Thanks, I've done the belt on 1.2 8v twice now and I'm considering getting a GP Sporting 16v but there's no history with it so the first job will be cambelt.
What about the phonic reset and all that malarky, is that needed or should the car be fine after the change?

Edit...

Is the the cover to remove and put the allen key in to "lock" the cams?

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

Never had to do a phonic reset ever on any of my cars or cars I've worked on so I'm gonna say no it doesnt need that - afterall once done as far as the ecu is concerned nothing has changed, cause it hasnt lol

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

Excellent thanks. I've found two different cam locking kits, one has a fancy pair of plungers that screw into the spark plug holes along with a tool that screws into the hole you've highlighted.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fiat-Petr...o/254510552228

Another set doesn't have the plungers or the locking tool for the hole but has a locking tool for the lower pulley (must be for the 8vers)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Engine-Ti...o/114079136229

Aha, found one with everything but 95!

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TIMING-TO...A/181077041083

It'd be cheaper to buy both of the other kits than the combined.

I've got the first one - don't feel you need to lock the bottom pulley, it doesnt turn hugely easy and if it does the plunger things move and you know its moved.

Re: Mr & Mrs Blu's Panda 100hp

Four equal lengths of dowel or metal tube will provide the piston position plungers.
