Pump Connections

Post by batso »

Hi guys

I've just replaced the parcel shelf ram (the old one was leaking like a MF), now I have a problem with the parcel shelf not operating.

Roof will fold, but the boot lid remains open.


Possiblity 1 - The new ram is cr@p.

Possiblility 2 - I've connected the hydraulic pipes wrong way around.

So I can eliminate Possibility #2, can anyone please tell me which pump outlet goes to which ram inlet/outlet?



It was an interesting hour or so, with the shelf up, it wouldn't fold away even with the pump pressure valve open. Trying to pull out the ram with the shelf up and the roof folded, was a bit of a challenge. I'd rather confirm the inlet/outlets before i try that again.

All good, worked it all out.

The little lever that the roof trips when stowed, wasnt being pushed far enough to tell the system that it can proceed.

The cluster of zip ties and sh1t that I removed were obviously there for a reason!!
