    Default Broke down this morning ....

    .. the car .... not me.

    It started first thing with no problem after a week of not being used. Drove 20 miles without problem in both auto & flappy paddle, I slowed for a bend & got a bit of kangerooing and a knock from the gearbox area it it carried on ok. Came to a stop & there was more knocking as I thought it was about to stall .... it hadn't but I thought it had so in the best of traditions tried turning it off & back on again.
    It wouldn't start .... ie not turning over.
    It was in neutral so just pushed to a nearby car park & left it to think things over.

    I have a new clutch actuator in my cellar still in the box if you get to needing to borrow it to eliminate the problem.
