Hello

Postby Skull » Sun Aug 04, 2013 5:36 pm

Just a quick hello from me ....

This looks to be THE forum for me and my current car Xantia 2.1 TD

Just got it and needs a little work prior to MOT (burst brake line/seized rear height the initial faults) and adopting it into the family

£47 for a OSF brake line was a :shock:

Fairly happy to work on her but the Haynes manual seems to have skimped on the hydraulics chapter [-X

If I need some advice there looks to be plenty of helpful people on here with much acquired experience / knowledge

Wish me luck [-o<

Right started the job but only got so far with the rain spoiling my fun ..... time to search for tips to gain better access ABS fitting end eased off but wheel arch to brake hose access is a nightmare and the 8mm nut seems to be 7.5 :-k Where's that hacksaw blade ......

In that position if my 8mm flare nut spanner fails I cut the old pipe off close to the union and use a tiny quarter inch drive 8mm deep six sided socket, bend the tip of a paperclip or something to hook the old seal out of the connector, be very careful not to mutilate the other pipes.
