    New lawnmower blade boss broken TWICE

    I do have some threaded bar so maybe that's they way forward, thanks. I have ordered a cheap tap and die set from screwfix so hopefully I can get it done, I might as well just do it on the existing broken boss.

    New lawnmower blade boss broken TWICE

    I know he mentioned it in post #15 above, I have never drilled out and tapped a hole ready for a bolt so was just asking how to do it, drilling part I guess is straight forward but what do I need to tap it?

    New lawnmower blade boss broken TWICE

    Hello again, So I decided to just get them to send out another blade boss as I can't be bothered with the hassle of draining the mower of oil and petrol and returning it just for them to send it back with a new boss fitted, it's due to be delivered either tomorrow or Monday. Is it easy to fit...

    New lawnmower blade boss broken TWICE

    The seller wants to collect it for inspection and possible repair, which is fine apart from the fact that I know it's going to keep happening and they won't continuously do that will they, I said that I would like a refund as I'll need to look for a different mower but they said I would probably...

    New lawnmower blade boss broken TWICE

    I'd have thought if the central bolt wasn't tightened enough then the issue would have happened pretty much straight away but I nearly finished cutting my whole lawn so was using it it for about an hour before it happened. I definitely did not hit anything, the area I was cutting is completely...

    New lawnmower blade boss broken TWICE

    The only thing I had to do was connect the handle, the grass wasn't long and I didn't choose a low setting either so was only trimming the lawn. The blade is spotless not a mark on it, I even took pics of the blade and emailed them to the seller.

    New lawnmower blade boss broken TWICE

    Hello. I bought a new lawnmower and on the first cut the blade boss broke, the two little lugs that go through two holes in the blade literally sheared off, I only used it for about 2 minutes before I heard a dodgy rattling noise and then it got louder and went berserk so I stopped the engine...

    Electronic parking brake failure

    Got my old battery back now, just waiting for a charger to be delivered so I can charge it, I noticed it has a date on it of November 2017 so I guess it's not really too old. Will the car realise I have fitted the old battery in and therefore not show the new error messages?

    Electronic parking brake failure

    So do you think I should buy a charger and try charging it first before buying a new battery? Or just buy a new battery?

    Electronic parking brake failure

    There is a section in the handbook on releasing the handbrake, It says to use a screwdriver to pull up on the steel wire loop in the boot, I tried it but nothing happened.

    Electronic parking brake failure

    The engine does actually start so do you think I should leave it running for a while to see if it recharges the battery a bit?

    Electronic parking brake failure

    Hello, Just wondering if anyone can offer some advice please? My wife went to start the car this morning and there was a loud screeching noise, then a yellow symbol lit up with a message saying parking brake failure, the car won't drive and feels as if it's stuck in parking brake mode.
