Never had Hydro - would never want it, but from recall the EUROs had full height available. I suspect all the way in is normal, one stop out is high and all the way out is full up for unusual circumstances.
Yes, you pull it out to raise the car. You pull it once, it raies the car like 4" and you are not supposed to drive any faster than 50mph that way. You pull it once more (farther out) and it locks the car in the raised position for service. If you ever put your car on a lift, or take it in for service you need to make sure they know that the knob needs to be all the way out. If you dont, the weight of the wheels will pull down on your hydromat struts, and push all the expensive oil out of your system. So, pull once to raise your car to clear snow or speedbumps, and pull it out all the way for service. Before going into service, i always leave the knob pushed all the way in, wait for the car to rise to normal height, then pull once, wait for it to rise to the "high" position, then wait, then pull it all the way, and wait again before putting it on the lift. Better safe than needing 3 liters of $20/L oil.
Here's what looks like a fully-optioned Euro 500 on ebay. It has the hydropneumatic option, reclining rear seats, and tons of other things. Pretty cheap on ebay so far... might be worth to "restore" this one unlike some other junk models members are trying to restore.
Ok been spending some time on a few things and thought I would solicit comments. Don’t worry you can be brutal it won’t hurt my feelings. I simply need to know if I am missing some odd thing. Also a few of you can really spot things so.... My car is not a trailer queen and I usuallt put...
I got the new wheels on but now I'm having issues with the wheel bolts sticking out in the back and front. I ordered a spacer for the front so I should be able to place the hub cap over the dust cap. But now since the spacer is there, don't I need longer threaded bolts? I'm not adding a spacer...
Not sure if this will stick but as our 126s are getting more love recently figured i might make a thread for those cars on BAT

Rebuilt all my calipers on the sec, I believe when putting the two halves of the calipers together the rear caliper 4 bolts are torqued down to around 35nm or 25llb/ft
I cant seem to find the torque setting of the bolts for putting the two halves together on the front bendix caliper. Does anyone...
Brand new to the forum and I picked up my dream car by chance.
1989, 560 SEC.
Lots of miles(235K) but I don't think that matters much, it was driven almost daily.
I'm no expert as you can read so don't beat me up here with my thoughts!
I've changed a number of sensors to get the...
