Where in the world are you In the UK there are two versions of a workshop manual for Cinq we dont have Sei. Cheers D
I got one but is in polish ..... ming
Screeching noise is much more likely to be the alternator belt (or the alternator itself) or the cam belt tensioner. Obvious way to proceed is to take off the alternator belt see if the noise persists. Haynes never did a manual. One of the Porter manuals covers the Sei but. but the seicento technical manual is free gratis and fer nowt in the Downloads Library here. Youll need something like WinRAR
Ah. Its a very late 899. The water pump is an easier fit on those. The manual is here in 3 parts as seicento technical manual. Its difficult to navigate (because its so big and unsearchable) but very good. For everyday use the Cinq Haynes may be easier. Try turning the alternator and water pump by hand while the belt is off. Any roughness The alternator should turn very easily while there should be some resistance from the water pump (caused by the seal).
download the seicento technical manual from the downloads section it covers everything. But as said the cinq haynes will have just about everything you will ever need as well if you have a spi sei (thats any car registered 2000 or before which is x-reg or earlier). If you really want a haynes that covers the engine the closest you will get i would imagine is the mk2 punto the basic model has the 1108
Just to say i found one on p2p (emule). seicento technical Service manual there were some 4-5 uploaders.
Nope. Its -- depending on model -- very similar to the Cinquecento for which there is a Haynes. Alternatively the humongous seicento technical manual is available for free download from the ta da downloads library herein.
Actually the SEi technical manual is aailable for nowt n the downloads SECTiON. There is no Sei HAYNES. But one of the Porter manuals covers it farly well.
WD40 is absolute pants as a penetrating oil. Get some GT 85. You dont need a ramp. A decent jack and axle stands will do just fine. Access is a little tight but 38 socket sets (only deisel mechanics and Brooky use 12 sets nowadays) or plain ordinary spanners will get up there. For the rev counter see the workshop manual in the downloads section. The power steering is electric -- if the alternator is fubar then that might well account for it not working.
The motors can be refurbed (if that proves to be the issue). Ive briefly run without PAS on a Sei by pulling the fuse and replacing the top mounts with Cinq ones (the castor on PAS Seis is what makes the steering extremely heavy rather than the slightly faster rack). Ive yet to finish the job by replacing the column with a non PAS one (very late Cinqnon PAS Sei) as I think there may be residual drag from the PAS motor). But as is its entirely workable and I am a poor weak old man. Having said that I dont like PAS where it can be avoided although the Sei system (when working) is pretty good. PAS has IIRC its own ECU (may be accessible with FIAT ECUscan or whatever its called now). Diagrams and full technical description in the seicento technical manual (free in the Downloads section).
to the fan. First steps Check the fuse. Its one of the two behind the battery. Check them both as its by no means uncommon for folk to put the cover on back to front. Check the fan. Unplug the connector to the engine temp sensor (green coded sensor at the back of the inlet manifold very near the thermostat). Start the engine and the fan should come on within a minute. Download the manual -- seicento
Its not likely to be all 4 injectors Youre rapidly loosing the plot. (as I think are we all...........) If the compressions are equal across cylinders its unlikely to be the head gasket. FCS take it to a garage. Youre doing more harm than good. But if you must persist download the seicento technical manual (from the Downloads Library). All the tests (and even some trouble shooting guides) are there.
More like a Punto Mk2 MPI and all that Euro3 nonsense. The factory manual ot seicento technical manual is free for download in the Downloads Library.
Never done it. Anything useful in the seicento technical manual (the factory manual free in the downloads section here)
On the 899s dont use universal ones theyll hold grease (and probably be OK for outers) but the inner boots on the 899 incorporate a bearing and need to retain gearbox oil. Get the real ones from Shop4Parts or eurocarcare.net. Fitting stuff in the Cinq Haynes manual or the seicento technical manual.
Mysteriously it should be on some of the per to peer networks now. Windows users get Shareaza Linux users get Gtk-Gnutella and search for seicento technical Service manual. Filter out anything which does not include .rar Dont know how long it will be up there.
yours being a 2002 it will be mpi so injection system will be a little different from the cinq but it will be fine for most jobs yes. Its the nearest your gonna get to a manual for your car other than the seicento technical manual which you can download here
Never had to do it -- theyre pretty robust You should find it all in the seicento technical manual (free from the Downloads section). Be careful with the airbag and less obviously with the steering wheel. Undo the nut but do not completely remove it you usually need to tug pretty hand on the wheel to get it off so if you completely remove the nut the wheel is likely to knock the odd tooth out
Horn is usually bad connection at the horn itself -- try scratching the contacts clean a little vaseline try again. If that doesnt do it splice in another earth try horn with 12v direct to it check the relay and finally suspect the contacts within the steering wheel. The windows are likely to be a dodgy earth connection. Earths and stuff in the wiring diagrams in the seicento technical manual in the Downloads section.
Temp sensor is a possibility. But I cant see anything obvious. Cant even be sure what colour the wire is -- red pink All the connector typeswiring coloursetc are in the seicento technical manual free gratis and fer nowt in the Downloads Library from this esteemed forum. Its easy with hindsight but a magic market and some masking tape labels takes moments.
Under the car. Its all in the seicento technical manual which is free to download in the Downloads section. Might even be something in the Guides.
The short answer is if you trace the pink wire back from the coils it joins the pink wire to the injectors. This is the most likely fail point (at the join itself). But here are a couple of wiring diagrams from the seicento technical manual -- in the Downloads section. Coils are A30 fuel pump is N40. Dan250GTO thanked for this post
Theres actually a rev counter doesnt work bit in the seicento technical manual free from the Downloads Library.

Theyre under the carpet stuff in the engine compartment passenger side. Just remove that and youll see it in all its glory. There will be a diagram -- maybe evebn a trouble shooting guide -- in the seicento technical manual in the downloads library here.

Not sure that there is an ECU as such Should be detailed to mind boggling detail in the seicento technical manual (in the downloads section).

The biggest problem is probably finding a decent wiring diagram of the Cinq for comparison. If the
For the most part the engine loom unplugs from everything else. So if you can get hold of a Mk1 engine side wiring diagram and a Sei (in car) wiring diagram (the Sei one is in the seicento technical manual in the Downloads section) label the wires and youll get there in the end. I spent the best part of a day just labelling the loom for my Canems ECU . Take it slow test everything use connector blocks if you like before eventually soldering and heat shrinking etc.
This is the oldest thread Ive ever seen revived. Still someone is using the search engine........ The seicento technical manual (its huge) is free to download from the Downloads section. Edit Missed Rallycinqs post
Replace as much as you can of the cable -- solder and heat shrink (to insulate). Wiring diagram in the seicento technical manual in the Downloads section. Alternator BTW should kick out more like 14.5v.
Lots of play obvious break. See the seicento technical manual Vol 1 Section 2 Gearbox.pdf
its the seicento technical manual in 3 parts you need. cantaffordaferrari thanked for this post

1 bolt through to bulkhead. Rest of the retention is down to latchesnotches which need no attention. May help to dislocate the indicator (held in place by a spring reached from the engine bay side) first. Humungous seicento technical manual available for nowt in the downloads section.
Quote Do you know of any guides to do it No but there is the seicento technical manual in the Downloads Library. Most important things are probably to empty the tank as much as possible before you do it and to use plenty of a real penetrating oil (Plus Gas GT-85 etc.) on the tank retaining bolts a few days before you start. Chances are theyll shear off if you do not.

righto update gave my little sei a full service went fine. but then... looking to adjust the clutch cable and the end of the cable to the gearbox arm but looked on the downloadable technical manual but i dont have either in fact i have got a weird nut and a bent piece of metal as a type of a lock nut i cant figure out a way to get the nut away from the bent piece of metal and loosen it a little bit unless i keep the gearbox arm in the depressed position allowing the nut away from the arm.(BTW record indicate the fiat dealership themselves replaced the clutch cable when the previous owner had it) just wondering if anybody else have had or know about this(pic included) Attached Thumbnails   __________________ Thanks Everybody Mat   Quote   03-05-2013   7 fingers99 Get Your Own Title   Join Date Mar 2006 Location Liverpool Posts 24901 Thanks 1068 Blog Entries 3 Trader Rating 5   Re seicento Sporting Returned from storage Photo isnt that clear but you adjust at the gearbox end.
There will be some exploded stuff in the seicento technical manual (in the downloads library). Or ePer (there are ones out there other than the forum one sometimes theyre less busy). But eurocarcare or FIAT should be able to produce just about any bolt or nut you want.
Its free for download in the downloads section Look for seicento technical manual.
Something silly Id think. From memory theres some diagnostics for it in the seicento technical manual (downloads library).
dribbleng out. Replace plug. Chances are that a big puddle of oil will start forming where the oil has drained out again through the inner CV joint gaitor. But we live in hope. Yep the noise sounds like gearbox on its way out. If the garage can find a good replacement fine. But many have met their early death through leaking seals. Weekly gearbox oil level checks are a good idea on 899s. The Sei technical
Which gearbox If wet shaft type its probably beyond economic repair anyway. The seals go the oil leaks out mechanical mayhem ensues. Neither the Sei technical manual or the Cinq factory manual (let alone the Haynes or Porter books) cover the gearbox in any detail. I have seen manuals for the dry and wet shaft boxes in Dutch and Polish but they are beyond the ability of Google Translate to render into
I dont mind paying for it. i have found one entirely in ITALIAN........ httpcgi.ebay.co.ukFiat-Cinquecen...QQcmdZViewItem but that doesnt help me much i did a search and all i found was some on saying go buy a haynes manual but im not so keen on them they never seem to cover what i am looking for and they are far to Generic before you tell me i dont know what im talking about........... im a technical
