5a dashboards

Post by speedy555 » Tue Sep 17, 2019 7:01 pm

Am I losing the plot or are there 2 slightly different dashboards for a 5a? Carcass or fascia? 2 different steering columns???
Thanks.

Thanks. My whole steering column seems to be a good inch or more too far left.

It was the very last batch IIRC that caused problems, the ignition switch was different so the key and lock came off the column in a different position so the dashboard was moulded differently.
Been a long time since came across it.

Don`t know if Reliant moved the column to try get round it :?:
