    SJW,

    Re: Circled brackets, IIRC they are a V6 thing (each w/two threaded studs, correct?), I believe they are the two rear-most of the attachment points for cars that could have then been fitted with an additional plastic under-tray extension that also fitted onto the aft edge of the usual one, similar to those found on some of the later, larger and VW cars also.

      Attached to the body at the rear of the front subframe maybe a V6 thing?

      It's attachment point for subframe reinforcement plates which your car is missing. One of the V6 body differences.

        Thanks for the information, didn't expect the old V6 to need additional support its not a very exciting power plant

          Lot more low down torque than the 7A, hence the faster acceleration times, pretty much across the board.

              Interesting, so do those two triangles you've shown then fasten to the rear sub-frame through-bolts, or to something else? Thanks in advance.

                Yes, rear subframe bolt goes through the single hole. I'll take a picture if get the chance to be under a v6 car.

                  Hoping to get the S2 back into daily use in April all things going well. S6 for sale but I'm slowly doing jobs on it and would like to keep it too, but if someone wants it then I would probably let it go.

                  Keep the updates coming you certainly know your way around these engines now.

                    Thought it was in pretty good nick compared to my 95 Coupe.

                    Made a start on the the rear end.
                    All the bolts came out ok but the brake lines were all seized.


                    Downpipe is sleeved to 76mm a neat job with heat shield still in place.

                    Lowered the whole lot as suggested using the lift.
                    Forgot about the vac lines to the diff until the clips came pinging off.

                      Working on the Limo last couple of weeks.
                      Broke down the rear end in order to shift all that weight off my old table before it collapsed.
                      All the main bolts loosened off ok but all the brake lines and hoses were all kaput.
                      Was going to blast and powdercoat everything but with the lockdown I have been using the pressure washer, wire brush, wire cup and some electrolysis on the smaller bits.

                      Glad I managed to take all the parts to my mates work to press out the bushes a few weeks ago.
                      Got everything in bits so lots of cleaning and preparing at the moment.

                      After the table frame came in handy decided to stick some wheels on it and had some old metal shelf's to make a mobile up-cycled workbench.

                      Rear diff look in good condition drain and fill bungs have loosened off, tempted to just clean and reinstall but there is some furry oily residue on the fuel tank shields that maybe points towards a diff seal leaking so maybe it will be best to change all the mechanical seals?
