Arrow a few questions for the experts!

just a few questions i need answering so i can finish off making my panda perfect over the summer holidays,

1)does the clock light up?
2)where can i find a set of manifold gaskets(cheaply)
3)on the dashboard there is a bulb that lights the green bar above the speedo, should there be another bulb further down the green bar to illuminate the picture of the car?
4)where can i get another locking petrol cap and key (tried scrappies)
5)my boot dosent lock correctly, any suggestions?
6)where to get a new vacum advance, mine has been broken for a few months now. time to sort that out as well.

any answers to any of the questions would be appreciated, wana make my panda as perfect as possible!

Thanks, Chris

Re: a few questions for the experts!

I'm no expert, but.

The clock does light up, the bulb is in the back, if you remove the clock you can't miss it.

Try shop4parts for the manifold gasket and vacuum advance. Failing that your local friendly dealer should sort you out.

turn the key to lock it and it still opens, only way to "lock" it is to push the button in so it sticks, however a tap and it pops out again.

i had the same problem, and to keep the original lock, i took the lock off the car, cleaned the lock, and used some wd40 inside the barrel, and copper grease on the spring, it now works.
