Re: Water leak into cabin

Re: Engine Knocking/Rattle! :(

i hope you can get it sorted soon. and that it's a small problem.
while it's no competition, if my engine man was right? i'll buy him a coffee on your behalf.

i could even try to scratch up some cam pulleys if you don't find any. :wink:

keen to know the end result.
