    Are you going to put him out of his misery Olley? Or are you going to direct him here? :Laughing:

    :wub: Having posted the above? I MUST admit. When we broke down in Millau with our 454 Chevy Coachmen for 3 1/2 weeks? I had the parts I required shipped over from the UK. :Wink:





    :Frown: Didn't have the knowledge and contacts then. :Laughing::Laughing::Laughing:

    I know what you mean Linda,:Laughing::Laughing: but.. For the guy in trouble it was a tenner well spent:Laughing:, because Olley is a member, sorry subscriber:BigGrin: on the other site and.... he knew where to ask.... (here or fulltiming):BigGrin: Either way the guy in trouble got a lot of bang for his buck:BigGrin:

    Hope he gets sorted out soon, nothing worse that being broken down a long way from home.

    :Eek!: You know I can't for the life of me understand one thing? WHY when I break down, does it take 3 1/2 weeks. EVERY time. No kidding. It's happened 3 times now. :Eek!:

    :Cool: But luckily not for over 3 years now. :Laughing::Laughing::Laughing:

    Hi billym also gave him some good info on a garage near player de torres, but so far he hasn't replied. So whether he's getting sorted or sitting by the roadside waiting for john to pass by I don't know. :rofl:

    :Eek!: What exactly is his problem olley? There is a garage on the way up to La Nucia run by a brilliant British guy who did some work on our Camper and Coachmen before we started doing our own work. If it is parts he needs? Then he could have them shipped over (like I did in Millau) and then get a garage to fit them if he cannot do it himself. :Wink:





    :Cool: I will be going over there in the middle of September. :Laughing::Laughing:

    :Cool: In that case? What is his chassis? Year? Ford or Chevy? Could send some diagrams and perhaps where to get parts from? :Wink:

    Hi john its not a major problem, he says he's lost all of his steering fluid, caused by a broken pipe, so he's still got brakes and steering, just no power assisst. Need arm and leg muscles like garth. :BigGrin:

    I would have thought any lorry garage could sort him out. Don't know where he was posting from, cafe maybe? maybe he doesn't have an internet connection via his lappy?

    :Cool: A bit of Gaffa Tape, some string a Hammer and a pair of pliers should get him on the road again then. :Laughing::Laughing:


    BTW. When our old Coachmen kept cutting out, it was a little difficult steering and braking at the same time on a tight bend around the mountains. :Eek!:
