Job 23 - Gear Lever
An easy job, once the Gear Lever is wiggled in to position. Three bolts torqued up and reverse switch fitted and leads connected. Job done.

Following the purchase of a heater after the arrival of the car, I decided that I would look to open the box. Having taken the unit out of the box I made a mental note of how the vent facia was mounted to the actual heater unit (ears up).

Taking the front and back apart I set about positioning the vent facia, which proved quite difficult as there were a number of cables and the main ECU cable in the way. Struggling on my own, I requested Katey's help to position the Facia as she directed from the front of the car, I managed to wiggle the mounting bolts through.

Another job I knew I could do on my own and something that had to be done before the diff went in was to install the Hand Brake. Locating the parts being the most time consuming part, again!
As with many others, the thicker Clevis pin that mounts the handbrake to the mount in the transmission tunnel was missing! As others had done I decided to use a nut and bolt as a temporary fix until I can obtain one from Caterham.
I also struggled to get the thin clevis pin through the Hand Brake clevis as the holes were out of alignment (in my opinion a poorly manufactured part) a bit of gentle persuasion with a hammer soon sorted that.
