Salvage spares - be very quick

Boo hoo.

There's one less Weekend on the roads now.

I just wrote mine off in a head-on collision at the weekend. Nobody hurt except the two cars involved. My fault, silly a*se. Going too fast on a single track road.

Anyway it's a 1.6sx Weekend (front end obliterated) & waiting to be collected for scrap.

Meantime if anyone wants any bits that can be very quickly & easily (I stress easily) removed, then let me know VERY QUICKLY as it's getting towed shortly. (& no, sorry, the door handles are shot just like everyone else's).

It's in Glasgow but I'll post bits if you reimburse me.

Cheers,

Stewart

Stewart,

If you only want postage then I've no problem leaving this here. If you're wanting to sell parts though - can you advertise them through the classifieds.

God bless you Sir!

So anyone want some bits quick? I'm sure he'll accept donations even if he doesn't want them. What's chance you could whip off the bonnet catch? The spring and clip etc?

edit - forgot.. is that bit dead?

Trying to post a pic for 1st time. Don't know how successful it will be.

1. Bonnet catch will be dead, very dead.

2. I don't know what your rear no. plate light looks like but I'll pull one off anyway (light that is) & try to upload a photo.

1. Photos of the rear no. plate lights. These were actually mounted in the tailgate above the no. plate & not in the bumper so I'm not sure if they will be any good for the Punto. I have the two. They will need an aperture of approx 87 x 27mm and are approx 104mm overall length. They need an oval shaped two pin (socket) connector which I unfortunately didn't have the foresight to cut off with a flying lead, sorry.

2. Unfortunately I didn't have the time (or the knowledge) to remove the centre console from the car, so you'll have to try & find one at a scrappy more local to you, sorry.

It goes into the scrappy today. Bye bye Weekend.

I'll be off this forum & onto the Citroen forum if I can find one as I've just bought a Xantia estate TD. Wish me luck.

You're always welcome to stick around - although expect some well meaning stick

p.s. Make sure you get a spirit level with your Xantia.

Sorry to all.

It has now gone to Fiat heaven to rust forever beside the Chromas & Mirafioris.
