Have a read here about write offs, to see what your options are because legally the car is still yours until the claim is settled.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Bummer - car just chronically failed the MOT - chassis corrosion.

Just put new tyres on it less than 1 month ago and we don't have much cash spare at this time so looking for a replacement (Mondeo size) for a couple of years.

Had hoped it would have lasted another year or so to when mortgage is paid off but there you go.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

How extensive is the corrosion? I had the Metro jacking point that had caused corrosion of the floor-pan patched for only £70 locally and that involved removing the "U" channel, welding on a patch and then re-attaching the "U" channel and re-undersealing.

Some simple patching might be quite cheap.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Car needs a new battery. It's getting so weak that the dash lights go off and on when cranking and the computer resets. Still 9 years out of a battery isn't that bad.

Yes batteries on average tend to on average last about 10 years heero so that ain't bad.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

I have just finished tablets for Vertigo which have worked out fine as the dizziness has gone, but I am left with buzzing in my ears , it is worse when the house is quiet, Think it is Tinnitis , any advice please.

Couple of ex-colleagues (ex-Royal Signals / ex-RAF) suffer from this, due to wearing headphones for work for 10+years, and they say having music on in the background (can be quite low volume) helps.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

There is no cure for Tinnitis i have always had it, usually it doesn't bother me but occasionally it bugs the hell out of me and it takes a day or 2 to settle down, basically i will just wakeup 1 day and it won't be as annoying.

I still never know what triggers it to get worse.

You should go and see your doctor if you have never had it before.

Same for me. My main triggers are stress / anxiety, coffee / caffeine, loud noise and also smoking is a major trigger as well.

Thanks for this, eating too much of the wrong food may also trigger it for me like lots of sweets and chocolate but i am not 100% sure.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

White van man trying to say the accident was my fault thank goodness for dash cam footage hopefully then it will be clearly seen that it was in fact his own doing!

I hope so as if not I'm £300.00 down for the excess

White van man seems to think it will go down as a 50/50
