    The gearbox leaks from the selector. The oil filter holds about 100 ml of oil and this usually tips onto the engine as it's removed. (Putting rags under and around the filter helps catch some oil.)
  2. Oil service Adelaide

    Sorry to hear your troubles. If you haven't already changed the oil do so, because it won't be the right type and may cause engine damage. Paying full retail prices, the correct spec full synthetic oil is about $90 for 6L and the filter and washer is $25 so paying somebody $129 means they have either worked for nothing, or cut corners somewhere. The oil change and paint correction stuff is VERY easy to do yourself and needs minimal tools, it only requires some time and effort and a willingness to get a bit dirty. Get a friendly forum member over to show you how to do it the first time, then you'll be set for life. For the pain correction, I and others have had excellent results with Meguiars Ultimate Compound, Polish and Wax products. Very easy to use, very good results, hard to make anything worse. If the paint is OK and only has swirls (not oxidation) start with a wash and clay bar, then use the polish, then wax. Only use the compound if necessary. Buy a clay bar on eBay for $6, don't pay $30 from a retailer.

  4. Announcement: Forum Upgrade 4/7/17

    First of all, well done on the forum upgrade. My comments: I'm not a fan of the dark background. My main interface to the old forums (and most forums tbh) is the "recent posts" search. On the new forums this is broken, and when clicking on the new topics are displayed, the click goes to the very first topic in the thread. I'd expect to go the first unread post in the thread (or as a cheat, the last post in the thread).
  5. Problem With "view New Content"

    Well spotted. Thanks!
  6. When I use the "view new content" link (on a proper computer) I only get 1 post displayed -- [Qld] Monthly Night Get Together. Is it particularly quiet?
  7. A Tool Librabry In Sydney?

    Torque wrenches are cheap (<$50 including postage) and worth getting just for your wheel nuts. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/AU-Local-Adjustable-1-2-and-3-8-Dual-Drive-Micrometer-Torque-Ratchet-Wrench/262473142298 This looks exactly the same as a Kinchrome one I purchased a couple of years ago for over $100.
  8. Bought A Cheapie 172

    Rear bearings are hard to change themselves, usually they come in new disks.
  9. Bought A Cheapie 172

    Can you share the process you used to pair the remote to the car. That's the bit I'm having problems with,. Tx.
  10. Bought A Cheapie 172

    Im getting a new key +remote done for my 172... over $400 from the dealer. I've bought a $30 remote from eBay but there is no way to program them.

    Maybe you didn't give it enough time?
