having recently purchased a PH 1 2.0 TS with some TLC required I thought I would update!
cambelt,water pump and thermostat had never been done, I suspected balance and aux belts needed doing to and lower wishbones were also a failure on the last MOT 4 years ago! It had been garaged since then until i drove it back, and sweet it was too..!
done so far
cam belt kit with new variator tensioner and idler
oil, coolant and oil and air filters replaced. and coolant system and engine flushed.
airbag connectors cleaned and airbag light is now off..
new rocker cover gasket.
both mirrors and bases removed and re-sprayed.
drivers seat catch which was not working as the internal cable was broken has been fixed, A faff and a half but the interior is on such good condition i didn't want to scap a seat for such a silly reason.
will post a how to when I get a moment...
centre console has been removed and I will remove ''GUNK'' and re spray a nice matt black...all carpets shampoo'ed and she has come up lovely.
decided after a chat with Dan at Autolusso Penrith and a further chat with Loz at Autolusso Bournemouth that I will not bother with balance belt as it will make no real difference and frees up a few ponies and results in a freer revving engine.
clean and paint calipers and add alfa decals
fit 16'' teledials I have in the garage so you can see the nicely painted calipers with the decals! 10mm spacers and longer wheelbolts in the post.
fit new bonnet and boot badges
go round and take care of some minor blemishes and mop body work
full valet and stand back and admire handywork..
Now to the problem with the sunroof..
it moves forwards, it moves backwards but about 2 inches from the point at which it would close or open in either direction it will not move, have used the manual key to get it past this point and it does feel tight at this point and MUCH easier everywhere else...
it feels like something is ''off'' in the adjustment to me, or it is just very tight at this point and the old motor just doesn't have the grunt anymore...
have covered the whole lot in penetrating fluid and am hoping for an easier time of it tomorrow...
any other suggestions most welcome, I have of course done a search but cannot find reference to this specific issue.
many thanks in advance for your replies...
