Hows the drive now the wishbones are done..??
Mine was more bouncy than wandery..

WAY better.. there was no rubber left in the one bush.. eek!

yeah.. you said there's one for 60 quid.. it's not black tho.. and i only paid 70 for the car.. so feeling reluctant.. there's also one for 15 quid.. although i need to get a drivers side headlight first now.. after inspecting the issue with light alignment i discovered that one bracket was actually snapped, currently secured with cable ties.

Fitted new washer jets and pump and put some decent wipers on so i can actually see now too! getting there slowly.

Re: Many Marea questions from a newbie!

so, i now have a broken drivers side mirror thanks to Doris and a fallen tree... (it could have been worse)

Thinking of upgrading to electric mirrors.. i am having trouble finding a picture of where the electric mirror switch is located in a Marea.

Can anyone help?

cheers!

Re: Many Marea questions from a newbie!

Hi, Ceriffwrdd. There's a company called tradevanaccessories.co.uk who do a stainless steel covering for door handles etc.I do not know what they are like or if they do them for your vehicle. There's also a site called wingmirrorman .co.uk who does w/m for your car. Again don't know anything about this site.

Down by the coin holder thing? that makes sense.. there is a big gap at the end of the coin rack. The hunt begins!

Yeah.. like i said.. annoying lack of cup holders.. one single useless cup holder inside the glovebox door... It doesn't hold a cup, i can't reach it from the drivers seat... I am going to make something to go in front of the gear stick.

Crazy though, for a "family" car that seats five comfortably... one piddly cup holder that you can't access. heheheh

Re: Many Marea questions from a newbie!

I borrowed a Marea JTD estate once... there was a whirring when driving that I was told was the Turbo.... maybe I noticed it more because I drive a petrol Brava 1.2 . Power steering problems sound worse near to full lock. Electric pumps shouldn't give constant noise.

As for wheels, yes 15" will look much better, anything from a medium sized Fiat 90s era onwars.. 98mm PCD so very specialized exceptfor Alfas. So Brava / Bravo / Marea / Punto, but maybe 15" from a basic Stilo would be OK depending on the offset and how they sit in the arches.

Hope your project goes well...
