Good thinking.

I did the fix on mine with the washers leaving lots of clearance to the engine cover but worth a check in case.

Re: A45 service intervals

I do have a service plan to cover 3 years at a service per year. Best option considering the cost of some of the services. I can then ensure its all serviced and taken care off as per the book 😊
