Hi Mike.

One thing I do know is that the letter after the numbers denotes the year of manufacture.
I found out when I bought an Audi electric vacuum pump for the Bentley. Same number but with a later date letter.

Needless to say that the Audi part was a lot cheaper.

Les.

Hi Les

that seems to be part of the problem. Ivor thinks it has broken in the past and someone has fitted one of the early motors in replacement (The early motors activate at a higher speed 100mph instead of 60mph)

The correct part (with a bentley logo on the sticker) is 340 quid, yet VW make one for the Beetle thats 49.......

Ill see what the final bill is when hes finished with the other work on the car and may just risk it for a biscuit its only 49 and I can probably resell it on a well known auction site if it doesnt work?..

That's odd. My spoiler activates at exactly 70mph and retracts at 45ish. Mind you, I do have V8S wheels and tyres on it which are a slightly bigger rolling radius than the originals.

Sounds about right for yours Les.

I need to be hitting license losing speeds just to see my spoiler

do you have any photos of your wheels, Iv been looking at the 21" SSR Titaniums for mine, did you find the bentley stamped tyres ok?

As pointed out, the offending part in the airfoil assembly is the weakness of the plastic threaded tubing..threads give up. Not easy to pick apart the (closed) assembly, but a good fix is just to block the plastic from moving / snapping out of position e.g. with a wooden block cut to size.
Amazing what top marques fit in unsuitable plastic and sub-standard alloys these days (don't get me started about Porsche).

Jeffrey Serwatien is an unknown quantity at this point
the rear air spoiler on my 2004 Bentley GT doesn't retract on one side. It will go down, but then springs back up on drivers side.

The the cover off from the inside of the boot lid and you should be able to see what's happening.
