It was seeing that that made me think of doing it, but I want to know if everything will stay in place if I leave the shafts in?

No-one tried it with the shafts in then? Confused

What are you trying to remove/achieve? You should be able to remove the diff cover with the shafts in place and the diff stay where it is, but I'm not sure what you're going to gain from doing that as haven't you stripped the thread on the casing? You won't be able to remove the diff itself, the speedo drive housing or the larger speedo drive cog with the driveshafts in place.

Oh I don't care about the stripped threads lol, that's easily solved by hammering the bolt in. Wink

Amazingly it seems to have worked, diff casing came off and allowed me to to get the bearing square so the speedo drive now fits square and it holds a litre of gear oil. Of course the reused diff seals are leaking as expected so can't put any more oil in than that. lol

Also just checked fuse Dee mentioned for heater controls, both fine.

It was difficult to find the drive to do it tbh. But bearing in mind it had to be done, it wasn't that bad.

Anywho... Itwasntme lol

After sorting that, I gave it a hoover and a wash and took ad pictures so it will be for sale as soon as the V5 arrives. If anyone on here wants it, drop me a PM.

I should hope it does look clean in the dark and wet, Matt! lmao

Lol Bash, it's slower than a 2.1 with a big turbo... Not that you'd want to drive it fast on Proxes with shite tracking, let alone in the wet, Focus is quicker through the twisties and cruising at speed! At least the '6 has acceleration (eventually) and noise though. Wink lol

So took this to the retro meet with rowells Rallye tonight and amazingly didn't break down...

Well, except the window wouldn't close when I got there lol...seems to have just been a door loom plug though. lol

Update on the heater issue... if I set off with the dial on cold, sometimes it will stay cold for the entire trip, if I move to hot then back to cold it stays hot though! Confused. I'm out of ideas there, the panel still doesn't illuminate but the ac and recirc buttons do, and the fan speed control works so it's obv getting power.

Also got some bolt extractors for 2 quid off eBay so may charge up the drill and try to get one of those stuck in the rear arb bolt this weekend. And see if I've got a washer to put on the strut top nut which is knocking like mad.

I still don't have the v5 yet. Undecided

So I don't have the V5 because the seller forgot to post it... Makes a change... Rolleyes

Oh and after last nights run its dropped a load more gear oil on the car park. Dodgy Anyone tried this stuff? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/F-F-Drive...RTM2063723

I tried some cheap stuff from Wilko that made no difference at all.

Be VERY careful with those, as more often than not all that happens is that you snap the extractor off in the hole and then you're in a whole world of pain.

If you must use them (and personally I wouldn't, especially £2 ones that'll likely be made of chocolate) then make sure that you drill the hole as large as you safely can without risking damaging the threads so that you can use the largest extractor.

It goes without saying that you'll need some decent sharp drill bits too.

Yeah tbh I decided not to risk it in the end, new owner can fix it.

As for the oil, I did soak up what I could first, it's just the stain left, no actual oil as there's no rainbows when it's wet.

Don't trust myself burning it do I just hope it weathers in now lol.

If you have any brake cleaner it will usually get rid of any oil stains.

Ha, I wondered who would see that first! Waiting for the influx of lols at the price tbf... I've really cocked up the pictures there, complete wrong order and some of the outside shots are missing, fail! Will be going on ebay tomorrow anyway, I'll hopefully get that one done right lol.

Re height - that's with an empty boot as well so not as low as it has been! lol

It's the angles, was basically 'shit, take pictures quickly before the people return who's spaces I've borrowed as they aren't covered in gear oil'... Wink

But srsly, I've updated the pics to a better order with a couple that aren't rushed shite.
