Just booked the Astra in for an aircon service...first one ever. It hisses and tries, but it really has a bad time. Low gas, I feel. They're even dropping me back to work/picking me up to collect..not bad for £39. :) Also bought some "Window Socks" for thw back, to screen the kids from this sun.
2 jobs down..still need to get it booked in to check the brakes/wheel bearings and see if I can narrow down this squeaking, and change the dying aux-belt tensioner. I was about to do a cambelt, but it's at 79k..I bought it at 55k, it's had at least 1 new one since then..minimum change interval is 40k/4 years..some say 60k/6 or 80k/8 depending on year.
Maybe next year for that. Heh.
