Re: How do you secure your car for holidays?
All that has already been said above, But i'd also jack the car up with the trolly jack, and move the car o a diagonal angle in the garage, so that it has to be jacked up and moved in order to get the car out again. (and hide the jack of course!!!)
Disconnect the battery anyway- its bound to go flat anyway! And don't leave the handbrake on- I drove the XT recently after it had been sitting for 6 weeks and the rear beakes had temporarily seized on.
For storage of a couple of months or more, i'd pour some motor oil down the carby with the engine running until a little smoke comes out the exhaust (to put oil on the bores to stop corrosion). Id also leave all doors/ boot etc on first catch, not fully closed, so as to not squash the rubbers. Tape up exhaust tips and carby barrel to stop moisture getting into the motor.
