Well I got me a partner and swapped the wheels over , the battery as well . Took it for a MOT only failed on a couple of things , number plate bulb, horn and slightly over emissions. Did not think that was bad seeing the car has sat for 2 years . So will be changing the fuel filter and air filter , running some injector cleaner through. Bulb changed already . Horn needs investigation when the rain stays away for a couple of hours. Picasso will be broken and I have got myself an engine for use at a later date.
Bulb was my fault as I was so engrossed in making sure all indicator bulbs were the right colour forgot to check number plate bulbs completely and horn I did not even think about, that's the trouble when you get older LOL.
When the rain stopped I was able to get out and rectify the light and changed the fuel filter also running some catacleaner through. But the horn was a little bit perplexing as to where it was, first I removed the mud guard n/side and proceeded to remove the bumper when i had a thought of removing the n/side headlight. I was able to do that because I had the mud guard out of the way and I could see up and find the bottom bolt for the h/light , once out I find the horn and lo and behold not even plugged in. So today Monday I took it for the retest and come away with a clean bill of health , no advisories. Result.
Not bad for a car which had stood in a garden for 2 years and cost me to buy £250.00.
