The old OEM armrest with the phone which I replaced for a new one (without the phone).
It was replaced with a new cream colored vinyl armrest from Aliexpress. Looks like new!
I noticed some strange behaviour when lifting the throttle and decided to service the CBV aka Compressor Bypass Valve. I was right, car drives a lot better after replacing it with a fresh CBV / DV (Diverter Valve).
I went with an aftermarket TRITDT K5T09671.
As the car is about 21 years old, it was about time the fuel pump was renewed. A fuel pump gets old and will be unable to deliver the desired fuel pressure when needed. This will have a big impact on the performance as you might imagine. It took me quite some time as the retaining ring was stuck, like real stuck…
I was finally able to prise it of, but needed to perform some cleaning before putting in the new pump. But it was worth it!
Fresh new pump!
Bought myself a “new” 14 inch set (thanks Marktplaats.nl 🙂 ) and fitted them off course. I weighed the wheels to see the difference, funny to see how there is quite a difference between de Uniroyal RainExpert 2 & Barum Brilliantis tyres.
The 14inch steel wheel + Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons tyres weighed less than expected.
