Post by David M » 05 Jan 2018 13:39

Tony Barone's 4.8 has overheated about 30 km outside Beaufort West.

Anyone know of someone who we could get to assist?

Car is still running, but in limp mode.
He is on his way into BWest.
So if anyone knows someone that can in assist in BWest specifically, that would be ideal.

Alex ek kan dalk as volg help:
Onderdele optel en bring vanaf Pta waar ek is of optel langs pad of hom insleep. Sal dalk net n kar sleepwa moet kry maar daai issue is sekonder. Inkort ek is afgetree en dus nie tydgebonde.

Weet julle wat die oorverhitting veroorsaak? Se maar as daar iets anders is wat ek mee kan help.
