Chassis fixing points

PostPost by: Elan Peter » Fri Apr 26, 2019 5:12 pm

Hello everybody.
Sorry to bother you but could somebody please confirm where the chassis fixing points are on an s2 elan. I have already found the rear ones on my s3 but I'm not sure weather they are in the same place. We want to remove a body from a chassis this weekend, has anybody got any tips from experience of how we can make it a little easier.
Best regards, P

There are 16 attachment points and various other things need to be disconnected to remove the body. These may help....

If it's helpful I show the 16 fixing points in this video I made about the chassis: https://youtu.be/Ar5ynxMKYU0
The fixing point detail starts at 6:00 into the video.
