The brake assist unit and master are different to the RHD models, LHD are way easier to work on as both units are in the engine bay and the master is from memory the same size as the 16v models so the 22mm where as the Bosch RHD is 23.8, short and stubby.

what do you mean by offer up? I'm sorry - English is not my first language.

I’m about to prepare the radiator shroud. There are some flappy tin work on it, and some rubber flaps to rivet on, I think. At least I have a bag of rubber pieces…. Does anyone have a picture of how it all goes together?

Perhaps these photos will help give you a guide - forgive my first attempts at peening rivets...

Thanks, now on to something new:

This doesn’t look right? The pipe is pointing upwards where the angle hose to the block goes. And the bracket is pinched against the radiator.

You've basically got it bolted to the upper ac mounting bolts

It needs bolting to the 2 lower ac securing bolts

The upper bolts have loose nuts that need to be held in place while threading the bolts.

The lower however, are apparently impossible to get started on the thread. I hope there are no loose nuts behind there…

Finally got the bolts on, but now I can’t get the belt back on. Is it possible to reach the tensioner with the engine in place?

You'll need to make a special tool to reach the 8mm bolt in the centre of the pulley, mine is a cut down 8mm allen tool 10mm long welded to a flat bar which is perfect to slide down the side of the a/c compressor, slacked off the 6mm adjuster so you can refit the belt and then tension and lock off the 8mm.

Got the tool made. On the first attempt my tool broke, so I had to add som welds for strength. Finally I got the tensioner loose and the belt installed.

Yes it's needs to be strong, especially when owners use thread lock rolleyes

The black one on the left is attached to the back of the battery tray. The other black one next to it is to hold the battery in place.

The black one in the center is from one of the front struts and holds the brake lines / ABS sensor cable in place.
The black one on the right attaches under the car to the gearbox to cover the bottom of the flywheel.

Not sure but the one in the bottom left looks like it either holds the horns in place or is next to the power steering fluid container and bolts to the chassis.

Yo friends! I was told this bracket goes on the back of the battery tray, but obviously not like this?

I’m correct in my assumption that this is wrong? In that case, what is the correct way?

As you've got it, nuts from the front with the plate at the rear.
