To distract myself from the ongoing brake issue I decided to do something about the gearknob.

As every 100HP owner knows it's something that can really bring the interior down with its flakey brown plastic-ness.

I removed it yesterday to fit my leather gaitor and got busy.

Used some solvent first to remove the plastic coating, then some spare matt black steering wheel renovator I had kicking about.

Then I painted the shifter pattern as all it does is collect dirt and dust.

The end result is pretty good I think and a good alternative to getting it recovered or replacing it with something generic.

Hope you like it

Re: My New 2009 100HP

Took a pic of the rear discs before they got binned, no prizes for guessing which one had the seized caliper.

Also a pic of the rear wheel bearing, the inner race just fell out when I removed it so I'm fairly certain that was the cause of the persistant hum.

Rear calipers, lines and handbrake cables are all here and awaiting fitting, painted the calipers while they were sat around in the shed.

My new blue key case turned up today so I set about swapping the parts over. Turns out the flick key bit was different so I couldn't just use my old one. Just popped to the shops and had the new blade cut so in total it cost 16 which I didn't think was too bad.

All working perfectly and everything on the case is nice and tight.

Also had the aircon filled up this week (you can blame me for the weather turning) as I was only getting warm air coming through. Its now blasting cold but it was completely empty so I have to go back next week when the Panda is in for a service for a check over to make sure there are no leaks.

It could just be that it hasn't been filled up for a long time but my mate just wanted to be sure so he's added some sort of dye to track anything down.

This may be the last update on the Panda for a while as I'll be moving house soon. Just accepted an offer on my current house and put in an offer on a bungalow which has been accepted so for now that's where all my money will be going...

Re: My New 2009 100HP

Done a few bits since my last post so here they are. Managed to find a new OMP strut brace for 65 delivered so bought and fitted that. I know they don't do much bracing but I liked the look of them and the contrast of colour in the engine bay.

Bought some very cheap tinting film and tinted the clear parts of the rear lights. I think it looks great especially with the blue. Not bad for an hour of my time and 4.

Brakes have also been massively overhauled; new red rear calipers and hoses to go with the discs and pads I replaced a few weeks ago and reconditioned red Alfa Romeo 147 calipers, new 284mm discs, pads and hoses up front.

It wasn't without problems though, two of the disc retaining bolts were already rounded off before I started so I had to force an 11mm socket on with a lump hammer to get them out. I got one out but the other snapped in half so it will need drilling and tapping when the wheels are off on Thursday. Replacement bolts arrived this morning.

Had a quick test fit of the steels while I was there and they look spot on so will be changing the tyres over on Thursday and getting them on the car.

Anyways as usual comments welcome

Re: My New 2009 100HP

Long grub screws and half nuts will retain the discs. They allow you to use self locking dome nuts to retain the centre trims.

These will give you 20mm to retain the hub centre trims. Or go to the 50mm and trim to size.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=232246807 222&_sacat=0

Half nuts -

You can get silver or black stainless nyloc dome nuts for a neat look.

Re: My New 2009 100HP

Thanks Dave, I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing with regards to bolts etc yet but I have just bought some wheel trims for now, more to follow

Re: My New 2009 100HP

Good stuff.

BTW, those I listed are NOT wheel lug bolts. They are just the little M8 things to stop the discs falling off.

Re: My New 2009 100HP

Well I haven't posted here for a while...

I'm still waiting for the impending house move so we've been having a clear out in the loft and around the house but I have found time to fit a 4H -Tech short shifter (fun job), a red tailgate pull and a Punto spare wheel tray with all the tools from the bag fitting in there nicely. I just had to flip the wheel and remove a bit of the backing from the floor mat to get it to sit down nearly flat.

Works really well in the unused space and I always hated the bag just kicking about in the back.

I recently ran out of air con fluid again so took it to my mates garage for a quick look with his UV torch to search for leaks. We couldn't see anything obvious so he filled it back up with a double shot of dye. Hadn't thought any more of it until this week...

While checking my lights I saw that one of my front fogs wasn't working so took the lens out to investigate. I found a nice damp patch on the plastics which felt slightly oily. Looking through the lower front grille there was also a damp patch on the corner of the condenser. So out came the UV light and....one leaky condenser.

So a new OEM unit is on order. I'll be fitting a set of dual horns while the bumper is off too, always thought the standard horn is a bit feeble

I have also had a little play with the missus Dynamic; bought her some new 3D gel number plates, plate surrounds, silver bulbs all round, a LHD drivers rear cluster with LED fog bulb and an AUX lead for the headunit.

Also trying to find some time to finish my centre caps off, same spec as Dave's but with black Fiat badges as the red ones seem to look a bit too shiny.

More updates soon

Re: My New 2009 100HP

I use a stretch of road that's commonly affected by sea fog/mist. People running bright rear lights at night when the normal lights are visible are an absolute menace.

The Panda reversing light is useless so I do like the idea of two reversing lights. Adding some some bright LED bulbs would be even better. What about the regulations regards high intensity rear lights?

Re: My New 2009 100HP

My brother had a VERY bright LED reversing bulb in his Focus ST, I'll ask him if he remembers where he bought it from.

Changed the gearbox oil today; not the hardest job in the world, just a bit restrictive if you don't get the front end right up in the air.

As I've read 1.6ltrs was bang on what was needed. A little bit less than that came out and there is definitely evidence of a leak somewhere so next job will be jet washing it all clean to make it easier. My guess is CV ?

Unfortunately it didn't cure the slight notchy 4th gear so I may have to live with that

Re: My New 2009 100HP

Gearbox (and engine) oil capacities are quoted from dry. Oil changes always use a little less because some oil always gets trapped inside.

Mine leaked from the gear shift rod seal. It intermittently smelled bad and looked a right mess around the gearbox but never any drips on the floor. I fixed the seal and changed the the oil. There was hardly any level loss.

I would say unless it's looking oily there is no leak to worry about.

Re: My New 2009 100HP

I have an obvious drip coming from the gearbox side unfortunately so something has definitely let go but not seriously.

Ill get it cleaned up next time I'm passing the jet wash and see if there is anything that jumps out at me

I would be suspicious of the gear shifter seal. The parts are only a few from S4P and a quick job to fit. On mine the shaft retaining roll pin was broken. That's not the oil leak cause, but had it dropped into the gears....

I'll have a look over the weekend thanks.

Just in case, do you happen to know the part number for the seal and pin?

A quick internet search suggests 55250937 for the seal and 55253917 for the pin?

Shop4Parts comes up with nothing for either part numbers but I have found them both on allcarpartsfast.co.uk for just over 15 posted

Re: My New 2009 100HP

It's always best to call Shop 4 Parts on the phone. I asked for the new gear shift seal and the guy said, "you'll probably want the roll pin as well". Of course I did but had no idea I'd need one.

Same thing with front shocks. Bought a set on online, then realised I needed to add top bearings. The chap said do you want the clamp bolts. They are OEM but are high tensile and very corrosion resistant. I said yes and sucked up the 7 extra they cost. But when I did the job the old bolts (which "looked" ok) were actually trashed with rust.
