Before I start I will say I know very little about cars so bear that in mind when I try to describe my issue.

My exhaust has fell off. So there's the bit of exhaust that protrudes the back bumper which is attached to a cylindrical box, that box has become unattached to the rest of the exhaust and it is now swinging about being held onto the the bottom of the car by a bolt.

It's going into the garage on Wednesday. Is it going to cost me a fortune? I can't seem to get a straight answer when Googling because I use phrases like "attached to cylindrical box".

Thatís the back box. Itís possible itís just come unattached from the chassis and thatís a quick easy fix. Otherwise it could be the bracket has broken off, which against isnít a hard fix but a bit more involved.

Cheers. I had a look under the car and the exhaust itself doesn't look too bad, not rusty or anything. I don't know if meant a complete change of exhaust or just a section of it, or like you say, it's come unattached.

If it's just dangling down and not obviously rusty I'd guess it's just a bracket and you don't need a new back box. They normally have either a bracket which goes around the whole backbox or a couple of brackets which stick up from the top/sides of backbox and attach to rubber brackets on the chassis.

Unless it is a complete all in one system, the main section of pipe from the engine joins the back box about 8 inches forwards of the box itself (ie towards the front of the car), the pipe from the backbox is flared to allow the pipes to join, the bit with the two slots in the top of the pic below. From your description, it sounds like the pipes have been seperated at this join, have you or anyone else hit a speed bump quite hard, or the edge of a kerb driving up/off?



Crawl under the car and see if the pipes have come apart, or if the pipe has snapped. If they have come apart, you should be able to push them back together. The pipes are held together with one of these, its an exhaust clamp, if that is missing, you'll need to get one from Halfords or a motor factors

This is a great help, cheers. Like you suggest, the pipe entering the back box has come away from the box itself. I had a look at it doesn't seem like it's snapped - no rust, seems quiet a clean and uniform separation. I can't say I have hit any speed bump or anything but it happened after driving on the motorway.

That's good. It could be that whoever fitted the exhaust either didn't put a clamp on or chose not to and its worked loose over time. If you can manage to get the pipe into the backbox and get it clamped, you shouldn't need to go to the garage Wednesday.

Anyone know much about door handles?

The little screws in the bottom of them keep falling out of all of mine (its a new build house). I read somewhere that it means the spindle(?) thing inside is upside down as they should slot into a groove, but then someone has also said just tighten them all with an allen key.

We already have shit in the country, and the game of Liverpool fills life with joy. Thanks

Not a lot, but a light coating of a thread lock compound before tightening the screw will stop them falling out.

You could try the spindle thing - take both door handles off, usually the spindle would be attached to one of them. Look for a groove. When putting them back, put them the other way round (ie the 'inside' one to the 'outside'). That should also put them upside down.

I suspect the screw needs tightening with an alan key, I sell ironmongery amongst other stuff.

Also on a different note, looking to sell my car but the engine looks a bit grotty, theres like sand in it and stuff so I got a engine valet quote but £135 is a bit steep. So i was thinking, if I adequately covered the battery could I myself not just give it a quick jetwash? or is this a ridiculous idea?

I personally wouldn't be doing that. The valet should be using a steam cleaner. Its not just the battery, its all the other electronics in there such as the ECU is under the bonnet on a lot of cars, the main fuse box is usually under the bonnet, you've all the plugs for the injectors, alternator etc etc. While these will occasionally get wet, they are not subjected to the high pressure that a washer generates.

Does any one know how to remove them?  Is there a way?

Is there a special tool, or technique for getting them out?  Short of drilling them out?

You could weld a bolt to them and unscrew the bolt rather akin to when people lose their alloy wheel locking bolt.

You can make a cut across the screw head and then just unscrew it out.

There are specialist tools to unscrew one way screw heads like that but cutting it will be easier if you don't have one.

Hammer and chisel the heads off and then a pair of pliers to wind them out.
Or, after the hammer and chisel, try putting the protruding screw in the jaws of your drill and reverse them out.

Its just a normal screwdriver, if you look at the pic, you can see where a flat bladed screwdriver will grip on tightening. The idea behind them is you use them for things like shed doors, eg the locks, so that once tightened up, they cannot be removed. With normal screws, you can just remove the bolt with a screwdriver and open the shed door. The one in Richies pic looks to be on a hinge on a gate or shed door

Yeah they are one way. So you can tighten them with a normal screwdriver but there is no grip to undo.

A quick pass with a Drexel or similar will put another groove in to use a normal screwdriver though.

I moved into a new flat about two weeks ago and there's a smoke detector on the ceiling adjacent to the bathroom.

For some reason in the last day or so, whenever I open or close the bathroom door, the detector lets off a beep or two a few seconds after the door opening/closing motion is complete. It didn't do this when we first moved in, and doesn't beep at any other time except when there's lots of steam coming out of the open bathroom door after a hot shower/bath.

Does anyone have a theory as to why the smoke detector would be doing this?

Was the word Ďconglomerateí widely used before Succession came out?

I just finished watching Succession about 3 weeks ago and I am sure it was either the first time I heard the word or first time I had heard it in years, but now I hear it everywhere. It was used on TAW recently, I recall.
This sounds like a good example of the Baader  Meinhof phenomenon.
