    Default DS23 turning high beam lights

    I brought my DS23 over 12 months ago and now it is already for its RWC
    I think this is probably not needed for the RWC but when i got the car the rod from the steering rack
    The the turning lights was disconnected i found it in a box of spares that came with the car, now i know why
    Ive put it back on but when you turn it gets knocked off by the air filter my car is EFI so it have the air filter down the Side of the right wing. Are there different rods for this?

    It should work with EFI. Try turning the long rod around so the step clears the steering link. If you mount it the wrong way, it catches every time you run the wheel towards full lock. It can look fine when fitted with wheels pointing ahead.

    Thanks David,

    Ive turned it around and yes a better fit but the mane problem was the trumpet on the airfilter was in the way
    Ive managed to to probably where it supposed to be lets see how it goes.
    Only other thing is that the righthand one points a little to ther center and i have run out of adjustment.

    Try turning the filter assembly to move the trumpet away from the linkage. Poor photo, but it should sit like this:

    Also note the bellcrank and cables.

    Hello, you are not alone! All the straight lengths should be parallel to each other, not bent like in your picture.

    I repaired mine using a small turnbuckle (the thing to tighten fence wire). I cut off the hooks from the turnbuckle and silver soldered the left and and right threaded rods to some mild steel rod that I bent to shape.

    I'm too mean to buy a whole kit from Der Franzose...
