    • Even better

      I bent an old open ended spanner to do the job. It's tight in there!

      • You can get in OK if you remove the oil pressure switch...

        • My interior light switch was broken and I couldn’t get a new one.
          This Coupe one is still available from AT for about €10. It’s almost identical but the housing is smaller.
          So I set about swapping the broken bits over.





          Now it’s all fixed

          • As I slowly fix things that aren't working, I find new things I didn't even know were broken! I took the car out fishing last night. It was the first time I had driven it at night and I noticed that none of the window controls in the door are lit when the lights are on. Shouldn't they be?

            I also have something more serious to worry about. I notice that when I start the car one of the drive belts screeches. Both the PAS and alternator belts appear tight but there is a rubber powder around the pulley indicating something is wearing. When I watch the anti vibration pulley, its not running true at its outer end. You can see a wobble. I suspect that the rubber damping has distorted whilst the car was laid up. Any advice guys?

            • The grain of rice bulbs are easy to replace on the switches, I did mine a few years back. I got the bulbs from ebay i think.

              As for the pulley, that does sound more worrying as at high revs its going to have higher forces i expect.

              • Apparently the old switch has been superceded and you can now buy new switches that have leds in them.

                • It’s quite common for the harmonic damper to go wobbly with age.

                  • How many bulbs are there? I cant imagine they would all blow. I'm thinking its more likely a wiring issue.

                    Anyone had the pulley wobble?

                      But can I keep using it?

                      • Someone was selling one early this year on the forum coz I said Brian smith should buy it as his is not very good but he said it has been like it for years and I shouldn't worry. Don't know if it sold.

                        • The one on my Ur was wobbly for years, eventually replaced it and it definitely ran smoother.

                            Thanks very much. I've had a look but cant see it.

                              Might have to see how it goes
