I got my Daimler 250 about 5 months ago and I’m slowly getting to know him.
Although he’s basically sound (I hope) he hasn’t had much use in the last 5 years. Things are loosening up now he’s getting more use and some faults have even cured themselves but although some jobs which might relate to that have been done there are still lots to do.
I can’t move the Vent lever much (the grille lifts about 3mm and although I can get a grip on it I’ve pulled quite hard and it won’t move much further. I don’t want to break anything!
Also the Screen/Car lever doesn’t move at all.
I guess they are rusted up, although there is no evidence of this from the outside, but how do I get to them?
I can see some bolt heads underneath the black panel that holds the switches & gauges but I’m afraid that if I undo these and pull the panel far enough forward to get inside, all those 50-year-old, stiff & fragile wires will be very unhappy and the electrical gremlins will be let out of their cages.
