Parts: Sovy Device, Bonnet Lever, ...

PostPost by: umbyfer » Thu May 20, 2004 10:54 am

I am looking for:

1) a used bonnet realise lever only, with out cable; it is not longer available as a new part.
2) the sovy device; the valve on the brake master cylinder dual system to switch on the warning brake fail light.

Could anyone help me to find them?

I got the bonnet release parts for my S4 from Dave Bean in California, but they should be availble other places since they are just bent metal and choke type cable. A little spring metal and access to a sheet metal bender and you could make your own.

The Sovy switch part was also used on a Jaguar XJS, although I suspect the italian version off a Fiat Spider would work in a pinch. My cousins 1989 XJS has the exact same switch as my S4. The metal reservoir part of the Sovy section of the brakes could be made from a paint can, such as used for custom mixed paints
