Sensor-Tive Type

Well, first off, a big thumbs up to Agnew’s VW commercial of Mallusk. I rung them yesterday afternoon [9th] to score a new Oil Pressure Sensor, having decided that it must be the sensor itself that was leaking, rather than the join between it and the engine block. The guy in the parts dept. took the order but said he couldn’t get the new switch for me until Tuesday [13th] which wouldn’t be much good to me as I was planning to get off on my travels today [10th]. Anyway, yer man said he’d put it through as a special order and there was a slim chance it might arrive ‘next day’. So, about noon today, I rung up on the off chance and was told that my sensor was one of very few things that had come in on their first delivery of the day.

So I went to Agnew’s and collected the sensor and fitted it. Now we’ll see whether Herman’s terminal incontinence has been cured.

Shiny new Oil Pressure Sensor, fresh from the polythene. Plus the 24mm deep socket I scored from Hellfords, to make putting the sensor in without crushing it a bit easier
