I've just bought a 156JTS, with only 45000 miles, the front drivers side suspension squeaks like made, cant feel any play anywhere and dont have any knocks over bumps....have new upper wishbones ready in case...is that likely to be the problem? Secondly, the brakes, compared to my old Y2k 156, are useless...new discs and pads but just totally lack the power and feel as if the pedal goes hard and wont apply full pressure, but the abs comes in ok.....any ideas anyone?
One last thing....the clever last owner decided to replace an O2 sensor upstream of the cat....and to do so hacked the old one out and joined the replacement in with plastic block connectors...now the engine management light is on...can I replace the front part of the loom or will soldering the sensor in properly solve the prob ? Any ideas? otherwise she's a lovely car.....
