Well after collecting the old girl on Tuesday after her MOT test, which she sailed through without even an advisory, I managed to get a 2 inch wood screw in the nearly new tyre. Luckily our local garage was able to repair it for a tenner.
Then, on the way home today, somebody was on the wrong side of the road and hit the wing mirror, busting off the black trim and gouging out the coloured bit. The missus was well pissed off. The other car didn't stop - it sped off and it was dark so she decided to not turn round and chase after.
Then she went out bowling. 20 minutes after she left I got a phonecall 'The clutch made a funny noise and now won't work'
The AA came out in about 30 mins and discovered the dreaded clutch through the bulkhead. He managed to get a spacer in it to give a bit of clutch, and we managed to limp the old girl to our preferred garage (Norwich Autocare in Norwich in case anyone is interested). Hopefully it won't be too expensive to repair
The clutch has been stiff for a while and we were going to try a new cable. Any thoughts on what causes a stiff clutch? It's the original clutch afaik on 119k miles.
So - that's the three things! Oh well. It is what it is.
