Well, it's a bit longer than expected....

The "oil" in the power steering bottle has been changed too. The fact is that a 25 year old "oil" don't leak with a 25 years old seal. The leak appears with new oil :-D
So the seal will have to be found and changed.

The twoo hoses going to the heating have been changed too? And so we've found that :(

And last but not least....
The car has been refused by the Belgian MOT becausse of that :evil:


They found it is not an "original part" so we have to put the old disc back on place just to go to the MOT

Yes it is stupid :evil:

But the end is close :wink:
