    Day 4! I've cleaned the cars outside and checked the oil level! Its within the lower half of tolerance.

    However, I cannot top it up since I cannot get the oil cap off! Need to spend a bit more time in the gym methinks! I'm turning it anticlockwise, I've tried a cloth to help grip. Next step will be pliers of some sort, but I am SLIGHTLY worried about breaking the cap and dropping parts of brittle plastic into the engine!

    I also need to remove the intruder I found underneath the front seat, he looked like a Jelly baby but on closer inspection of the photo it may be a crisp of some kind.

    Success! The intruder has been removed and disposed of (potassium nitrate hehe) and i've managed to remove the oil cap with the gentle use of a spanner.

    Next was a new rear wiper, the old one was VERY tired so we replaced it with a Bosch wiper this morning!

    Next will be two front tyres! I also need to look into the front driver side parking sensor, it seems to go off at the littlest thing!

    Also wipe down engine bay!

    Did you smear a little oil on the rubber seal before refitting?

    I did not! I need to buy a little bottle of oil! I will do this next time! I guess that will stop it being so tight!
