Re: brake bleeding again

The brakes should be adjusted up before starting. I totally agree, this has to be done first. I renewed the whole brake system on my MM and was puzzled why the brake pedal was low even after doing a small adjustment. Then I realised the manual states the brake adjusters have to be adjusted so the s...

Re: Rear Door Window Replacement

Hi Tes 1

I just recently completed the assembly of my rear doors, you need to have the glass in the door cavity before installing the sealing strips. Unbolt everything relevant for the window to go below the sealing strips, when installed, guide the glass up to connect the regulator.

You'll need a gasket set for sure, but the manual for any four stroke petrol engine will give you the...
