And well, the replacement wasn't anything I hadn't read or watched before, pretty straightforward (at least in my car, other models might be more complicated). They didn't even use a torque wrench (I'm guessing they know from experience the torques). One good thing of doing it there is that I'd probably be wrecking my head thinking I'm installing the tensor wrong until I realized it had a defect.

^ this is now my life :(
 
@motosubatsu - Yes. Yes it is.
 
you'd think I'd have learnt by now that bringing silly things like facts into a discussion is a fool's errand
 
@motosubatsu - Dude ... don't you know it. Those silly, little, pesky things ... facts. My goodness, are you nuts?
 
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 factually speaking I'm nuts..but according to some random dude on you tube I'm not so I don't know what to think any more
 
Today is my 5-year anniversary on MVM&R ... 1827 days consecutive. :o)
That, in-and-of itself, probably means I'm nuts.
 
12:04 PM
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 jeez man..don't you ever sleep?
:D
'grats though :)
 
@motosubatsu - Only on Sundays ... then only for an hour ... <refer back to your meme>
@motosubatsu - Thanks :o)
It's actually been easy to maintain, especially since I've become a Mod on here ... I need to be checking stuff anyway ... just showing up is all it takes.
 
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 and to think I was so pleased with myself for earning Fanatic over on TWP
 
@motosubatsu - LOL! Nah, you should still be pleased with yourself! :o) Getting Fanatic isn't as easy as it would seem. There are a couple of sites which I've continually failed at getting it because I'll space cadet being on there one day for some stupid reason.
You miss a day, then you have to start all over again. 100 days seems like nothing ... until you miss that one day, lol!
 
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 yeah I had a couple of false starts because it wouldn't occur to me to login over the weekend as the site would be dead
I think I got to 79 once and missed a day :D
 
Well, it is The Work Place right? Shouldn't it be closed down on the weekend?
 
12:10 PM
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 it may as well be... Sunday is tumbleweed-central
 
If it makes you feel any better, the sites I'm talking about, I was over 90 days and missed one ... argh
 
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 ouch..that's a real kick in the teeth!
 
@motosubatsu - And then some!
@motosubatsu - Don't tell that to @Zaid ... he works on Sunday (his work week is Sunday through Thursday). This is a cultural thing, I believe, and is normal for Qatar (and most likely the Middle East, for that matter).
 
12:49 PM
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 not too long ago it used to be a Sat-Wed working week. Then globalization took over
 
1:06 PM
@Zaid - Sheer craziness, I tell yah!
;-)

5:08 PM
Way too much fun for a Thursday ...
 
5:26 PM
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 it's my Friday.. I'm off work tomorrow
 
@motosubatsu - You and me both.
 
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 are you stalking me again?
remember.. the judge told you not to do that any more
 
I do, however, have a plumber coming to replace the main water valve at the house. Went to do some plumbing work the other day, shut the valve down, and water is still flowing ... argh. Going to cost me $250 to get it replaced. I'd fully be able to do the work, but I don't have the ability to shut the water off outside (at the meter).
@motosubatsu - So, unless you'll be in Virginia tomorrow ... no stalking involved. No stockings, either. Those don't come around until the end of the month.
@motosubatsu - Yah, that judge will get his ... this wasn't the Judge Dredd decision, was it?
 
5:44 PM
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 I'm off to my "Christmas Party" for work - something tells me I'm in for a better Friday :)
The joys of owning the company - the Christmas do translates as "what me and my good friend who works for me felt like doing and making the company pay for"
 
@motosubatsu going to the pub, then?
 
@RoryAlsop haha.. you'd think so but no, neither of us can actually drink at the moment due to medications
 
@motosubatsu hmmmm - laser quest?
 
we're off to a cookery school to learn how to make a christmas hamper packed with various festive treats
:D
 
@motosubatsu that sounds good
 
5:49 PM
@RoryAlsop should be a good laugh.. they give you breakfast and lunch etc as well (in their Michelin-starred kitchen)
 
@motosubatsu I'd be up for that. How do I become an employee? ;-P
 
@RoryAlsop lol.. I doubt I could afford you!
 
@motosubatsu - Yah, I think Rory's salary range is a little bit up there ;-)
And the side gig of Rock-n-Roll God ... way too expensive.
 
6:11 PM
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Had great band practice last night - all ready for our 10th anniversary gig. 1st Feb.
I'm mildly nervous - I'm working in China the week before, and I arrive back in Scotland 6 hours before the gig
assuming no delays...
 
@RoryAlsop - Cutting it kinda close, eh? Well, you seem like the type who lives on the wild side ;-)
I'd just be nervous about going to China.
 
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Well, as I grew up in very isolated areas, with hills, mountains, moorland, and very few humans, going to a city of 12 million people unnerves me slightly!
That's way more people than in my entire country
 
@RoryAlsop - Yah, not sure I'd be comfortable going to a city that big either.
Talk about stacked to the rafters
