Unfortunately the car showed signs of PCV failure in the way home last night so ordered a replacement and gasket this morning. As expected the diaphragm in the pcv had split in multiple places...

Whilst i was in the area i decided to take the opportunity to fit the new valve cover gasket that has leaked since buying the car. It was that dry and brittle it was like plastic.

Well… I’m pretty sure my A4 has a magnet for accidents.

Van driver though he could squeeze past me as I was about to reverse on to a customers drive… it’s not long been fixed since the sheep incident!!!

Hmmm… Not too much damage, but I think it’s a new wing and spraying to blend in.

Someones been a busy bee. :thumbs up: :yahoo:

That valve cover gasket looks marginally better than what mine was like....lol, and they go crusty quite quickly aswell.
DV diaphragm looks like it's been leaking for a while Alex , one split looks older than the rest, good job done chap.

Calipers are top stuff Alex , great colour too, and with 18" alloys they look massive, really fit the rim void well.:icon thumright::icon thumright:

making good progress now then.

Done a few bits today as well whilst the rain kept off this afternoon.
Oil and filter change, pretty mucky this time round so a worthwhile change.
Also removed my DV as i suspected a boost leak, nothing to be found a miss though.
Replaced the A6 snub mount bung with an OE bung I had in a box, not the best items but it's new and seems to have made an improvement.
Then spent a few hours swapping out both front driveshafts, been having some clonking on full lock and vibration at higher speeds, anyway all sorted now and lovely and smoooooth again with no nasty clonking.:yahoo:

so next week its cambelt/water pump replacement.

I was expecting it to be perished Rob but it was way worse than that. Had a right job removing it from the valve cover.

With pcv has made a huge difference to how the car drives now, it seems way smoother so all is rosie on the engine front now.

And yes really happy with the oem+ choice in colour. Just need to figure out a permanent solid fixing solution for the abs wiring and brake lines

Todays job on the Falcon - Replaced the Snub Nose Mount for a Powerflex version.
You can see from the pic it needed doing, as the old one was like an out of date marshmallow (all crumbly and nasty).

Very easy job when it was up on a 4 post lift.
Refitted.

just a small job but a long overdue one.
Replaced the rear ARB bushes , original ones were a bit sloppy so time to fit some new ones, all nice and tight on the twisty back roads again. :yahoo:
