More 147 q's - stereo, alarm, suspension noise
Hi all, next load of q's (told ya so) 147 1.6 TS 2001
First up is the stereo, looks like the stock tape unit and it is isn't storing any radio stations and feeding back through the speakers whe switched on. I thought it may be the switched and perminant live cables being swtched for a sony unit but i removed the unit and no sign of this. Also can't find a code card in the manual book, are these stereos coded and how can i find it if i need to?
second is the silent alarm, arms & disarms and goes off silently. Can this be a coding issue when a past owner has turned it off or is it more likely to need a new sounder?
Last up is the nsf suspension, had developed a knock before the test drive and the vendor had the drop links replaced but the knock is back again. Nothing obviously worn or broken but think it may be bushes on lower wishbone. There seems to be a lot of issues with worn and noisy bushes on these cars. WOuld all wishbones need replacing or just sides/upper & lower? You can feel some play in the nsf wheel when you waggle it but nothing on the osf. This suggests bushes or wheeol bearing to me.
