    Insurance Advice

    Thanks guys - as its already a sinking ship, my question is... should we just make the most out of a bad situation by at least calming on the mrs car insurance to have a car now repaired? As her premiums have already increased, or will they increase by a lot more if we do claim on her insurance? Or would I save more money in the long run pay for the repairs myself.

    Insurance Advice

    My Mrs was involved in car accident last year. Because of a lack of evidence and the other party now saying they have a witness (which they didn't at the scene of the accident), insurance have just admitted liability on my Mrs Behalf. We have tried really hard to fight it, but just feel like its not worth it anymore, because of the stress and my Mrs has already lost two years NCB because of this, so her premiums have gone up, which were trying to avoid. We have delayed getting her car repaired, because I didn't want to claim on her insurance, but since we have now lost the claim and her NCB, will she be any worse off if she now claims on her own insurance to have her car repaired as she was fully comp at the time? As I presume the worse has already happened now, where she has lost her NCB, and her premium won't go up by much if she does claim, as I feel its unfair for us to have to pay for the repair.

    Removing a connector

    Thanks Dan. Looking at the second pic I think it might be on the tab in back. Where I have highlighted. Might need to push in with a screwdriver and then pull.

    Removing a connector

    Working on a Honda Accord to replace an ignition switch. But for the life of me I can’t remove this connector. Trying to be gentle with it. It’s like a double connector. Think either side of the cable is supposed to detach. Tried putting a screwdriver between the gaps and pushing down. Front and back pics. Any advise guys?
  6. was heater definitely blowing air? because if the battery is on its way out the IBS system will turn the heater off until your battery is fully charged. It could be this if you do a lot of short journeys.

    oil level increase e60 525d m57 strange?

    There was a thread on here with a guy who had the exact same problem as you, only difference his car was still under dealer warranty. Think it was dpf in the end. However, would you still want an engine that is allowing diesel to sweep through the o-rings, or is this acceptable in a diesel engine.

    Nobody thinks of the disabled, who's lives are challenging enough without the need to have to figure out how to get down the street safely, because some idiot has parked there car on a pavement, which means wheelchair/ mobility scooters can't get down the street without going onto the road!
