Sprite in council rented garage (2 mins walk away) ... after I repaired roof ( with a little help from a friend) ... and after council sent letter saying they’re putting rent up ... er, that’s not how it works !
Back to estate ... struggling with gear lever linkage ... never been tight , now feels like am stirring a pudding!
Looking at hazy manual ( not a typo) ... looks like I’ll have to take whole thing off and rebuild
Bought a tow eye .... too short to fit on clubman front ... oh fiddly dum
Lateral thinking ... bought a newer style towing eye, ditched the mounting bolt, took a visit to local specialist fixings and replaced bolt with alternative ( with some fettling ... drills and hammers) got it to fit .
All in for half money of classic mini towing eye that would fit clubman front
