My new toy – Saab again :)

Last night (Monday) I bought a new car. It could be nothing to brag about but… it is a lovely Saab just for 拢620. This is I think only one advantage of the recession – cheap cars.

My Renault Laguna (God, never, ever French car any more!!!) died last Saturday. Clutch and gearbox just exploded 馃檪 A year ago I had to change an engine…

I just hate this car. Tonight it will be taken to the scrapyard.

Anyway, my 12 year old Saab runs 5x better than 6 year old Renault. The quality of Saab is amazing 馃檪

“Rappel” on speed limit signs in France

During my trip by car to Poland, when I was in France, under speed limit signs I noticed a lot of small plates with text: Rappel. Because I don’t know French language at all, I had no idea what it meant. I thought that maybe it was a special speed limit for lorries?

No!

Rappel means reminder.

It means that you have formerly already been imposed this speed limit on the road you follow, that you’ve already had to respect it.

Rappel pod znakami limitu pr臋dko艣ci we Francji

Samochodem z UK do Polski jecha艂em kilka razy. Dopiero ostatnio, wstyd si臋 przyzna膰, sprawdzi艂em w sieci, co oznacza (bardzo cz臋sto umieszczana pod znakami ograniczenia pr臋dko艣ci) ma艂a tabliczka z napisem RAPPEL. Poniewa偶 przez Francj臋 w kierunku Polski jedzie si臋 bardzo kr贸tko i w zasadzie tylko autostradami, pomy艣la艂em, 偶e te ograniczenia pr臋dko艣ci z podpisem “rappel” dotycz膮 jedynie ci臋偶ar贸wek, zw艂aszcza, 偶e i tak wszyscy jechali co najmniej o te 10 czy 20 km/h szybciej.

Prawda jest – jak zwykle – ca艂kowicie inna 馃檪 Mianowicie znak RAPPEL oznacza nic innego, jak “przypomnienie”. Widz膮c znak 90+RAPPEL oznacza, 偶e ograniczenie pr臋dko艣ci do 90km/h na tej drodze zosta艂o ustanowione ju偶 wcze艣niej, a znak w chwili obecnej nam o tym przypomina. Jest tak偶e informacj膮 dla os贸b w艂膮czaj膮cych si臋 do ruchu do danej drogi.

Wot, i ca艂a tajemnica.

Some time ago I saw at Colman Road in Norwich a quite old & lovely car for sale: Triumph TR7 only for 拢775. I think it was something wrong with it because the car stayed on the grass for at least few weeks.

Anyway, the car looked very nice like for me:

Kilka dni temu przypadkowo natkn膮艂em si臋 na samoch贸d z zabawn膮 tablic膮 rejestracyjn膮:

S666AEF. Podejrzewam, 偶e tablic z trzema sz贸stkami jest na 艣wiecie sporo. Jednak, ta tablica okaza艂a si臋 naprawd臋 diabelsk膮, poniewa偶 (zawsze) diabe艂 tkwi w szczeg贸艂ach 馃檪

Replacing headlight bulb in Renault Laguna II

How to replace headlight bulb in Renault Laguna II – this is the answer 馃檪

A few days ago I had to change a bulb in headlight in my car – Renault Laguna II (2005, 1.9dTi, right hand steering wheel). The exchange has been done on the driver’s side – means on right side of the car (right hand steering wheel).

Contrary to appearances, this was not a simple operation, and even if someone has already done it once – I do not recommend the exchange of the night.

To replace the bulb in the lamp and save time follow steps below:

renault-laguna-diagramNIKON COOLPIX L4 (6.3mm, f/2.8, 1/162 sec, ISO50)

1) remove the plastic clip (I do not know how it can be removed without breaking, but even then you can reuse it). It is simply to undermine the strength of a flat screwdriver;

2) Unscrew the power steering oil filler cap (it keeps the cover); Continue reading Replacing headlight bulb in Renault Laguna II
