buying 147 : steering leak & rattle please help!!!
just been looking at 51plate 1.6 147 lusso 90,000 on clock almost complete history . on for £1950.
I know thats top price . the car is overall very tidy but do have some haggling points already ( tyres, cracked lens, water damage to upholstery etc ) . hoping to get down nearer £1500 mark
What concerns me the most is that there is a leak of a very clear oil under the front left arch, and also when i took it for test drive there was a faint clunking/rattling sound from front left dash area.
I understand that these (147's) have problems with corroshion on the power steering pipe clips and guessed the leak might be this : how much will it cost me to rectify this approx ...???
also any ideas on the clunking/rattle .. im sure it could be alot of things .
Having mechanic look at it for second viewing , but need idea of parts cost etc
ANY HELP OPINIONS WOUDL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AS IM LOOKING AT IT TOMMORROW NIGHT!!! whats its worth ??
many thanksk in advance
