  1. Cars in the garage (not at the house) will take one tomorrow
  2. Thanks for the link proporsche but the remaining threads have had it. I have ordered a new housing (the new kitchen will have to wait ☺️)
  3. Got one of the pipes of the thermostat housing but the other bl##dy one has twisted the thread off. Thinking now that I will have to try and get the flexi pipes off the cooler, remove the lot then try to remove the long pipes from the thermostat housing on the bench. This is starting to get expensive!
  4. Thanks for the tip Ian & Ivan after several failed attempts with heat & penetrating oil the two hammers worked straight away on the main engine pipe . Now for the thermostat housing. 2 down, 2 to go.
  5. Tank nut undone with no damage 😀, 3 more to go.
  6. Trying to undo the nut onto the oil tank but having no luck at the moment, I an concerned that if I put to much weight behind the spanner that I will crease the tank as it’s only thin metal.
  7. Thanks for the tips guys, I think that I will try to drop the lot from the car then try to sort it on the workbench. Neither pipe is leaking at the moment but I rather get them done before they start.
  8. Need to remove them as they are badly rusted, I want to keep the pipes that run along the sill as these were replaced by the previous owner about 5 years ago. Trouble is if I damage the alloy threads then to replace the thermostat I will need to undo these as well.
  9. I am trying to replace the 2x oil pipes from the oil thermostat to the oil tank and the thermostat to the engine but for the life of me cannot undo the nuts. I have tried heat,plus gas & virtually everything else available, does anyone have any tips on how best to undo these bl##dy things? Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Could I have the hot air socket please.
  11. Thanks for your reply Andre, will give it a go.
  12. Thanks Chris & Nige, bloody computers.
  13. I wouldn’t have a clue how to attach a link but this is the item number 254661832863 Sorry (give me engines over computers any day)
  14. Chap on eBay is selling 3D printed MAF/filter adapters to allow fitting of a cone type air filter, bought one recently and it is a perfect fit.
  15. Does anyone know if I will encounter any running problems or other issues by just blanking off or removing the charcoal filter on my 3.2 Carrera? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
