Also worth noting that some nuts have a nylock plastic insert to prevent them working lose (so don't need Loctite). And many nuts and bolts shouldn't have Loctite added.

Europe. We're not out till we're out. Until then we're still in. Mind you out is looking a lot like in but with less benefits!!!

Penultimate update:

Got the call yesterday the van is fixed

We had hoped it would be ready for half term, last week, to go away but the garage decided to send the head away to be reconditioned. The reasoning went completely over my head.

The cost........ 2046 which includes an MOT and replacement of the towbar electric cable the French recovery company split dragging the van onto their truck.

Unfortunately due to work i cant pick it up for two weeks but I will post a homecoming pic shortly.

Next job write to the dealer who fitted the cam belt and serviced the van to see if they offer me anything against my outlay.

My sincere thanks to all of you for your help and advice.

I'm just looking back to possible prices quoted earlier swanny - that looks to be a bit of a relief, I'd say!

Good luck with getting something positive from the dealer.

Yes, happy as you can be with a two grand bill.....

The fact I still have MH with with a 15000 mile engine in it and not a 80000+ mile engine will probably be worth a few quid when we come to trade in for our retirement MH.
