Documentation needed

G
651 11
Hi guys, I was wondering if someone can help me. I want to refit the original wheel spacers to my car and in order to do this without paying through my nose for special certification I need to have some form of documentation to show that these were original equipment. My owner's manual doesn't say anything about it so I'm looking for a copy of page from either a service manual or parts manual that clearly shows the fitment of the spacers on my model. My car is a early 1995 V6.
Thanks in advance,

Why would you need special certification for parts which are standard fitment? And, as wrinx says, how would anyone know either that they are fitted now or that they weren't fitted before? Does your MoT test (or local equivalent) involve removing the wheels?

eek! eek! Not again.......major confusion over this one. Most 155's must have lost them over the years but some owners didnt have them fitted either, despite having the cars from new. :confused:

Over here in NZ the use of wheel spacers is banned. This is why low volume certification would be needed. Chances are they were taken off either before my car reached the country or were taken off shortly after. If people servicing the car come across them they are obliged to remove them. After reading all the previous posts on the subject I decided to ask the authorities what would be required. It turns out if I can prove that the spacers were original fitment, I can use them!

Fletch, the "bz" means benzine (petrol), "gamma" is just a name they gave the cars I think....dunno.

You may also see "type167" (its parts of your chassis number too), this was just the factory designation for the model.
