I'm back; with a 147
Very excited to be back across this side of the forum.
I've previously owned a 156 1.8TS, 166 3.0V6, 156 GTA, 156 1.9 JTD M-Jet Sport and currently run around in a lovely white 159 1.9 JTDM Lusso.
My wedding is coming up so I've got the wife a wedding prezzie; a 147 1.6TS Lusso in Rosso. Great car. Drove it home yesterday having paid just £450 for it and chuffed to bits. Lovely little motor didn't miss a beat the entire time. Very pleased.
Some things need attention.
First concern is the gear change is well wangy - you can do circles with your nob whilst in gear (the gear level moves a lot too, boom boom! haha). I've got a full shifter housing, cables and bushes on order courtesy of AutoLusso (thanks chaps!).
Next mission is the drivers side seat, which doesn't slide on its runners - the handle seems jammed so will remedy that (somehow, not sure how yet).
Annoyingly the airbag light arrived on the trip home, so they want looking into.
Slight knock from drivers side, I think engine mount. Could be suspension, worst case drive shaft. Oh well.
Other than that she wants for a good bath and she'll be a cracker. Oh yeh the key fobs don't work - not sure I hold much hope for them but I will see what happens with some batteries and some diagnostics and go from there.
Notes from the previous MOT are exhaust heat shield being loose (that'll come off for the gear linkage anyway) and rear mounts perished - easy enough to sort. Power steering has a slight seapage to it as well, apparently. again will look into this.
Should keep me entertained.
Any suggestions or points from folks more than welcome, especially if you know the car Y133 KVY - last owner had her for 9 years apparently.
