Ahh. The old autocorrect and the writer not checking before posting. I have been caught by this myself, but generally only in texts to family or occasionally on here.

What I have found is where things like this get seen, it doesn't appear that the original writer goes back and corrects the mistype? Whatever happened to chief editors vetting pieces before they were 'printed'?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

expobar dual office lever, fitted a new pump last week and all was fine now it wont stop running which maybe the water level sensor but i aint taking it to bits now 😒

If you want / need  a machine urgently, I have a single group E61 machine sitting here unused near Norwich  for a while but with a quick flush I think it's ready for use. Would keep the shakes away while you work out what's going on with yours.

The side repeater on the nearside of the Evora has decided to call it a day. I'd hoped that it was just a loose wire as I'd disconnected it to remove the front clam for the recent clutch master cylinder replacement, and then I was working right alongside that particular piece of wiring again yesterday when I had to deal with a tiny weep from the clutch hydraulic line, but no such luck. It's dead.

New one ordered on B&C's eBay site. £60!!! :o - the LED that's failed probably costs about 20p but it's a sealed unit so that's that then.

I think the most annoying thing is that I've had to rip-out the wheel arch liner yet again. Any of you who've experienced this task will know just what a pain in the proverbial it is and I'd only just fought with it getting it back in last night, :(.

The side repeaters seem to be a problem I recall somewhere else on here. I found when taking the wheel arch liners off my S, the clip things never went in back properly so often had to use new ones. Saw an Evora yesterday in the middle of a clutch change and gearbox rebuild - how different it looks so undressed..

I didn't bother trying to re-use any of the clips even although they were new a few weeks ago as not that many of them had survived the removal process in any case.

Full set of new clips installed on Saturday and the same full set of new clips ripped-out and chucked in the bin on Sunday, :(.

Fortunately, I've still got enough unused ones for the re-install once the replacement light is in place.

Unscrew the scrivet screw nearly all the way out and then pull the screw with pliers and they come out in reusable condition. If the whole scrivet is rotating a 'pointy' bradle stuck into the outer helps with unscrewing.  I keep a box of assorted sizes (ebay) but reused every one of mine when I removed the liners to replace the mudflap fixing brackets...

I don't know what has made me more unhappy, the failure of the side repeater light as 'reported' a couple of posts above or, having spent £60 on a replacement (and let's not forget another £3 or so for the 'Evora' stickers as the new one only has a blank space), that when I went to fit it this morning I discover that the old unit is functioning perfectly again, :rant:.

It would appear that, in common with the front sidelights, the LEDs in these units can also self-heal, :ermm:. Since I've got the arch-liner out already, I might as well crack on and install the new light anyway. Maybe I should have ordered two as the 'shock' to the system of the the new one will undoubtedly cause the one on the other side to fail now.

Little sod commits crime, runs away from the cops on a moped (which he probably nicked and was riding illegally) and kills himself through his own risk taking and ineptitude and they're trying to prosecute the cop for doing his job. Shocking, the CPS should be ashamed.
