Punto Dynamic Multijet 1.3

Decided to finally change my back brake shoes today after 115,000 miles they looked like they might just about be run in, realistically though the handbrake wasn't holding as well and the braking performance had dropped off a bit so I think the drums may have built up a glaze and the pads hardened with age and heat.

Still not bad going for a set of shoes

Shiny and new

I now have a much more responsive brake pedal but I suspect the hand brake cables might need renewing in the not too distant future and they're a bit stretched and have a bit of spring in them

Re: Punto Dynamic Multijet 1.3

Thats the issue I have

The drums glaze over and the shoes go rock hard

I deglaze and readjust it works great but its not long before it gets sloppy again

Re: Punto Dynamic Multijet 1.3

This thread has made me realise just how much I miss my old mk2.

I think I need to do a brake fluid change as well because it's never been done since I've had the car which is over 70k now

Re: Punto Dynamic Multijet 1.3

About a week ago our mini decided it wanted a brake fluid change at 46kmiles and the service indicator has to be reset by mini so I guess it will be getting one (fortunately all covered under a pre paid for service plan) but my punto as far as I know has never had one mainly cause I really hate bleeding brakes

Re: Punto Dynamic Multijet 1.3

Ok so although I will probably be saying good bye to this car soon I simply had to do this mod as I really like the look (I say mod it's original fiat parts)

The front grill always looked fine but the silver chrome detail is beging to rub off after 10 years of being washed and 117k of bugs and stone chips.

So new grill required, old one removed and 10 years of grime cleaned out.

And here is the new one its a new old stock punto classic circa 2008 swap the badges over and pop it back on.

And here is the finished result, very subtitle but looks 10 times better than the old dirty black grill.

These look better with the red badges but I don't suspect I'll be keeping the car long enough for it to matter.

Re: Punto Dynamic Multijet 1.3

This is now back on its original 54 number plate so will be going up forsale at the end of the week.

Tons of paperwork, I've owned it since 2008 and am only the second owner.

Alloys aircon remote locking (2 keys) and electric Windows.

If anyone is interested I'll sell to a forum member for £700 for a quick sale, otherwise it's going on eBay and will see what happens, very few of these diesel 1.3 multijets around at the moment. 118k mostly motorway miles.

Well it only took me just under 3 years to post this video, but got there eventually.

Re: Punto Dynamic Multijet 1.3

Well 2 years since I sold it and itís still going strong, looked like it just passed itís MOT although looking at the fail history I suspects itís not long for this world as the rust is beginning to take hold.

If anyone sees it about do let me know. Reg YS54EKL

130,000 miles had 118 when I sold it so itís had a much easier 2 years since I sold it
