    hi john,
    i need your help again, please!!
    the old 90 is throwing up a fault on the dash which looks like ( ! ) - no, it's not someone's arse crack - the book tells me that it's a brake or power steering problem..

    the brake pedal is great and there's no fluid loss in the reservoir. however, the power steering reservoir has a problem - there is a sensor (of course there bloody well is!!) which attaches to the green lid of the reservoir. when you unscrew the lid and lift it away, there is a central plastic spindle that should be attached to the inside of the green lid (which must connect with the sensor) that is about 2-3" long with what looks like a small white plastic float on the other end, the sinks into the power steering fluid.

    now, housed around this spindle should be a black spring that has what looks like a brass retaining plate, presumably to keep the whole assembly together when you lift the green lid off to check the fluid level.

    do you have the complete green lid and spindle spring plate assembly available to sell me? i only just got gene back from JL Engineering just now after james finding the correct plugs to attach his computer to (tucked behind the driver's side kick plate!), it's running better than ever, and was thinking on the drive home "i wonder what you'll do to me next, you gene hunt bastard of a car!"


    anyhoo, sorry for the rant!!
