Re: Roll call for Punto cabrio owners !

Turbo ? ;-)

I must admit i saw a yellow coupe the other day, made me think of my old one, so off to Ebay i went........... oh the temptations.

But the Hgt must be a rare beast by now.

Re: Roll call for Punto cabrio owners !

turbo has been considered obviously - but i think really i'd prefer a coupe 20vt, which may happen at some point.....

Smile Re: Roll call for Punto cabrio owners !

Just found this site! We have had our 16v cabrio from new & Mrs H cannot find anything that she would rather have! She wanted yellow & blue hood, but I said we'd never re-sell it in those colours! (What did I know!) so ours is silver & black hood. Goes really well, only 50k+ miles.
Just realised the engine drive belt hasn't been changed for 10 years! Seems to be a bit of teeth sucking about changing it...How difficult is it?
Will follow this thread with interest. We are an endangered species...We also have an MG ZA (1956) & I think there are more of them "on the road" than PC's!

Re: Roll call for Punto cabrio owners !

We bought our 1994 model in 2000 and changed the cambelt immediately. It was only this year that we realised that we hadn't changed it since. It has now been changed!
Thanks Cento Painter thanked for this post

And its really easy, got any questions on the process just start a new thread and ask

Car in continuous use as daily driver! Regular oil changes & the odd Italian tune up! I'll hold off the latter until the belt is changed!

Re: Roll call for Punto cabrio owners !

Welcome to the club ( so to speak ).

Its great to see so many owners on here, we are a rare breed indeed.

The belt change isnt too hard, but then alot depends on your experience. It can be done without the tool, for what its worth.

Re: Roll call for Punto cabrio owners !

To answer your question, I'm I cheshire. Does anyone here know where to have the roof re-covered? Preferably close-ish to me. Had a couple repairs on it and a repair in the back window. The roof is blue and think it would look better black.

Re: Roll call for Punto cabrio owners !

As far as I am aware, they were only available with electric roofs in the UK. If the motor fails, there is a tap by the hydraulic pump which allows you to operate it manually.
