I got sick to my stomach and extremely frustrated. The second time around went way better and now the car runs great and no leaks, took awhile to burn all that oil off though!
I have to say this was a nightmare of a DYI, maybe I'm just a dummy.
Thanks again for your help, feels great to have the car working again.
Glad you got it figured out.
The first time doing it, it can be a pain in the ass. There are a few tricks to making it much simpler without breaking anything. For me its easy, but I take these off 5+ times a week. Glad its all sorted out though.
