Hy Fox,


Sommerfeldt,
I am grateful to you for researching this subject. I intended to do it after the repair, because I thought I could do it by going down the tank.
So, many many thanks.

So, at the end, it's repaired. It's the misery to replace this damned pressure hose, but with a pair of arms and a jack, it's alright.

1.Free the fuel tank cap.
2.Jack the car safely,
3.Put a jack under the fuel tank with a large piece of wood,
4.Unbolt the three bolts that hold the fuel tank (12),
5.Open the clip behind the wheel backside of the rear wheel, backside of the fuel filter,
6.Lower the tank halfway,
7.Open the clip on the top of the fuel tank, by the inside of the car,
8.A buddy give you the pressure by under the car,
9.Put the hose correctly in the upper clip, close it.
10.Replace all the things as they were at the origin.

I definitely will invest in lifting ramps.

Tomorrow, the timing belt, the serpentine belt, replacement of the gearbox oil, replacement of the steering fluid.

It will free my hallway ! :mrgreen:

A pair of arms and a jack goes a long way with these cars. :D
Good job! That car will be like new once you're through, that's for sure. :)

I learn from my mistakes...

Unfortunatly, while we were trying to screw up the tank, the wire of the fuel pump has been a little bit touched.
The cable has become bare and touched the clip that holds it to the pump weld. As a result, the gauge was only working intermittently. I think I need to take the pump out and try to do the welding again.
This means a new pump seal. Minimum breakage, actually.
I precise that the yellow "glue" you can see on the picture wasn't on my pump.
As I said, I learn from my mistakes.

I find this car extremely tolerant with newbies... :?

Hy Guys,

I continue to repair Blue.

New question : Is this the correct part I have to buy to repair my windscreen ? and if so, is there a special thing to do to install thorium moulding ? Glue ? Or does it stand just by the action of installing it ?

Thanks for help .

Manov

I don't know if you've done the timing belt yet but I had a very hard time cleaning off
the old gasket then after I was done someone suggested to remove the wheel and
go through the wheel well.

Your rear brakes probably need some work, but they do not look very bad like ours did,
here are some tips after repairing them several times:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=81876
I finally concluded that the rear
flex hoses were not flowing freely and probably caused the pads to drag and overheat
the caliper. The hoses are difficult to do so I'd probably try a basic clean up and pad
replacement, then as a last resort do the hoses.

Hy PeteB,

well, I don't understand why you're talking about rear brakes... There must be a time rift in space time, or I've missed something. Anyway, thanks for the link.

We have all done it at one time or another - posted a reply to the wrong thread. The challenge is to find the right one and cross post a reply to you in that one, to keep the game on.
