That %&%(^()*) Activa
I was right, it would not be long before more trouble
She goes a treat, drives like an Activa should and all, in all she's a good 'un...
Noticed a small pubble of LHM under her this evening, in the vicinity of the front ram
Nope, not the ram. That's bone dry
The source of the leak was somewhat higher up. It looked for all the world like the anti-sink valve had gone
But no, nothing so easy as that. I had the LHM reservoir off to have a look as I could not see from under and found a split leakage return pipe. A split on one of the moulded rubber pipes that take leakage from the front struts up to the reservoir.
It's going to be a fun job fixing that as access is not terribly good. The rubber, as usual, had split where it joins the metal pipe.
Here's where it is, by the green arrow. Other LHM in the picture is from where I removed the reservoir.
And here was I desperately trying to have a rest and a break from incessant spannering and Xantias.. Grrrr
I'm not happy....
As I say though, apart from that, she's going well...
