Hi folks,

   Is it possible to adjust the heater inlet flap movement (84 HPE)?  Mine doesn't close by quite some margin, and the lever doesn't move more than about 60% of the way across.  Hopefully the answer doesn't involve removing the heater!

I see Ed China did a video with them too - a year or so ago now but I'd not seen it.

Hi all.

Was wondering if anyone knows where to source wheel arch extensions for a coupe ?

Someone did suggest using escort arch extensions and modifying it to fit the coupe..
which I am not against doing just wondered if anyone had any other thoughts on how to go about this ?
Or does anyone know where I can source a set that will pre fit the beta coupe.

I have attached below the sort of thing I am looking for ...

Thanks in advance

It was pretty much as I suspected - hard slog and lots of profanity, bruised arms and knuckles and aching knees and shoulders (but the last two are mainly to do with age...) It took a fair amount of time to remove the detached ball joint, and even more to get the replacement linkage in place. And when I had just about tightened the first arm up (laboriously tightening the nut by a quarter turn each time - no room for a ratchet spanner), I realised that the 11mm spanner I was using to stop the ball from rotating was tight up against the ball joint, and there was still thread left. So my last task for the night was to take a hapless 11mm open ended spanner and grind it down with a flap wheel to make it slim enough to complete the job.

No-one ever said it would be easy. And it wasn't...

Thanks Ammy. I imagine that with a 4 post lift (or a deep pit) it would be a minor inconvenience. Underneath a set of (fairly low) ramps it's going to be a king-size PITA, I think...

Just had the Betaboyz kit fitted by my local garage. They appear to have installed them all from under the car,  they certainly hadn't disturbed the long rod from inside.

Hi all,

I'm now down in France, with the car on ramps and stuck in first gear. The ball joint on one end of the (puny) OE Lancia short linkage rod had popped out of its retaining bush, which is cracked and useless. I've managed to get the remains of the OE linkage rod out, but the offending ball joint is still attached to the large rod which connects to the gear lever and I cannot see any way of detaching that part in situ.

When replacing the short linkage rod (I have the replacement Betaboyz part with me) is it necessary to remove the long rod from inside the car to do this? I can't see any way of fitting both ends of the replacement short rod from under the car. One end, yes - both ends, no...

If anyone has done this job I'd be grateful of any tips you may have.
