Dropped the SC at Powerhouse in Chesterfield & spoke to Dave at Salon. THe SC will be done in a week to 10 days whilst the outlet manifold should be in stock in about a week.
With everything crossed it all should come back together giving me enough time to test before the next Goodwood sprint.... Gutted at having to pull out of the double header at Blyton this coming weekend.
Bought another M45 to finish the season.. Dave at Powerhouse showed me on my original SC where the rotors had been in contact with the casing & also each other. I’m going to salvage the pulley & refurbished snout bearings. Then fit the Salon outlet pipe & hopefully all will be good again.

Finally the Salon outlet arrived to replace the melted 3D printed one from Skuzzle. Despite being substantially taller, I managed to get it to fit under the bonnet by cutting off some of the reinforcement structure. Then had to muck about with silicon reducers as the pipe didn’t match the previous instal. No matter, the important thing is that it’s in & I have an outside chance to win the Classic Marques Championship.

howardb66: Halfords online purchasing system is a complete waste of time and money. I paid extra for a delivery Monday & still not here. Just spoke to DHL customer services, it might be delivered by tomorrow. Useless twats.

freddyboy: How do you remove the radio from a RHD 2006 Mk3 please ? - removed the glovebox + 2 screws, but can't see the 10mm bolt, pulled on the unit, no success- all the videos are on LHD cars - is there a 10mm bolt to remove on the LHS of the radio
