Hi Lacabrera, a straight swap from carpet to rubber? Can you confirm that the carpet has no semi-rigidness about it? I'm worried about a spungy floor. And do you have a link for the rubber? Last time I googled 'rubber' I blushed...
Lol, yes the floor is a bit spongey I had some Altro floor covering left over from a job and used it as an underlay. This is the rubber flooring I used. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stud-Pen...-/333909457650?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286

Threadlocked swirl flap screws, reassembled everything and then lost a 1/4" bit adapter which I dropped down the front of the radiator.

It didn't make it to the ground and wasn't on the front undertray when I removed it. At a bit of a lost where it's gone.
Just got to hope its not lodged in or near any moving parts 😱

It went down the front of the radiator so missed all the belts and my Elgrand is 2WD so no front driveshaft to worry about.

Editted:

Found it behind the foglight.

Made myself a Service Record booklet, which only highlights the lack of history in Japan from 28,000km to 86,000km 😳

managed to repair the rear door locking button, it had been pushed too hard by 1 of my offspring, & was hiding in the hole.
had to remove the rear door internal panel, then the number plate etc to get access to it, ended up the metal bracket its attached to had corroded, so resorted to a substantial cable tie to secure, all back together, working fine now, happy
