Okay, I got really miffed off last week. Mr *ILoveYou* (my other half) has been driving my car to work since we moved into our new house, as its cheaper on fuel in the long run. I got in the car Tuesday night to go to work, it was fine, got back Wednesday morning no noises! NO NOISES!
Got in the car Friday afternoon to drive to Wolverhampton with him to visit his dad and for me to do a night shift in Derby, and I heard this 'thunk tunk thunk' noise.... I turned to my other half, 'Dear, what was that noise?' (She stupidly asked (That was a sarcastic dear, I do not call him dear). 'Oh, I don't know. It started yesterday, I'VE BEEN IGNORNING IT!'.
Why ignore a noise! Anyway, I couldn't stop and pull over to check it, so I drove up to Wolverhampton and got to his dad's. I got out of the car, went around the back and looked under the car. My exhaust was hanging!
Now, I don't need agreement that I need to sort the brackets and kick his head in, but this is not the first car that we own that has had this. As in, I mean, his car in September his exhaust brackets went. The thing is his work has moved him to a new site with a massive speed hump and you can only defo go over it doing a crawl otherwise you drop loads on the other side, but you still drop loads doing a crawl.
I was thinking that my exhaust was fine till he started driving it to work and his exhaust had been fine till he moved to this new site. Would I be right in thinking that it could be this speed hump causing these exhaust brackets to fail? Cause he's been saying loads of people have been moaning about them. I'm thinking if it does it again after I've done these brackets, then it defo the hump.
But why ignore a noise? I could have replaced the brackets Thursday night or Friday before we drove up. And they say women are bad! He's worse! Though, he killed his 206.
