Yeah, sorry if anyone is trying to get in touch with me, my phone died yesterday, been off the radar.

Had a squeeky screetchy grindy noisy front right corner, we suspected wheel bearing, but after jacking it up, found the inner CV was loose as a goose and had a bunch of play... Went to Repco and slapped in a new half shaft, and guess what... didn't fix it. It did quiet it down a heck of a lot, and the hub nut was not that tight at all, so I'm guessing the new torque on the new hud nut has taken up a bit of the wheel bearing play that developed...

But, ideally I'd like to get the wheel bearing replaced before departing south again, so does anyone have a front right steering knuckle/hub kicking around? I'll pay pick-a-part/strong prices

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.

<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!

Well that explains why you didn't reply to my text.
Gave Shale a text so hope to see you guys before you vanish into the southern land mass again. I'm back to work on Tuesday (holidays never fucking last!) Hopefully will have my wheels again soon too...
