    I am just about to embark on changing the clutch on our Fiat Bravo. The damn thing is slipping badly, mostly when pulling away in a hurry. Has anyone else here changed one and have they got any hints or tips? Also I need to know if I need to drop the subframe. Many Thanks. Simon.

    I was just wondering, does anyone know the cambelt change interval for the 1.2 16V engine fitted to the Bravo 80? I think the handbook states 72k, but that seems long to me. When should it really be done? :D It was last done 25k ago BTW Simon.
