I already mentioned it in a mail to Chris: I think green Scimitars in France are cursed :evil: Luckily the troubleshooting in my case is straight forward and not a mys...

Re: Ma vie avec "la bête verte"...

Hello everyone, good news first - I enjoyed a very nice meeting with another Scimitar today. I put some photoes in the Occitan noggin thread . Not so good, though not disastrous... on my way back, about three roundabouts away from home, suddenly a scratching noise started. As usual it was coming fro...

Re: SE8 Axle noise query

The only problem seems to be to find someone who sells a refurbished axle. Don't know what the situation is like for GTCs, but for the SE5 I keep asking the usual suspects if they have one - and still the answer is "no" as there are no crownwheels and pinions available... Fingers crossed you find a ...

Re: Ma vie avec "la bête verte"...

No Chris, no worries, it's not the Alpine garage :wink: Was there again Friday evening, car on the lift, partially dismantled... apparently the mechanic is not willing to accept defeat, as he explained that he had not had issues like that when he worked on other diffs, including Jags. Don't know if ...

Went there, had a chat with the mechanic, he showed me a bunch of shims he did not have to use (but hey, they finally ordered parts on their own) and explained that now there is no more contact between spacer and axl...

Re: Belgian SE5 again

If this is the original add from 2012 it might refer to the then-released movie "Cloclo" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Way_(2012_film)
Anyone seen it? Does it feature a Scim??? Have to ask my boss, he is a HUGE fan, even named his daughters after songs from Cloclo...
