Opel Corsa B 1993–2000 Service and Repair Manual: 1B1 carburettor - overhaul

Note: In the rare event of a complete carburettor overhaul being necessary, it may prove more economical to renew the carburettor as a complete unit. Check the price and availability of a replacement carburettor and of its component parts before starting work; note that most sealing washers, screws and gaskets are available in kits, as are some of the major sub-assemblies. In most cases it will be sufficient to dismantle the carburettor and to clean the jets and passages.

1. Remove the carburettor from the engine.

2. Detach the vacuum unit pull-down hose from the throttle body housing.

3. Remove the four retaining screws and separate the top cover from the carburettor body (see illustration).
