    The little plastic tabs that link the door lock mechanism to the lock.

    This just broke on the missus' MK2 so now the central locking isn't working. I replaced the plastic tab with a new part last time but obviously it's not work, so I'm just going to glue it now and have done with it

    disaster

    Drove my car to work and while opening work's gates I've noticed I'm leaking oil. Not just drops, I was leaving streaks of oil! I could have killed the engine if my work was more far away from my home. Hopefully it was just 2-3 miles.
    Now then I have located the leak to be coming from that top part of the "oil-filter section" (forgive me I am not very mechanical). Car is now at the garage, mechanic told me I had almost no oil left in engine and that I was very lucky. Now waiting for it to be repaired... it's always Monday isn't?!
    Still I am unsure if located leak correctly and if it's something that can be easily fixed. But keeping my fingers crossed (from what I researched, hopefully it will be just that rubber o-ring, but knowing my luck... ehh better not think).

    What I don't fully understand is, if I was almost out of oil there should be an engine/oil light showing up on my dashboard to inform me about it, right?

    guess the oil pressure sensor is also busted!
