    Argh....

    Been up to local carnival all day on and off with the kids, my wife decided to do the car boot - getting rid of various prams, small bikes etc - most has gone..........yes.....I get some space back in the garage :smile:, but a bed rail fell over and smashed my rear lamp on the car.....:biggrin:

    Cheapest quote so far (on-line scrap yards) is £85 :smile: - (don't want to phone the stealership) Don't think my wife took that in takings...... ah well......that's life......... :biggrin:

    Oh, it get's worse...... car will now not start ! I'm at home, wife stuck in a field......

    Given the electronics in the car (it's 6 years old but the latest shape Nissan Primera) I know that a blown bulb in the rear clusters can shut the car down - so with the tail lamp being damaged, I bet the computer has shut it off...

    I've called the AA for her - will have to see how long it takes to get her going.

    No doubt it will be all my fault ! ;)

    Online scrappie? Sounds expensive! Just motor down to your nearest scrapyard and get one for a few bob.

    Thing is, there aren't many Primera Saloons...... nothing on the bay - so will see what quotes come in on Monday... might just keep an eye out for a week or two - it's missing a 3x2cm area of glass - got tape to waterproof it though !

    Battery flat was the non-starter.....
