Help Needed Haverfordwest

Hi, have broken down in Haverfordwest - R33 - looks like turbo water feed at the back of the block. Do any of you from south or west Wales know somewhere that could replace the hose if needed? Thanks in advance

To update: was a short length of hose just above the starter motor - an absolute bit*h to get at but Haverfordwest Auto Centre saved the day. They had the car up on a ramp 30 mins after I was taken there by the breakdown patrol and the starter motor was off, hose replaced and starter back in not much more than an hour. They are real enthusiasts - into motorsport in a big way and totally unfazed by the Skyline. If any of you need help with the car and are local/passing through I can 100% recommend them.

Cheers, Dave

I see from your pictures that it was you and your Skyline that my Misses spotted on the M4 near Newport!

Sorry Huw, not us! Thankfully we avoided the misery of a recovery due to the fab AA patrol guy and the local garage.

Ah, that is us.. Sorry, I was thinking that you meant that Mrs Huw had seen us the day of the breakdown.. My mistake!

Yes, that was us on our way to Pembrokeshire. Sadly tomorrow's our last day but (apart from the breakdown) we've had a great week.

Cheers, Dave

Glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves Dave! West Wales has some great driving roads and I especially like going on the coastal one from Tresaith to Aberystwyth because its a fast twisty one with awesome elevations in places and has some excellent views out to Sea as you pass on through. Also, Some of the smaller coastal Towns are like stepping back in time as they haven't changed that much in over two hundred years!

Anyways, Have a safe trip Home. All the best Sean!
