I bought this for 99p a few weeks ago!
The cord hook repairs are simply fantastic
The bag has a slight tear sadly
Looked clean from the drivers seat
2 new belts
Hose is lovely
Took it to my mums one lunchtime
and did a quick video
Not a valid youtube URL
Works well! It then went back into the car for a further week, and today I bought it in. One of the big issues is that the handle lock doesn't work, a common issue, which makes storing it annoying.
The top cord hook is interesting, not seen one like this before
and the handle bail is removed with 4 screws
Circlip comes off the end of the large pin that goes through the handle assembly
The plate that moves with the pedal to push the locking bracket out the way comes off first
The main pin gets knocked through, and it and the spring removed
2nd circlip on the smaller pin removed next
I gave everything a clean off. Main pin is a bit worn
All of this was just to clean the mechanism. The main actual issue is this
I made a new step with a pair of snips on one side, but the other side is thicker, so I'll grab a Hacksaw in the future and profile 2 nice new steps
Mvacs - These are those random springs I sent you, they may be held in with a little pin through the chassis, the 1334 is... peel the bumper down to check on the corners
The last thing I did was replace the belt
The old one was not streched, but has lost it's elasticity a bit, the new belt transformed it!
Old belt was genuine at least
Plug was nice and old too
That'll do for now, it works much better now!
