En Route but…


Geen lost her electric fan so overheated in traffic barely two miles from home. Once cooler and sorted I had a mad charge to make the train on time at Eurotunnel.  Landed in France and was barely underway before the engine cut.  Wouldn’t run at the roadside so a dramatic four further stops on the hard shoulder before I could get off the autoroute.

With terrific back up from Robbie and Howard over the phone tried all sorts of fixes and I had to use all my famous level 2 mechanical skills.  It also meant knowing where all the tools and parts were in the car.  Got there in the end once I tried the original AMX condenser.
From first brake down to getting back under way was five hours of stress and some danger in the wind and rain on a dark hard shoulder with the hazards not working.
Hoping to watch the sun come up in about four hours time…
