Re: Orkney Cinq

Super Clean
Gave it a damn good wash/clay bar/polish/wax a few weeks ago. One thing I've noticed is the logo badges seem faded... or are they meant to be that shade?

Handbooks
I've also got two different editions of the owner handbook; the very first which is correct about the keys but has diagrams of the early 93 dash, and a later edition which mentioned different coloured keys but has the correct diagrams. Guess I'm in the grey area in between! I do actually prefer the interior and dash of the early 93...

Re: Orkney Cinq

Replaced clock bulb
Replaced the bulb in the clock which had died.

Repaired gear stick surround
Then noticed the gear stick surround plastic had come away. I couldn't find the part number for this, but it turns out supergluing it back together works just fine and it looks almost intact.

Good stuff..!!

The badges all look like that.. natural ageing ?

Re: Orkney Cinq

I'm currently back to my monthly trip to central belt Scotland, and decided to test out the timelapse function on my phone.

Normally I average 52mpg, but on trips like this I get 55mpg. However on this occasion I got a record 61mpg (400 miles in one tank)... since I didn't drive any differently from other times I've went on these trips I can only ascribe it to the Redex I used earlier in the week which I got on offer 🤔

Re: Orkney Cinq

On Tuesday my clutch snapped, or so I thought. Turns out it was just the plastic pivot that connects the clutch pedal rod to the clutch cable.

Bought a new one for next day delivery and popped to Halfords to grab some split pins. When leaving there was a Cinq Sporting in the car park

Replacing the plastic bit (seemingly called a clutch quadrant, not sure why) is easy but a bit fidgety.

Re: Orkney Cinq

its annoying when you get a car all clean and shiny and the badges let the side down, they are getting harder to find as well now. Finding all the badges for my last classic panda was truly a massive challenge. I got most of them from italian and polish ebay in the end

Bought some wood, cut it to 100x40cm and now my boot doesn't sag into the gap around the spare tyre

Re: Orkney Cinq

Done the 81k service a couple weeks ago.
Funny to think I've done the same amount of mileage in 1.5 years as it's previous owner did in like 10.

The front seats have always been particularly grubby, so I smothered in a can of car fabric cleaner, then took a liquid vacuum to them. Liquid vacuums are sooo satisfying, you can see the dirt getting sucked-up as you do it, and unlike the regular cans of fabric cleaner you get in car shops, this method was visibly doing the job as I went.

Attached is before and after. Not perfect, but certainly an improvement.

Re: Orkney Cinq

Another before and after; cleaned up the engine bay a little.

It won't be long before the 90k service... hopefully travel restrictions don't get in the way by that point.

Re: Orkney Cinq

Electrical problem.
  • Sidelights work.
  • Dipped beam does not.
  • Full beam does not, EXCEPT if pulling on the stalk.
  • At the same time, the electric windows no longer operate.

All the fuses in the fuse box are intact.
  • But where is the dim/dip fuse show as item 44 on page 12.20 of the Haynes manual?
  • Which of the relays is the dim/dip relay
  • Which of the relays is the electric window relay
  • I can't see the electric windows and the lights sharing any circuits or components, is it just coincidence that they've both failed at the same time or am I missing something.
