This van is the bane of my life at the minute. Every month something goes wrong. Something breaks or falls off. Something rattles loose and bounces down the motorway or rolls past me when I stop at the lights. But I still love though! This month it was pretty good to me at MOT time, only costing brake pads and a brake calliper, a reset and properly fitted handbrake cable, a rear number plate, 3 bulbs, brake juice and a windscreen wiper.
On the way to Kerry’s yesterday I noticed my sun visor that’s mounted on the door pillars was rattling quite violently. I didn’t put much thought into it until my pal Lee pointed out its fitted wrong. It was too level, causing the wind to shake it like it was trying to get the last bit of ketchup out the bottle! So today I set about putting it right. What a fucking job that turned out to be! A three minute job took 3 hours. Turned out the knob head that fitted it cross threaded all of the adjusting bolts and only two fixing screws actually made it into the van structure, the rest just sitting in the plastic trim.
