Re: Car shampoo recommendations please

I can't believe you lot have managed to make discussions about a bucket of suds last 6 pages.

Re: Jag servers throwing a wobbler?

I checked mine yesterday at home after reading your post, and it showed my car as still being at work. It also didn't show the journey home on the evening before. I didn't use the car yesterday.

Re: Pen / biro mark on leather seat back

Apparently some Isopropyl Alcohol on a cotton bud will gently remove ink but needs care and several goes.

Best source of Isopropyl Alcohol.......Halfords Electrical contact cleaner in a spray can.
Good all round gunk remover.

Re: Front sensor

Putting the wheels on full lock and taking out a few of the the screw fasteners on the relevant wheel arch liner can allow you to pull it to one side and give you access behind the bumper.
Might give you enough room to reach in and push it back into place.
