im looking into finding a free webhost, making a site which can be accessed from this forum, which has all the guides, to fix and mod and any other top tips. what i am also looking into doing is making this so the public can actively change things when they need amending (obvious security - such as admin proof reading)Newspaperman said:See Gents if we had a technical document section as I queried a few months ago this question could of been answered by someone looking for a writ up or how to guide .... I rest my case
I ended up buying the cheapest ring spanner Supercheap had, & getting a friendly engineer to bastardise it with a shallow S, so it fitted between rad & motor.I have a 308 2.0 HDi and was wanting some guidance on changing the oil filter especially in regards to access to the top of the housing, I appreciate it is 27mm hex but its not located in the easist location i.e. I'm not even sure a rachet & socket will get in there and certainly not a full lenght ring spanner !
Thank you for the replyI ended up buying the cheapest ring spanner Supercheap had, & getting a friendly engineer to bastardise it with a shallow S, so it fitted between rad & motor.
Looking at it side on, the spanner becomes a shallow s. My engineer welded on a 1/2" square drive, but I haven't had to use it.Thank you for the reply
What is a shallow S, you mean cut it down to size so it fits ?
BTW did you use ramps to get access to the sump plug ?
