COVID-19 Coronavirus Message Updated: 17th September
Mail Order Customers:
  *
Our carrier DHL is operating near normally across the world. Allow an extra day for delivery (2 days for Australia, 6 days for New Zealand), just in case. However, regular international postal services can have additional delays, and are not recommended for anything required within 6 weeks.
  * For the UK only, Royal Mail are delivering the vast majority of orders on time according to our data, but is experiencing higher levels of staff absences, so there may some local delays.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road. However, we are beginning to see supply delays from factory lockdowns around the world.
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 strict social distancing processes internally and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). In the circumstances, we have had to close our waiting room. 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. We also have full amount contactless payment systems.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30th March to 31st July will be extended for six months. However, you are still legally 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 strongly recommended to get one done.

Remove off side road wheel

Undo oil feed pipe to oil cooler above oil filter, you need a stumpy 22 mm spanner and it is extremely hard to undo

Remove other oil feed pipe to the oil cooler, again you need a stumpy 22mm spanner and it is also very difficult to undo

Remove oil cooler and pipes as one unit, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to get these pipes off the oil cooler and so you will need to replace the cooler and both pipes

Re fit new oil cooler and lines, top up oil and make sure that the brake is free of oil
