9 months on and all seems relatively well;
Changed the cam belt immediately after purchase, knocked off purchase price.
Clutch replaced but also needed dual mass flywheel and main cylinder replacing.....
Have an annoying creak from the front suspension (seemingly both sides) when cold, goes after about 2 to 3 minutes driving - any suggestions?
Radio reception can be a bit ropey; Nottingham is typically poor for getting radio reception (AF is a bit too sensitive to keep track of the station I want) but have discovered touching the standard roof mounted aerial makes reception much better (yes I understand the principle) however does anyone have experience of a standard aerial degrading? and secondly, if a replacement will do the job, any suggestions on where to purchase from, other than main dealer (Halfords don't seem to sell a simple replacement)
Oh and as previously listed, headlight level adjustment is playing up; has a habit of running up / down without using the button; will drop the lamp out on a sunny day and try and clean up connections.
Anyway, loving it none the less and yes I think I've been bitten......though what to buy next?
I have recently bought an 04 plate 3 door 147 1.9 JTD 16v Lusso in "Black" well it's more like a very dark graphite grey, on a whim in place of my loved 1.4 Ford Puma.
Has just clocked 75k, half of which was done in the last 18 months; have just changed the cam belt.....yes I was surprised this hadn't been done, but was a good excuse to get a few hundred quid knocked off.
I must admit I've not fallen in love with it straight away, was sort of expecting it to be as spritely as the Puma but liking it more and more each time I drive it.
