480 pictures of parts you tend not to see.

Post by glasgowjim » Sun Dec 27, 2009 10:21 pm

Quite often the discouraging part of starting a job on a 480 for the first time is not being able to see what it looks like clearly. So when I have been stripping a car down I have taken a few photographs of different parts on the car. It is not a how to but hopefully make things easier when you come to do any maintenance for the first time.

Wow! Good idea! I know from my experiences, that it's much easier to get yourself to work when you know what to expect there. gives you more courage!

I have some pics. Could have more but lack of time/will to take photo during process.. Will document more in the future.


here are from my doors renewal:

Image
this is how it looks under right mudguard (the car is without aircon. 480s with pushbutton aircon controls have white 4ballsmergedtogether outher space alien larva lookalike canister for vacuum near door hinges.)

Image
This is right door latch mechanism. About the sticks:
Left: to outer door handle
Right: to locking mech - note the central lock motor at bottom
behind right - not installed - in pic you can see it's plastic eye: to inner handle
the blue part is open/closed switch

Image
Door stopper - this one gives noise if not greased. and will produce play if worn out. but if the door craks when opening/closing, than the nailed pin on the other side of stopper is worn out.
The oval hole under it si for cabling.

Image
Keylock at it's full renewed glitter! Two switces are seen - lock and unlock. There's the eye at the right side of white plastic - goes to latch mechanism.

Removing your dashboard/fascia the complete thing !!!!

the fascia is held on by two bolts at either end of the dash under the plastic plate at the door PLUS there are ALSO 4 small bolts here

Image

Image
you can see the far left one still has a piece of plastic in it :wink:

the black plastic heater casing you see is held on by the 2 bolts PLUS 2 more nuts accessed from the engine compartment.
Image
from the engine compartment one NUT is located on the bulkhead heat shield the other NUT above the twin heater pipes.

See for the speed sensor, is it located on the same place for a 2.0ltr auto?

I want to put mines back in after getting it fixed ( I hope) as it's had exposed wiring and has been patched up with some insulating tape -fingers crossed it sorts it.

The sensor goes in the hole above the output shaft and is secured by a little bracket that is held in by an M8 cap screw into a hole directly above it (6mm A/F). If you can zoom in you might just see part of the tapped hole peeking out above the turbo oil return pipe in the first picture. A pig of a thing to try and do without at least removing the driveshaft.
