Sorry I don't actually have a digi camera handy.

It's not in our NL Fairlane, so we're both just a tad confused.

If it's near the radiator overflow tank and it has 3 or 4 small diameter metal pipes going into it, it's definitely the ABS.

Whatever it is though - do not remove it! It's probably an important part required to make the car function properly.

Yeah it seems to be the ABS thingy, I think I've found it in the Fairlane too.

Thanks guys.

Oh and I"m not going to touch a thing in either car, dad wont let me lol. Just having a peak around getting used to everything for when I get mine. Then I can toy with anything without parents getting tight!

Haha - yep, it's best to leave the oldies' cars well alone! - Years ago when I was just out of school I went to the trouble of working out how the emissions gear on my Dad's XF worked - then I disconnected/blocked all of it that could be and tuned the engine up generally (using Gregory's manual). The car went great and returned improved fuel economy + less power loss in hot weather.

My folks were really pleased until a few weeks later when some relay or fusible link failed (near the battery - opposite side of the engine bay from where I'd worked on it) - Dad had to get RACQ to fix it at his work. So of course even tho it was NOTHING to do with anything I worked on it was my fault for fooling with the car!! I kid you not - they were really cranky at me for ages!!

IT'LL GO OR IT'LL BLOW!!!
