simple lhm leak

Post by sdelasal »

came out the front door - ummm, a damp patch under the bx.... Oh S***. I see drips off the front driver side 'chassis leg' ... ... wet all the way up the wheel arch to the drain hole from where the washer bottle sits. umm - I don't recall any pipes in that area..open the bonnet ...my spare bottle of lhm has been leaking! - no idea why but very happy. I'll be more optimistic next time.

I remember this happened to El Presidente Jon Wood and it took him a while to figure it out. Quite a relief when you do!

A couple of years ago I was suspecting the neighbour's cat had been marking his territory on my BX, since there was a distinct cat urine smell when the heater was on. Took a few weeks of getting worse day by day before I realized it was the spare gearbox oil can leaking in the mentioned location. :oops:

Ive had that happen to me so i now keep the stuff in the back of the motor.
Did make me think a bit though when i saw how much green blood was on the drive.
