Re: Windscreen wiper woes

Hello! I will post here, because i don`t want to start a new topic: last year I took the windscreen motor wiper out from the engine bay without making a photo to the wires sm2 ( since then i`ve had just one speed of the wiper, without the intermittent function by connecting the white wires together)...

Re: Inner roof lining - Removal

Thanks Ride_on, I saw your reply after posting back in the summer but I forgot to take pictures and upload them. So, my sedan had a factory sunroof until I have decided that it has to come off - it was too rusted, and the previous owner of the car had broken some of the components. This year i saw i...

Re: Inner roof lining - Removal

Gentlemans, i have a small question: will the headliner from a 3 door fit into a sedan? Does it have the same length? Thank you.

Re: 360 gearbox the same as a 240

The gearbox ratios are fixed and the same between models, the diff ratio varies between models. That`s all i wanted to hear, that the gearbox ratios are identical, no matter there were mounted on a gas engine, or a diesel engine. i`ll keep you up-date tomorrow: so i`ll have to swap the input shafts...

Re: 360 gearbox the same as a 240

Like Zohan would say: no no no no no :D . My biggest concern is that the box which i have pulled out of the car- in pics is the one with knackered input bearings is beyond repair (syncros, gear wheels). On the other hand, my first box from a B19 engine is also non-woking, which leaves me with the D1...

Re: 360 gearbox the same as a 240

Is it doable to put one of the input shaft from a p...

Re: 360 gearbox the same as a 240
