Faultfinding

My brothers are both engineers and after a fashion so am I. We will often discuss faultfinding and repairs that we have done, unlikely failure modes, heroic diagnoses, rough temporary fixes and the like.

One of my friends told me about a problem and I think finding the root cause might even have challenged my brothers. He was driving in his classic mini when his heavily pregnant wife said "Oh shit! I think my waters have broken". I don't know how he worked out what had actually happened, but one of the cabin heater hoses was punctured and was spraying warm coolant into the passenger's lap.
