What is the normal tyre pressure? 2.5 bar rear, 1.8 bar front?

Oetker, what did you use for corrosion protection at the A-pillar on the Rat? If I remember well you mentioned something. Was it a kind of anticorrosion wax?

From the guy that sprayed the car I gor some white grease (enough to do 2 Murena's I think).
I removed the pur/mouse from the A-pillar and roof section as much as possible.
Then I used a spray-gun with a flexible tip to put it in.

The car is very sensitive on Tire pressure.
2.5 rear and 1.8 front is OK and if you have to soft side wall rear tires 2.7 will help a bit in a fast corner.

Ok, thanks.

Fortunately I did not have any corrosion problems on A-pillars, but I am thinking on some preventive maintenance.

Is it possible to disassamble the clock (which is on the dashboard)?
Lighting works but the clockwork does not...

I have no pics of that but you can get every part of.
First I would measure the backup tension is there if it is not running.
I placed a digital one from renault using the original surround of the old one.


Maybe you can use a Clio clock for the interns, but I need to find out myself.

Yes it's new.
They are from a Talbot Horizon
The lenses are different but the inner stuf is the same.
They are from Frankini.

Earlier I was looking for a spare set of Horizon taillights but it is not easy to find here. Only some second hand ones in bad shape, broken clips, etc.
Hopefully the mastic tape will solve my problems...
Today I removed the taillights. Now I am waiting for the tape...

There was also new rubber provided with lights but still leaking.
The backplate from the Murena is thin and mis-form easy.
I still needed a bunch of kit and also some self tapping screws to adjust all in line.
The old ones will do fine
My goal was to not do these things with the new Horizon lights but then it's still a mess because there is some free space at the sides and it can move a bit from left to right. (few mm)

If you search Horizon lights, they are for sale here.

Thanks for the link, but now I do not want to spend more money on spares. It would be good to collect some rare spares, but my budget is getting exhausted...

I managed to save my rear lenses by polishing so now taillights are quite ok.

My car is still waiting for a long fast ride to clean the engine internally, after the lot of short engine 'tests'...

Now it starts easily with full choke and untouched gaspedal at first attempt. Then it can be started only with half choke and full gas....
Is it normal?

If the engine is warm/hot you need full throttle no choke.
It has something to do with airlock in the fuelsystem.
Dont know exactly but it needs longer turnover to start after a stop and engine still warm.
My 1.6 has the same, it seems normal to me.

After a long silence, today my car passed the MOT. Smiley
Unfortunately I did not have enough time this year for my car. I was very busy with my job, other problems and I had to prepare for my Swedish language exam.
It will take one or two weeks to get the registration plate, then test drives starts.
The carburettor is still not perfect... Sad
