After asking a question yesterday I was politely reminded that I have never done this so here goes.

Car is actually my wife's, a 2002 R170 200 Kompressor. It has always been garage serviced so to date I have not had a lot of use for the forum (unlike my own car, a Rover 75 of same vintage) but recently little things like the windscreen washer motor are needing attention so I have had a look.

We live in Jersey, Channel Islands ( 9 miles by 5 miles) so the car does not do a lot of mileage and with a 40 mph maximum speed limit does not get fully exercised unless we go to France or the UK. Still, its nice to have in the summer :smile:

Regards all.

Steve

Welcome from a sunny Berkshire.

Just love Jersey, we had our honeymoon there way back in 1970 and went back summer 2016. Lots of changes since then!
