Re: what do you say to your garagiste when you want to tell him.......

I don't think many on here actually read the posts.

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

H. L. Mencken 1880 - 1956

Some may not like his views, but what a prediction!

Joint de couvre coulasse?


Indeed, he might have said that, Chancer but I think that possibly he shortened it to joint for pity of my incomprehension.

Anyway, the other car also seems to be suffering from joint problems (sign of age as in humans) so when I go to collect the car, I will tell him that this other bagnole also has a problem with its joint de couvre coulasse and, if he understands, I will know which phrase to use next timeSmile [:)]
