    Tuesday: I've been away for two weeks and drove it home the 180kms from Perth Airport.

    Wednesday:I washed it as it was filthy from being out in the elements. Spring has been wet, windy and muddy here so it was well in need of a good clean. Then I went and picked up my boat from the signwriters shop. The boat got new decals to colour match the car. I'll post some pics when I get a chance. Well that's two days of this week.

    Regards,

    Replaced the Windscreen/Headlight washer pump. What an easy job that is . I think this part of the car was designed by an engineer that did not think about pump failure. I noted that in the Workshop manual it says to remove the front bumper, in hind sight this may have been an easier option, as trying to put the hoses back on the new pump was extreemly frustrating. I ended up making extensions for the hoses.
    I also had trouble getting a pump, rang the local Volvo dealer to be told they were $185 AUS but there weren't any in stock. So down to the Ford dealer (the Australian 04 cars have a single twin outlet ford pump) the part was listed but not imported into Australia. Back on the net to Ford Europe found out that Ford Mondeo Mk3 uses the same pump, got one delivered to in a week from a parts retailer in the UK (ebay) for $30 Aus.
    The joys of owning European Cars in Country Australia.

    Treated all seats to a cleaning and conditioning with CRC leather treatment. Nice stuff in an aerosol can that can be sprayed on and then rubbed or brushed like a cream. It also leaves the interior smelling like freshly tanned leather. No slipperiness at all in fact you actually stick a bit to the seats.
