Discs and pads
Full exhaust ( including £40 for the middle section hanger )
Two new engine mountings
The auto box decided to die on the first run after fitting all the new bits , the cost of a replacement gearbox would have...
I have had a nightmare this week with my Auto box .
I was having major problems with selecting gears on the car and put it down to the badly worn engine mountings , two days ago the passenger side mounting tore away and rendered the car unmovable ( wont select gear ) .

Yesterday I managed to sell the gas guzzling van , the Micra goes in for its MOT in the morning so hopefully i will be buying less fuel than I was before .
I managed to sort out the rough running issues and the smoky exhaust so fingers...
