    20100521_GTX_0003.JPGWe all love this mythical and popular car, because we sailed in one being childrens, because someone in the family had one or just because it always made us want it... because it's endearing, whatever we say.
    Its great success is certainly due to the fact that with a simple mechanics, with little or no electronics, it is easy to maintain by yourself without expensive tools, without forgetting that the parts are not expensive and always easy to find. Even today, for some homes, students and people with "little budget", it is a source of great comfort at a lower price: far from car loans and garage mechanics, which are becoming more and more inaccessible. The small engines models (the most common) are very robust and still consume very little, sometimes less than recent "equivalent" cars, which makes it by definition just as ecological, if not even more by the simple fact that we we always use it instead of buying new ones ... At the level of the official technical control, benefiting from its "seniority", it does not undergo the modern standards much too restrictive, the tranquility is assured.
    Today it is still an interesting car for everyday use, especially and clearly from an economic point of view.
    Collectors are also beginning to take an interest in this 30-year-old "granny": restoration, maintenance or refurbishment, repairs, etc ... make it possible to find "newer than new" models for the pleasure of the eyes and to see this French heritage thus safeguarded.
    We have created this community to bring together all those who are interested and who wish to take part in this adventure to preserve their Renault Super 5, whether by maintenance, repair or restoration: you will find here all useful information and tips on these topics.

    To be able to ask questions and share your interest, all you have to do is register and present yourself properly!
    You do not have to have a Super 5: an interest in auto mechanics is enough

oui, il est vrai aussi qu'au départ je voulais le refaire "en entier", mais c'était juste pour la beauté du geste (et pour apprendre), pas pour réparer sans certitudes... 😕

La semaine dernière j'ai installé enfin un levier neuf double sur la ventilation de ma GTX, imprimé en SLS (celui de la boutique du forum) : il va au poil !



...et aujourd'hui j'ai enfin installé le clip du TDB côté droit, imprimé en SLS Nylon imprégné de verre. Je n'ai pas pris de photo car il faisait trop sombre, mais il va au poil aussi ! 👌

il y a 3 minutes, Super5GL1986 a dit :

Ça rend super bien!

oui, et encore sur la photo je trouve que ça fait un peu "gris", sans doute à cause du flash, mais le levier est bel et bien noir...

La pièce est « fichée » dans son axe? Je veux dire par là que pour l’enlever il n’y a qu’à tirer dessus?

oui, il suffit de tirer dessus pour le sortir. Par contre pour le remettre il y a une sorte de "languette" métallique qu'il faut réinsérer au milieu de l'axe du levier (il a une fente spécialement prévue à cet effet) qui peut être embêtante à garder centrée pour y insérer le nouveau levier... Ce que j'ai trouvé de mieux c'est d'enlever le levier dans une position où le petit "rectangle" à l'intérieur de l'axe est le plus vertical possible, comme ça la languette a plutôt tendance à rester débout que de tomber vers le bas...

Ca a peut-être l'air compliqué dit comme ça, mais en pratique ce n'est pas difficile, faut juste faire gaffe à cette languette et pas enfoncer le levier comme un bourrin sans regarder ce que tu fais... ;)
