The generation game
on: June 14, 2015, 07:39:32 PM
Have you tried removing the side panels? Spent most of this afternoon doing it. 3 types of fasteners coupled with industrial strength Velcro make for an interesting experience. Whatever happened to simplicity?
It'll be easier the 2nd time but in the meantime great material for on of Bruce's shows methinks.

Yup, and loud and continuous was the profanity.

The worst fastener was the cross head screw type as one of them decided just to rotate and not unscrew. Naturally it was one that is almost impossible to get at without major wrist contortions.

I was installing a gear indicator so needed to connect the unit to the diagnostic connector. In themselves the fasteners are a work of art and very clever. The diagram in the owners book is a bit confusing to say the least - if it was a Haynes type explanation and drawing it would be quite straight forward. I managed to muller one of the fittings, luckily not a crucial one.
