Thanks! It took me a few hours to make that video, the next day it took me 5 minutes to solve the problem...
That seems the next logical step anyway, I certainly can't see anything physically blocking the rod or the linkage but you never know. A gearbox oil change might even fix it.
Anyway, here's a quick update for everyone for the Q4:
-My replacement rear springs have arrived, and they look right to me so fingers crossed.
-New dust boots and bump stops on the way.
-Rear slotted discs are still out there somewhere, rear pads are due in the next few days.
-I have removed the front bumper, stripped it, sanded and now it has the first coat of primer.
-I painted and fitted the replacement left wing mirror. My electric mirrors work!
-Removed the LPG tank and bits of pipe from the boot (which was very heavy) and refitted my boot carpets. Unfortunately I think I need a new set of carpets as all mine have been ripped out at some point
-Refitted the belt covers
-Fitted a spare used idle valve
-A few other odd jobs.
Oh by the way Alfan (I completely forgot about this)... do you still have that Zender spoiler? And are you still willing to part with it? No problem if not, I just remembered yesterday when clearing out the boot
