Ok,so I have removed the liners(don’t let anyone tel you the just push out)
I will order new ones and a shim set as the old ones were low,I know what the liner stand proud should be the trouble is I can’t find any information regarding fitting them the sealing compound that is applied on the ledge of the liner must make a difference to the stand proud plus the shim,
so do you fit the shim to the liner or the block and then the sealing compound or vice Versa,any body know the processes

Hi,
Just had a look at the Rover Technical Data info, and according to this you run a 2mm bead of hylomer sealant around the stepped portion of the liner, then press the liner into position until it hits on the shoulder.

Thanks for that,my problem is if I shim the liners to the correct height and then put the sealant in I am guessing it will make them higher

Hi, my guess here is virtually nothing. The sealant will be pushed along the sides of the liner.
Don’t forget that there is a tolerance on the heights, so I would set to middle limit before applying the sealant.

Bo, to be sure, can’t you assemble one dry, and measure the height, then assemble one with the sealant and re-measure? This will then tell you the answer that you need. If it is high, you can then remove before the sealant cures and adjust accordingly.
