This is the power steering cooling loop pipe which runs under the car on 205 GTI models equipped with PAS. The originals are prone to rust due to their location.
Using an original we have re-manufactured them using a CNC tube bender, then a custom jig has been made to manipulate the final bend. Using CNC technology ensures their complicated shape is repeatedly replicated accurately.
Replaces standard rubber joints and mounts on all the mounting points of a rear beam.
Fitting this kit means the rear beam is rigidly attached to the chassis. Giving a more predictable rear end under heavy cornering and more control during lift off over steer.
Front flexible joints are replaced by acetal bushes (4 in the kit) while rear rubber “sandwich” mounts are replaced with “aircraft spec” quality aluminium blocks with offset studs (2 in the kit). This kit is an evolution and improved fit version of our original BBM-SA-R kit. Unlike standard items, our uprated items will not wear out!
This modification is a real benefit to a track orientated 205/309. It will also benefit a road car with respect to handling characteristics but at an expense of a slight increase in road noise experienced in the cabin.
Joints in the original gearchange rod setup contain plastic bushes that wear over time, making the gearchange very unprecise and leading to rods popping off and leaving you stranded on a side of the road or track. Our rods are steel-jointed with securing clips that cures both issues.
