I finally got around to removing the ghastly spare wheel carrier on the A Series.
Started out with all good intentions of using sockets and spanners then after needing to take the bumper off but to do that I needed to take the whole tow bar off I went for a different approach and just got the angle grinder and cut the bottom plate off where the bearing sits then it just dropped on the floor.
I can not believe how much that thing weighs.
Should help the mpg.
Was going to put the spare on the roof but that then made the beast 2.15m talks and I won't fit in the car park.
So for now no spare for day to day as tyre weld will do the job but if I go off down Violets lane the spare will get chucked in the back just in case.

A little transplant of a broken wiper arm from Grünstreifen to Mrs' Godzilla. It broke yesterday while I did put some snow and ice from the windscreen with an ice scraper.
Spare (used) is ordered already.
Kind regards,
Ian

Thankyou. The standard grille looks horrible compared to the newer grille and the headlights are better than the original headlights.

Not much really over the last few weeks other than

Fitted a new alternator ... :)

Went out for a days laning ... :thumbup:

'Washed' the truck through Brokenborough Ford... :roll:

Fitted a new alternator ... :lol:
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here

replaced the rear discs and pads which was a piece of cake, then attempted the fronts and oh my god i might as well be disassembling the sodding space shuttle! wheel bolts, centre hub bolts, circlip then 3 screws then a strange nut thing then the 6 inner hub bolts, took me 3 hours to figure all that out at which point it struck me that they had sent me the wrong front discs
