    De-carboned my 034 HFC , i was going to gut it by decided to try a good clean first.
    It was very sooty both sides of the core quite baked on aswell.
    Plan "A" block one end and the 02 sensor port, fill the cat with sodium bicarbonate powder and add some vinegar to start the reaction.
    Wow did that shift some soot etc, swapped round and did the other end and even more frothed out the top.
    Finished with a blast of cold water and now its having a nice gentle 100f dry out in the sun..lol

    will add a pic in a bit, but seems to have cleared a lot of soot from the cat and core.

    Not the best of pics but here you go, and its a massive improvement over the way it was, need to recut one of the threads aswell as its a bit poor but easy job.:yes:

    I doubt it will make any difference to the emission situation but worth doing all the same and best of all, it was free....:yahoo:

    Had my aircon serviced last week: only had 149 grammes of gas left... no wonder it struggled to get the temp low inside..
    Now fully filled, and nice and cool again :)

    No wonder we have rear wiper issues (those that kept them)

    Hmm bit of a mess there, had it packed up?
    I can never understand the "kill all wipers" delete crew. Rear wipers are there for a reason, to clear windows.
    I've only ever had one car that the rear window stayed clean on. That was a SEAT Toledo saloon, and that had a rear raised spoiler that the wind turbulence did the job.

    It worked when I wanted it to,the issue was it would also sometimes work when I didn’t want it to and get stuck in the middle and required a prod to return it home

    Indeed! Akoya Silver S-Line, it was BLB also but had the Balancing shaft/OilPump modified. Bullet proof bar the EGR getting clogged once.

    The way I prefer to remember her :icon thumright:

    It sure is :)

    The wheels are a disgrace, like, it must have taken genuine effort to kerb them so much. However, the price was reasonable, it needs two tyres..... so I feel a wheel swap coming on.

    I bagged a nice pair of underseat storage bins on ebay the other day to go in my Avant. Popped them in after work tonight and quite happy with the little extra storage space

    You need universal jointed limbs.

    I didn't find them bad tbh, i unbolted the seats and laid them back to gain access. The worse bit was slotting the little spire clips to the seat base! Got there in the end and a nice, staight forward retrofit which is a first for me!

    The slide out ones might be simpler to fit then than the tilting cover ones.
    I fitted a pair to my B8 ones, but did it before I fitted them in the car.
    I now have a pair of half leather S line B7 seats to go in and thankfully the seat boxes are already fitted.

    Are they a straight swap?
    Does it matter that it says "off road" on the packet?

    Yes straight swap. They're D1S so factory fitment bulb.

    Off road I'm sure means that strictly they wouldnt pass an MOT. But bulbs are the least of my worries.
