]The SNP like to proclaim their energy independence, and point to the jobs created and income generated for the country. In reality, these are hollow claims.

Very few permanent jobs result from wind power, and most of the money goes to rich landowners and the banks and (mostly foreign owned) who finance and operate the wind farms.[/i]
Where did the SNP come into it. Scottish Power is Spanish owned.

Scottish power has already sold off all its conventional power generation capability
They have even sold off their hydro schemes.

“Sold off” does not mean these facilities have been decommissioned. This sounds like just an accounting artifice to move these expensive facilities off Scottish Power’s balance sheet (and grab some PR headlines): the generating plants still exist and SP will buy the power from Drax when they need it. So John Ratsey’s point is still valid.
In Car Entertainment / Radio code missing

I’m trying to recover / find the code for my parents Jazz as it doesn’t appear to be on any of the documents from the dealer and luckily this is the first time they’ve disconnected the battery since they had the car back in 2010

All help is welcome

If it is the same symptom you describe, I have a similar issue. Only happens around 2,000RPM ish and only under load. In other words, sitting on the driveway and revving the engine to 2,000RPM does not cause the 'rattle'. I thought it was the heatshield but it seems fine. The car did have problem with some gravel being stuck between the shield and the pipe which caused vibration but they reckon they fixed that. However, I spoke with a Honda dealership and it seems there is also another heatshield 'over to the left'. We concluded it could be some sort of harmonic resonance. Not sure where this other heatshield is exactly but I will have a look next time it is up on a ramp.
Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: What servicing is due at 40K
« Last post by Spencer69 on Today at 02:22:15 PM »
Definitely, Peteo48. Only do between 2k & max 5k miles per year, but there are a few journeys much longer than just popping to supermarket.

Anyway, at local independent garage will do 1 full service 1 year and then interim service year after along with MOT. Know only had car now coming up 3 years but have always gone by this. Has never done the car any damage, knowingly!

Been for a test drive in an X1, wow, what a lovely car, 2 litre diesel with 8 speed auto box, blows the T-Roc and Mazda CX3 out the water, so smooth and quiet. however, for my 24 hour test drive I have to insure it first !!!!

So can someone tell me if you can replace the red rear lights with the white version... for some reason the white are much more plentiful and cheaper?

My Jazz is pearl white so I quite fancy white rear lights and need to replace driver side anyway.

Hi mate have you heard anything about the noise. My jazz is exactly the same. I thought it was pinking at first but now suspect gearbox or clutch. I know you posted awhile a go but I have just come across it. Cheers.

Those are the right ones for the later car - slightly offset. Early droplinks have the joints roughly at right angles.

I fitted a cheap Borg & Beck (same as Firstline factor parts) a while ago, seems to be holding up okay.

Sounds like for other folks changing their drop links they need to pay attention to the various configurations.

The drop link I ordered suggested it's a 2004 model onwards but Jocko has a 2006 and uses the offset variety.

This is the first time I've seen such a difference for essentially the same car, perhaps I've just been lucky in the past?
