    Strange you are having problems uploading from your phone. This is what my screen looks like on the phone. Do you see the paper clip on yours?

  6. Howdie back in a scooby.

    apart from the Horshoe my car underneath is very nice....ive since cavity waxed it on the inside now...and beaten it with hammer for anything tester missed so i dont have to crawl underneath it next year to weld fingers crossed.... My standard exhaust is not fairing too well either so on the hunt for a replacement...needs to be standardish...nice n quiet...if you have a good condition standard exhaust in your shed and wanna part with it let me know.... If You have a wagon....with mild steel arms....id change em Now...mine rotted out from inside look good on outside...would i get Subaru Main dealers to do it....Nope!

    Well i had some fun and games lately.... Got a recall letter...For the Lower wishbones rust and booked in at local Dealer. Well moving off drive away at 10 mph the offside collasped and i kept to a halt....scary stuff ...theyve rotted out from inside. so spoke to Subaru and no problems get car to us well sort so assist Recovery with my skates and get car to them... Then the phonecall....your car is very rusty it really needs to be in the scrapyard and we are concerned we will damage the hubs removing the arms and ball joints...we need confirmation to proceed as there may be additional costs involved..... £1000.00 per side for new hubs and wheel bearings fitted at £82.00 per hour. Hell no...give me the arms and ill do myself...blowtorch and pentrating spray should tickle them out.....im sorry your used to new cars but it passed last years mot with a 50mm patch of welding i put onhorseshow and itll pass this year too maybe with a tad more....tell mechs to man up...I got 3 cars here all 25 years old and ive rebuilt suspension on them no issues... so many phonecalls and headoffice filling out some form online for intervention...i get a phonecall from Dealer all done!... Hoorah, well sort off not really...more whack whack boom.... Tracking is out bigtime....pulls to left and steering wheel off centre my number 1 car pet hate... so i get that done locally... then few weeks time mot.....Fail...dreaded horseshoe....more welding required massive patch on O/s now ....and a puncture wound in the outer CV gaiter....i wonder how that happened!.... anyways confused by tester that a fail is fail...you cant use it despite 9 days left of old mot? So its unsafe to drive? No its failed to meet standard...you can drive home though....Is this a safety standard ? yes....so whats the difference between driving home and driving to work tomorrow....is 1 more safe than the other!!!. stupid rules... So Subaru....ive owned my Wagon for 2.5 years....The Vosa enforced recall happened was released in 2012...why has it taken 2.5 years to notify me ? Ive done 60mph down country lanes in this thing if it had collasped doing that high potential id be dead now.... So chalked it up to experience and reminded why i dont ever use dealers and try and do all my car maintenanace myself...( engineer for 25yrs). But keep getting these customer service emails...well 7th one i let them have it.....still not got a reply why its taken 2.5 years to inform me my car could flip over and kill me...
