Is this a 164 or a 166?Howdy....
Think I might have cocked up today....
I made a mistake whilst doing a few bits such as lower suspension arm dust cover and front discs and pads etc. However, I had read somewhere what the disc retaining bolt was accessed through the hub.
So I unscrewed the bolt but have realised that it was actually one of the bolts for the wheel bearing housing.
I then tried to screw it back in but it won't bite!!
Any advice greatly appreciated....
Also happy to take the abuse for being a numpty
Great to hear about 164s getting "shown some love"! I don't know if they're available in the 'States, but the big rubber bush on the rear end of the front wishbone is thought to contribute a lot to the toque steer. You can buy stiffer aftermarket polyurethane bushes, (which I use once the OEM ones have gone soggy), and they do seem to make a noticeable difference for not much penalty in harshness.Makes a huge difference. I also did rear struts. Waiting for front sway bar links.
Sorry, I've never worked on a 166! Those look like socket head bolts (e.g. Allen bolts or Torx). How did you get the key or bit into the head to undo it? Is there a hole in the axle flange? If so, take the screw right out and have a look at the thread on the end to see if it's damaged. Hopefully, the corresponding female thread in the upright won't be damaged.
They do still exist, Jason at Alfissimo International has them at a reasonable price (although it gets a bit more expensive with UK shipping and duties) but just at present, getting goods into the UK is something of a problem... . I don't really want to risk things getting lost amongst the piles of rotting fish and vegetables at our borders!You could not find the right overhaul kit for the de-tensioner?
Put the meter one click to the right of where it is now, so that the maximum scale is 20 volts. Your car is 12 Volts (maybe up to 15 with the engine running) so you won't harm the meter.I've managed to rule out the washer pump as to why the windscreen washer has stopped working.
Pump runs fine when connected directly to the battery.
I did notice a fair amount of corrosion/oxidation on the terminals.
I connected the volt meter but tbh I'm not really sure what I'm looking at... And don't say a volt meter 🤣🤪
