Picked up some firewood for next winter from a friend who's logging nearby.
The trailer looks rear-heavy but it isn't, the hitch sits a bit too high on the Skoda for that old trailer. It doesn't help that the trailer tires are one size smaller than they should be...I think there's about 400kg worth of wood on it.

Decided to wash the car, spring cleaning
We had a mild winter, I wonder if that has something to do with the amount of buildup I had on it. Maybe they used more salt on the roads when the temps often were just a few degrees below or over freezing. I think I need stronger chemicals or a large chunk of clay to get the body clean. The engine cleaned nicely though!

I have had some problems with the outside temp circuit, it would start to drop and show -34C even when the ambient temperature was 20C. Didn't think of it as anything else than an annoyance but now that we got our first "hot" day (after a long winter 20C is really hot!) it became more than that, when the indicated temp is below freezing the aircon doesn't work!
There were 2 identical temp sensors on my car, one where it should be, beside the fog light, and another in the centre of the grille. After a lot of testing and stripping of the tape on the main harness I found out that one of the sensors had it's wires cut and left in the harness. The other sensor was a repair.
Had to undo all of the tape until I found the spot where someone had done the repair. It was really close to the firewall and done with crimp connectors and since I couldn't get to them for a good test for continuity I cut the wires
Soldered the wires from the other sensor to the stubs and taped the harness, hoping that there was a bad connection in the crimp connectors.
Mounted the sensor in the lower grille beside the fog light and replaced the air filter, mounted the battery and went for a test drive. Success!
Ambient temp showed actual temp and the A/C kicked in, it only managed to cool the air down to 12C but knowing the condition of my condenser it was OK, 12 is cooler than 20.



I had another fault too recently, I got a fault code for charge pressure too low and it turned out to be a lazy N75 valve. Easy fix once I googled it
