FIAT MULTIPLA Rear Wheel noise not bearing.

Hi My 03 JTD has a throbbing noise from the rear drivers side wheel. I suspected a bearing replaced this ( hub nut done up tight using 2 bar on rachet for leverage). How tight do these things need to be cant find a torque setting The noise is exactly the same I did notice that the brakes slightly rub on one part of the disc. Could this be the cause of the noise I always thought that warped discs were a myth Help Thanks Simon

Are you sure you have the correct nut from fiat I changed many of them and theres always room to dent them You can reuse the old nuts once if necessary and hit a new dent in them and do use some Loctite as I mentioned before. As for the cupped tires what sometimes helps is to increase the air pressure in the rear tires and of course change front and rear at least once a year Some people may say worn

FIAT MULTIPLA Replacing rear springs

Im considering my second foray into the world of DIY mechanics having changed a track rod end without a front suspension collapse Im obviously F1 pit lane material................ Anyway is it as simple as it a) appears and b) everyone Ive spoken to tells me i.e. up on axle stands wheel off jack under trailing arm to stop it dropping undo bottom bolt on shock absorber lower trailing arm on jack until

Thought Id post an update........... Fitted new springs and shocks thought Id treat the old bucket as the springs were original with 152k on them and the shocks at least 3 years old and as the roads are so crap that the toll on my suspension is becoming horrific I reckoned in for a penny etc. Anyway its not quite as straight forward as the you tube videos I watched on other cars as the springs are

Lets just hope the front shocks are easy to drop.

rear shocks are cheap my old alfa 155 uses the same rear shocks as the multi so i kept the spares when i sold it fronts are a different matter.

FIAT MULTIPLA Knocking maybe from rear

Hi all. Myrtle has immediately started to misbehave now that her Warranty has expired. She is knocking at low speeds. It sounds like it is coming from the rear but I am not sure. Could it be wear in the anti-roll bar bushes with the noise travelling through the car I have jacked up the rear and levered the wheels up and down but I cant recreate the noise. Odd. While buggering about I noticed that the

Local indy looked at it this afternoon. rear shock absorber lower bushes both clattering away Dont know how I missed it when I looked. Went for two new shocks in the end. Ones a bit misty anyway so having both replaced on wednesday. Could do it myself but have run out of time now. Will report back after the job is done to confirm noise has gone. What a relief. Really thought it was going to be subframe bushes.

Ha ha Just come back from having the rear shockers replaced and the vast array of rattling and knocking noises I was getting have completely gone Also she feels tighter at the rear and now essentially feels like a new car again. Really pleased. So to recap before blaming ARB bushes drop links or subframe mounts just wiggle your rear shocks and see if they clunk. Could be them instead. Thanks to all who replied. All useful stuff.

FIAT MULTIPLA rear swing arm bearings.

Im going to attempt to do them myself as i would rather not get shafted by a garage. i bought a kit off ebay for a reasonable amount (i think anyway) and plan on doing it this week just waiting for my sping compressors to arrive then hey ho is there any ways to make it easier or things i should look for whilst doing it Already done front wishbones and drop links and rear shocks...and rear brake pads.

FIAT MULTIPLA Slight groan from rear suspension

rear suspension groans a bit when say coming out off a petrol station onto the road(off a path)...or when a front wheel goes over a ramp. All my rear bushings are like new...its always done this...even before i did subframe rebuild...its a really CROAKY kinda groan Anyone else bothered by this Would love to resolve this as ive a pretty smooth multi otherwise But not sure what it might be...it may even

FIAT MULTIPLA rear shockers

had a search on this site but i cant find a guide on how to change the nearside shock absorber. basically what i wanna know is can it all be done underneath the car or do i have to strip down the interiour as well

Should all be from outside there could be a bolt inside the boot area not sure but rear shocks are allways easy . Just unbolt the lower mount with the car on stands let the arm swing down then undo the upper. If its like the alfas which it prob is then be carefull with the upper bolt as its prob behind a rubber bung inside the rear arch and when undoing they tend to drop down into the abyss forever being a rattle so something sticky in the socket should help.

FIAT MULTIPLA Multipla rear sub frame mot failure need replacement

Hi GuysGals Garage has just informed me that the rear subframe has failed the mot. Bit suprised as it has less than 80000 on the clock Been told that it will need replacing yet to get a cost. Any ideas on cost of replacement avaliability etc 2nd hand components would be a great help. Sorry ment to say its a 53 plate1.6.

FIAT MULTIPLA why buy a multipla

hello thinking about buying a multipla anybody out there with advice what to look for. any does or donts are parts expensivewhat mpg are they worth buying.

Another view I have owned two multiplas both bought secondhand a 2000 1.9JTD (sold on with 160k miles) which last year was changed for a 2006 1.9 multijet eleganza (today 48k miles).

I do a lot of my own maintenance. They

FIAT MULTIPLA MOT failure

just a quick couple o questions need a simple answer so i can decide exactly what i need to buy can u replace a rubber bush in the rear shocker or is it a replacement part can u replace the bush in the front wishbone or is it just a new part. does anyone have a link to replacing the wishbone cheers in advance

im just gonna buy a new wishbone for the mot as for rear shocks the failure sheer says nearside rear shock absorber has an excessivelly worn rubber bush. does this mean i need a new shocker think this has happened from replacing rear trailing arm as i bolted shocker bac on without the washer and buckled the rubber. any help here cheers jtdman u always seem to have tha answer

ive got a whole rear axle in the back shed so hopefully at least one shock will be good thats where im gonna get my rear wheel bearing from as well. are the shocks easy to take off i know the bottom part is easy but hows it connected at the top also is the wishbone secific to the multi or is there another fiat model or alfa with the same part

FIAT MULTIPLA Knocking (again)

I bought my multipla about 3 weeks ago - 53 plate 73000 miles FSH so Im more than happy with that. (My last 2litlre diesel did 180000 miles so 73 serviced miles should be no probs). Car drives very nicely - except for this frustrating knocking. I have searched this and other sources for information and decided that it would be the drop links from the anti roll bar. These were chaged with a struggle

my jtd is a 51 plate and has done 112000 serviced and relativley fault free apart from the knocking issues rear wheel bearings maf sensornew rear drums handbrake cables replaced As for knocking issues we now effectivley have a new front end on the car fiat replaced front springs in the recent recall (altough they never did contact me) in doing so they damaged osf shock mounting so ended up replacing

FIAT MULTIPLA Front Anti Roll Bar etc

Hi The Multi has developed a clunk from the front end at least I think its from the front but my wife thinks its from the back I suspect the ARB bushes and drop links I have ordered the bushes on eBay from Portugal and the drop links from a factor here in France. How easy or difficult is it to get at the bushes and change them Is it best to remove the ARB I would prefer to do the job in situ if possible. Thanks for any info.

No front end damage. I just decided to renew as much of the front and rear end as I could last year (August). Its all in the rebuild thread I posted on here around that time. Looks good but doesnt cost that much to do because multipla parts are cheap BTW those Bilstein shocks are very good - well worth the money.

FIAT MULTIPLA Multipla Suspensionride quality.

Hi all After having read a few recent posts about shock absorber top kits I was thinking about the quality of ride with the multipla. The multiplas do seem to be a bit hardfirm. Assuming all suspension components aint knackered.......just well used Out of interest I wondered what single component you would replace to improve soften the ride quality. Replace all coil springs only or all shock absorbers

Both really the shocks control the rate that they rebound but if springs are poor the the return is going to be slower. Eibach allways been a favoured spring but unsure if they make them for the multi i think novitec do. The shock absorbers may not be listed either for the multi but other cars use the same like ive got a set of rears which i bought for my Alfa 155 q4 but just happen to fit the multi as well .

FIAT MULTIPLA II 2 years in

Ive had the uglybug for 2 years now so I thought Id muse a little on what its been like so far. I bought it because I needed the space on a very tight budget. The only options were Multi a French MPV or an old Korean brand. I thought that the fiat would be the best option. If youre going to buy something unreliable you may as well go for style first... Good Points SPACE I like the looks. The first

FIAT MULTIPLA Your Thoughts on a Late Plate Multipla Mjet

Hi Normally reside in either the Stilo or Croma forum but I may consider in next 6 months to replace my Stilo Multiwagon JTD for a late plate multipla Mjet from 200808 plate onwards. Despite the Stilo issues that are encountered with ownership any thoughts other than Stilo issues that I need to know before purchasing a multipla andor on a mechanical and electrical wave length are they better than a Stilo MW

FIAT MULTIPLA Air con re-charging

Im toying with the idea of getting the air con re-gassed n my 04 multi. Anyone done it my slight concern is a seal or something similar going as the cars 9 years old and has 152k on it the air con is definitely not as efficient as it was. If Im likely to end up blowing something Ill leave it..........

FIAT MULTIPLA Undercarriage overhaul.

Our 2001 1.9 JTD of 118k miles is in need of some TLC on the suspension. Ive ordered some poly ARB bushes as packing and nail tricks no longer work the drop links were replaced for the 3rd time back in Sept. Visible inspection of front wishbones seem to be OK but thinking these may need doing. I am however getting a different sounding knocking from the rear (side undetermined). Its more metallic in

I dont know if the fittings vary from model to model but the rear box on mine is held in place by a very thick rubber band through which a metal hook attached to the rear box goes and another one welded to the rear underside of the car near the bumper. All I did was spray some WD40 on the rubber where the metal hook passes through in order to lubricate it and then just wiggle it off leaving it attached

FIAT MULTIPLA Au revoir et merci

Ive succumbed and gone to the dark side Multi has gone and its now a Citroen C4GP 1.6THP. SWMBO (and I) were seduced by the Santa Fe courtesy car when the Multi had its recent accident. Although a Santa Fe was overkill the idea of a newer more refined car took seed and grew. I was going to buy a trailer as we need more space anyway we already have a 400 litre roof box which isnt quite enough for family

Marty got most of my knowledge from here and then topped it up by getting my hands dirty plenty of opportunity for that if youre a Multi owner Multis are a paradox as theyre both a blessing and a curse great design great engine (diesel) let down by the frangible trim and under-engineered suspension components. On a 77k miler Id replaced both front wishbones front discs drop-links ARB bushes trailing

FIAT MULTIPLA How long can absorber last

i have change my absorbers (all four) once i.e after three years of using from brand new than now after 3 years of using the car feel bumpy with multiple bounce if hit potholes or bumps. how long will it last actually i am only city driving. i seldom hear people complain or change so often. i am thinking to replace with adjustable absorber if the stock cannot last that long. 5 years is it reasonable

Three years is a short time for the absorbers Which brand did you put in My Multi 2001 130.000km shocks hasnt been changed. But the rear dont cope so well with speedbumps when riding with six adults.
