And on it drags. The workshop tech is making enquiries. I have asked them to ascertain if it is possible to just remove the whole assembly and drive the car safely without it. This seems to be taking some time. I'm thinking not, but it's an unclutched straw. I am busy this week. Towards the back end of the week, when I get the chance to sit down and tick some boxes, I will ring the number Ed gave me. Thanks Ed. When it briefly came home for what turned out to be a weekend prison release, I had a pair of those rather flash LED puddle light projectors ready to go in the bottom of the doors. The car wasn't here long enough for me to get to it. So I banged them into the F31 instead. They look fantastic. I'll get some for the X6 when it gets home.
