Unfortunately, due to my special ability to keep bringing neglected cars home with me, I now have a dire need to make some space, so the BMW will be sold.
With the driveshaft all fresh and clean, all I needed to do was crawl under the car and refit it. While under there though, I thought it prudent to replace the last remaining fluids.
In my quest to tidy up the loose ends and get the Mini ready for sale, the car received an oil service and a simple but impactful cosmetic change.
Today I share with you, a lesson in the KISS principle.
With the major source of oil leaks under the car sorted, I needed to repair some collateral damage from the previous leaks. The transmission mounts had turned to jello and weren’t doing a lot.
I couldn’t handle it anymore, the amount of oil that was leaking from the sump was getting out of hand. I needed to replace the gasket.
Right, so clearly that was a lot of work done in short space of time. This post will bring me up to date now.
People have asked why I do what I do; buying broken cars and fixing them. It’s because despite all the blood, sweat and swears, it’s fun and nothing beats the satisfaction of that first drive.
Another big day working on the Mini today, but not everything went to plan.
