Rear Wing Extension


Recommended Posts

Is it safe to "assume" that if I pull the fuse (which I believe is D7 on the turbo), while the wing is fully extended, it will stay extended? I like the look, but do not want to install a "permanent kit" so I may have the flexibility of returning to auto operation when I want.

Would this work and/or do I run the risk of damaging a relay or anything else in the process?

Thanks again!

MY of car?

D7 might work (The hydraulics consists of a pair of fluid-filled pistons that look a lot like a pair of epoxy tubes. The pistons are driven by an electric motor. If you disconnect the power, e.g., by pulling the fuse, then the pistons can't move and there is no danger of a leak. The wing should stay in whatever position it is when you pull the fuse, though you will likely throw codes), but you will also not be able to open the bonnet...

Some folks suggest unplugging the harness (and replacing with a fixed wing harness for long term). Not sure of the long-term effects on the hydraulic rams.
