I recently got a 147 55 plate 1.6 and it needs some work
1st up suspension creaks and bangs. Just had it up on the ramps. Both top arms and off side lower. Anybody experience of these birth kits from italy. The full kits as cheap as the 3 parts seperately over here.
I might aswell get the lot done for the price, aslong as the supplier is reliable. Anyone used them?
2nd. Is it 3 years the cam belt on these. The head was blown 19,000 ago and 3 years. What else needs changing with the cambelt to future proof the car?
3rd. Anyone know any decent back box suppliers at reasonable prices? Its on its original back box by the looks of it the way the rust is peeling off? I would quite like a cheapish stainless but dont wanna pay a fortune on the 1.6.
4th it needs a service so oil and air filter. Where is the cabin filter on them, is it passenger footwell like the 156? Anything else need changing? I'm pressuming the plugs will have been done with the engine build after the head blew?
Just removed the middle heat shield as it was held on by about 3mm of steel around 1 bolt, the other 2 bolts rusted/pulled it away. It wont cause any issues will it?
Think thats it for now, cheers fellas
