These were just dangling loose inside, any ideas how they are to be fitted together...?



You can place the ring at the end of the wire into the socket (take care to have the lights switched off, otherwise it may cost you a fuse) and then you can place the bulb. The ring has to fall around the central contact in the socket without touching it.

Yes, I know where it goes, but there seem to be something with the bend on the eyelet wire. When inserted, the two rubber "gaskets" the one on the picture and the other on the indicatorlens are supposed to fit together tightly, this is not possible with the shape of this one now.....

So, could anybody supply a picture of them mounted together, or the parts looking the way they should....?

And worse still, I can't find that missing wire in Simon's catalogue either.... Makes me kind of wondering if I should buy some other bulbholder.....

Just waiting for a load of parts from Simon now, are there any precautions that should be taken concerning torsion bars, springs etc?

All that is needed....

Stabilazer, shocks etc

Stabilizer and front shocks are straigt forward jobs.
No special knowledge needed.
For stabilizer links nut tension look at the workshop manual (you have one ? most  of this things are described very well).
If you want to get rear shocks out you need to get the tension out the springs before getting them of.

the torsion bars: I would leave them in place the power of the torsion bars are very high, so take care if you go ahead and dismantle them.

Is there sufficent info in the manual to be able to dismount and remount the torsion bars? Anybody know what part of the manual that is about suspension?

Torsion bars do not have a lot of "travel" (twisting) to do. I plan on taking mine off at some point, to clear rust from the mounting bar under the seats. I should think that, with the front lifted on stands and the front wheels hanging loose and off the ground, unscrewing the tension bolts will completely remove all tension. If not, I would suopport the lower arm with a jack, disconnect the lower steering joint from the arm and use the jack to lower it until tension was gone.
Rust on the splines will probably be the toughest challenge to getting them off the car.

I couldn't find anything in my manual in the stabilasor link nut tension, seems like some pages missing. Could anybody please supply some info? On my old Cavalier/Ascona there was just an overall length of the strutt to achive correct tension.
