FIAT PANDA I 141A 141 Cracked windscreen on 1 year old Panda

I have an 16 month old Panda which has got a crack 16 inches long diagonally from the top corner of the passenger side. There are no chips and Ive not had anything hitting it that I know of - it just appeared Two questions - is it safe to drive and should my dealer replace it free of charge Thanks in advance regards NeilC

I think youd gave a case. VW Audi group cars are know for it. Had it on my seat altea. Something to do with the angle of the body on the production line when the windscreen gets bonded in. For reasons I dont understand apparently on the altea at some point it gets tilted and during that stage the windscreen is bonded in. Once the bodys level this can put stress on the screen so anything temperature

KIA CEED ED How Do you organise your USB Music

As the KIA USB system simply reads file and directory names for music and as I like to have either a 16Gb or 32Gb stick with music in the car I wonder how people arrange their music. The structure of my music library is in descending directories of ArtistAlbumTrack but I do not find that very useful on the Ceed display when using the steering controls. So what I have done is written a little programme

AUDI Q5 8R Audi Drive Select - Query

Hi there I just came across this website after some googling. A fantastic resource. I am looking to purchase an 2010 Audi Q5 Special Edition and had a quick question about ADS. Does ADS with only the Damping Control option provide access and adjustments to the Engine Steering and Suspension via the MMI Or to adjust all of these parameters (engine steering suspension) you also need to select ADS with

You can barely make it out in the pic I have linked in my previous post. I guess INDIVIDUAL is only for the full fat ADS but who knows You are right about the Special edition.

FIAT BRAVO Bravo Multijet 150 tips and tricks

New to the site picking up an 08 150 Multijet dynamic on monday and was wondering if their are any nice little tips and tricks to know. Had a good couple of run outs in it and was very impressed its a belting engine mid range and pulls brilliantly. Showed it to my wife and she just looked terrified by the air con and radio screen poor thing. Really looking forward to owning this car especially as it replaces a horrible seat altea.

- even thrashing it you should still maintain best part of 50mpg. Also allow the glow plug indicator light to go off before starting. As with any car allow for proper warm up and cool down at the end of each trip. The button to the left of the CD Player (that looks like a steering wheel) lightens the steering for multi-storey car park adventures. You have a storage area hidden in the front seat

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 have new 2.0T with 6 spd

Hello everyone. I just purchased one of the last 06s remaining at the VW dealership here in Albuquerque NM. Believe it or not they actually offered some cash back incentive. It is Artic blue Silver with the six spd manual. I dont know much about this transmission and would like to ask any other 2.0 6spd owners if they feel its hard to make a smooth start with with this enginetrans clutch combination

to drive more smoothly than the Jetta TDI I had been driving until it was wrecked. While the TDI has lower peak torque (177 lb-ft) it peaks at 1800 rpm like the 2.0T. However the torque buildup is much more progressive than on the Audi I drove which worked more like an on-off switch not much until 1800 rpm. This made it much easier to get smooth launches and shifts off the TDI. I also drove a seat

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 doubleA drives the PQ46 Passat Pics inside

Usually when I get a phone call from Volkswagen its from credit and I dont want to talk to them. So last week when I got a call from a gentleman in the DriverGear accessories group I figured it might be safe to return it. Whats the worst it could be Good thing I did because it resulted in 36 hours with the new Passat. Not just any new Passat either. The Waterfest Passat. I picked it up from VWoA

the TDI power delivery is more progressive than the 2.0T which seemed more like an on-off switch. The TDI starts to pull like a locomotive from 1200 rpm peaking at 1800 and staying flat until about 3000 the Passat...nothing until 1800 or so. But then oh-my-gawd stomp on it and it flies . Well compared to a TDI at least. I guess Im disappointed VW wontcant offer a TDI in 2007. I drove a rented seat

KIA CEED ED CEED 3 DCT auto box Not fully Automatic

KIA brochure is very misleading describes the new DCT box as auto but it is not fully automatic. Just received this email from KIA Customer Services. We are sorry to hear that you dont like the automatic gearbox that weve put in the new Ceed. The reason why the car may feel under-powered while going up a hill is because the car will try to stay in the most economical gear. This means that when going

If its any consolation Vauxhalls DSG box is utter pants too. Last week I returned a 61 plate Astra 1.6 petrol hire car as I hated the auto box. It took forever to change gear and revved like hell but went nowhere when I put my foot down. Even struggled to over take a cyclist up hill as it refused to select a useful gear most embarrassing. Am now driving a manual seat altea Diesel and happy as Larry.

TOYOTA TACOMA New 2002 Owner with some basic questions

Hello All Have a 2002 4x2 5sp 2.4 reg cab Tacoma with 100K. I have a few qas. 1. I have a rear cat code. I am familiar with the OEM cat issues when swapping to after market cats. I am trying to by-pass getting a overpriced oem cat is there a fix for this. I did try to sleeve the O2 sensor but the O2 sensor bracket on the 2002 wont allow that. 2. What are the week points of this drive train From what

I recently Line-xd the bed and I am going to do a tool box back Toneau cover and a slider for the rear window. I will also Line-X the bumpers and do a 2 lift leveling kit with sways and shocks probably Ranchos. Ofcourse I will be scouring this forum for ideas LOL I also want to do a new seat

FIAT BRAVO Grille painting

I got bored earlier on today and i yanked off both front grilles and fog light covers and painted them white I personally like it and so do my mates. Being black the white on the grilles gives it a different look. i will post up some pictures when i can. Has anyone else got the paint can out on there bravos

Both grilles can be taken off easily also the fog light covers. Few photos of the job I found First took the old grille off with a Black&Decker and measured the new seat altea grille in place. Several measurements on & off fitments were in order. After the final result put them in place and used the Sikaflex glue. Yesterday I started to spray the whole package in shiny black colour. Upper is allready done and looks very good.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS GL X164 GL320 CDI and weather dont like each other

Hi I was searched this forum for instruction on how to install a block heater on a GL320CDI 2008 and couldnt find anything if you know of such thread can you please forward the link. I live in Fort McMurray where on winter days it is quite normal to expect -25 to -40 Celsius temperatures. My SUV is an imported US model and doesnt have a block heater. The synthetic oil in the engine is 5w30 Mobil 1

Save yourself some expense go to cdn tire and order a zero start tank type circulating coolant heater get the 1500 watt model and figure out where to install it. The factor block heater is pretty much useless also it does not raise the coolant temp much. I have a zero start on my vw and it is operating temp after one hour of heating HOT It cools off fast once fired up but alteast it helps start it. If the tank type heater is too complicated to install you can always by a rad hose heater install it down low near the engine block and flow direction does not matter. These heaters run 100 tax in are pretty straight forward to install one thing you will need is a coolant flow diagram so it is facing the right way. I am planning on installing one next summer as I am not happy with the factory part. Sure it starts easier but it is not very warm. I am also looking at Webasto or Espar diesel fired heaters as my vehicle sits outside at the ski hill etc and I am picky about it. I am not going to buy one new but would spend a couple hundred on a used one I found a cabin heater to play with so far and plan to heat the engine bay with the exhaust pipe again next summer it will go in. Heat on cold days is nice and drying wet clothesequipement while on the road is even nicer Hopefully yours has heated seats (all cdn models have them optional in USA).

FIAT 500 II Can air-con be fitted afterwards

Hi all Im new on here. I am getting rid (via scrappage) of my beloved but knackered cinquecento which I have owned for 10 years and is the only car Ive ever had. I have ordered the Pop 1.2 in Cha cha azure with brown leather seats ivory ambiance electric sunroof chrome kit and Blue & me. I dont really want air-con which is the main reason I went for the Pop but does anyone know if air con can be fitted

a new car I wouldnt have selected AC. But I found a used Pop with AC at a good price. And even though it hasnt been that hot this summer Ive used my AC a lot I dont think that standard cooling system can cool down the car enough and you have to have your windows down which gives a lot of noise. So my advice is go for the AC. I dont have Blue&Me and wouldnt have selected it. I had Bluetooth in my seat

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 A3 vs. 325i

Anyone driven both to compare Im going to go drive an A3 today for fun and to see how the DSG tranny is.

Audi A3 against 3er E90 The competitor of the A3 is the 1 series. The A3 is based on the VW Golf V and shares a lot of parts with other cars from the VW group like seat altea or Skoda Octavia.

TOYOTA TACOMA Bed AC Outlet Question

Does anyone know if my 2006 Double Cab SR5 4x4 has wiring in place behind the bed box on the passenger side to accept an AC outlet The AC outlet was not available on my truck when I bought it but I was wondering if I bought the box with the AC outlet from a salvage yard could I just plug it in on my truck

You will need the inverter which goes between the seats on an Access cab the wiring front the inverter to the rear plug. If memory serves me correctly there is already the wiring under the center console to power the inverter. alteast it was on my 09. I am in the process of doing this mod too

i cleaned my EGR few days ago httpyfrog.com1xsnc00008ij httpyfrog.com11snc00010jj

Well Ive tried both cleaning renewing on my seat altea diesel I had before but that system threw codes if you blanked it completely so that went back to a stock configuration in the end. Im going to try this and if it does save fuel or have some tangible advantage then Ill keep it that way if not it will go back to stock. Im happy to report back what I find. I see no point in modding just for the sake of it only if it gives an improvement.

FIAT BARCHETTA Fiat Barchetta Bike rack

Well the sun is out the roof is down and my barchetta is looking good. Hope you are all enjoying your barchettas as much as I am. Im on a fitness drive at the moment and want to buy a mountain bike. However Im unsure if its possible to attach my bike to the barchetta. Has anyone found a bike rack that will accomodate this Or does the standard boot rack manage to hold a bike in some way. All comments and suggestions will be gratefully recieved. Thanks

Sorry for the confusion I meant the standard Fiat luggage rack. I believe a clip on rack would work too but I only tried that once in addition to the luggage rack. Its one that fitted on my seat altea too. You know the type with the plastic clips which slip between the hatch and the body. Cheers Matt.

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Was ever E46 320i available as a Special Order

I was looking through ebay and found a 2001 BMW 320i that was in the U.S. that was kind of odd because the 320i E46 wasnt produced in the U.S. and the 325i was the entry level in the States and our Canadian entry was 320i. I asked the seller if the car was originally from Canada and he tells me that the car the car was special ordered and it wasnt a Canadian car. Could this be true Since a bigger

easy retrofit--the one thing Im wondering about is the VIN plate. Maybe Canadian market cars come with the same VIN plates and are built to the same emissions standards as the US cars (this would make sense in a way--maybe you Canadians can shed some light on this). Our standards are quite the same except a few minor differences I dont know really but Daytime running lights (Which the car has) seat

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B6 Help Us Decide - 2.0MT or 4moV6 Wagon

My wife and I cant decide on her next Passat Wagons motortranny weve driven both and like them both - almost all of our vehicles have been manuals - what is your opinion 2.0 Manual - just plain fun to drive less expensive or 4motion V6 - safer more reliable (CR) more expensive Why didwould you buy your choice Thanks

True but to be at least halfway safe in car of the Passats weight 150 hp probably is the best compromise for N. America especially since a wagon can be called upon to haul a load. Our TDI has 134 hp (but rather more torque than the 2.0T) and has never felt unsafe in merging or reasonable passing situations. And it can reach about 200 kmh. But it also has gone as high as 1212.1 km on a single tank and can get about 44 mpg on the highway when driven conservatively. Come to think of it if you regularly pull a trailer 280 hp probably isnt overkill (Id be hesitant to tow with a turbocharger...). But with no trailer even 200 hp is overkill. Incidentally the base engine in the Passat wagon in Europe is a 1.6 L 102 hp four. It only comes with a 5-speed (no doubt it would have a hard time pulling a tall 6th...). I doubt many people buy it that way you may as well get the 105 hp TDI instead and get outstanding fuel economy. Still it is available. Also available are a 115 hp 1.6 L FSI and a 2.0 L 150 hp FSI. It would be nice if the 170 hp 1.4L TSI would be offered that would mimic the power of the old 1.8T but with fuel economy approaching a TDIs. The 2.0T and 3.2 L V6 are also available but probably not popular when you figure about 50% of Passats sold there are diesels. When all is said and done though the best engine available for a Passat is IMHO a 140 hp TDI (remember 236 lb-ft). If that was available thats what I would have bought. Id have even considered a 105 hp TDI. And Europe drives rather faster than 100 kmh...yet they seem to get by on much smaller engines. My view is that any trained monkey can make 280 hp go fast but to go fast on a windy mountain road with less than 150 hp in a 3500 lb car is doable but takes real skill with a gearbox. And is loads of fun. I had a blast last summer with a 140 hp seat altea TDI with six-speed manual in the UK. Mind you it had boatloads of torque.

FIAT 500 II Fuel Economy

I have a new 500 Multijet that has now done about 350 miles and I am only getting 62 mpg on a long motorway run. Is this becasue the car is new i.e will it get better as it wears in abit or should I contact the dealer

Over my first 80 miles or so in my 1.2 lounge the trip computer shows around 36mpg which isnt too bad if the trip is anywhere near right. My Multipla a few years back was pessimistic and my seat altea is optimistic both by about 5mpg. How do others find the computer accuracy compared with real world brim to brim calculations

FIAT 500 II Tyre Noise

I have recently purchased a new Fiat 500 1.4 sport with the option of 16 alloys fitted with Bridgestone Potenze 195. I have experienced a lot of intrusive road noise. Has anybody else come across this and found a solution

When I pick mine up I shall be gutted if it has Bridgestones fitted. I had them on my seat altea and they are the noisiest tyre Ive ever had. Grip was fine though.

FIAT PANDA Brake Screech Fixed

After my half hearted power wash in the local garage I decided to finish the job properly on my front diveway with my own power hose.Well I blasted the wheels and callipers for what must have been 15-25 minutes and the dreaded screech is gone I reckon .Brake feel has changed too a slight hesitancy and then loads of positive feeling bite .This contrasts well with the previous over servoed pogo-ing

Yeah Im v lazy where my power washer is concerned ...its buried in the shed and the hose takes ages to straighten out and it gets mud all over my lovely clean concrete driveway...Both my car and wifes seat altea XLs brakes are grinding like mad since the snow...presumably grit and sand under the pads...cant be good

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS B I 245 B Class is Safest -official

UK Consumer Magazine Which has just rated the B class the safest small family car. Amongst the many safety features they especially commended the ESP system developed by Mercedes and Bosch. The electronic stability programme greatly reduces the likelihood of accidents. Add to this the European NCAP tests giving the A class the best in class award and Mercedes are having a good time on the safety front.

However as I stated in an earlier post Not top in its class and not rated as good value for money by most motoring journalists. Regarding NCAP results Beaten by the seat altea (2004) Equaled by the Toyota Corolla Verso (2004) & Vaxhaul Zafira (2005) All of which are older models and considerably cheaper .

FORD F150 2009-10 Upgrade.....or Not

Current 2006 5.4L Lariat Supercab 4x4 56500 miles. Really on the fence about the 2009. Looking at a 2009 on lot.....4x4 Lariat Supercab 5.4L. Want a 4020 front seat to gain space in front and get rid of dead center console space. Also want to get rid of the spark plug issue on the 06 and a potential tranny problem. 2009 The Good Has a bench front....has SYNC....new warranty period (no plug issue.......no

if you dont want 3.55 rear end have them do a dealer search and find the exact truck you want. if your going to spend the money on a new truck get exactly what you want. so your wanting the middle jump seat instead of the big shifter why not just the middle console w out the shifter the console is actually bigger than the one with the shifter and have a little storage place on the front (alteast the 04-08s do) havent taken the time to look at an 09 in detail yet.

FIAT PANDA How much would this upset the pureists

Been discussing this idea in work with a few of the mechanics to see just how hard it would be. The panda has only moved a few feet since I bought it as I couldnt work out what to do with it. The idea.... Bike engine...RWD Seen it done a million times to minis so it must not ba that hard to do its just deciding wha way to do it. Anyone think its a good idea

two mistakes recently one makes me smilethe other doesnt. First I traded my altea Fr tdi in for an audi S4 avant (this makes me smile) Second I agreed to sell my last project to my mate when he gets his own car shifted cordoba tdi. (this makes me frown) So now If I start work on the panda straight away and the cordy goes Il have to take the s4 to work every day. As much as Id enjoy the heated seats

Had a brand new seat altea with 1.6TDi engine for 2 weeks last month initially felt more powerful than our 89hp 1.4 Pro but actually it was about the same. All the power was delivered between 1500 & 2200 RPM thus it ran outta steam almost instantly and outside that very small range it was utter pants. Ok so it managed 48mpg over the 2 weeks on my country lane commute which isnt bad but way off the quoted 56mpg urban consumption.
