    • Got it sussed. The subframe needs moving slightly. I have positive camber one side and negative the other. Wishbones on correctly and ball joints same as what came off.

          • So, today was meant to be a good day but it didn't quite work out to plan. S2 ownership can be very frustrating at times.
            I was booked in for four wheel alignment at a garage some 20 miles away. Recommended by a good local vw/Audi mechanic. I haven't got my wings back from paint yet so I cant get the car mot'd so borrowed a trailer from one of my neighbours. He very kindly dropped it off as he was passing my way over the weekend. Unfortunately, It wasn't a proper car trailer, but more a flat bed. He supplied two good long ramps but when I had a good look at the height of the deck and the angle I would be driving up on I realised that I would ground out and may damage the exhaust. I didn't want to chance it after all the work I have done. No problem, there is a good local trailer hire place down the road (15 miles away). Gave them a ring and all was good to go, they had a trailer for rent. Drove over and collected the Brian James 14ft jobbie, perfect I thought and I was still in good time for my 11.30 booking. Got home, reversed up to the garage, put the ramps down, got the ties ready, opened up the garage doors, jumped into the S2...……..and it wouldn't start. So, I will just pop the bonnet and have a look...……………...and the bonnet wont open
            There is plenty of petrol in it, the battery is fully charged and its turning over, just not firing.
            I haven't run the engine for some time, a couple of months at least. The only thing I have done since it was last run was to install the coil pack conversion. So, I need to have a good look tomorrow and eliminate the basics first. One thing I did notice is that there is no petrol smell from the exhaust, despite several attempts to start. I would have expected some smell.
            So, I had to cancel the booking, take the hire trailer back (they laughed when I told them my story but didn't charge me, so worth it) and take my neighbours trailer back (plus bottle). This evening I read up on how to open your bonnet when stuck and got that done by passing a long thin screwdriver above each headlamp to push the spring. Now I just need to figure out why it wont run. Yes Lyn - beer time

                Maybe fuel pump. Is it just one fuse (13) and one relay for the fuel pump?
                I don't seem to have an immobiliser.
