Re: A few questions regarding parts
Hi Kryton, are you aware that there is an Alfa Indy in Wellington?
More to the point though, where abouts are you in Somerset as I travel down to Taunton every month and maybe could help out with a few of the things you've mentioned.
The seatbelt, wont fail an MOT for what you've mentioned, though it's worth taking a look at as is sounds like the reel may have sliped.
You can just get a rubber to replace the knackered one in your rear wiper from any decent autofactor.
The squirters, is the water straight out at 10cm or is it dribbling out at 10cm? Just stick a pin down the holes and see if that clears them out.
As with changing the seats, DISCONNECT THE BATTERY AND LEAVE FOR 30 MINUTES BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING. Or you'll set the airbags off, after replacing either you'll need to get the airbag light reset.
Clutch....That's not right, possible thrust bearing problem there.
The pin HAS TO STAY, otherwise your speedo would lie to you.
Diesel sound on startup is a faulty Timing Variator, no biggie and no need to replace it till you get the timing belt done, though that will be in the region of £400 when needed.... (3 years or 36K whichever is soonest)
