    Well, we have had a **** day....
    Just enough cash to make the day worthwhile and the clutch master cylinder on the A3 gives up( at least all indications are its that), its under 5k old and VW wont warrenty it as they didnt fit it, ASSH*LES!!!

    We have a new one turning up in the morning, so hope to get it done and get on our way to the RR day that SRS are running as we were gonna do that en route too,lol

    Hopefully we will both be there with both cars, but who knows....... AAARSSSSSSSSSEEEE

    Ok so new MC put on reverse out of the drive and no breaks or clutch!!!! (there was not enough vacume to work the breaks as the car was bearly moving) nearly pooed myself! Back on the drive and its now leaking break fluid so it is obviously the slave. Managed to get hold of the part and Byzan is in the middle of fitting it.

    I hope to God it works I have been looking forward to this weekend for months. Well if all goes well we will be up tomorrow in both cars, if not just the A4 [​IMG]

    Fingers crossed [​IMG]

    Ps if we come in just the A4 please dont ask about it or I will cry :(
