    DASH JUMP!

    Hi all,

    I know the dash in the 205 wasn't the most sturdy piece of interior design so I was happy 2 put up with the rattles until it developed a serious case of dash jump! (read: rattles are starting to piss me off)

    Had anyone taken the dash off and re-installed it? And in the process were you able to eliminate the case of dash jump you may have had??

    All feed back is appreciated and stories of dash jump maybe included.

    So if i get in there Jim and put some of those screws in u reckon the dash jump will go?

    What about the plastic joins etc... has anyone sealed those to get rid of the interior rattles??

    I once tried to take mine apart when trying to get to the clock... *tried*

    I gave up when I started to realise how complex/fragile it was. However I did get around to using some silcone spray around some of the contact points of the plastic.

    If you plan on making a weekend of it, get a can a of silicone spray and many rolls of decent double sided tape. You'll get rid of many squeaks and rattles.

    It's an easy job if you pull the windscreen out! There's a bolt in the centre, next to the screen, that requires a 1/4" knuckle joint drive. There's another two under the windscreen wipers (engine bay side), and two more under the dash, attaching to the A pillar.

    Thanks Vik & Peter I CBF'd doing all that at home (and haven't got the time) so....

    I've just booked it in to the mechanic for a day this Tuesday. He should enjoy himself doing dash rattle repairs instead of the usual odd request I give him.

    Peter, I'm getting a new cam to grind (mine's mild but not that lumpy) have you got any recomendations for lift and duration that I can pass on 2 the guys??

    How much compression do you have? I'd need to know that first. Camshaft duration and compression are linked.

    If it's a std. 75kW engine from a S1 or S2, with 8.4:1 CR, it's a useless and expensive exercise just swapping the camshaft. You need 9.5:1 minimum.

    I'm happy to offer a fully reco. head, fitted with reground cam and adjustable pulley, on an exchange basis if you're interested.
