    Default It lives!

    Due to an upcoming change in circumstances I've finally got a reason to get the Q4 back on the road and usable again. The inlet manifold project is back on hold, the car starts, so its time to get it out of the garage to give myself some room to recommission it.
    No problems so far and it managed to drag itself out of the garage under its own steam. Full belt kit is ordered and on its way over. During that little job I'll drop the alternator down to a local electrical motor engineer and get it rebuilt. Then its time to run it around for a while to sort out any niggles and it will be ready for a road trip back to the UK.

    Moving out of the garage for the first time in ages. The grumbling you can hear in the video is the water pump which is most definitely on its last legs!

    No seized rear calipers?

    That pump does sound a bit rough!

    Handbrake was left off, and the garage is very dry, the brake disks even stayed clean.

    And the car isn't being run again until the pump is changed now. Just in case.

    Poor thing, sounds really sick with that dodgy pump.
