Giving My Car Some Attention

I’ve had this day off work, as I wanted to use some of my vacation before 2014. I don’t think it makes sense to carry more than approx two weeks of vacation to the spring, as the spring has many holidays. I had planned to spend most of the day getting insulation for my attic, but since Bauhaus’ van was unavailable, I ended up giving my car some attention instead. I could only fit three packages of insulation in my car, so I will definitely not use it to move the remaining 60 packages…

After a weekend with my workplace’s Christmas party and my mother’s 25th anniversary in the municipal day care, a day off has been nice.

I’ve changed tyres before, but I still think today was my debut as a mechanic:

  • Changed from summer to winter tyres.
  • Filled washer fluid.
  • Changed a “position light” bulb.
  • Changed the motor oil.
  • Changed the oil filter.
  • Changed the air filter.

Parts and fluids for only 555 DKK, excluding freight. I already had the tyres and the washer fluid. I borrowed a proper jack and other accessories from a co-worker. For releasing the old oil filter I used a large pipe wrench from a neighbour.

The car actually worked afterwards 🙂

I have no pictures, party because my phone ran out of juice, and partly because my hands were dirty most of the time. If you are searching for help, hints or walkthroughs, I can recommend Google and YouTube.
