Re: light knob removal

Hello all, Thank you very much for the information. I tried to upload the picture but it does not work. Around the knob there is a green plastic ring which obviously should light when lights are turned on - unfortunately it does not now. It has the pull/turn mechanism. My car is 250@GTE #3631. I am ...

light knob removal

Hi,

does anybody know how to remove the black plastic knob of the light switch? I removed the little grub screw but the know resists any attempt to get it off. What does the intake of the plastic knob look like? Is it a screw or just a bolt? Is there a special trick or something?

regards, Martin

Indicator switch - automatic return?

At my 250 GTE the lever for the indicator does not return automatically to the neutral position after I finished the turn of the steering wheel. Is this normal/standard or does my indicator switch need repair?

Regards,

Martin

Spare parts catalogue

Hi,

I was offered a spare parts catalogue for bodyparts (Eur 145.00) and a parts book (Eur 135.00) for my 250 GTE. Does anybody know whether this is something that can be downloaded somewhere or is this of additional value to all the free downloads available?

Regards,

Martin

dip stick of gear box at 250 GTE

Hello, I have changed the oil of the gear box of my 250 GTE and and when I opened the refill plug I found that there is no dip stick. My car has the same chamber for gear box and overdrive, so there is only one refill plug. The plug screw looks the same like the ones at the differential. Shouldn´d t...

Re: different type of grease nipples on the prop shaft?

Aha, the reason with the external supplier of the component sounds very logical. So I will leave them as is and not replace them with button style. One more time thank you very much for the information John!
