Leaky axle seals replacement guide (five-speed manual gearbox C514.5). Not so complicated, but not for complete beginners (definitely not for the very first DIY job). When you see puddle of oil under the car or smell burnt oil, it's typically (in Grande Punto) bad "breather hoses" (Guide) or...

I did the Punto Grande thermostat today and stopped halfway through to research the hose clips I discovered. But there's nothing on here so I thought I should add my findings. The reason for doing it is the traditional Fiat problem of tired thermostat springs which allow a constant trickle of...
