|Lambda (oxygen) sensor on a car|
at 16:23 11 Oct 2019
Anyone mechanically minded ever changed one of these?
The engine management light on the dash came on the other week, I was booked in for an MOT anyway, they told me it was this sensor, but had taken it out and put it back, and the light had gone out, but if it came back on again the sensor would need replacing, £130.
Seems a bit steep, I've searched for the part, looks like you need a special socket tool to remove it too, but £40-£50 would probably cover it, and there's a youtube video showing how easy it is to do.
I hate getting ripped off by garages for simple jobs I could probably do myself, but I suppose there's always the chance I could mess up and then have to pay them to fix it!
Anyone done one of these themselves?

Villa fans chanting, "Are you Ipswich in disguise?" at 0-4.
Gone right off them now.

Just seen the Wolves v Chelsea highlights, have to admit Frank seems to be learning very quickly, impressive result.
Would never have had Abraham down as a main striker, but he's doing alright.

My son's passport expires in mid-October, it's a child's 5-year passport and he's just turned 16.
I'm looking to book a foreign holiday for about 3 weeks time, daft question, but will he be OK using the passport, I mean the expiry dates, the expiry date, right? It's just that some countries insist on you having at least 6-months left on your passport when you travel.
Any advice from the TWTD knowledgebase would be greatly appreciated!

there's nothing like leaving a game 2 minutes before the end, walking down Portman Road, hearing the crowd go silent, then the roar of relief as a goal is scored. And I missed it, any good, was it???

Did Anfield yesterday, a very impressive beast of a stadium, absolutely dwarfing Goodison Park in the distance (or was it just far away??)
Anyone else done any good ones, apart from PR of course?

Well that was a pretty good half of footy, unspoilt by VAR.

Assuming we are stuck with VAR, what do we think will come next to 'improve' football to make sure it is 99.99999% accurate, as opposed to just 99.9999%?
I'll go for a full body suit with headgear, that contains thousands of pressure sensors able to measure the force of contact between players, perhaps similar to the 'snickometer' in cricket, so when there is a contentious foul, video can be matched with audio/pressure readings to see how firm/light the contact was.
Or mind-reading - a player will know if they've committed a foul and will be thinking along the lines of 'Oh sh!t, thats a pen', so once the technology is available to read the players thoughts, it could be used to help the ref/VAR people make their decision.
There you go UEFA/FIFA, you can have those for free. Well, actually I'd like a few million for coming up with the ideas please.

Penalty to France (it wasn't)
France miss penalty.
Give France a second chance as keeper moved .000001 second before ball was kicked.
|Got to love VAR!!!|

Aussies just been awarded a goal after ref checked VAR - Aussie player was offside when a cross went in, but it was a header from a Brazil defender for the goal.

Anyone watching this on BBC4?
Bit late now, but worth watching on the iplayer if you get a chance, really interesting.

Got to want them to win - Matt Holland is their cox!

Haven't seen a thread on this drama yet, standards are slipping. Must be all the football stuff getting in the way...
Anyway, another superb BBC drama, catch up on the iplayer if you haven't seen it yet. Great storyline and superb acting.

Sorry, boring thread, and please feel free to tell me to p1ss-off to mumsnet, but how have I got to my stage in life and never used degreaser in a kitchen before?
The stuff is amazing, it er, totally gets rid of grease with minimal effort. I've always struggled with basic cleaning products, cloths, sponges, scourers until now.
Nasty stuff though, wear a mask, or ventilate the area, and wear rubber gloves when using it, that's for sure.
That's all, just thought I'd share.

Interesting program just starting on BBC2, looking back at the last decade.
