Hi,
I dont remember. But as there is two indent you need to work on the both. You'll build them as new as the factory did.

Re: Seat Runners - 1965, S1, 4.2 FHC

Hi Using a chisel ( not the flat one but the tappered), make a push-piece with an oval male head. The head's size must be similar to the embossed mark on the slide. Use a hydraulic press to push back the pressed stops of the slide. It will free the slides. Clean and straighten the different parts. M...

Re: Winter storage on axle stands

I don't like the idea of putting the car on jacks for 4 or 5 months.
All the bushs are tightened with the car in static on its wheels. They're going to be in extreme extension during all this time and it's not going to be very good. Look at the angle of the radius arm...

Re: Fixing of the metal channel around the door/window openings

Jonathan,
you are right, use the rivets with the correct length.
Measure the thickness to be riveted and use the rivet whose maximum capacity is in this depth.
This will give you a little ball in the back.
I sell these rivets and 8 out of 10 customers take too long.

HI martin, About the castor angle. Looking at photo 1and 3 I ask me a question. I find that there is a lot of threading apparent your upper triangle shaft. It seems to bumping against the washer of the front block. Don't you have a very free steering with little or no natural return of the steering ...

Re: Camber angle shims (Correction)

" PS the shims have a hole at one end and a slot at the other (front have 2 holes at the top). If installed correctly the hole should be at the top. To add/remove shims you remove the top bolt and only loosen the bottom one. You can now slide shims on and off the lower bolt. " After looking the Jagu...

Re: Fixing of the metal channel around the door/window openings

Hi,
The head of the rivet is flat when you apply it by the outside. The seal can be properly mount.
If you do this by the inside, the ball of the rivet is in the U shap so the seal is impossible to fit.

Re: Best type of exterior mirrors

Hi,
I prefer bullet on the bonnet.
You don't turn a lot your head to look behind.
I also found it more aesthetic.

Re: Impact noise on each bump

I solved my parasitic noises. - I have refocused the engine and gearbox assembly. - Bend the protective aluminum sheet that touched the box. - Correctly adjusted the 3rd support point. - Even if they didn't really touch each other, I put a bigger gap between the 2 exhaust pipes. - Tighten the bolts ...

Re: Stripped gearbox support captive nut

Hi
These nuts are accessible inside the passenger and driver compartment flush with the gearbox tunnel cover.
You could weld the nut and used an helicoil to repair.
