Hello everyone thought I'd best say hello properly.
On Sunday we picked up a swb 2003 2.2 petrol.

So far not been plain sailing..

Exhaust manifold has a crack which had been puttyed and I missed it as under the heat shield :thumbdown:

I have had to order rear shocks as they are shocking lol
Also ordered poly arb bushes front and rear.

New exhaust mid box as I had a strange vibration when downshifting and turning off engine...turns out box has collapsed inside.

There is a bit of diff noise at rear when up to 60mph I have changed the oil this eve and added moly slip to help it....ended up wearing much of the old oil as my rear different had no drain plug so cover off job lol....still seems to have a whine but a bit quieter now hope this is Normal :?:
