Firm plans to go up this weekend, methinks...
I am trying to do a diff oil change as well this weekend as well as waxoyling it.
2000 Frontera 2.2 DTi Ltd
My diff oil's been done (hopefully) see the Axles section. Aside from that, I wanna do an engine / 'box oilchange - hopefully that'll cure my little leak from up front, and we'll be pretty much all set
I wont be there due to my other toy having its main event of the year this weekend!! (MGF 200bhp)
Just a word of warning about the bordon sites in general,
SAND and BRAKES
Appart from the fact that they dont mix very well,
I had plentty of pad and no damage to my rear disc's before I went to Broxhead Common in Bordon (Just down the road, very similar site)
After getting back I have had to have
New Rear Pads
New Rear Discs
New Rear Shoes
Recon Caliper as sand seized it
New handbreak cable as sand got in the sleeve and wore away the cabe double quick!!!!
For all those that are thinking that I didn't clean it properly before comin home, I used over 50l of water only on the wheels, brakes and rad!! (As well as driving through the deep STANDFORD FORD several times (See my video)
Please Please make sure you clean the brakes as thouroughly as you can before comin back AND take the wheel off once back and again deep clean with jetwash / by hand!!
Have fun all,

yup ...when we returned home from broxhead ...the first thing i did was strip the brakes and clean them all out ....not had any issues sinse
Was hoping to get to this again but our dog sitters have had the nerve to go away on holiday . When I sold my sport it still had cement like sand lumps under the bonnet
Is the greenlaning still going ahead tommorrow?
I havent got any arrangement details if so.
P.S I have only just finished cleaning the fronty for tommorrow so she looks her best
What did ye wanna do that for mate???? Fronty's look their absolute best when covered in mud, etc
Anyroadup, the sad news is that the laning has been put back a weekend or two - just too many "little jobs" needed doing on the truck, and as ever, nowhere near enough time to do em, hehe
So saying, I'm now looking at the weekend of 9th August for that now.
How's your CB doing, incidentally??
And even more sadly, due to "family stuffs " I'm gonnae have to give up even tomorrow's fun and games also... Boo, hiss, etc etc
Cb is working just needs a little swring. I borrowed another twig off si to compare just not had time.
Big news is got a leak from the gearbox (The new one) oil smelt like cats p but checked front diff and fine but seems to be coming from topend of box so will have to go to paul for a looksee.
Always something needs doing!
