The quotes are starting to come in for the indicator lamps... Looks as if it's going to be cheaper to get the chav/boy racer ones on ebay. Trouble with buying car parts is you aren't just paying for the part, you're also paying for its storage for the last 8 years. So a piece of plastic which starts off with a manufacturing cost of about tuppence ends up cost £28.

You could try a breakers yard, most of them take them off already and as you have the skill to fit it, it will be probably about £10. Keep an eye on the water/coolant, if you need to top up again before you go to Cornwall, you have a leak somewhere. Make sure you have a bottle of water in the car for topping up too. Sometimes I am really proud that my Dad made me do stuff on my car and help him, all three of us sisters are able to look under the hood and scratch our chins and go, "It's gonna cost a lot to put right!" along with the best of men!

OK Bottle of water... Check.

Couldn't see a leak anywhere. Checked inside the car too... because last time I had I leak in the water system it was the hose to the heater. I never had problems with water leaks on my VW Type 1.

Found Indicators on ebay... see next post.
