Hi it will either be a driveshaft or steering rack guaiter and if its the driveshaft you can buy a universal guaiter and the same if its a steering rack guaiter at about £10 plus 1 hrs labour i hope this helps all the best Donald

I wish! she ia a 1985 mayfair, a bit tricked out bless her, kind of mixed the old with the new - keep her classic.

It's true! you can't beat a mini. took on a Porche in mine! i won! they can't corner better than a mini!

I had to buy my clio for reliability to get to work as speed humps are an issue!!

thats cool! you used to rally mini's!, i bet that was fun!

Not too sure how my clio would fair!!!
:d :d :d it was great to say the least not rallyed for many years now but i have to say i do miss it but it was always money money money.They do use the clio to rally at the lower classes but i think Renault shound bring a 2.0 Turbo 4x4 on the market for just that reason group n rally car i think it would do well but iam only a humble man;) renault would not listen to me

Good to hear you are getting on well with Vista Donald, thing I dislike the most is it's not as easy to move things from one place to another, or maybe I have not found it yet. The games are much better, and the security is very good, the built in Photo software is not too bad either

Hi Donald, yes the freedom to move about is a big advantage of a laptop, you may find a lot of your software does not work on Vista,anything you connect via a usb usually wroks if you just plug and play rather than install via a disc, as Vista searches for the correct drivers, the disc only tends to have drivers for Xp and before on it . Enjoy :)
