Official Rover Loose Leaf Wksp Manual

#1 Post by Mr Teddy Bear » Tue Jun 25, 2013 5:34 pm

Thanks to a conversation at the Bristol Classic I now have in my possession [on behalf of the club] a loose leaf copy of the work shop manual.

This covers the following engines;
1.4 K8
1.4 K16
1.6 S/DOHC
2.0 T16

Engine Management Systems:
PGM FI
MEMS-SPi, MPi

Manual G/Bx 1.4/1.6/2.0

It also covers the body in a lot more detail than Haines goes into

Should Club Members require photo copies of particular sections, then I will copy and post out. You need to have a blue forum name for this needless to say!

Thank you.

Hi

That workshop manual sounds excellent, how many pages are in PG MFi section and how many in the 216DOHC section.

Also how do I turn blue to get access

Cheers

Hi,
regarding turning blue you need to pm Tom Pinney and get him to talk to Smithy, she runs the website.

Regarding the manual I will come back on that.

I too have an original Rover WSM which I bought in the early 1990s. The one I have is AKM 6365 (3rd Edition) dated 1991. This was for our 1990 214 GSi.

I use it occasionally, but most often use the Haynes manual as I prefer the photos and there are quite a lot of tips about doing the job. I agree, the Rover manual is better for some of the body assemblies. A looming job is the replacement of the headlining which has perished and come adrift at the back. Haynes is not helpful, saying it is difficult and best to go to the Rover dealer. At least the Rover manual gives a stage by stage list of what you need to do to get the headlining out - takes two pages!

Thought i'd post this here (perhaps a link could be added to the first post on this thread for others to find it easier.

A downloadable copy of the official Rover Electrical Fault Finding manual - very useful!

Does anyone know of a detailed description of the power roof? The linkages on one side of mine have pretty much all come apart. I might be able to fix the problem without any description by comparing it with the other side, but an exploded diagram would help no end. Thanks.

Sir Enery is talking about the power cabby roof I believe. I will have a look later on.

As implied I meant the electric over hydraulic folding cabby roof.

Was a detailed description of the power roof (Cabrio) found?

The drivers side if mine is all over the place. The seal nearest the boot doesn't seem to be far enough out and so the rear window doesn't close properly. When I looked today the drivers side only had one of the 3 bolts in and that was loose! There seems to be quite a bit of adjustment on the main mounting plate as well as an adjustable tie rod either side but I am getting nowhere with trial and error *laughs*.

Thanks.
