My 1987 900 Aero is a RHD UK spec version. Whilst running through the Bentley Cruise Control (CC) checks on Sunday (CC not functioning) I discovered the linkage to the slave(?) cylinder from the pedal on the passenger side of the car is very loose. Its quite competent, but this play could potentially mess up the settings, esp. electrical, of the CC pedal switch. i.e. if I accidentally knocked the pedal up, it could knock the pedal switch out and disable CC. The pedal switches are a git to get at, as I had to remove the knee board. Question is, can the linking "u" connector on the slave cylinder be replaced easily? It seems to be all one piece or am I missing something here? should there be some play? Bottom line is my CC stalk is not functioning correctly anyway but I can replace that and everything else seems to work, although there seems to be no test for the CC module itself, other than check supply and ground. I guess if everything else is functioning and it still doesn't work it must be the module. Thanks Al P.S.Go my JT 61 K exhaust from Elkparts today, whoooeee it's a monster! Can't wait to get it fitted!
