Re: '88 Panda 4x4 SR

That's what I heard will stick with replacing the arms.

Re: '88 Panda 4x4 SR

Funny about the rear wheel bearings, my Sisley always has that as an advisory, I've heard it mentioned a few times by other people aswell, seems all 4x4s have it

Good to know. Will leave it for now anyway and keep an eye on them.

Re: '88 Panda 4x4 SR

Yes I agree - I'm always replacing wheel bearings and CV joints, I think it's just a Panda 4x4 thang

Re: '88 Panda 4x4 SR

Yeah I've had slight play in rear bearings as advisory on a couple of 4x4's too, but the bearings themselves have always been fine.

I've got plenty of arms if you're stuck James, and ball joints in carriers for 4x4's in case you have trouble there too.

Sorry I missed your call, are you sorted now?

Re: '88 Panda 4x4 SR

When I went for the MOT, it wasn't leaking then, but it is now. Seems that I now have a coolant leak from the heater matrix. Don't think I'll get that free retest afterall

Yep, is a very good looking car. Just need to get some MOT and tax on it, not sure when that will be though as still work to be done.

Re: '88 Panda 4x4 SR

Finally!!!

The Panda passed it's MOT yesterday morning with only advisories on cracking front brake hoses which will be replaced before the winter sets in.

Also paid a visit to @purple haze to collect the parts, so all in all a very good day. Thanks again Kev
