BMC Service Bulletin - Rear Spring (Sprite AN5 & MKIII)

Attached is an original service bulletin from BMC Australia. The text of the bulletin is as follows.


REAR SPRING NOISE


Noise from the rear springs may be caused by:

  1. The rear spring eye fouling the axle bracket and/or

  2. interleaf friction.

These conditions may be rectified as follows:


Spring Eye fouling axle bracket.


Remove shackle pins (see W/S Manual Section H6). Centralise bush in spring eye and fit a fibre washer AHA6370 to each side of the spring.


These washers were fitted on initial assembly from Car No. 12068.


Interleaf friction.


Fit interleaf pads AHA6428 to each spring as described overleaf.
