the 90 bravo 1.8 hlx

couldnt say no at this price! mot failure on brakes- which il be able to do within an hour at cost of about 35 but not in this weather pissing i down. its really nice to drive though, feels so more solid compared to my punto, bodywork isnt great but its nice and again much better than my punto.

My god for 90 that looks in pretty good shape, excellent find

I imagine the brakes aren't the only thing needing done though surely?

you can test the sensors by checking their resistance rather than replacing them.... they are bloomin expensive things to replace

that suggests you have a sensor fault on one wheel. it should be easy to figure out which wheel if you have a multimeter, and you can use the tinfoil trick to fix it.

admit it, the bravo makes a mk1 punto seem crap and dangerous.

how do i use a multimeter on it?

and yeah, the bravo is much better, even than the mk2 punto.

cant really compare it to the uno cos i dont think you can get much more 'crap' and 'dangerous' lol

remove the wheel, disconnect the sensor's wiring plug, measure the resistance across the 2 pins on the sensor's plug. the 'good' result is in the manual, i dont have it with my as i'm on my girlfriend's computer. no reading at all means you need to do the tinfoil trick. a very high resistance usually means a light tap with a hammer on the sensor will sort it out.
