Well packed with polystyrene on top of these.
So all good,howvere
The kicker is they are different colours. The passengers clealry looks like it’s been shelf worn and was in a more bespoke bag. It’s silver
The driver is utterly mint. It’s Matt light grey.
All adjusters grub screws look to be clear and easily accessible.
Hairdryer amounts of heat.. long Allen key.. grub screws straight out.
Adjuster rocked off by hand..
Passenger side fully depinnned as the pin was in the cap.
drivers. just working on as pin is in the shock.
Edit... two taps of the hammer and out..
Ok tip for others... no part of the grub screw needs to clear the outside edge of the cap. I have just had my biggest worry rethreading the first one I took all the way out. its needs to be damn staright to go back in.
I have put the rubber washer on afterwards over the top. couldn't get it to sit right underneath and t now looks right.
@Rik Perry any guidance on the rubber washer?
Heres a gag... my passgner side pin hole is the perfect point for the ball bearings to pin out of.
My Paassenger was pinned.. if the first point is 1. its pinned 19 clicks up at 20. it goes to 44.
Dabik you may remember me banging on about about mine having different finishes as per yours so it's obviously a 'thing' Interestingly the early ones don't have the rubber O ring.
Bummer on the position of the pin, turn iy upside down and slide it back in so the flat side is against the bearings?
yeah, 100% rem mate.
Very happy all in all. was never expecting anything mint.
Pin is defo a 1st world clio trophy problem.. so we can sort that.
Received a second set today for a friend, brand new, not a scratch still in renault sport packaging from factory with original no frills RS label on the bubble packing. Grub screw not loctited at all! Seems like the cap which has an o'ring at the bottom to be either not loctited or very little glue applied compared to others without the o'ring. I suppose the seller got rid off the battered and scratched ones first. Expect for the latest orders to receive brand new untouched ones.
So I didn’t win then!

well yours match... so happy days ;0
They look brand new in that picture, I cannot see any scratch at all
I still did not check against original trophys but are the mounting holes exactly in the same location compared to the struts? Did any of you checked, I was wondering if camber was same as original.
Will have a good look at mine tonight as I have the best chance of possibly having one of each I guess so far...
I ownt be able to check the car mind... I think I still own it
Why not just leave them pinned for now. Factory setting is perfect, better leaving them sealed.
My other set will stay pinned. These are for sits and giggles.
