So to sumerise My personal opinion is that I would use the flex for the rear as it is larger it gives more movement and is therefore more forgiving. It has the strength and flexibilitly to withstand minoe scrapes with no damage will not crack or break and is easay to fit. The front I would use the black ABS as it can only be described in one word....perfect.

Result !
thanks, the front cap is ABS that i grinded a bit and than give a acetone fume finish, this softens the skin and melts it a bit, giving it a nice shine. The flex part is TPU (same material as cellphone bumpers) this is flexible, there are even more flexible filaments, that wont be neccecary. 'problem'  with flex is that there is no ssmoothen possebility, like there is also not with pet and nylon, layers are visible. If that is not a problem for you than it is a good choice. In my opnion the ABS back covers were also quit good, depending on the shape of the strip. I think no 2 strips are the same, so exact fit will be a problem afterall.

  Be careful as it is a flexible printed circuit board and easily damaged.

I can attest to that. When I removed mine I found that it had been previously damaged.
In the post I mention I also show the repairs I made to the flexible circuit board.

You also have to disconnect the multi-way plug with all the wiring at the back of the panel.  Be careful as it is a flexible printed circuit board and easily damaged.  It is a good idea to remove the screw at the top right inside the instrument cowl, it is one of the ones that holds the heater control panel in place, as it may foul the instrument panel as you pull it forwards.

Hi all i need to remove the instrument cluster has anyone done this and are there any pics?

regards ...

Check my post here: http://www.matrasport.dk/forum/index.php/topic,1504.0.html

There are two clips at the top of the panel. You can see them in the picture in the second entry of my post.
But before you can remove it you have to disconnect the speedometer cable and the clip that holds the trip counter reset-cable in place.
I have done several repairs to the panel itself, the instruments and the clock. Try searching for posts using "Jon Weywadt" as user.

Let us know what you are trying to repair. Perhaps we have a fix.
Regards.
Jon

I have found some variations of play in the 3 bearings on the tripod/spider on the long driveshaft on my 2.2 Murena whilst stripping to install a new gaiter and can.
Does anyone know of a supplier or sourced one of these tripod assemblies or know of any part numbers. Might help if anyone knows if it was a Citroen, Renault or Chrysler/Talbot part.

Picture attached and spec with measurements as accurately as I can (using a digital caliper to measure to 100th mm)
Spec:
A= Number of teeth, splines 25
B= Roller case outer diameter 33.9 mm (poss 34)
C+ Roller case depth 14mm
D= Spider thickness 30.4 to 30.6mm

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to get myself my first Murena. I would prefer a 2.2, but am open for offers.
