I’m pretty sure there shouldn’t be a puddle there :shock:

That's what all transit owners say :lol: bloody denial!
I find that as soon as you accept it then you can embrace the prospect of weather proofing :-)

That screw tells me that it was owned by a careless trampy builder type before you? :P

If you remove the back light lend and look down you'll see fresh air and mud which is where splashes and stuff get up there, not sure if it can work it's way over to the front of the arch and cause the puddle but it clearly isn't draining out so it might be worth checking the drain holes etc and if not then maybe make 1 but use something to seal it.

:-)

That puddle is between the arch and rear light, didn’t have time to take a look this afternoon to see if there’s anywhere obvious that it’s coming from


Can’t afford a custom :(

Seized handbrake lever on the rear caliper.

Pulled the caliper off, while working the lever the spring came off. That’s a c*** to get back on
Then the f*** piston came out,

Then it started raining.
Then the bleed nipple was choked up, took it out, cleaned it up, bled the brakes.

Went to top up the fluid and snapped the b*stard key in the bonnet lock!



Bit of shit night really, but all sorted now :D
