slightly transparent and not black!. Any whiteness or gungy/mayo
looking stuff in the oil could indicate HGF!!.
level (keep it on the max line keep the water & antifreeze
- Windscreen washer
fluid level (just top that one up till it overflows or near the neck of
the bottle adding in some suitable screen wash)
- brake fluid level
(under the hood) fluid level should be on the Max line (it shouldn't
move) if it does you have a leak somewhere in your braking system.
- Check all
headlight, sidelight, brake light, indicator and number plate bulbs.
- Watch your
temperature gauge on your dash, if it goes more than 3/4 you have a

- A lot of people have
complained that its very difficult to get hold of
McGard for replacement locking
wheel nut keys. Try ringing them on 00800 25993400, its a German phone
number, you will be given various options, one of which is an email
address. Someone I know used this method and had a replacement key
delivered within a few days for about £12 (April 2007)
