Re: Viscomatic hydraulic lines

Hi Maciej That’s really great, thanks for digging out the info, I remember reading your thread concerning the issues with the filter Mine looked like pipe 9 in the Eper so not to much of an issue to get made, and the other lines at the rear need sorting as they are very rusty. The lines from the pum...

Viscomatic hydraulic lines

Hi all

Well after 24 years my Q4’s hydraulic lines are staring to show there age and one has developed a leak.

I will get some made up, but just wondered if anyone has a diagram of them or even better a pattern for making them?

Thanks for any help


Regards Daryl

Mine is on 200,000kms only Plan is to refurb the old ones by replicating the spring pan and getting it welded on to the old body after a de- rust and paint a...

Re: A lucky escape!

The top mount looks to be OK and only appears to be surface rust on the base.

I’m checking the other side and the fronts as well

A lucky escape!

164 Q4 Down! Driving at about 20mph and I hear a massive bang from the rear, it turned out to be a snapped coil spring and collapsed lower spring pan luckily only a 1/4 of a mile from home. I limped her back to my garage with no further damage. I hate to think what would have been the outcome at hig...

Re: 164 Q4 ABS problem (warning light on)

Looks like the front right and rear left solenoid valves have a problem ? These would be part of the ABS unit probably controlled by relays

Running a site is fun, however the maintenance of running the site is only hold by a couple of shoulders. If this site is of any value for you ,we would...

Re: Steering angle sensor

Alfawizz I seem to remember that the best way to get to the sensor was via the drivers side wheel arch! You need to remove the liner and it’s a bit of a blind operation with a lot of difficulty getting the bolt out on the opposite side of the sensor to the wheel arch The alignment of the sensor pick...

Hi Guys Just thought I would share some recent pictures of my Q4.

Re: Replacement odometer display ribbon

Ah, sorry, my mistake. Anyway I tried to replace it but without success - the thing is that the original one is with Mylar but this one is not - so it's impossible to attach it to firmly to the LCD glass (maybe it would be possible with the ACL but I (and noone in my surrounding) has access to this...

Spettacola Sportivo Assen

Hi guys

Is anyone attending the event?

Do you have to book upfront or can you just arrive a pay on entrance? Do you have to be part of a club?

Thanks

M164. Thank you and they were indeed a set from Haydn that were gunmetal grey all over. I had them referubished in a base powder coat of gun metal grey with a dimond cut rim and all new stainless split rim bolts. The car is on standard springs, it would be good to lower her at some point. I need to ...
