Large dollops of grease applied around the adjuster, cleaned off and reapplied when needed seem to stop the crap getting in.So after thinking about this overnight ..
My thought is that the detent balls and springs might have seized in place .. I've seen this on several pinned dampers that have never been adjusted and on stripping for de pinning its all a mess in there ..
Not me buddy... I've not tried that on mine. That said, I have trouble remembering... old age and the fact the Sachs have been off the car for so long! I took them off in August 2014 due to a knackered damper (see video) and shortly after the car went off the road to have the engine / gearbox rebuild. As you know, I've not yet got the car back.I have see pictures of damper adjusters wrapped in self sealing tape to protect the adjuster from crud .. I think MarkR and Sharky do that....
Think i'll get these wrapped up as suggested further up once I get them sorted. And yes, Mark Fish springsIt's a good idea to leave the pin inserted but not pushed all the way home, an unplugged hole is going to be an easy point of access for crud.
Are those Mark Fish springs?
