My external temp gauge is reading 10 degrees below what it should so I followed some posts saying it is behind the mirror. Removed the mirror only to find it isn't in there exactly, it is under the arm of the mirror. I tried to remove it only to break the lug on it, but it looks like it needs replaced anyhow and a door-card off job to re-wire the new one in. Seems to be a common fault.

You can't tease us like that without saying what you actually do, intrigued!

The rear wiper assenmbly in my 850 and in the V70 need removed and the main shaft greased. The 850 wiper is slooooowing down and the previous owner of the V70 said the fuse was blowing on the rear wiper motor which suggests excessive current draw due to seizing bearing shaft. After the trouble I had getting the front wipers off I have ordered one of these non affiliated tools:-

Woops, my mistake. I'm a Deck Cadet on ships. Kind of like the RN's equivalent to a midshipman i think, but on the Merchant Fleet. I've got the degree part already, now i need the license.

Wished I hadn't put the summer tyres back on two weeks ago what with the heavy snow today....
It handled it OK though, even with 3/4 worn treads
