Re: How many parts have been replaced in your 147 under warrenty
4 000 km - Front left indicator - it was full of water after rain
18 000 km - clutch - it made strange noises when in reverse and when downshifting from 3rd to 2nd gear
31 000 km - variator, cambelt and tensioner
As to the warranty dealer work:
- indicator was next day full of water again, I had to take it out, dry it put new and thicker seal and from then is OK
- clutch exchange - mechanic forgot to deaerate the clutch hydraulics, so after 6 km the clutch did not work and I could not shift. After 30 minutes I was able to drive in 2nd gear back. In the meantime, all mechanics went home as I picked the car in the evening as last customer and there was only one mechanic for 24 hours emergency. At least he was helpfull and sorted it out in 10min.
After a week I noticed that oil is dripping around the draining nut. That "MECHANIC" put the old used seal around the nut although they have to change it with every oil change.
- Al least the variator is OK, but I have only 33 000 km on the clock now.
