    Coolant tank bottle broke on me 13miles out from home.lol. Check the repair skills

    13miles from home, coolant tank bottle pipe broke off. It had a little crack in it from before, but guess it got worst and gave in.

    a little bit of electric tape and super glue did the trick for now...OMG, superglue cost me £4.59 from a service station, could not believe it. extortion.



    need to purchase a coolant tank lol

    Funny! exactly what i had to do on my ACT!with red tape and super glue from a petrol station
    the next day it was steel putty till the bottle came in... this must have been a design fault
