Help in Norfolk

Post by Woodie » Mon Nov 05, 2018 10:27 am

Hi folks as you may have seen i have acquired an XM 2.1 Td... Loving being in one again after all these years... I have a small problem as my disability makes it very difficult to work on vehicles myself, but i would love to bring her back to spot on driveyness... The suspension is not 100% what it should be... I would like to replace all the spheres anyone in Norfolk that could do this for me ? or give assistance maybe ? obviously i would pay... A big ask i know

Hi Woodie,
I would be happy to assist with the spheres and I am very close by in Aylsham. If you could send me a private message or email with your details I shall make further contact and hopefully we can make arrangements to meet up soon.
With regards,

It was a pleasure to assist Richard and the work all went fairly smoothly. All the spheres were basically flat with one ruptured diaphram, so the replacement was very much overdue. Both the hydrualic and gearbox oils were also black as soot! I am sure Richard would agree that suspension is now transformed, although it would appear some adjustment of the front ride height may also now be required. With regards, Matthew T.
