    Central locking leak

    What's the best way to find a air leak in my central locking system? and where is it most likely to be?

    I was thinking to using my missus vape.

    Is it an old system with a compressor that pumps air for the central locking? Use a spray bottle with soapy water in and spray all pipes and connections. Operate the central locking and see was bubbles.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    That's because this forum uses Google adds which hyperlinks text just ignore them.
