The 405 has a little 'vacuum' capsule and spring loaded plunger to the rear of the pump, that is adjusted on a screw thread in a similar manner to the throttle rest stop or full throttle stop. I've a...

Nah it was a guy in his mid thirties, but I don't think he was using it much, if at all, and the fuel was well on the light. Here's another observation-- the car does not slow down too well when yo...

Well, for anyone reading or interested, I ended up removing the control lever and re indexing it a 'notch' back, which cured the dead travel, but the car still seemed to be holding back, even for a na...

Hi guys, just purchased a 405 Estate, 1.9d family wagon, and am having a bit of trouble with the bosch injection pump. Basically, the first quarter of the throttle travel does nothing.  I have adju...

Cheers for the suggestion, but most of the metal has disintegrated, and on one side it looks like the lens might be about to fall out!  I'll keep my eyes open for some replacements

Awesome, thanks for.clearing that up, don't suppose you'd have any idea where to find the surrounds or is it likely to be a custom job? There are cibie airports available but they are very expensive

Post: RE: Rear dampers too short?

Cool, that's a relief, those dampers were quite a bargain.  So I can compress the axle, fit the dampers and have the dampers support the axle, or do I need to remove the TBs and adjust the arms?
