I hope you had a good birthday despite the bongo problems :D , Hopefully Lakeside will get it sorted this time, must be getting a bit embarrassing for them :roll:

Very sorry your having such bother Manie. Has the garage checked simple stuff like the banjo filter etc. I guess they must have but....

I do hope it gets sorted so you can enjoy getting out in it [-o<

Manie, are lakeside garage at Wraysbury?
I think they are linked to 321away who sells Bongos at Wokingham ( see there advert on home page and check the parts & servicing page).
If so one hopes that they do know what they are about, perhaps they are just a bit slow on sorting out some problems.

Fingers crossed you are back on the road v soon & best birthday wishes =D>

Did lakeside supply willamina?
Perhaps they should exchange her for another proper bongo, under the sale of goods act.

No, unfortunately they didn't, it was a "dealer" from the Heathrow area, they had bought a warranty with it but it seems it's not worth the paper it's written on & they have got nowhere with him :roll:
Manda,I've had a silly thought, have they tried running it with the fuel cap off, could be the breather blocked, or if not that, i wonder if it could be the fuel pipe or pick up in the tank blocked? Get them to blow the line back through with a blast of compressed air maybe? Had a similar problem with a friends car a few years ago, worth a try [-o<
