I guess you mean the heater fan keeps going off and on, the fault is the blower motor resistor pack or its connector. If its the connector you will probably need an auto electrician to replace the connector, if its the only resistor pack you might be able to replace it yourself or get an amateur to do it.

Being intermittent my bet is on the connector but you might need to replace both depending on how much heat damage there is (it melts).

Please don't go to a main dealer for a price, its dangerous.

I think the Wirral Globe needs to do a report on the “work force” actually completing some of these projects - screaming and shouting until 1am - just giving them licence to think they run the area whilst the actual hard workers need to stay awake hoping to get a rest after work. Was good at first but I’ve lost all respect for it now.

my vote is in protest at the childish antics of the Tories, Labour, Libtards and SNP over the past 3 years. Houses of Kindergarten would be more appropriate. and I would never vote labour, commies in all but name. And the fraud going on - well, thats another thread.

I have Virgin Media Router 3; very powerful. But the pc is a lot faster when plugged in with an RJ45 cable from router to pc. I also have a tablet and laptop which use wireless and are also quite fast. My mobile, when at home has zero delay. I appreciate this is an ancient thread, but thought about an update as todays VM routers knock the opposition into touch. I am on 400MBps and over. #Dont believe the opposition, the Govt ruled that any claims to beat VM are lies and companies are not allowed to 'brag' .

It is highly unlikely such a tunnel exists, the church was built around 1900 so any tunnel would not have been built earlier than this, there was also considerable difficulty in raising funds to build the church.

As it would be substantially under roads the council would have needed to approve such a structure in that era, additionally it would be going underneath a number of other buildings unless it veered considerably from its near 100m direct line.

I can't immediately see any records of quarrying in that area so the sandstone is probably not of good enough quality for tunnelling safely. A quarry that close to the docks/river would be quite desirable. Nor are there any records of landfill usage which could be taken as an indication of quarrying.

It sounds typical of one of the myths generated by one of the local ghost creating historians.

Very interesting article from the New York Times on how Birkenhead Park influenced Frederick Law Olmsted, the creator of Central Park. I think the basic story is well known (at least here in Wirral), but this puts it in much more perspective. Worth a read ...

It is only a single lane flyover from A41 to Borough Road I can't see any difference in capacity apart from the height restriction of 12'9" under the Waterloo Place bridge.

Hi Joe, sorry to hear about your father.

I noticed today, Tuesday, two men with a ladder working on the roof of the low extension at the Mill Lane and Limekiln Lane corner.
I hope it was only for good and nothing getting stripped off.
