Thanks to Marty, who sent me 2 cars stickers despite the post office having pinched the bunce out of the envelope [-X

Best not to send cash in the post then ....

The 16TXS is going really well, it did have a flat'ish spot performance wise, which seemed to clear coming back from Gloucester the other morning (all right I was thrashing it!).

Front seems very sluggish to rise in the morning ... any ideas?

LHM level won't make much difference - first you'll notice is STOP and hydraulic level/pressure light coming on when you go round corners or brake hard as the stuff slops round in the reservoir.

They tend to be slow in cold weather. Sometimes helps if you turn the steering against load while you are waiting.

Give the HC links a good rub with some grease, make sure the Accy sphere is in rude health too (not ticking every 5 seconds as mine was before it got swapped).
No worries about the stickers. :wink: They are still breeding :roll:

Thanks for those replies...

The LHM isn't low , the accumulator is new... and the HC is probably stuck due to lack of use, I'll take a look tomorrow...
