pond in passenger footwell

A few days ago, after extremely heavy rain i found my passenger footwell was about 2 inches deep in water!!!

i suspected the sunroof drainage pipe, so i lifted the carpet, removed the sunroof and got someone to pour water down the sunroof drainage holes as i looked under the carpet. Sure enough when water was poured down the front passenger side drainage hole water flooded into the car, through a hole in the chassis.

I looked under the car and located the drainage holes, there are 3 of them, the seam that runs along the car sills has 3 bulges in it along the length under the door, these bulges have a hole in them and these are the drainage holes, i cleared the front one out with a screwdriver, poured more water down, and hey presto, its all sorted now!!

I thought i would just post this message in case anyone else has the same problem, just need a new radiator and passenger door lock (damn theives [V]) and my seicento will be perfect again!

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan

The local clever mafia have been at my car, so my passenger lock's been totally smashed to bits, including the mechanism.

What are you planning to do with yours, get a separate lock from the scrappy or get a proper lock from fiat (btw how much do these cost?) cos it's summer and that's the time for fixing things!:)

I can see the top of my car in the car park...

Looks good Jonna, I take it you asked them what a "Fiat Chinchento" is?

Re locks

Our Sei has broken into last week and the drivers door lock damaged.[V]

The local friendly FIAT dealer gave me the following options:

1) Just replace the drivers lock and make do with a different key - 72 including fitting.
2) Replace all locks, incl ignition, petrol cap etc - 185. The lock kit (if you want to fit yourself) is 65.

Note, this is for a phase two Sei (2001 onwards - no red key),

However, the body shop that is repairing some minor damage to door said they were able somehow to combine the mechanism from the old look with a new look so that I can still use my original key (price 50). Understandably this is the option I went for.

The delinquents also nicked my parcel shelf with newly fitted 6*9s. Next stop an alarm I think!
