Banged the mpv :-(
« on: October 07, 2016, 10:25:43 pm »
Hello guys,

Sorry I've not been on for a while.  It's just that I've had a lot on my plate lately, so really stressed out.  Anyway, I've only gone and smacked the front-offside corner of the ford galaxy.  Luckily the damage was less on mine, whereas the other guy's front door went totally in.

I'm going to get mine into a garage to check out what damage, but from the looks of it, the bumper, grill & fog/spot lights and parking sensors are definately damaged.

That's crap luck hope it all gets sorted and looking all good again.


It's just a metal box though main thing is no one is hurt. (Hopefully anyway)

Thanks johnny. Fortunately no one is hurt  I just can't believe the amount of things that are going wrong.  I spent ages figuring out how to install parking sensors, replacing cam sensor, brake calipers and trying to diagnose the turbo issues and when finally the mpv is working to a decent standard, it ends up getting damaged.

Never mind...like you said it's only a metal box.  :)

Sorry to hear, at least nobody hurt.

Should you happen to need a replacement front bumper I've got one here that I need to sell, consequently I'd want very little for it. Trouble is, you're a long way from me and they're very difficult to package up in a satisfactory way to send via courier!

Changed my cam sensor last Thursday and seems to have cured my starting problems.
Clipped mirrors with a van over the weekend, broke their casing but ripped mine off and left
hanging by it wires  >:(
Stuck back on with a bonding sealant and gaffa tape for now. :P

Which side mirror was it? I've probably got bits to make up a usable drivers side mirror.

Erm... both now ::)

earlier in the year came back to my car after shopping to find driver side mirror hanging off.
both now stuck back on, they both still work on the electrics just don't fold in anymore.

car matches me perfectly now. old, banged up with bits falling off.  :D
