Knocking and a-clunking

Copperslip is abrasive. Grease with MOLY better on trunnion bushes and of course grease nipples on wishbone outer ends. CV joint grease with moly.

I got 2 a month or so ago and have them fitted as they seemed good price and good name and thought would get another 2 to replace the next two tyres when front end rebuild completed. The time has ...

BONNET RUBBER BUFFERS GTC

The fairies that keep hiding my tools seem to have stolen the rubber buffer that the bonnet closes onto at the front nearside. I seem to remember that with my GTE I came across a blank when trying to find a replacement and had to cut up something rubbery from something else. The GTC has a hole that ...

Way too low

Ken The first thing to do is turn the lower wishbones up the right way so that the eyes are sticking downwards. Peter did say "1' from memory....so may be more. It is the length and rate of spring that will determine the height of the car on any particular damper. Your damper appears to have non adj...

wiper failure...

Suspect the plunger switch on the motor. Somewhere on this site there are detailed descriptions of the motor, how it works and how to replace the old obsolete plunger switch with a new one.

Shock absorbers

I once had a very hard ride on a front corner of a GTE which turned out to be due to a slightly bent damper spindle and not helped by the trunnion bushes being a bit corroded and stiff (new ownership and prior to my renewing both and fitting grease nipples). Just a reminder that a lot of spring comp...

When my engine dipstick tube was loose (just a push fit) I tried opening out tube but to no avail as I just could not get dia. just right to be a good push fit. I...

GTC door tongue

But remember when removing that the plate with captive nuts inside the pillar will fall down inside if you take both screws out. Take one out, twist the catch till you can put screw back into inner plate then remove second screw. A magnet may help to manoeuvre the plate to line up holes when replaci...

Cologne rocker covers

I remember the usual recommendation is just a smear of grease both sides. The cork ones will settle over time so need checking and gentle tightening down at times.

Replacement front seats

They are velour beige and tired Both the seat and back are independent covers and are not at all difficult to remove from the frames/foam for renewal/refurbishing. They are held onto the frame by push on clips. The underneath diaphragm that takes your weight is only hooked on to the frame and can b...
