Narooma Day 1

Friday 16 September 2016

Fine and mainly sunny today.

We were up early and on the road to Bega by 7:00 am. We arrived at the Nissan dealer in Bega at 8:00 am and they were able to look at the Navara while we went and had breakfast. A couple of hours later they rang to say that they had completed their inspection.

The Navara has a leaking exhaust manifold gasket (this is the third time). a worn alternator bearing with a bit of a rattle. and a worn air-conditioner compressor bearing. None of these issues require immediate repair, and they suggested that we wait until we get home to have any repairs carried out. In any event they would not be able to get parts until the following week by which time we would have moved on. We have decided to switch off the air-conditioner to prevent the electric clutch from switching in and out, and not to have the head-lights on during the day as has been our practice, to take the load off the alternator.

We arrived back at Narooma about lunch time and went for a drive around some of the tourist spots.
