Bergen, Norway says hi !

Postby HansNOR » 30 Dec 2015, 22:22

Hi there. I'm Hans from Bergen in western Norway and at the moment i'm looking out the window and see what I've seen some 280 days this year ...... rain .
I have a liking for Citroen .. preferably with hydraulics and some quirky traits .. but i must admit its been a few years since i last laid on my back in the rain in some random parking lot replacing
hydraulics :) I'm quite certain I have said never again to Citroen with LHM ... but never the less, now I am back to it .

The car itself and probably more about me will be told in a blog on this forum. Think that is a good feature as it serves as a "notebook".

wish me luck as I'm allready battling the green leak ... ;)

Welcome from a fellow Activa owner/lover :D

I've posted in your other thread on the subject of the leaking electrovalve, I hope it'll be useful...

Yes it is, just tell the admins what you'd like it changed to and they can do the necessary :)

Alisdair... have you got a template for those cuts needed? Thinking about swapping hoses on the rear ram and might come in useful.

Maybe a little small but you can get the tools/hand in there, I may very well enlarge (width) it at some time if I need to and just go to a scrap yard/make a new cover.

The S2 floor is redesigned btw

I saw this once and I totally forgot about this. BRILLIANT! Really a PITA to get some work done without removing the subframe. Must remember to make this mod in my V6. Btw. what is that yellow stuff on the hydractive block? Grease?

Electrical contact water proofing spray wax, I am testing it to see how it does in preventing Aluminium corrosion at the electro-valve joint
