I'm 53 and have put over 400k miles on my 87 BMW 535, and I can still drive that car from tankful to tankful without having to even get out and stretch.

Just as a caution, I would start with 10 pounds and see if there's a pressure or coolant loss over an hour. Just because the cap is rated for 20 deosn't mean the system operates there. You may induce...

Or try putting a hairdryer on the temp sensor near the condensor, tricking the ECU into thinking it's hot out? I think there's more than one sensor to trigger HVAC, but that may be enough.

Do you not have button 10? This should lock/unlock all doors. I assumed all D2s would have it but can't say personally.

I bought this kit on Amazon because I can use both sizes but the Rover is the 36mm. The tool with the holes holds the pulley.

Is there no loss of coolant? Forgive my naivete, does the D1 have a vent tube from the top of the radiator to the overflow bottle, and if so, does coolant circulate?

Found this in the Rave and figured I would add the info for future reference. Looks like quite a few places where linkage could freeze up.

You're thinking of it the wrong way round. You might have to discard the 14mm and get a 9/16 but 9/16" is actually 14.28mm so if anything the 14mm wrench would be too small. 9/16" = .5625" and 14mm =...
