Car Maintenance

I put on my mechanics head today, to perform some simple maintenance on my car. One small rubber damper had fallen off which holds on the engine cover. Whilst I removed the engine cover, another one had fallen off, so I had to replace two. Simple job with a 14mm spanner and items from eBay.

If you look at the top (rocker cover) and bottom right (of picture) you’ll see the dampers (or lack off)

this was a little more difficult, to re-align the holes with the dampers than I thought!
