Not so much for the spares but so when it won't start on a morning you can still walk to work and be on time.

I'm going for the street, centre console is out.
Someone's hacked it before. Just got to grab some tools tonight from the barn and will tinker with it after work this week.

Today I layed some sheets down and degrease the box as it's covered on congealed mud and most fluids that should be in the car.

I used comma hyperclean and must say its
Probably the first engine degreaser I've used that actually does something.

Sorted it yet?

Or should we send someone to check if he is stuck under a gearbox, under a disco at the road side?

Not yet.

Just degreased it today and removed the gear lever and Had a think. I've kinda formed a plan. I've nabbed tools and a spare fork from the barn but couldn't get the jack and stands in the jimny.

Slight concern was when I went to the barn there
Was random eastern European bloke walking on the farm. Claimed he was lost and trying to find Milton Keynes and his brother. Mk is about 12miles miles away so I'm calling b.s.

Anyone whos been to visit me would know that the farms not exactly near anything, so how he got there is a mistery but I think he's probably looking for stuff to pinch or diesel. The farmer escorted him to the road and pointed him which way to walk.

Sounds dodgy Andy. The farm is well hidden, the barns even more so, especially with private gated access

Yeah that is a bit odd. Your place is bang splat in the middle of nowhere. If he was going to nick something though how would he move it with no car?

Maybe it was a car he wanted to pinch?
