Lads, lads, lads.

Firstly, how is the oil gauge operated?

Secondly, and this is aimed at Danny as this was his suggestion, I took the indicator stalk/hazard light cluster apart as I was getting a nasty vibration from it with the hazard light on whilst I was checking the electrics.

The spring was in place but when i prized it apart a few bits fell out, now I can't figure out how it is built back up. Is there even a guide of putting this puzzle back together or is it a guessing game? I may even go as far as buying a second hand replacement to save myself the hassle! Pictures to explain my confusion... (please excuse the size of the images, but i find the bigger the better)

And finally, where the hell are these from?

Standard oil gauge? Single wire with a rubber 90 boot goes onto the oil pressure sender. When up to pressure this earths the lead and this switches off the light. The wire is part of the loom that comes round from behind the coil pack and injectors if memory serves me right! If you don't have this wire let me know and I'll trace it as far as I can and cut mines off for you ;)
Stalks have a look at my guide for the interval wiper mod. It's simple once you figure out where each bit goes but fuck trying to explain it in words lol
Lastly the two bits on the left look like the top hats that hold the radiator onto the slam panel. As for the thing on the right that looks like a manual alternator belt tensioner screw :D

Hope the above helps buddy :thumbsup:

You legend Paul. What a beautiful reply to my dilemma.

So I assume there is oil present in there? I only say this because oil is leaking out of it onto my dials!

I'll have a mooch this weekend and let you know if I have it or not though bud ;)

Ummm... Now jm confused. Are you talking about the red oil warning light or an aftermarket mechanical gauge?

The standard warning light is electric and passes no oil out of the block. A mechanical pressure gauge will have a thin plastic tube carrying oil at engine pressure to the back of the gauge. If the ferrule is twisted and not sealing then you will leak oil onto anything around it.

And you're welcome matey :thumbsup:

Yes I think I will be buying a second hand unit Danny. Fucking baffles me trying to put it back together.

Ye Paul I'm lost now too. I'll post a picture later to show what i mean.
