    Well this morning the rain was really bad in manchester i set off for work nice and easy. As i got to the M56 all hell broke lose the rain was so bad i couldnt drive over 25mph and the motoway was flooded big time.

    Before i knew it i hit a great big puddle which came over the car the power steering went and i wasnt far from work so i made it into the carpark just before the batt died.

    The fan belt had slipped off the tensioner and bent it alittle.

    anyway i was let out of work so i could sort it before newyear

    While i fitted the new belt and tensioner i also fitted a new uprated front engine mount.

    its been a **** day but the car feels harder and there is no banging anymore when i hit the fun pedal. and the new tensioner is a lot quieter then the old worn unit.


    thats been my day how about yours


    cheers
