I forgot, I did the same with the part near the windshield that had a few small spots of rust, but I don't have a photo

As I said the car had 2 scratchs on the front bumper and when I washed my car with a Karcher I first damaged the varnish of the front fender and in an other time the paint of the front bumper. :cry:
As I couldn't accept this on such beautiful car, I decided to make repaint this parts because It is to difficult for me to do it perfectly.

Some pictures before

But stupidly I forgot to tell the painter to paint the mirror shell :cry: !!! It will be for a next time or never...

Still not many scratches for such an old car. Overall it's in a very good condition. My black Mk1 Vitesse is a rolling restoration, one thing at the time but mechanically and when it comes to body work. Fortunately mine is very undented and straight so that is good.

I think yours is very nice Lodein, a real jem!

As I said in this post :
http://rover800.info/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 40#p156340

The journalist like the handling of the manual gearbox of the Rover 825.

This is for me a bad point on my car, and I don't know if it is my car who has a problem (It is old) or if it comes from me (and I am older than my car !!! ) or if it is the Rover 800 manual gearbox who has a problem.
I'l will explain my problem :
To put or output the 1st or 2nd or 3rd gear there is no problem, but when I want to output the 5th, it is very difficult. It takes me 3 or 4 times more time than the other gears and demands more efforts. For the 4th speed is not as the 5th which is the worse, but it is not as the 3 first one.

Do you have any idea about this ?

"Unfortunately" my five speed box in my 827 is very smooth. It is actually just like my newer Accord with a six speed super smooth box. So, it sounds like there is a problem.

I have very little knowledge on what the problem could be though! Sorry.

Thank you Manalishi for this information, and it is what I think.

So now does anyone have any idea what the problem is ?
Maybe it would be better to open a specific post for this ?

Do you know if the gearbox has ever been out of the car Lodein? Sometimes slight misalignment can occur when refitting the gearbox selector mechanism.

Alternatively the selector mechanism (between the shift lever in the cabin and the gearbox) has been known to wear, particularly on the bushes and a common repair is to replace one of the bushes with a universal joint that is usually taken from a spare steering column i believe as they are the right diameter.

I think there's a post/thread on it somewhere, i'll try to find it for you.
Cheers,
Dave

That's the thread, quite a lot of input using various methods from other members besides the original post. Gives you several options after inspecting to decide how to approach yours.

Also worth checking the hydraulics on your clutch and possibly bleeding them. The clutch uses the brake hydraulic fluid so if the brake fluid has ever run low, air could easly enter the clutch hydraulics too.
Cheers,
Dave

When we changed the clutch slave cylinder, we changed the brake hydraulic fluid and we made a purge, so normally it is good, but I will look it is easy and "it eat no bread"*

I am sure that they never toot off the gearbox, but as I know the last owner, I'll ask him

If the box hasn't been out then i'd definitely look at the selector mechanism and clutch. :wink: :D

So I read in détail the post, and I look at my car and I have not a lot of rotation in this part.

Image

I put out the cutter pin, and I opened it to enlarge it and I put it on. Clearly It is better, no rotation in this parts now.

So I drived my car and if it is better, some times (But very very less than before) I have the same thing, It is difficult to get out the 5th speed ??? (It is possible to get it out, but you need more force to do it than the others, I'am not sure that I am clear)

I'll make an gearbox emptying, It is not a luxe, and It could be only better, and after I'll see...

But if you have another easy idear, I'll take it...
