Peter and Eric- thanks, you are both right, sort of.

Bolt has gone, possibly partially in hole tbc, but unbelievably, the plate I have, having found it on the drive years ago and put it the 'I wonder what that fell off' box!

You also need to fight the urge to leave anything temporarily on the closed lid or it will be out of action for six months minimum.

Ask me how I know...  Grin

Hi Mark

When you say absent do you mean the removable bracket with the bolt through it?

Probably missing because the 6x1 bolt snapped off in the hole! so best check. If so cable ties will work if you are not good at removing sheared bolts.

If it is indeed a 'thing' - the support/connection between the brake pipes and the front strut. - haven't got close enough to see how it is fixed yet. Completely absent on the other side of the car, just the bracket.

Thanks

Mark

Hi Graham

Good call, I also replaced my bleed nipples with stainless which will hopefully help long term.

Peter
Yes, I will always use stainless fittings on brake unions, to me it's a no-brainer. I will also replace any non-critical steel fastener with a stainless equivalent, as long as the original fastener is grade 8.8 or lower. High tensile fasteners (grade 10.9 or 12.9) must be replaced like for like. But when using stainless fittings it's important to use aluminium or copper anti-seize paste/grease to guard against galling.

Hi John

Good question, one reason for getting one is that there is more reuse of cleaner, however I will have to enquire how to dispose of it once it is deemed no longer effective.

What's the deal with disposing of the water / oil afterwards?

As an aside, with the Spider I spent countless hours cleaning parts sat on the floor with a bowl, brushes and Jizer. This time I decided I am getting too old for that and reusing the degreaser would be a good thing, so have bought an SGS SPW200 45litre parts washer. Looked at second hand, but at 119 new and delivered it was not that much more than what folk were asking for used ones. Should make cleaning stuff a whole lot more enjoyable. I have also bought aqueous based degreaser which I have so far used on my bike chain and tools I used to strip the suspension which works really well.
