I don't remember to have ever seen a turbodiesel 306 with this engine, but the naturally-aspirated ones were very popular in Argentina.

This wee 306 continues to impress!

used it on Sunday to facilitate collection of my brother's new E38 730i and attempt to collect a Lada Niva- although that didn't go quite according to plan..

Despite only ordering the Glowplugs yesterday, they arrived this morning!

No time like the present, so I set about installing the hugely valuable (11.99) new ones..

First up was a liberal skooshing of proprietary lubrication fluid.


Then out for a drive to my Unit - with another squirt when I arrived.

A bit of faffing later and it was back to my Gaff, and time to tackle them (after lunch and another skoosh, of course!)



The super jointy faffery sockets as supplied by my neighbour made short work of 3 out of the 4 plugs - number 2 is directly behind the fuel pump and looked a sod to get at, so discretion was applied

Number 1 is a straight shot, no problemo


Number 3 needs the small breather pipe moving to get in - you can see the nipple it connects to directly above the ratchet


Number 4 lives next to the fuel filter - pulling the top off made it easier to reinstall - removing the oil cap/dipstick creates space to turn the ratchet/bar


Suffice to say, the new ones looked significantly shinier than the old, and I think the 3 new have reduced the cold start drama!

Think I need front arms and dampers on this-feels a bit vague especially on Left hand bends when "pressing on".

something to look at during the weekend.

any suggestions where to start?

Ye olde rugdoctor performed its usual sooky miracle








However, despite spending plenty time checking for leaks with a hose, and making sure the sunroof drains were clear, the leak has continued!

We found some water getting in at he base of the window, but it seems to just run down the door and drain out. That said it is coming in at the rear, and running out the front, which seems slightly odd..
Its really starting to annoy me!
