Took dizzy for MOT after replacing reverse light switch which I found wasn't working during my pre-test inspection, only to discover it would have been a failure as post Sept 2009 need them to work. Passed with flying colours, one advisory 'very slight play in steering'. Garage not much experienced in characteristics of kombis. Very Happy Very Happy Smile Very Happy

Hi Dizzy

You commented on your MOT
"Passed with flying colours, one advisory 'very slight play in steering'. Garage not much experienced in characteristics of kombis "

Please can you say are you running the original steering box or is it a replacement rack & pinnion system?

Best wishes, hope to meet up at the coming Kombi Sleepover

Hi osg, best wishes to you too. Smile I have the rack and pinion without PAS. They were referring to the idler pin which is common to both.

Thanks for the information, Dizzy

I had assumed that all possible sources of free-play were replaced when changing to rack & pinnion steering. We live and learn - especially on this Forum

Packed Tallulah and sent her off with the wife and kids to The Green Gathering festival, Chepstow.

Max helped me move a caravan.

I had previously removed the pop-top boards, as we didn't need them for children and they were heavy and high in the bus, so lowered the centre of gravity a bit.

However, I missed having a shelf to put things on when we were camping without an awning or pop-up tent. So yesterday I found an old piece of chipboard in the garage and cut it to form a smaller top shelf.

As part of my stamp on things at VW Kampers, when we supply a Kombi with new bed boards now, we are not fitting them with hinges - simply the 1 large section with 2 half sections. That way people can choose how to use their boards to suit. Keeps things flexible. Very Happy

Drove up to the Peak District and stayed in a campsite there for a couple of days (and a football match!), then down to Quorn, staying in a railway station car park for a work event on Tuesday.

Went to Derwent water dam and the village of Eyam, plus also driving back home near the village of 'Barton in the beans'. Laughing

Drove to Chichester, via Guildford and stayed overnight in the car park of The Pheasant Inn, Singleton, for free. cheers

The pub had a beer festival going on and had several motorhomes staying for the whole weekend, it seemed. We missed the music earlier in the evening Sad but did get to have a drink.

Drove up to Quorn, last Monday, staying on a working farm campsite until Friday. I was undertaking some thinking-focused development at a nearby centre, so it was good to be able to cycle to the centre each day.

No, it wasn't and started working at about 6am each day!

I did, however, buy some Quorn mince in the Quorn branch of the Co-op. cheers
