Hi all. I'm a newbie here from Bedfordshire.  I've just picked up a 1 owner from new with 27000 miles on with history upto 2006 were it has been garaged for the last 13 years.. I'm hoping to get it started in the next few weeks it's in great condition inside is mint... it's an auto aswell. But breaks are seized on so trying to move it but nicely..  also could be for sale how it is if anyone is interested:-)

No drain plug, but you know... the sender always could be removed haha! Seriously don,t you'll never get it to be dry again without renewing it!

Welcome aboard mate. Send him a PM, see how he gets on. Be great to see more pics of the Estate and a clip of getting it out into the daylight and running again! :D

Aaahhhh bugger, nothing is ever simple haha.. theres not a great deal of fuel in there  when I shake the car I can still here it slush about, would I get away with a 25l can of v-power fuel to over ride the old fuel just to get it up and running.

Thank you Andy 😁..  will message him as soon as I get back from work as signal not good.. will try and get a clip of pulling it out of the garage once I've figured out how to un sieze the breaks hahaha I'm hoping just a gentle pull with the landy will sort that bit.. will give it a wash and get better pics 🙂

Landy's are a certified way to sort out brakes if you can't get access to her!

If you decide to keep her, we could see if a rescue party can be sorted if not!

If you can get into it a lump hammer on rear drums helps free them

As Andy said no drain in tank but remove the fuel line will get most of the fuel out

Careful with the tank estate tanks are specific hatch saloon won't replace it 

You can disconnect fuel line on offside chassiss tail in engine bay (rubber to plastic and put the rubber end in a petdol can as a a start point to get her running 

 

And good luck on the purchase restoration

Hi newbody thank you for the information:-) I'll be careful with the tank then. I went there today to attempt to move it the landy had no problem dragging it back but were the car is theres very little room to get it all the way out aswell as with the landy just too many cars about in the way so I'm going to book a day off work and have ago during the week, I was thinking I'll pull it out maybe enough room to jack the rear wheels off and tap them probably is there anything else I can do to try and free them as have wasted another weekend :-(. On a good note underneath is really good and clean also engine oil still on max line and turns over by hand once it runs will change all fluids, smelt the fuel in tank it still smells very normal with a nice petrol smell still, so am thinking maybe leave it in to try and get it running it still splish splashing about in tank also...

Looks very tidy. Not gone far in its life as MJ's a Bedfordshire registration.

Love the luggage area carpet. Is it carpet or some other material?

Hope  you decide to keep it as it would be good to have another estate in the area.
