Not much to do with the Rover really, but might amuse you............
This evening I drained best part of a couple of gallons of ATF out of the Rovers' gearbox prior to removing it.
So picture the scene. Just slid a very full washing up bowl full of ATF from under the car and left it there alongside the passenger door. It had been draining for a couple of days. I remembered I had not put the drain plug back in, so got inside to replace it (the tunnel cover is off) Replaced the plug, and on the way out lifted up a brand new clutch assembly for my Triumph, which has been in the passenger footwell.
I lifted it up on my palms, being that my hands were oily.......pressure plate on my hands, and the friction disc on top. As I went to get out, the nice new friction plate slid off......you've guessed it.......straight into the bowl of oil !
Just to round things off, the resulting splash went on my trousers, on my shoes, onto the doorcard, onto the carpet, and onto the passenger seat.
