I’ve just changed it to spec anyway.

clutch works - I can move backwards and forwards within the 3ft space it’s in in the garage. I still think the pedal feels low - but that might be paranoia creeping in.

I’ve finally bit the bullet and ran her upto temperature. 

Bled the rad - airlocked twice - fans cut in and out nicely.

fetled with the secondary connectors - error 26 has gone for now.

did a dump of the ecu for @sailorbobto have a look at.

the blue cam belt needs retensioning again - same as the S4 it’s gone tighter after a run up.

we shall see how tomorrow goes and maybe I’ll spin her up the lane

Yeah - that’s taking a chuffing eternity to ensure it’s full. I ain’t one bit convinced that’s pumping like it should be - but it’s taking in water and not leaking - so I suppose that’s good.

abs light of course is on - I will need to print off the espritmon instructions and plug in the pc at some point. That is of course unless anyone else has any suggestions

You mean one of those Margate Exotics brake conversions?  I've heard they're very good, and great value too.

British Fart to Florida, Nude to New York, Dunce to Denmark, Numpty to Newfoundland.  And Shitfaced Silly Sod to Sweden.

Epic levels of happiness. 

Shes back in the garage in a tidy spot now. I’d love to be pulling the calipers off now - but need to do the vans this afternoon before the swimming run

They were grinding a bit !! I swapped the fronts earlier in the week - sounded like it was the front pads that were making a noise - they only had a smear left on them.

all done - Vauxhall’s want £110 labour to swap one set of pads !!! Even being slow it’s a 20 min job per corner
