Well it turns out I have a leaking rear Shock but as these are second hand there is no warranty....... :(

Luckily GAZ offer a repair service for £25 which includes, new rod, seals and oil so after Trax the car will be coming off the road to get this sent off to be repaired :thumbsup:

The car is now back on the road :D

Got the shock back from Gaz today all fully rebuilt and serviced, popped up to the garage and fitted it along with my new horn and 10" steering wheel.....

Took it for a little blast and came back with a massive smile, sad isn't it :lolz:
