MG MGF Technical - Engine cover
|How much time do you need to set aside to remove engine cover? |
Got the sticking clutch pedal this morning and wanted to have a gander in my lunch hour...
|That will be your lunch hour.|
Hood up, unclip, tie forward, carpet out, 11 bolts undone ....
reassembly is the reverse of the above (as Haynes used to say).
|Better still. Find a biker at your office and nick some Scottoil. Works a treat!|
|Hmm, Saturday hangover job then... |
|If you have a TF or a MY2000 MGF, then the task is made somewhat trickier due to the speaker box under the T-bar trim... oh, the fun and games! :o/|
When you fold up the rear of the hood, don't rush it and keep an eye on how the plastic window folds. If you get a kink it might crack in the current cold weather.
|"somewhat trickier due to the speaker box under the T-bar trim"|
Tell me about it. Had the engine cover off to change HT leads recently - the first time since putting the Mk11 T-bar and speaker box on my 97 car - and what a performance to get the sound proofing out! Any helpful suggestions?
|Not really Russell - other than thining out the sound deadening material so it's easier to fit?|
|Luckily it's a 97F... Which is greater: the risk of cracking the window or the risk of the clutch pedal assembly going kaput if left untreated?? |
|If treated carefully no risk with the rear window, so that leaves the clutch!|
