  • S2 Avant -93

    Yet another not so special project thread of my S2. I have always had some kind of project to do but it has never been a car -until now. Although RS2 would have been THE car, the prices are way out my budget. So I bought an S2. Not a bad thing after all couse these are not so rare than those RS2's, I'm not under the pressure to keep it totally original. The car has nearly 300 000 km on it, so rust is an issue that needs to be dealt with. Also the previous owners have not been treating the car the way one should, so little surprises come up almost every day.

    Something I've been thinking to do

    - Rebuild the engine and changing all necessary parts to make ~400 whp
    - Paint job
    - Subframes, wishbones etc refurbishment
    - Fixing all the minor faults

    Not too long of a list, but you should see that car. If I wrote everything included to the last point, I'd be up all night.

    I have already changed the timing belt, installed Error404's coil wiring harness and fixed the the nonresponsive AC buttons.

    This project will take forever with the freetime I have, but I'll try to make it. And I don't have garage so everything will happen under the open sky. Really fun with the winters we have here

    Some pics of the car and the weather conditions (already started the t-belt change when took these)

    Changing the coil wiring harness. Thanks Error404 A lot nicer that the mess of the previous owner. The stainless bar over the coils is horrible, but I will get rid of it when I put in the red coils.

      Torquing the crank bolt. Luckily enough my neighbor has a company and they service excavators and JCB's. So he had big enough torque wrench for the bolt. It goes up to 1000nm

            Lets see how long they will last. I'll change them when I take the engine apart.

                Finished the t-belt change today and started the first time in two weeks! But I couldn't bleed the coolant system thoroughly. The bleed nipple on the matrix hose is stuck, so I took it out completely and bled it until only coolant came out and then I forced the nipple back in. It was starting to blow warm into the cabin but just for a short while. Any advice how to properly and thoroughly bleed the system? I might have to buy new matrix hose w/bleed nipple but i understand it costs a fortune

                And there is this thing that the rad fan seems to be controlled with the ac buttons. When the blower is set to 0 the rad fan stops. When I turn the blower on again, no matter of the speed, the rad fan starts. Car has auto AC and the AC was off during this. I found a thread about some relay pin, but I couldn't find it anymore. Any thoughts on this?

                  You don't really need the nipple, you can do it by pulling the hose off. When coolant comes out jam it back on. Bleed the rad with the small bleed screw on top. It helps to take out the screws holding the expansion tank and lift it up a couple of inches. Or take a foot of plastic plumbing pipe that fits tight in the neck of the tank to extend it upwards.

                    Yeah, I read the 'how to bleed coolant system' thread. I have to try it again next week as this weekend is only about work. I'll post some new pics then also. It looks like a car again now that the front bumper and headlights are fitted.
