R19 compatible parts into an R5 ??
« on: 12:27, Wed 12 August 2009 »
A friend is taking his series one R19 to be scrapped into razor blades....before it goes i would like to find out if there are any parts on it that can go straight into my R5 spares box....hubs? brakes?  ...anything ??
Such a waste to see it all go.

What model?

Might have larger brake discs, leather interior?

I've fitted complete front end of Clio I on my R5.. ..subframe, arms, hubs, suspensuion and so on and it fits with small modifications (I had to drill one new hole in subframe). As R19 parts and Clio parts are almost the same, I'd say they fit to R5 but you have to know that Clio front end is aprox 4cm wider than R5, R19 is even 3 or 4cm wider than Clio :-)

Hi ,
depending on the engine code your friend has on his R19 (engine C or E family ) you can take the starter motor , alternator , some parts of the gearbox or the complete gearbox , the radiator , the auxiliary drive belt,probably the brake calipers ( check if the one your friend has are of girling or bendix type ) , bulbs or small parts like that . I think that's all .
Cheers

Hi ,
I thought again about this :
so on the gear lever you can take the part for the reverse gear ( the part you lift ) , the clutch cable ( but not sure , I think there are some of different length ) , probably the clutch kit .
The crankshaft but only if you have an engine of C type .
you can take the coil  and the TDC sensor on the condition the ignition is not of old generation .
You can take the thermostat , and the radiator switch but it's far better to fit some new . Probably , since you're in Australia you may have a ''hot country '' radiator ( bigger than the one we can find over here ).
The electric engines for the windscreen wiper .
The electric fan for the heating system
And the last part is the oil filler cap .
To sum up , these parts are most of the time compatible between the R11 , R9 , Express , and some Clios  .
Cheers .
