Sorry I'm being a real 'girl'. Got home tonight and noticed there is a box hanging off at the back of my car. It's about 12" x 10" kind of looks like a mini radiator. There are two pipes/leads going in one end. One is blue the other black. The box is flat on one side and ridged on the other.

The bits that hold it on appear to have snapped so it's dangling from the pipes. Got to get to work tomorrow. Am I ok to somehow strap it back on until I can get to a garage?

What is this mystery box thing? :rolleyes:

BTW It's a 2002 Frontera 2.2dti SWB.

Nothing to do with this thread apart from I noticed that the description of the dangling bit was given in inches, which age group would you be in before you only used metric measurements? I'm in my 50's so was taught in Imperial measurements but having worked in steel fabrication I can use metric just as well. Do some young people only use metric as Imperial is pretty much defunct now?
