  1. Clutch thrust bearing

    My car has been making a bit of a noise recently, it used to do it just as the clutch is engaging. Almost like an elephant noise, or a large rubber belt noise. It actually started doing this about 2 weeks after the clutch change, possibly due to no greased on it other than what was supplied, are they meant to be greased further?

    Anyway, ordered a thrust bearing on Wednesday afternoon from rock auto, it was a decent price, even with shipping added it came to around 50. Its out for delivery ...

  5. Not impressed with Virgin Media

    Well its Monday 3rd June. Noticed the TV and internet went off about 10am this morning, so went online to see if the problem had been reported and sure enough it has. Estimated repair time Thursday 6th. Thats over 3 days!!!. Not impressed. Having no TV isn't a good time, and need to do some work in the evenings, emailing off some circuit boards so without internet is a tad annoying, I could use data on phone.

    I've called Virgin, we have 10 months left to go on the contract, and to ...
