Car still going well except for a couple of niggly things.

Had the aircon regassed last week and now the compressor has started to whine when it's on. Maybe it will heal itself...

For a long time, occasionally, the clutch squeals when pulling away. The arrival of a new dashcam has allowed me to capture this. Any thoughts what it might be? Listen at 0:08 and 0:47.

Been camping a few times in the Porsche. It's a bit tight to get everything in but not too bad. On the 27th September night it's a 'supermoon total lunar eclipse' and I'm off to sit in a field in the Yorkshire Dales and pray for no rain so I can get some good pictures. So decided more storage was needed.

Roly at Exeter Roofracks (http://www.roofracks-roofboxes.co.uk) was brilliant at advising on the Thule parts which work and was happy to split two feet kits so that the box sits level. I got his details from elsewhere on this site. Purists look away now ...

Another year of fun driving, another service and MoT Surprised

Air-conditioning stopped working somewhere along the way and regassing it in the summer didn't really fix it, and it got noisy.

Still have the weird squeal on 'robust' pull-away (https://youtu.be/mAOz18Q96bk). Apart from that it all seemed OK ...

Hartech had it for a week and found that one of the air-con pipes had a leak - replaced, regassed and now all OK. The squeal may be the clutch, which is worn, but we decided OK for another year. Also had a worn track rod end - replaced. And both front side lights, which I replaced in Oct 2014, had gone again. Now replaced.

Ignition coil cover replaced. And a brake pipe which had a spot of corrosion replaced.

Plus major service and MoT.

All better now Smile and just over five hundred quid (plus the monthly maintenance plan costs). Pretty happy with that!! Thank you Hartech.

It seems to drive much better now ... but maybe that's just my imagination.

Turned out, the clutch wasn't OK for another year Sad

It's sitting on the drive waiting for a man and a trailer from Hartech to take it away and mend it!

Oh well, it would have needed doing anyway, and you were at home. At least it won't squeak anymore!

Expecting to get the car back on Saturday, with a new clutch and flywheel.

It's been nice driving the rented Hyundai i40 but ...

Changed the battery in the key fob and now the car ignores it. Nothing. Zilch.

The spare fob works OK. And the LED's on the original fob flash just the same as they do on the spare.

What magic incantation do I need to utter to make it work again?

I confirm that replacing the clutch and flywheel cured the weird squeak!

Looking forward to annual fun camping trip with my daughter!

Sadly, my rear tyre had other ideas.

Thank's to the AA and a car swap, we made it to the campsite! About 6 hours later than expected.

The AA also supplied and replaced both rear tyres, on my drive, at quite a good price![/img]

Oddly, the strange clutch related squeal on pulling away has returned! Confused

Due for service and MOT in two months so will be interesting to see what Hartech have to say.

Otherwise, still great!!

Ouch!

That has nearly happened to me a number of times... I've always taken for granted that the bird would know the car was there, reallly. It appears not!

My nemesis are deer.
