Lude batteries are annoyingly expensive (comparatively).
I need to check through my receipts... Think the current one may still be in warranty - and it's not had a bad life, always lived on smart charger when parked up, so no damn excuse!

So the moral of that story obviously is... If your neighbours car battery goes flat, don't offer to help them!
Or nick their new battery :lol:

Unfortunately the CR-V uses the most pathetic tiny battery you've ever seen! (it's the same size as a Del-Sol, from what I recall)
:evil:

And the results on the BB4 battery are in...

Yep, that's drokked :lol:

Despite the grey weather, we had a good trip out to Brooklands today.

The reflection of the pug in the background there is giving me nightmares.

Tried to do the wife's Peugeot 207 front crank oil seal today. The new seal went in too far (no shoulder on block) then the rear lip of the seal got caught/hooked on the chain that drives the oil pump. Had to destroy the seal to get the old one out. Nice 60 odd mile round trip to Basingstoke tomorrow to get another one (getting 2 just in case, cheap enough).

If that doesn't fix the mysterious oil leak - then its new car time... If i don't fix it tomorrow, wife has to drive the lude, so better get it done! Replaced the engine on the pug last year at 127k miles, had a full top end headset and gasket, belts tensioners and a waterpump, thought it would be set for at least another couple of years - but 13k later the leak ate away the alternator belt so needs addressing.

Should be working on the lude instead!
