COVID-19 Coronavirus Message Updated: 27th March
Mail Order Customers:
Our carrier DHL is operating normally across the world (including in Italy), with the exception of Hubei province in China. Allow an extra day for delivery, just in case.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road even if many of the parts manufacturers are now closing.
Workshop Customers:
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. We have no signs of illness in the company and are taking all precautions to minimise contact and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy.
  * To help those in self isolation, we are now offering a free Collect & Return Service of up to 30 miles, so if you have any servicing due in the next 3 months now might be good time to get it out of the way without even having to open your front door. We will disinfect your car on collection and return.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30 March will be extended for half a year. However, you are still obliged to keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition, so if you need to use your car in this period, it is still recommended to get one done.

Replacing a roll bar link on a 156, 147 or a GT

While the vehicle is on the ground loosen the road wheel nuts but do not remove. Jack both sides of the car up and make safe using axle stands, then remove the road wheel.

Now this is the interesting bit, sometimes there are flats for a spanner on the rear of the roll bar link as shown here

and sometimes there aren't and you have to use an allen key in the end of the link. I have pictures of both forms of attachment here. before you attempt to undo either clean the visible threads thoroughly with a wire brush. Undo both ends of the link and replace with the new roll bar link.
