Earlier today a neglected Range Rover left my place for somewhere better

And now I think it cursed me upon its departure.

Whilst in town doing chores the lad says “your car is leaking water”. Yeah mate that’s just the aircon drain. No it’s leaking in the cab. And points to my pedal box...

If only it was water.

Volkswagen created a woeful piece of engineering for the clutch master cylinder mount. It’s an unsupported metal bracket that flexes over time and pedal pressure. After 16 years...the flange fitting on the line into the back of the master cylinder has cracked. I’ve got three days to get it sorted before a 2000 km round trip starting mid next week.
