Thanks Gibbo I will (may) remember that. I have never had occasion to buy one, perhaps a second hand original would be better.

Morning all,

Thanks for the replies. Not sure about the priming bulb but will investigate when slave cylinder replaced.

Think my 306 had an "eBay special" priming bulb and never went wrong - must have landed lucky back then as didn't perish for me.

New slave cylinder ordered last night from Autodoc - "no parts found" on GSF,
out of stock and twice the price at Eurocarparts (£140 Vs £67 from Autodoc) - both Valeo branded (usual unhelpful lack of specifics on Euro's site) so about 2 weeks till that lands.

Just making a start on stripping down to get the box off. This (2009) is about the newest thing I've owned/worked on - nice how stuff routinely "just unscrews" :-D
