Fixed the front return pipes, afew more to do!

Post by BxTZDkyle » Sun Jun 08, 2014 10:07 pm

As you expect fixing one problem arrises several more.

Replaced both front return pipes as they were split but now have a leak on the rear. It seems to be from the black round bit just infront of the exhaust (anyone tell me the name and purpose of this?)

That is the rear height corrector. I also have a leak from mine & I can't get 2 of the pipes undone.

Is it a fixable part or replace? And do they still sell them new. Pipes shouldn't be a problem they are rusted to bell but ill cut and replace if needed

the height corrector very seldom gives any trouble, apart from the rubbery bits perishing/splitting,

all the rubbery bits are available from the likes of
