I had a couple more questions

I had a couple more questions for the group –

Is there a source for those Ferrule Sockets? So far I have had to make about 5 of them for transmission Ferrule/nuts, the little arm that actuates the clutch, axel ferrule/nuts, and most recently the steering wheel. I have been making them from 12 point sockets which is OK, but I would really like to find some "real ones"

Does anyone out there know if those “almost microscopic lines” that are the rear window defroster on my C4, are actually wires? Has anyone experienced a rear window removal with
this type of defroster?

Thanks

Aaron

Hi Aaron,

I'm pretty su


Hi Aaron,

I'm pretty sure Marenello Auto Parts/Rutlands sells replica tools at a discount to the dealers. I've had mine for years & years so I can't remember pricing, but it was fairly steep, like hundreds per tool.

Yes those are actual wires crossing the glass from a long strip of micro thin copper on the edges. I've never pulled a C4 back glass, but I've replaced a fair amount of Daytona, 330 and Porsche rear rubber seals...and to answer the question you didn't ask....yes it is very difficult to get the wires re-routed under the seal correctly and plugged back in. But with patience and determination it can be done.

Regards, JRV

Hi Aaron,

I, too, have most of those special tools you're speaking of. Virtually all of them were purchased directly from Ferrari (Algar) many years ago...and they weren't cheap, though they do fit very well.

Other than a Ferrari dealer, some of the special sockets can be purchased directly from Baum Tools.

Regards,
David
