Considering the sill issue , wonder what clever @&#%'#- thought of the design for that area of the car , boasting a 12 year anti corrosion warranty was just naive , my zx though had spot on the driver side same area but that was sorted 3 years ago and not as big an area, to be expected of a car over 20+ years .

Plenty of videos on YouTube about engine bay jobs and space in the bay is tight my question if I don't or can't find a video , are the glow plugs front of or back of engine something I overlooked the other day when viewing the one I went to see.
Cheers all

Ours is great - it's the 1.6 HDi Exclusive. Goes like SOAS, and round here in hilly Wales we get a tad under 60 MPG. Driving position / seats are slightly higher which is why we got it. In the nearly 13 years since we've had it, it's only covered 43k miles. The only things we've had done is a new dealer-fitted headlamp (water ingress), the alarm module (I did a write-up on that), and the front suspension springs and struts and a new comms unit. Just recently had the windscreen replaced at a large crack appeared from the corner and worked its way across the screen one day :shock: Must of been a pothole although I do avoid those like the plaque where possible.

Incidentally they replaced it with the later athermic purple looking ones that are supposed to keep it cooler in bright sunlight - so didn't complain.

She's been faultless apart from that.

Not a bean - it's been solid and we use it as the daily now, leaving the C5 to keep the mileage down.
