Re: The Towing thread

Agreed! The gearbox doesn't know it's towing. It simply feels a load and switches down when torque reaches the computer determined switch point. There was a time when gearboxes had gears 1, 2, 3...

Re: CRD oil on special

No problem at all, even with the old oils. 20L will give only two and a bit oil changes anyway.

Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

Bill,

Thanks for the pic. However, without the bumper cover to support the felt fender lining, what's stopping it being dragged against the wheel at highway speeds or during water crossings?

Havoline Fully Synthetic C3 5W-30 ticks all the boxes except Chrysler MS-11106. I'd be perfectly happy to use it if it was difficult to get Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30.

Yes the QL stays locked but automatically unlocks when the car gets up a bit of speed. Chances are the technician would not get up enough speed.
