    So you want to start by putting in your B/fw information:
    From this you have 3 pools:
    Production car
    Harry's car

    The additions you need to apply the relevant rules:
    Plant can be done by AIA
    Harry's new car needs to be given a new pool but I think it can be fully written off through FYA (50%), though appropiate adjustments need to be made for the private use. (This might be wrong I'd have to double check)

    Disposals you can just remove from the appropiate pool:
    Plant - general
    Production managers car - single asset, calculate the balancing charge and apply appropiate %s
    Harry's old car - single asset as Production managers car.

    Subtotal what you have and calculate the WDA for the general pool.

    I am a little rusty on how private use asset pools interact with the FYA and balancing charges so make sure to double check those.

    I hope this helps.
