Just Got a 1997 146 2.0 with no mot from the auction. Full service history with 140,000, very good condition with master key and 4 brand new tyres, new exhaust, new thermostat and other bits and pieces. Cambelt change recorded at 122,000
Has a decat pipe (need a cat for MOT)
Needs slight welding on sill (not a problem)
Needs transverse arm bushes (easy and cheap to replace)
Need a horn
May need front offside wishbone (will see what mot says)
has sticking lifters (will give oil flush and new filter and use oil treatment)
Front and rear brake pads
Near side wing mirror.
That's what i see before mot.
If anyone is breaking a 146 contact me as i could do with getting the cat for the mot, Horn and wing mirror.
