  • Yeah that bit should not be sloppy, they’re easily damaged with rough handling, once fitted they seem to hold together well enough until wear and tear sets in.
    I’d be inclined to take the opportunity to replace them whist the opportunity is present.

  • Good morning John & welcome. Something doesn’t hang together there. The nylon inserts age, become brittle & are adept at failing if you try & strip the joint down. There was a spell when f owners replaced the standard foot for the lower design as used on the 160 & much hair was pulled out during that phase.
    I have & intend to fit shortly a full set of 160 suspension arms which are inaccessible behind an immobile car, I hope that this will change either later today or tomorrow in which case I’ll inspect the foot hold & give you a definitive reply.

  • As a matter of fact this part can be removed from the diaphragm by inflating the diaphragm with compressed air via the fluid port
    (With the sphere removed from the car of course) Once inflated you can twist the alloy cone shaped piece out from the lip formed in the diaphragm.
    Refitting is just reverse the procedure.
    The reason that someone might do this is that the only difference between front and rear spheres is this alloy cone, and they may need to convert a front sphere to a rear sphere, as rears are almost impossible to find now and the Trophy models spheres are totally unavailable so standard sphere can be converted by using the alloy cones from the Trophy spheres in the standard ones.

    So even if your old spheres are totally buggered and unable to be regassed……Remove and save these before you throw the old spheres in the bin! Especially if they are Trophy or standard rear spheres!

    N.B. Trophy spheres, are the same pard front and rear.

  • Are you referring to the cast alloy bit that’s on the bottom of the sphere?
    With no hydraulic pressure in the sphere that will always move a bit as it’s secured to the lower diaphragm by a ridge and lip arrangement

  • I don't believe that you have lost the barcode.
    Either the Pektron accepted it, in which case:-
    A: it is waiting for the matching fob to be used
    B: if you enter it again I think that it will refuse it, because it's already been entered.

    Or

    It didn't accept it, in which case you can just enter it again.

    The codes are only one time use in the sense that the written code matches a fob until the fob code rolls out of the window and the code changes. Unless you press the fob buttons dozens of times, the code is still valid. So only a new code and fob can be used, but, they remain new for a while, not just once.

    I hope I've explained that well, I'm not sure I have ...

    Watch the YouTube video that I made and you will see that I ran into similar problems, but in the end it did work.

    I think that what you should do is to start the process again, with the 22 digit code that you already entered. If you get an error then that means that the code is already in the Pektron so just carry on regardless.

  • A rising coolant level when hot can also be just air in the system, but a combustion gas check will decide the matter.

  • A very philosophical outlook. There are a good many used parts on my car which have been considered redundant having been associated with a motor with a duff head gasket.
    I’m glad of the myopic outlook of these ex owners, as my car improves in comfort, speed & facility with each addition. On Thursday it had a fixed steering column, today it has an adjustable one.
    I now have to wire it up!

  • Cobber is correct, however there are kits that test for exhaust gases in your coolant. These are available via e-bay for less than £15, which is cheap money for peace of mind (or to cast you into the depths of despair if positive).
    Head gasket tester sniff tester should bring up one or two types.

  • You are probably worrying about nothing, but for your piece of mind you should pressure test the cooling system and do a compression test.
