surely there is cover in the consumers guarantees act? I guess it would cost more to pursue than it is worth but maybe the threat of a small claim makes it worth more to defend than it is worth?
I am no lawyer mind, so it may not be covered.

terms on this is at owners risk, not covered unless damage is intentional, my point to them was that a pallet was intentionally put on my roof, it didn't get there by accident, my package is clearly labelled as a roof, and therefore im covered, at this the man accepted I had a pretty good point and have now received the documentation to refund my freight costs.

I have been pondering the point of at owners risk, in the regard that a lot of owners may not be aware of this as its often the previous owner who drops off the freight . if the freight company doesn't contact the (owner) then the contract is with the person dropping off the freight , therefore at owners risk may not apply, as the owner has not signed the contract.

From here.

I would have thought removing an oil filter from a L series was about the easiest job I could ever think of, apparently some people still have trouble! 300+ comments and he still hasn't managed to get it off...

I'd just whack a pin punch in those oil holes, and unscrew it with a hammer.

That was suggested within the first 5 comments (read the whole thing for lulz last night). He did that. Also tried a screwdriver. Then a chisel. People told him not to use the chisel, he used the chisel anyway and wrecked the metal. About 100 different ways were suggested to remove the filter, none were tried.

I just checked again and he's at 500+ comments and the filter still seems to be holding out. He has managed to damage a spark plug though:

Any of you guys in Christchurch seen the FWD Sunny with the big front mounted oil cooler and no other mods?

It's pretty sweet.
