hi all, trying to return my 5 to it's origional ride height. took the rear shocks off and give the spline a good soak in wd40, tryed to remove the bar with a similar remove tool. didnt budge one bit, even give it a heat up (later reading i wasnt meant to), anyone got any ideas on how to get it out?

Any tips would be good

Renault 5 GT Turbo / silly sills!
« on: 22:36, Sun 07 November 2010 »
yo, started on the sills and jacking points last weekend due to extreme rust! had a bit of a problem with the seam that comes off the floorpan, this also had alot of rust, so we had to replace it with some solid 2mm steel, this gave us something solid to weld to, going well. a slow progress as i can only work on it of a sunday due to work, coming along well.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Turbo problems..
« on: 18:01, Fri 24 September 2010 »
hey, as im a new r5 gtt owner, i dont really know much about the turbo problems, any chance of someone updating me on there knowledge? its puffing blue smoke :/ ive read that the blue smoke either means its already gone or..its on its way out, when i drove it last, the turbo wasnt kicking in at all, when i checked it one of the blowoff pipes was abit loose, that still didnt solve the problem.

any help will be much appreciated
