  2. 164 24v oil cooler pipe

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    The oil cooler pipes on my 1994 3.0 164 24v weep oil from where the rubber sections join with the steel. By chance, have been given a spare pair of pipes, with oil cooler fitted from a raced 164. The rubber on these pipes looks quite new but I can see that because the stainless braiding has been...
  3. 164 EGR pipe permanent removal

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)

  6. 164 condensor nut filled thread

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    This is a little odd. Took the air-con condensor off a series 2 164 today. I didn't notice while undoing the lower pipe (tight as anything) but the nut and joint were coming off at an angle. The result is aluminium from the old condensor joint has filled the thread in the steel nut. The nut...
