FIAT PANDA Clutch or Brake Problem Help

i recently replaced my front disc and pads on an 08 panda with 28000 miles replaced them with brembo parts nowafter 1200 miles the car has started to make what sounds and feels like grinding when i pull up. i have had both front whells off and had a look and all the brake parts are fine no excesive ware etc. so now i have also noticed a faint whistle liek to bits of metal catching when i depress the

The noise that disappears when the clutch is depressed comes from the gearbox and is not a clutch fault. It is probably not significant but may indicate that the gearbox oil level is a bit low. This is fairly easily checked but you will need to search this section of the forum for details as I have no pictures to post. If you have a panda with rear disc brakes then I suspect the noise on braking comes

FIAT PANDA Fiat Panda 1.3 JTD clutch upgrade

Hi Does anyone know of an existing clutch upgrade for the 70BHP 1.3 JTD I had my panda re-mapped and after a month or two i noticed that when I floor the car and the revs hit 2100 rpm in 3 & 4 th gear clutch slips and the revs just jump to 2500 rpm. I wanna get a head start for searching for a possible upgrade before the clutch falls apart. Does the 70BHP JTD use a Dual Mass Flywheel

The car is a LHD 2003 model with less than 120.000km on the clock. I am guessing the clutch is still the OEM item. I bought it when it had about 110.000km on it and my EGR died and it caused me a lot of problems. The car wouldnt start loss of power etc... So I decided that instead of changing the EGR I got the car remapped and the EGR was disabled in the ECU and some more power was unleashed. The power increase is noticeable But of course we are talking about a 1300cc diesel engine so we are not discussing huge numbers MPG remained more or less the same as before if I drive normally and if I push it the fuel consumption is a bit HIGHER. This was done by a professional is not a chinese chip. So nobody knows if any of the OEM fiat pressure plates made for the stronger engines will fit

That big chunk is now sitting on the jack... er and the tie rod. Terrifying as it starts to lower - but that tie rod will have to be disconnected. You also have to remove the mounting bracket - not just disconnect the mounting as the transmission cant be moved sufficiently away from the engine to lower otherwise. Getting a fair collection of nuts and bolts... hope I can remember where they all go

I reckon itll come down with tie bar (radius rod) just loosened on lower arm and disconnected at front and pushed aside under wheel arch Attached Thumbnails   __________________ Anything is possible with a panda Ellen - 87 Ducato 2.5D Elddis Autoking 630CK Lucy - 90 panda 1000s Rachel - 95 panda 1.0 CLX SR Ruth - 90 panda 4x4 SR   Quote   03-10-2013   17 lightweightmick Get Your Own

FIAT PANDA Sticking Clutch

clutch keeps sticking down on our (Classic) panda Dance also bizzarly its doing it on our (New) panda Active too. Is this a cable problem or something in the mechanism.

Could be the cable but its also quite common for the clutch lever to seize in the casing. You will need to disconnect the cable at the gearbox end and try both bits independently. If its the cable its an easy fix just fit a new one. If its the lever you may be able to free it up by spraying with WD40 and working it backwards and forwards with a lever. If you can free it off enough to be driveable using

lubricant safe to be use on rubber and nylon to un-seize clutch release shaft and the bush WD40 will react with rubber o-ring seal which seats in groove just above nylon bush.( refer to photo - normally bush seats at the top of the shaft) edit ps. dont go to far whit spraying in you dont want to get any wd40 lubricant on to cluch assembly.

FIAT PANDA Clutch release lever question

Managed to get a cable and get it fited by father in law but he tells me that it wont reach the clutch release lever arm It is definately the correct cable. there is giggle room on the lever so it is not jammed or seized. I can not work out how much pressure there should be from here. So to

Yes I believe so.... well at least now I do. The later ones have the metal sleeve to create nice bend and two bolts to the pedal box. The early ones have the white plastic twist fit and locking plate (discussed in other threads) and appear to be at least one inch shorter than the middle group. The middle group have no sleeve white twist end instead and longer than old ones. Perhaps some kind soul would put up a post with all part nos as it seems that clutch cables are consumables when it comes to pandas and I have failed and suceeded only in confusing the situation more it seems.

Got hold of an eLearn disc for the panda and having had a look through the gearbox removal section it doesnt seem that bad a job to do - no need to drain the gear oil (though a change probably wouldnt do any harm anyway) no need to get the hub nuts off no subframes in the way etc. Just strip off the battery air intakes etc disconnect all the linkages wiring and driveshafts and drop it out I know it

FIAT PANDA Diesel tuning box clutch slip (

My apologies late in reading this thread I fitted a tuning box at Christmas (four months ago) and immediately noticed much improved performance PLUS better fuel economy. Obviously not economy if I drove flat out all the time....

From what I have read on the forum this is probably due to clutch pressure plate finger wear and the solution is a new clutch. I have just bought a clutch and before I tear into it has anyone removed a Dualogic box and

FIAT PANDA Squeeling clutch

Hi all I just bought a panda 4x4 which drives fine except that the clutch squeels if you slip it a bit when changing up gears.

If you dont touch the accelerator and just lift the clutch its fine. Any idea why its doing this Ta Yak

Rusty is looking a bit tatty now corroded tailgate bonnet doors and it was painted with cheep tractor paint. So the plan its at some point to repainted it. My dad when I was about 11 bought his second panda but the first I remember. He did have a mk1 when I was very young. Anyway the one I remember was a grey sergio tacchini. So my plan with rusty is to make him in to a ST replica as best I can within reason so il need to find out the paint code. Iv already bought the decals from Italy and found a rear badge on eBay. I would like to replace the trim with green but this may not be possible due to how rare these are so il make do with what is available. Iv got a good bonnet and tailgate and plan to sort out the door bottoms as they rant to bad A quick pic off Google for those that havent seen one before This will not be an accurate replica as I would like to keep the 4x4 side trims and rear badge so maybe some sort of ST 4x4 hybrid. __________________   Quote   19-01-2014   10 rustypanda From Scrap yard to road   Join Date Apr 2008 Location Colyford Devon Posts 208 Thanks 6 Trader Rating 0   Re Rusty the lucky panda The heater in rusty is so poor and with my wife dressed up like shes going sking to keep warm when we take rusty out I thought it about time I investigated the issue.

Ive read a few reports of people having to have the clutch replaced before even 20K miles on a bone stock MJ. On the other hand Ive got 55K km on mine with the original clutch and not even a hint of slipping. In either case dont be sloppy with the clutch or youll kill it within a few thousand miles. Fraguzz has posted a bit about a tuned MJ I think hes up to 105hp(115) or so and according to him theres a very definite limit to how much torque the stock clutch can hold so he fitted an aftermarket unit. YMMV. Youre right though my philosophy is not to keep cars beyond too many miles and drive them like they were stolen. And never to have them serviced. You can probably only get away with this on Polish built fiats since the 3 cinqs 500 and 7 Seicentos testify. NEVER buy a car I have owned.

FIAT PANDA Brake Pad Wear 1.3 Multijet Sporting

Hi All My father who is not the most demon driver in the world has just picked up his panda from Ancaster in Welling after a service. Low mileage 2nd year - 11000 miles. They have changed the front pads stating they were thin. I reckon this is complete bolloks and am going to speak to the service manager tomorrow. There is no way my old man could wear out a set of pads in 11K if he tried My Punto 1.9

My MJT started making slight rubbing noises from the front brakes about a week (100 miles) before its 24K service. The day before it became a grinding noise. Oops I think you can work out what that meant. The pads on the nearside had worn down to the rivets and badly scored the disc. I made an appeal to fiat more in hope than expectation. It was declined. I must admit I was very surprised by how quickly

Hi guys I know much has been discussed about how the sport button in the 100HP actually functions seemingly most say it just adjusts throttle position - someone at work made a point I tried out yesterday though pressing the sport button at idle - this made no difference to my revs. Surely this must mean that the throttle wasnt opened so something else must go on I know I hate driving the car without

heel and toe. The only thing that concerns me is that when slowing down I tend to do down through the box as well as barke is this really that bad for the carengineclutch Surely the engineclutch is designed to take such loads. Any insite would be more then helpful. The slightly pedantic answer would be that brake pads discs are expensive but significantly cheaper than a clutch or gearbox... The pandas
