Was it not your fault for having window openIve been in a cab wen a window broke
Like a cannon firing
I may have a little bit
Loader bucket tried to lift the tractor by the open rear window .
Luckily as the one sat in tractor not my fault, it was the owner that blow the window.
They wont fall off as there is a rounded lock on area at the back which is clamped around the rod, not flat like on the front of the jaws.And when the vise grips fall off , and then window slams shut ,
You will have a million pieces of glass everywhere .
Buy a pair of struts , fraction of the cost of rear window .
Been there , got the t-shirt.
When you eventually get a new exhaust fitted, don't forget to ask for your jubilee clip and gripple back.the trusty old punto exhaust has blown a hole and was sounding rather like a race car. Luckily we had beans for dinner, found a jubilee clip and a bit of old wire and a new gripple and she’s back on the road

We often used to leave the bean tin patches on until the car went for scrap. I recall one Cortina lasted 4-5 years with at least three patches - I think that the exhaust ended stronger than the rest of the bodywork!I’m afraid she may be scrapped when the mot runs out!
Rear mount broke off on my car few years ago now, offcut of fencing wiremto hold it and carry on. Evening before Mot had a look underneath to check car over, remembered about the wire!! Had to blob a few blobs of mignon the mounting bracket!!!I’m afraid she may be scrapped when the mot runs out!
Probably only 30 quid for a new oneApparently this may have something to do with why quad tire was always flat....rusted out rim about half way around........View attachment 959238found a nice long offcut of reo mesh and bent it around and trying to fill in the blanks nowView attachment 959239View attachment 959240
In ye olde days there was no back window (or cab) to get mucky so you had to work out the wind direction pretty quickly.
Dunno? It's a 97 model . Newer rims probably wont suit. Anyway, it was the challenge of it....tire shop owner watched in amazement when the lad put it in the water tank and there was no bubbles..... I said to him feck I'm good He said yeah I saw what you had to work with !Probably only 30 quid for a new one
