Roadside Toolkit List

Discussion in 'Mech Tech' started by GingersVW, Apr 23, 2012.

  1. About a metre or wire and half a dozen scotch locks (a hand full of other connectors wouldn't go a miss either). I keep four red glow sticks and about four white ones (no worries with batteries)

    I have 2 old fashioned leather school satchels one for spares and one for tools . they fit perfect behind the passenger and driver seat. The tool bag isnt fixed so it can be taken to the job the spares one is secured and was originally a place to hide semi valuable crap.. the semi valuable crap is now the spares

    points condenser cap rotor arm, leads plugs fuel pump, cable ties, tape cable connectors block connectors, rocker cover gaskets inlet manifold gaskets, split pins, fuses, bulbs, a random selection of screws , nuts bolts and washers and a spare window winder handle .. :)

  11. The only bit you’re likely to need is a fan belt. But it seems to be missing from your very comprehensive list of tools and parts.
  12. I forgot to say about that, but do carry one, and have had to use it.
  13. This roadside tool kit is getting close to my garage tool kit. Do you really need to carry a trolley jack, axle stands and a grease gun? Why not do the maintenance at home?

    I thought of the things that might go wrong that I could safely and relatively easily fix at the side of the road or in a campsite.
    Throttle cable.
    Clutch cable.
    Alternator belt.
    1lt 15w40 Oil.

    That’s all the parts I carry, and a few tools to be able to fit them. I’m unlikely to be changing wheel bearings, CV joints, suspension ball joints, crankshafts or clutches in a field (I’m keeping away from yellow snow- up enders) so there is no point in carrying a bus load of tools and spare parts.

    I don’t even have a spare wheel but I do have:
    A tyre repair kit, a sealant spray and a very small 12v compressor. I know that wouldn’t be any good if there was a tyre blow out but as the tyre would be wrecked anyway I’d just drive slowly to where I could buy a new tyre (it hasn’t happened in 50 years).

    In addition I also carry the legal stuff for the countries I visit:
    Reflective jackets for all passengers.
    Warning triangles
    Headlamp beam deflectors
    Breathalysers (2) it is still an offence in France if you don’t have them although you will not be prosecuted.
    Fire extinguisher

    And of course
    A full driving licence
    Insurance certificate
    Registration document (V5C)

  14. I live in a flat, so it's my garage/camper tool kit which happens to live in the camper.
