New member from Plymouth

Hi,

i think it may be the Vac hose connection to the air filter snorkel which controls the summer/winter valve thingy? then again could be wrong without looking at my car.

very frustrating Jim, but at least its all up and running again now. its hard to decide what to take with you on the tools and spares front when going anywhere with any old car, having to take into account were you will park etc and the internal argument with myself over how reliable the car is and ...

Binding brakes this time.

hi,

you could just take the hose off the servo to eliminate the servo operation perhaps (probably have to blank the end of the pipe when you remove it)

or would that not work? easier tan removal and dismantling.
