Thumbs up What I did today thread...

I see this forum doesn't have a "what I did today" thread which is a happy dumping ground of those wishing to tell all what they achieved recently....so let me start one off.

It was a perfect sunny day here, very unusual of late, so I replaced all discs, pads and shoes on all corners, fit new power steering reservoir, engine oil and filter change, remove O/S wing liner and take the alarm module out, hacksaw it open for some preventative maintenance by replacing the batteries, (still to find some suitable batteries online), replace the main bearing in the wiper motor and refit, tighten handbrake cable, charge the battery as I'm getting low battery indicator on the information module and give the car a wash.

P.S. Forgot to mention... while the wing liner was off, the amount of mud and grit I found stuck up behind the heaflight was pretty appaling. This is future trouble for rust I reckon. I hosed all the dirt out and then slabbered Waxoyl everywhere for rustproofing.

I had a long lazy sleep in until 11am (well it is Sunday), got up, helped the wife with some house work, visited my son and his mrs, cut his grass and gave him some advice re-the gardening, came home, did some gardening of my own, now chilling out with a beer.

Here is a pictue of the new and old wiper motor bearing that needs replaced. They are used a lot in skateboards and available on eBay from some one I have no affiliation with at all.

I got an e-mail back from the company above and they say Emmerich, the maker of the batteries, has gone bust, but he does have a solution.. In fact he came straight back and asked if it was for a Volvo!....suggesting someone else has been down this route already. I'll let you know of his costings and whether the CPC/Farnell battery will work out cheaper.

OK, I have the cost from Univer Cell who have quoted me 20 all-in for replacement of the cells. No affiliation and you can get get similar from other places. On the other hand, you could just get the complete kit from here:- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volo-Alarm...item2c567b8a54

My "Regular service required" message popped-up this morning (on the S60)...that seems to have come around quickly.
Just one thing of note, the oil level has not budged at all since the last service.

156.7k and running great.
