Re: my fizz failure

OK lets have a look.....

1. nearside front headlamp too low/ there is a loading adjust lever on most panda's check it's not opposite to offside or adjust to suit 2 min.

2.centre rear parking brake lever is fouling adjacent parts of the vehicle/ I take it it's hitting off the seatbelt mount? bend it back slightly & adjust the cable underneith 10 min maybe 15
3.exhaust system has part of the system excessively deteriorated/ get one from scrappy or plead to members for a cheap spare or go to motor factors for a price and fit yourself. 30min to 1/2 day if it's a b@$t@rd getting the old one off.
4.nearside rear vehicle stucture has excessive corrosion.seriousley affecting its strength within 30cm of the body mountings/ welding can't help sorry
5.offside rear vehicle structure has excessive corrosion within 30 cm of the body mountings/as 4
6.rear fuel system component insecure/Pics please tank or filter or pipe?
7.exhaust emissions carbon mooxide high content at idle/ mixture adjust or fuel tratment with italian tune (rag the ass off it up the motorway for 20-30min)
8.service brake poor/ check master cylinder/fluid condition/bleed/ maybe needs pads,calipers or rear cylinders?
9.parking brake poor/ check shoes drums for wear.

A bit of work but shouldn't be too expensive, just depends on brakes

Smile Re: my fizz failure

Hi thanks for the posts guys interesting i have'nt decided what iam doing with it yet i only used it for 6th months since its last mot last May 2005 clocking up less than 1000 miles so i don't know if the the last tester had a passion for panda's or what? but i took it elsewhere this year where i had my colour motd . I had a leaking fuel pump sender at the top of the tank spraying petrol everywhere thats what put me off road however i managed to get one second hand reasonably priced at 20 of a 1995 model and its fine now i think the problem now is the cross straps that hold the tank are not there and are corroded off hence movement play of the tank.I was expecting some work but maybe not quite as much it sounds worse than it is so thats the latest on it as i say i have'nt decided yet what iam doing with it and it has been SORNed since it went into storage Dec 2005 and their is no pressure as im currently enjoying driving my colour in this fab summer we've had so far using my twin roofs <yum> knowing if i maybe i need to borrow a part from fizz i can.
PS garage says can put it through for 250?what do you think?cheers all

If you buy the stuff it should get even cheaper... and you won't get the cheapest that the garage could find.

as for braking add to the list brake hoses (flexible bits).

Re: my fizz failure

Full new set of brakes inc calipers discs pads wheel cylinders is about £60 at worst, set of pads & shoes £20 or less & freeing up the calipers may do the job

Fuel straps if your not worrying about being neat = 4 bolts & 8 washers £2-3 and drilling 4 holes in the floor

Welding is the dearest bit unless you have friends with a welder.

If there is no hurry do it yourself just take your time and were allways here to help.

if you start to use it as a parts car it's very very difficult to turn the tide and will probably be the end of the car for road use
