Was it the case that this type of handle was fitted on the panda 30s and then discontinued by fiat - or - was this type of handle produced by a pattern manufacturer and marketed as being for panda or Seat Marbella Thank you. Petel

Many thanks Aca for the confirmation. Rgds Petel
You arent alone the same thing happens with mine Ive took the whole thing apart and wd40d the hell out of everything in an attempt to free something and then did a little investigating. The lock mehcanism itself which is at the side of the door doesnt fully flip up when you use the handle so ive come to the conclusion that maybe a spring has snapped somewhere on the door mechanism itself. Maybe one

Originally Posted by blupanda You arent alone the same thing happens with mine Maybe one day i will replace it but for now ive got a little tip to stop you having to keep leaning over to let passengers in...... Unlock the car and then get your passenger to give the door a quick push inwards and it just disengages the mechanism enough to be able to open the door with the exterior handle. FANTASTIC That

turning and was simmilar to a squeek. The difference in them is clear. If the Driveshaft or CV joint had gone or was on the way it would grate more than squeek so I doubt that is your problem As for the anti-rattle clips no you dont need them but they can rattle that much you think the bearing is going to fall off they can get that loud. You can buy a kit with the clips for a pound or two from fiat
mechanism... I have no idea if the wiper mechanism is placed on the left (if looking from the front of the car) of the engine bay or the UK right side... i suspect a part can be sourced easily if you require a Euro spec part...

1990 G reg (G57 MSA) fiat panda Bella. Its a 900cc (chain driven). 4 speed gearbox. Bright red (well it will be again after i t cut it). If you send me an email address i can send you some pics. cant seem to upload them on this... Mechanically it seems to be in great condition with only 54000 miles on it. Bodily it is fairly tidy with the exception of the doors. The lower doors (as with all pandas)

You could see the front discs still glowing red hot from about 20 yards away.....On reflection its probably best not to wonder just throw up the odd prayer now and again Most Easterly pandas liked this post
Thanks for the advice everyone. My first reply looks a bit dim Petel but it was made before the edit Im not sure Im quite ready to tackle this yet - my existing doors are going but not quite gone. maybe I should wait to find some the right colour but the right colour with holes in would be like trying to find the Holy Grail... A little rumination I think This is a really dim question but I have been
The plastic pegs are still available from fiat if you are dead stuck I bought aload just incase. The plastic trim is best pushed forward with the palme of you hand and I found better with the door part open so trim does not bump into front small plastic trim Originally Posted by Bougainvillea Rosso Thanks for the advice everyone.

When I try to drive it in 2WD the front wheels dont turn and it is very noisy. Does anyone know what is wrong
Essentially I had 2 problems 1) the key slider mechanism broke out of the door lock and 2) the catch inside the door was not functioning the interior lock would not budge (door closed). With the mechanism out it was clear that the catch had 3 positions open clamped and locked. Even manually locking it I could not get it to unlock with the level normally connected to the interior lock until some wd40
Tony good evening To replace a door lock is a few minutes of a job. 1. Remove the window winder ( ensuring that the window is in the up position) and interior door handle. 2. Remove the door panel. 3. Put your hand up inside the door until you find the door lock. Feel around till you locate the barrel that comes through the door. If you feel around you will find a sharp-feeling piece of metal at the

the fiat ones just stick on but they only sell front ones
I painted up the bottom spring seat in awesome gun metal and push fit a locating peg through one of the existing drain holes Quick dry run to check it all fits ok And the moment of truth .... All fits perfectly will go for a test drive shortly but the main thing is the ride height is now perfectly level Couldnt be any more pleased with the outcome. In fact I am glad I couldnt find the genuine fiat
Tweeters arent standard unless you opt for them on the 6 speaker upgrade. Another tip choose the mounting position for the cross over carefully there is room to mount it on top of the foam in the front doors (may differ by manufacturer) the rears are more tricky speaker adapters for the front main speaker are available from www.bluespot.co.uk I cut out the paper rear speakers and used a dremel to smooth the aperture and fit the new speakers (saves another set of adaptors)
The doors really are a pain - I have also been unable to stop the return of the little bubbles despite two years of zinc treatment and liberal paint application. The combination of thin metal - and watersalt attack from all sides appear too much for a DIY repair. The damn window drainage arrangement leaves the slightest vulnerable area no chance. Perhaps with a kiln and more skill I could do it I had

probably wear on the hinge pins. Try and lift the door when its open and youll probably feel some play on them. If its just hanging wonky I think you can adjust a little bit on the bottom hinge pull out the rubber bung behind the front wheelarch to get access to the securing bolts. (Correct me if Im wrong there chaps last time I was in at that hinge I was just whipping a door off with no immediate intention of reattaching it)
my locks in both front doors had clicking sounds whenever I accelerated or braked but it was fixed but later a new clicking sound appeared this time it is based on bumps and the garage said it could not fix it as it is fastened to the max already could your method help my problem
My speakers are on the dash they do take up a bit of room and I still havent got them wired They decorative items at the minute. Im busy collecting parts for the Sisley at the minute. Its stripped right down I must take photos so I can see what needs done. Im getting a clutch from another forum member later this week Im also going to see a chap in Lisburn that has a stock of panels and bits and bobs.
They look quite smart What are the little white dots on them are they screws to hold them in. I have mine up at the front of the cabin on the part of the door where the wingmirror adjuster would be (if mine had manual windows).
I have a mk1SEAT Marbella door skin also a front cross member is it the rectangle shape you are after is there any difference between mk1 and mk2 crossmember
In the instructions book of my panda they wrote that the windows can still be engaged for 30 sec. after the engine is turned off. Beside this I found out that they will not work after a door is opened.
This look like a 100 hp front fender. Apparently there are a lot of holes needed for the mounting of the plastic arches. Does that also mean there are holes in the rear wheel arche and below the doors to fit those parts.
