You say its a 95? is it carb fed or injected? Which type of engine?

Sorry Tim,

Can't comment specifically as I don't know the diesel lumps but if the timing belt has broken then the chances are you are going to have some mangled valves in there, esp. since diesels are significantly higher compression than petrol.

Best thing is to whip the head off and have a look. The next thing to do is make sure you keep up with the maintainance in the future :blink:

As he said. Basically the lower wishbones, which just die after a couple of years. Should cost around 10-20 each side from your local motor factors and a dobble to swap over.

Hi Winston.

Its not a job I've ever done my self but really shouldn't pose you any problems.

Its a simple swap the wires from one unit to the other, unbolt the old bolt in the new and adjust......
