FIAT BRAVA 182 rear suspension arm

hi guys discovered bearing on nearside rear arm has collapsed so a new arm priced ts at 2 places between 200 and 250 so think scrappers might be next best but no one round lancs seems to have a hgt so my question is does it have to be a hgt rear arm or are some other models the same cheers

has to be a hgt i belive a friend had the same problem and he had to use a hgt im unsure if all the disk brake stuff are a straight swap onto a arm set up for drums (i imagine you need a backing plate ect).

How hard it is to replace a rear Radius arm 1997 fiat Bunto

As the procedure is much the same on either car (Puntos wear out more often though) Remove centre cap for the hub nut and loosen nut (32mm) Jack the car remove wheel and remove all brake components Remove the hub (carefully) the drum backing plate handbrake cable and the brake hoses and pipes on the arm in question. Try to plug up the brake fluid as if let run dry it will ruin the master cylinder (which

FIAT BRAVA 182 loud cracking noise from rear suspension JTD105

Hi guys I am about to start a repair on my JTD 105. There is a loud cracking noise from the rear suspension nearside which I cant quite pinpoint even with the car on a ramp.If anyone has encountered this problem I would be glad of some advice. Has anyone tackled the job of replacing axle bushes on this model. If so I would like to know what I am letting myself in for assuming this is the problem.Thanks again

FIAT BRAVA 182 General suspension problem.

I got my 1996 1.4 brava_SX from Austria from 15 years now i currently live in Romania i have this problem with my ride quality i think its way too rough so i decided to try and fix it somehow ive spend 3 hours at 3 different mechanics and the couldnt find a single problem in the back except the After-Market KYB Excel-G Shocks ive got on the car are so hard that makes the ride unbearable is it normal

There is not much to make noise in there The shocks The TA bearings The brake balancer (not it as it is behind a spring sound is all wrong for that) The anti-rollbar is bolted straight to the arms and doesnt touch the subframe or body so it shouldnn make noise. Sure the spring isnt broken and rubbing altough its pretty imposible as it has nothing to hit. I had hard time with marea when the original

My experience with a brava (2001) is that KYB Excel gas dampers are quite firm but not excessive. Nearly all front end noises (especially clunking over bumps) are due to worn front wishbone bushes - also on Tipos and I guess Puntos. On my car I have changed these also drop links track rods track rod ends - all over time. Very common areas for wear and noises.... On my Tipo (1995) a lot of crashing

If its one thing i hate the most its not giving a car problem a proper diagnostic fiats are so complex that my problems could be caused by a lot of things i cant just start trowing parts at this car i need to make sure 100% that the parts im changing are the ones causing the problems and im saying that cause im a god damn student and as you can imagine i dont have lots of pennies in my pocket i came

Im contemplating doing the same with my 1.6 Multipla. I found a rear suspension arm bush kit for about &16320 on shop4parts. But not sure if Ill be able to get the old bushes out in situ. Also read that its best to renew both sides at once as otherwise you will notice uneven cornering as one bush is new & tight and the other old & sloppy. I believe the Multi shares many parts parts with the Bravobrava

FIAT BRAVA 182 Coupe suspension to Bravo 1.2

Is this possible Is it a good bad idea to get used suspension and put it on another car If it works will the suspension lower my car Specifically the shock absorbers. Also which springs will i need

its not possible and even if it was it wouldnt do you any good. the mounting points are different at top of struts lengths are different front and rear hubs wont connect to shocks on front shocks wont connect to arms on rear it would be more difficult than a coupe brake conversion. get springs for your car and if you still arent satisfied then get some gas shocks too. personally i think a set of lowering

FIAT BRAVA 182 big squeek

hi all my 97 hgt has just developed a big squeek at the rear of the car when i go over big bumps in road and it also has a quiet squeek when going over small bumps but cant tell where quiet squeek is coming from any ideas as to what can be causing this. could it be shock spring or bush at rear it doesnt squeek at all under accelaration or braking any help would be great cheers tony

I cant tell you which to replace without experiencing it for myself. So change the cheapest first. The rear bushes well they dont technically exist. But there is a bush on the swing arms that can perish. If you goto www.shop4parts.co.uk Select fiat BravoSteering & suspensionBushes youll find what you need. All are Genuine or OEM parts.

FIAT MAREA 185 Worn trailing arms

Hi. I hope someone can give me a hint. Both my rear tires are excessive worn on the inner side. As far as i can see the Camber angle isnt adjustable... So i guess the only thing can cause this is worn trailingarms bearings. Ive tried to check it using a cowbar but i cant find any excessive wear in the bearings. Any clue anyone Cheers Michael

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brake conversions

Hi everybody its me again Does anyone have any idea of exactly how much i would need to change in order to swap my rear brake drums for discs would it just be the wheel assembly or would i need to replace the hubs and bearings as well and modify the suspension Regards Luis

ive converted a few cars to rear discs. its never hard. the easiest way to do it to remove the whole lot from the donor car and leave it assembled ready to fit onto your car. then all you have to worry about is changing over the rear sections of the handbrake cable and connecting your copper brake lines onto the new flexihoses everything else will be a direct fit and bolts into place. when i say the

Best to get in in pronto. You can be charged with driving a vehicle unfit for use on the roads. A MOT is not proof that its roadworthy. Sounds like it could be heavily worn suspension bushes. Maybe even failed rear trailing arm bearings.

Hi guys thought Id share a few pics and the story behind my Bravo track bitch.

Bit thirsty for a daily driver but I didnt really care Then

Ive changed all the shocks and a brand new pair of front wishbones. I tracked it parallel with the aid of a home made gauge based on last months practical classics instructions and it now runs pretty true and with much less suspension banging. However the

Thanks for the replys. Its not the rear subrame both of whichs front mountings have now been modded to take the brava replacements as detailed in other pages of this site. I first did one side about a 18 months ago and it hasnt given problems since so it seems an ok repair. Track rod ends are also fine. All I can think is either - The new wishbones which were surprisingly cheap have such rock hard
