Is it possible to have your OSH “switched on” for an older car like mine? As mine has never had anything electronically recorded?Another recommendation for E&E at Milton Keynes (if you live close enough)
I probably pass a couple of really good indies on my journey to get there but I am very comfortable with them and they do indeed update the service history.
Maybe a long shot, but maybe the old arm being worn had thrown the rear alignment out a little that could have impacted tyre wear slightly and the new arm could be correcting this and causing a little noise? But if the noise is now gone then I wouldn't worry about it.Whilst I have you all great minds on one thread. The car failed its MOT on a rear lower suspension arm which was replaced. I had noticed a droning noise (not the wife) coming from the car that sounded like a wheel bearing, although the left/right trick wasn’t working to find out which side. That noise seems to have gone now which I find really weird. Could the rear lower arm have been causing this droning noise? Anybody had the same experience?
If you are using old oil cans they normally have measures up the side so you can tell how much has come out.But you can more easily measure the oil quantity extracted by using the vacuum pump, then tip the contents into the empty new oil can(s) once you've put their contents into the car. Swings and roundabouts.
