pulleys fine shifted the rood tent nearer the front, (centred over rear O/S door) and the drone diminished, air passing between the tent base and car roof causing a thrumming sound!! Checked the Engine mounts all sound no splits observed, will be cleaning the MAF as fuel consumption 38mpg best and MAF can cause a slightly uneven tic

  2. PS I only fit approved Towbars, Anker are the cheapest for flange type and for removable swan fitting there is a good Italian make which also sells spares, forgotten the name I will dig out some paper work. Anker also very nicely provided information (all bars are specific to the car they fit) on how to remove the Rear Bumper on the Touran, information sadly missing on the scandal that is modern Hayne manuals, I know I had to remove the bumper what I needed to know was HOW! In the Tourans case you remove the steel crash bar from under the bumper and the Main Towbar frame fits in its

  4. Wanting to heat a push on connection and being unable to get a hot gun near it, my daughter bought me what looks like a tiny hot glue gun, its a catalytic hot air gun that runs on butane gas and is not extremely hot so perfect for shrink joints it has a cupping half tube fitting to pass the hot air behind a connection lovely useful little toy.

  5. PPS another Eric O bit of genious check the wiring diagram to see where commonality exists between linked problems, you may have a issue where your wipers share the Earth with the lights, if so check this earth and if in doubt pull it apart and rewire the connections split the wires between a couple of Ring connectors, seeing Eric using crimp/shrink connectors I've purchased some of those as when shrinking hot glue melts and seals out moisture, beautiful strong crimps

  6. I have been watching a you tuber channel called SOUTH MAIN AUTO its in New York state so no plug here and Eric O seems to find the most idiotic failures but his best advice is when tracing multiple failures go for the simplest first in that case a clock spring replacement fixed many smaller annoying faults, I did this on my Fiat Panda fixed the Horn, still have 2 airbag lights up but that may just be a reset issue, Eric Came across an Earthing fault, not the connector to body but 'green crusties' in the wires entering the connector, this has me being very watchful to check the PHYSICAL state o

  9. Did it stall while coasting? or lose power, check the fuel filter if it does it again if its empty......fuel pump! If it does it again reach under and give the tank a thump, do this with ignition on and see if you hear the pump running..........Hand brake on hard of course

  10. True I have done enough from pre can days to post can and always fit Towbars to larger car as me and the late wife caravanned a couple of time a year, trickiest part is fitting duel electrics you need a canbus bypass relay which does the bleeping and a split charge relay for the Fridge/caravan battery, if fitting both, the car battery connection must be heavy enough to power both and will need to be run from the car battery to the back of your vehicle and I found a power probe that nicks the wire and a test lamp to pick up trigger connections for the rear light/fogs/indicators/brake lights, Ha
