Car passed its MOT

Well my car has passed its MOT, after a few things needed doing to it. I took it in to National on Cowbridge Road East in Canton.

The first being indicator bulb, it was a faded almost clear light when it should have been more orange, another problem I had that needed sorting was the CV joint dust cover which was warn on the driver side.

Now I had this done only the week befor at Bowsher's Garage on Cowbridge Road East. I have now set the two garages against each other.

I messaged National's customer service team to lodge a complaint with them, also lodged a complaint with Bowsher's. One of them was telling fibs about that part.

Bowsher's have no reason to lie to me about not doing the work on my car last week, and neither do National about the problem they said needed doing.

Bowsher's did say that a number of National customers have gone accross to them after poor work being carried out.... hmmmmm

I'm not sure who to trust or beleive with reguard to this matter, so will wait on the outcome.

It would be good to hear from others who have had problems with National.

#Brexit 2 month's away

#BREXIT isn’t far off, but Mrs. May’s plan crashed out during a vote in Parliament.
At the moment lots of companies are planning on moving from the UK, and those that are staying are planning on scaling back.
UK regions such as Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland would have been entitled to a 22 per cent raise in support from the EU under the budget plans for the 2021-2027 period, up from the €10.6 billion or £9.3 billion that the UK receives in the current 2014-2020 budget package, according to the report, by a network association of European regions.
This funding loss will be most keenly felt in two regions: Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, and West Wales and the Welsh Valleys. These are classed as ‘less developed regions’, and currently receive most of the UK’s regional funding.
The UK must not crash out with a #NoDealBrexit , it would be far better for one of these to happen: 1: #Remain 2: #ThePeoplesVote 3: stay in the #CustomsUnion 4: enter a #NorwegianStyleBrexit
If we crash out with

UK and the EU

So the people on the UK have had the vote, to 'remain' in or 'leave' the EU... the vote was a close one to leave, which has caused no end of problems.

The pound has lost value, companies have decided to ditch the UK and its workers and shift to other countries, Scotland want to go it alone and Northern Ireland wants to reunite with Eire and leave the UK.

David Cameron is to stand down (....no real loss there then!), Jeremy Corbyn won't stand down from Labour even though he cabinet is jumping ship.

One thing that Labour said during it's 'leave' campaign was that the NHS was to get an extra £350m a week... which they now say 'sorry this won't happen' a out and out lie from them then - which when people saw this made people vote

Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood said in Cardiff earlier today 'We have to hold the leave campaigners to the vow they made during the EU campaign, including an extra £350m for the NHS every week.
We need to make sure the …

Car Battery Problem

Went out to start the car the other day and discovered the battery was flat. Had the break down out, the jump started  the car with no problem (so that ruled out the starter motor and solenoid). I put a multi meter on it and it was putting close to 14.7v in (so not alternator)

I sat with car running to put charge in the  battery. I disconnected the negative lead, checked what the battery was holding 12.85v. The breakdown person said to perform a parasitic draw test, so I did that and found no problem.
Was told to leave negative lead disconnected, the battery should hold its charge with that lead disconnected. Went out the following morning and it had lost charge again, it had dropped down to 12.08v. Just managed to start the car, went for a longish drive. I then disconnected the positive as well, just in case. This morning it was at 12.42v
Took the battery to Euro Car Parts for them to put it on a drop test. Had replacement battery.
This is a useful guide:
12.65V - 100% good 12.45V -…
