    So I had a locked ABS Hydraulic control unit (part # 70000768). Took car to specialist indie and got part installed and new brake fluid. Car drives great and error codes all gone.

    But then I noticed one of the rectangular carpeted covers under front hood was off. When I tried to put it back on it wasn’t possible as the black circular part from the ABS pump was sticking out (believe it is part # 148977 - last picture). Attached pictures explain it better than I can. What’s going on?! o_O Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login [/ATTACH] Image Unavailable, Please Login

    btw I have seen in other cars that switch accumulators, they rotate the pump for clearance, not sure whats involved with the 3xx cars in doing that.

    In a 355, you cannot rotate the pump unless you choose to not mount it at all. You have to find the correct accumulator bomb.

    I think your carpet has sunk, mine did. Right were the two parts join. Usually due to a little weight on it pushes the carpet down.

    So for anyone with the above problem who are using the standard bulb that came with the car. If over time the boot carpet sinks, the same thing happens as above.
    So just for future reference, here's a couple of pictures of what can happen.
