156 2.4JTD SW


Hi all...first time poster, short time lurker.

I might be getting a 156 2.4TD Wagon tomorrow...2002 model for 700. Got to be better than the Focus rotbox that just died on me.

EDIT: I did it - bought yesterday, had a blat around then work and back today - 150 miles in total.

Couple of niggles, but then it was 700:
Nearside main beam not working (bulb OK, so I'll run a wire from the offside in parallel
Offside sidelight bulb out
very stiff in neutral - gonna strip out the linkage tomorrow
clunk from front offside - wishbones/ball joints
rear wiper motor stiff - needs stripping and lubing.

All in all - very happy!
