    Almost a week in.

    Last night picked up some bits from Halfords (v cheap service parts on click and collect). Came out to find a flat.

    Prompted 3 tyres replaced. Needed doing.

    Cheap rubbish, I'm afraid. Tiding me over. A few bills racking up. Windscreen chipped today too. )-:

    Think she'll breathe easier now with brand new filter.
    That's probably the dirtiest filter I've seen on a Honda.

    Shocking wasn't it?

    It's running a bit smoother I think, after an oil change.

    But...........was it a bit sticky getting out of reverse tonight???

    Worried a bit about the gearchange last night. However it was fine today.

    Going to change the MTF ASAP, I think.

    The front bumper had been whacked under previous owners watch. Windscreen washer water pees out when you fill it and headlamp washers not working. One fog light is smashed.

    I whipped the bumper off today. This was the undamaged N/S end of business. Note the fender shape,

    Here's the other side....

    DSC_0819_v1_zpsnbekwtwg.

    Not much to be done there. I could get an ebay job...

    BTW - what's the reservoir for on the O/S???

    The washer pipe was split, and a plastic connector shattered. I did this...

    It didn't work - as it fouled the fender. I tried again, but going around with a section of hosepipe, clipped in. Headlight washers still not working....but no leaks now.

    Fog lamps..............?? 12v fog lamp generic? Or scrappy job??

    Fresh MTF would make a big difference to the gear change (assuming the clutch is OK).

    Best to try and get that broken washer pipe from a scrappy. Is that the only place it leaks ?

    Fog lights... does it have some already ? Or are you wanting to add some ?

    There' are new ones available on ebay (aftermarket ones) or you could get some from a scrappy.
