    Pull the brush module out of the alternator and see it it’s ok, might just need the module or the bearings greasing
    Thanks for the tip John. I will give that a go.

    • Your power steering pipe should pass through a plastic shroud that closes off the left hand edge of the radiator as you look at it. The coolant pipe to thermostat also goes through the plastic. Have you got this bit in your stash? Now is the time to put that bit in as imagine doing it later when you lose coolant and ps fluid disconnecting the pipes to do it!

        Thanks for pointing that out Steve. I do have some plastic covers and will have a look in the morning.

        • I've just been looking for a pic but can I find one? Nope. The top cover is easy to identify so is the side cover - it fits top to bottom at the side of the rad and has 2 big holes in it for the pipes. I think there is also a smaller panel to box off the right hand side but that is pretty small. There is also an odd shaped piece of black foam which wedges somewhere in between the right hand panel and the inner wing. The aim is to stop air getting past the radiator down the sides and Channel it all through the system.

            Thanks very much. I just found a pic from when I visited Trist in Brecon. As his car didn't have the top cover I can now see the side covers. I haven't got any foam and think only the left cover is in my parts box.

                • your corrugated pipe for the hydraulic fluid should have a support round it - it attaches to the bracket next to the headlamp. if it's not there, that pipe will vibrate and crack

                    Thanks Mike. I spotted that and hopefully Kit is assisting me with it and the plastic cowl.

                    • I got my nice EM fitted.

                      Cleaned up


                      Heat shield fitted and some of the studs shortened to accommodate the Wagner style EM


                      And fitted with new copper nuts. The bottom ones are not easy to get to with a spanner

                          • Turbo fitted. Its a standard turbo. I'm on the lookout for a good RS2 turbo.This is just to get me going.


                            Also fitted my front wishbones
                            I had to remove the rear subframe bolt to get access. Right PITA!
                            Bushes were also super tight fit. Suspect that’s down to powder coat.

                            • Front struts in

                              And brakes test fitted



                              I appear to be missing the brackets for the brake pipe and abs sensor on the strut body. Is it just one per side? I have the one on the car inner wing.

                              Also. I take it the brake wear sensor is of no use on the S2? I haven’t seen a plug for it.

                              • Yes there is a bracket each side for the brake line and the ABS sensor - it bolts through the two holes in the inner wing.

                                See pic from my project below:

                                image_70511.jpg

                                There is no factory provision for the wear sensor, although you could easily tee into the brake fluid level sensor circuit on the driver side (RHD) and PAS fluid level sensor on the passenger side.
                                Both of these trigger the autocheck warning by pulling to ground.
