Renault 18 rear light wanted

Recommended Posts

Been away for a few days got back Thursday so Friday morning I ripped the head and waterpump off.Took the head in to be skimmed,15 thou :shock: .Must've got quite hot then.All back together now but the heater blows cold.Judging by the brown colour of the water that came out I suspect the heater matrix to be blocked with radweld.

The rear lights have SEIMA stamped on them (no doubt not common then)

well done

find best cure for blocked matrix is industrial descaler called scale free available in 5 litres from cleaning companies

diconnect heater pipes from engine then raise both above matrix using bungees or wire etc insert funell and pour in 1 litre scale free using gloves leave 1 hr after wards gently !!!!use airline to agitate not blast then leave 10 mins b4 flushing with hose both ways

 

may have matrix and quite alot of other stuff hidden away so will look for lens if you reply

 

by the way NB willl drag 18 est towbar out and had you asked 18 est back lights are on the shelf at my workshop

Thank's for the advice mr-reno.I was thinking of ramming some caustic soda down there but that might be a little harsh.I've got some Cleanezee descaler so will try that first.

Still looking for a rear lens if you happen across one.
