I think he made more work of that than necessary Marc, I've never had to move the bumper or headlamp and in the first few frames draining the tank can be done by disconnecting the hose at the bottom join into a bowl instead of having to keep using empty LDS pots and having an elbow full.

Not guilty Gibbo - It was Steve who posted that - useful, but a bit of a bloody mess!

I also repaired the suspension pump on my C5. Some of the pics might be useful.
