FIAT PANDA Door Card Removal

Noticed a small dent in the passengers door yesterday when giving the 100HP a wash so I have a PDR guy coming out to have a look at it next week. As they say time is money so to save time and money I was hoping to remove the door card for the guy. Does anyone know how this is done and how difficult a job it is Its the front passengers door. Any help would be great

FIAT PANDA Front carpet removal

Dynamic 1.2. Is removal of the front carpets a simple enough job and if so or even if not how do you go about it OK Ive not looked properly yet as I tend to only get the car at the end of the working day and its a roadside task but the evenings are lightening up nicely now. (They have to come out for drying as the drivers side is now giving off a lovely stench of rot gods bless the fiat dealers and their inability to find ((or give a stuff about finding)) a leak.)

Trimdoner got there before me -- I too was going to say you have to take everything else out first. However I wonder if you can do what I did with our Multipla when we had the same problem. I was able to remove just the kick trims at the bottom of the door openings and then could lift the edges of the carpets and blow a heater underneath. As DoctorChris says its not the carpet (thats polypropelyne

The recognised way to find a leak is to sit inside the car whilst someone fires a pressure washer at it. In your case this would mean firing the stream of water all around the drivers door under the floor onto the bulkhead and into the area below the windscreen. Probably best done with the carpet peeled back. Then you could go back to Mr. Smug the service manager and tell him where the leak is. If you are anywhere near Sunderland I can supply the pressure washer but you can sit in the car

Heh thats what Im about its either a very smallslow leak or.....they fixed it when they changed the door seal but the carpet hasnt dried out yet - although I dont go with that idea. Im trying to get the thing dry first so I can then do as you suggest give it a right good dousing and try to spot the ingress so I can go back and say See There it is look

Dash out front doors off (yes really) and remove the dash supporting bar cage. Bobs your uncle

I saw a panda in the dealers a couple of years back where they were removing the heater to replace the actuator used by the climate control (I suspect you have the same issue) I looked horrendous -- as MEP says both front doors completely removed and I seem to recall the front seats too. It really looks as if they start by putting the heater in the middle of the factory and then building the whole car around it

FIAT PANDA Dismantling the door

Does anybody know how to dismatle the front doors Is it as simple as removing a few screws and pulling off I remember my old Seicento was a bit fiddly and then I couldnt get the top bit off where it meets the window. When I was parked up at work somebody hit my car with something red which left a dent and some red paintplastic. Ive removed the paint but I am now left with a dent on my car which iswas

FIAT PANDA Headlining revamp.

Just gave the headlining on one of my pandas a makeover so thought it may be of use to some of you if I went through the stages. With mine I added a pattern at the same time as recovering it with new material if you just want to recover yours or maybe you only want to know how to remove it the following should still help. The headlining is made of quite soft fibreboard and will tear easily if you are

FIAT PANDA Panda Probs

Daughters new pandas driver seat has a broken weld in the framework The second fault only came to light when the sun hit the windscreen at a certain angle we at first thought it was scratches but it now looks like a flaw in the glass. SO MUCH FOR NEW CARS GETTING A PDI......... Cheers Ian

I found some plastic retainers loose behind the clutch operating arm rubber sleeve. Removing these did not help. 11 The unit suffers from a rough running when not on load from 50-65mph almost like dirty fuel. Beside that the car has impressed me so when I got rid of my Mondeo ST TDCI I only need a small car as my comute dropped from the 900 mile round trip to the office to 40 I got my own panda

traypower socket. The central trim around the gearstick is only held on with 4 nuts btw. Then put a cut into the carpet on the left hand side to hide the wires as they came out under the passenger seat. I used the rear most bolt of the centre trim as my grounding point after sanding a bit of the paint off. Quite a straight forward job really and no harder than changing the speakers on the panda.

FIAT PANDA Disc brakes

A while ago someone was asking about front brake pads and I meant to post some pictures. Rather than searching through to find which thread it was I shall post here. For those who dont know what their calipers look like then here they are. This is a brand new disc. The caliper mount requires the removal of the bottom bolt and it will swing (bash or lever) up wards out of the way. It isnt necessary
