Hi Neil

I assume then the order is manifold/heat shield plate/gasket/down pipe, looking at the exploded parts diagram?

Just seems a little odd having the metal of the manifold mating to the metal of the shield plate, I may put some exhaust sealer between the two.

Just one gasket plus the heat shield in the ones I have changed (1300 and 2000).

Hi All

Just looking at the parts book and confused by exactly what should be there.

The manifold to down pipe also has a plate which attaches the exhaust shield, but in the parts book it is unclear if I use one or two gaskets and if one is different to the other. I have some of the metalised gaskets and think I have a more fibre based one. So can anyone confirm what gaskets I should use?

Thanks

Peter

Peter, re. the plastic part that fits in the door, i've seen these with a steel roller perhaps from later cars?

I think that,if a roller could be turned, making a fresh unit may be feasable.

Thoughts from a while back.

Hi Nigel

Would be interesting to see it, though that sounds more expensive than the plastic one, so maybe earlier (would be Series 1 if so as my car is very early S2).

I reassembled and fitted the ones I ‘modified’ above and they work very nicely thank you, so another job ticked off. Long way still to go, but still enjoying it after all this time, even if some jobs present significant frustration.

Hi Eric

It may well be the plastic part is worn, but nothing much can be done to change that. The original metal springs appear to have a plastic type of coating/thick painted surface on them originally which was definitely worn away on the ones I have.

Interesting. Normally it is just the plastic section worn or broken that has the doors flying open.

Thanks again Stuart. I aim to take the original manifold off the car tomorrow and offer up the Strada one and see how it fits or not.

Another small job appeared whilst I was working on the window winders. The car currently has the front wheels up on ramps, and on opening the doors they should stay open curtesy of a door spring, sadly neither do, so I removed the spring assembly and it was obvious they were worn and the gap in the U shaped metal part was too wide. This is spring type steel, so to get the gap reduced I placed the U end in the vice to close up the gap and applied some heat to the bend. This worked a treat as the gap stayed reduce. Be careful if you try this as one of them I over did it and the gap was too small, fortunately I have a spare or two. I then cleaned them up with the wire wheel and a quick coat of paint and they are ready to fit and hopefully the doors will now stay fully open when asked to. Picture shows the two springs and one of the mounts in the door.

Yes  4-2-1 in stainless. CSC I think. I'll fish it out and get you a photo or two.

Hi Stuart

Thanks for the offer, what is the manifold (4-2-1)?

Peter
