Re: selespeed faults HELP
Re swapping the actuator.
It may work without calibrating, but it needs calibrating to work properly.
You need to be very careful, the system runs at 50bar (725psi) pressure. That pressure needs to be safely released before you attempt to remove the actuator.
Your email mentions a Selespeed error message when you hold the lever forward or backward, that is normal (it is to warn you that you are holding the lever forward or backward!) you will get the same warning if you drive along with your foot just lightly touching the brake pedal.
Your email also mentions swapping an actuator from a 156, what version of 156?
Even if it is a normal 156 Selespeed the actuator may not fit, there are a couple of different versions of the actuator shaft - gearbox connections and they are not mix and match. (ie the correct actuator needs to go with the correct gearbox).
