    Mercedes Vito W639 a/c issue

    If you go for he recharge you might like to include the uv dye. But before using the uv torch to identify a leak you may have to clean potential leak spots to ensure you aren't seeing previous dye. Hopefully it isn't needed.

    Alloy Refurbishment

    Depending on taste you could go for chrome effect powder coating, I use City Powder Coat in Brumingham, they're cheap as chips and do a good job. It costs extra if you want it done the same day. I usually wait until it's time for new tyres, and the car comes back to me with pretty wheels and new...

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    If I understand this as a suggestion of what I might have done in response on Saturday evening at 10pm ish. The platforms are awash with signage. If reading isn't peoples strong point the tannoy is repeatedly telling of the control. Those ignoring this are ignoring with intent. It follows that...

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    No argument with any of that, I wasn't suggesting absolute, as in 'majority'. Reducing risk is intelligent. But aside from national and sub national legislation and even a more local legislation that some here would create have me abide by there is opportunity of personal choice in the risks...

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    And it's difficult to believe that Trump didn't enjoy occasional touching, even if he did carry sanitiser. It's not hard to imagine what Putin reminded him of in Helsinki that later gave Putin the most smug expression I have ever seen him with.

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    I've no argument around the highly contagious bit, or that the personal effect can vary from didn't know to life changing result including a very unpleasant death. But for the likes of us to find reliable data / figures to base our personal strategy on is near impossible, imho. We are given...

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    One major difference of him and the majority is that he could afford to separate himself from the rest of life, in the main. He would still need some interaction or there is no life worth having, imo. If the forecast winds aren't too high, so if Mrs Me allows for it, we're off sailing this w/e...

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    You, I or the majority are unable to avoid potential infection. Do we always wash our hands after handling the post that dropped on the door mat? Can we be 100% sure our hands didn't go to our faces prior to washing our hands, in many scenarios? One partner goes shopping, can we be sure that...

    Mercedes Vito W639 a/c issue

    After market £67.71, ATS recharge £59. Fitted by self last September. There's a bit of work with removal of bumper, removal of various rad's, and top up of coolant later. In truth maybe I should have replaced the pressure sensor as it's likely original.

    Mercedes Vito W639 a/c issue

    Take it to ATS and ask them to pressurise with inert gas. On mine it was the condensor that the machine had missed.

    Declaring extras that aren't fitted.

    Being a chap of restricted anal aperture I begrudge paying £25 for them ticking a couple of boxes later that I can easily tick now. What was interesting the 2 additions are tow bar and wheel chair clamps / straps. The quote dropped by nearly 60 quids for ticking them, go figure. Me tinking dat...

    Declaring extras that aren't fitted.

    So I'm looking at comparison sites. I enter the extras that I will fit but I haven't got the car yet so haven't and get the quotes. I buy the car, tell them it has this and that. If I have an oops splat before I fit the bits would that affect the claim? "Sorry Sir you haven't modified the...

    Vito front suspension

    Vito shocks and springs would raise the front by perhaps 2". But expect a harder ride as they're designed for hauling weight. The rear will raise as well automatically, but may be close to it's limit. Isn't it possible to fit nudge bars that sit higher? It wouldn't be my preference to mess...

    2009 Vito sport x single seat swap

    Possible 'maybe' They are handed, aside from the arm rest. The passenger seat will have an occupancy sensor for the air bag. The drivers seat doesn't need one.
