ATTENTION:
The flow reader and the preamplifier are oversensitive parts. They must
not be strained mechanically, especially by bending, gripping with pliers or
straining them by pulling.
Make sure that data on the label correspond to the actual engine type.
(MPI)
To prevent the possibility of the flow reader signal interference it is
necessary to observe the described routes of the flow reader cable in the
engine space.

Take off the upper engine cover in order to make access to the injection
valves. Shift out the metal stirrup from the reader and put it in a safe place.
Push the reader with the preamplifier through the seal into the engine space
and push the cable through.
1.3 MPI engine: Lead the flow reader cable from the seal into the engine
space along the original cable bundle to the injection valve of the fourth left
cylinder (from the car front view).
1.6 MPI engine: Lead the flow reader cable from the seal into the engine
space along the partition which separates the engine space and the cabin,
behind the heating exchanger directly to the injection valve of the first left
cylinder (from the car front view).

SHIFTING THE FLOW READER INTO THE


STIRRUP

INSTALLATION INTO A CAR 8

Install the flow reader on the red wire from the pair of wires, which go to the
injection valve. Remove PVC wrapping of the wires up to 30 mm from the
injection valve connector. Wire the metal stirrup of the reader onto the red
wire and shift the reader into the stirrup slots so that its cable is parallel with
the remaining wires for the injection valve. Fix the reader by wrapping
insulating tape around and fasten its cable using clamping strips. Fasten the
upper engine cover back on its original place.

Outdoor temperature reader


Stick the outdoor temperature reader through the seal and pull it into the
engine space. Lead the reader cable along the cable bundle to the left
headlight using existing cable grips. Insert the temperature reader into the
holder and lead it into the front bumper space towards left fog lamp pocket.
From model 98: Remove the left fog lamp grate. Bore an aperture ø 6 mm
- see figure bellow. Lace the thermometer with holder through an original
opening ø 30 mm and fasten it forward using enclosed screw M6 with
washer and nut. Get the fog lamp grate on.
Older models: If the car is equipped with fog lamps, loosen the fixing
screw of the left fog lamp and fasten the holder with the thermometer below
the screw in order to point the reader forwards and the cable upwards. If
there are no fog lamps installed, remove the fog lamp pocket cover and
fasten the holder with thermometer using enclosed screw M6 with nut.
