That tin hat theory got there then..... a biological virus riding the airwaves?

There is however a surefire method of protection for anyone who "believes".
They need to take their phone, wrap it in tin foil, place it on a solid, flat surface and give it a good smack with a heavy object..... that will keep them off TwitFace which is the actual culprit in spreading utter tripe.

As Covid rules are tightened, this appeared in the news -

"Police forces have been criticised for heavy-handed attempts to enforce the rules by fining two women for driving to a beauty spot five miles from their homes for a walk and threatening to issue penalties to people throwing snowballs." :rolleyes:

Additional - I just read this about the two women who went for a walk - "One officer told her a hot drink she had brought with her was also against the guidelines – because it counted as a picnic." And this was after they had been read their rights..... 🤬

This is why I have them written down.

But then the next problem is when my out-of-it cotton wool brain can't remember which PIN applies to what. If I use "secret code", can't then remember WTF the "code" means. :mad:

Sorry about the tooth! :eek:

Why do cars think they are smarter than we are. Was resetting my "service due" light last week and apparently there are TWO. One for oil changes (every 24months blah blah) and one for cabin filter (every 12months). To me this is crazy backwards. I still change my oil and filter ever year, especially on diesel engines. And why a cabin filter needs replacing twice as often as the oil is mad in my books. Can anyone point me towards an official Renault Captur service schedule? One that shows all service items and recommended intervals. Renault seem to treat maintenance data like state secrets nowadays.

Thanks Phil. Useful but it shows a 6month/10k km service interval which includes oil change. That seems over the top and the cabin filter is on 18mth schedule. Both different from my service lights. Confused

Welcome to modern motoring 2D.....
At least the beasty is reminding to change the cabin filter.... many drivers don't even know one exists let alone that it should be changed.
TBH, I simply do what I feel is needed, as you it's yearly for me unless mileage dictates earlier and reset the intervals when I do.... no chance of mileage being an issue ATM, since last March I'm only on my third fill up on the Q car and still on the first for the Kia, not full tanks at the fill ups either.

I'm with you there DD. It's just that I reset my service indicator when I did the oil change, then it came back on again. That's when I found out I had reset the wrong indicator. I need to keep some sort of formal record of what I do and when as I found out when I sold the Scenic. With all service records only on Renault's computers here, buyers of second hand cars usually refer to them. They still turn up their noses at my own efforts, as most people here use the main dealers to service their cars. I think that is because they are on some sort of finance agreement most of the time. Plus my Captur is still under warranty which I have probably negated already.
