FIAT PANDA Front Suspension

Hello all Failed the MOT last week. Few more things than usual. Both front shocks have failed due to leaking fluid. I got new ones but they only seem to have the telescopic arm section (I am used to bikes where the mono shock came as a complete unit.) Does anyone know if you can buy the shock with the springs or are they seperate components Someone said I am having to go to a garage to get the old

FIAT PANDA Front SUspension Installation

Hi I have recenlty removed an engine from the panda. I needed to move the car so attempted to reattach the hubs to the body. Im having real trouble lining up both the front and rear arms. The rear one I can get in but there is no way of getting the front one in. And if I put the front one in first the rear one is at an angle where it wont fit into its housing. Does anybody know of a knack to do this Cheers in advance

Loosen the two bolts on the bracket where they fix together put the tie bar in first but dont tighten the nut yetthen you should have plenty of movement to get the track control arm into its housing.

I have a 2004 panda 1.1 active.

Just replaced OSF control arm (or wishbone) on 2004 panda Active (MOT failure due to ball joint - DANGEROUS). Anyone know what the correct torque settings are for the two subframe bolts and the ball joint spigot clamp Or any clues as to where I might find them Thanks.

FIAT PANDA Front tyre wear on inner edges

Hi found this forum when looking for info on the thread title fault. I see from the stickies the fault of excessive front tyre inner edge wear is a possible known fault with tracking. I noticed my wifes car which has now done 22000 miles was pulling to left during winter and since it was only just 1 year old at the time advised her to get the garage to check it out under warranty at that time. Unfortunately

myself (which will be to a higher standard than that done by a garage) and only letting them do a health check on the vehicle. Theyre not getting a penny more from me than is absolutely necessary Personally I dont feel theres an issue with the design of the wishbones. The bushes can be bought seperately so if the bushes do go then you dont need to replace the whole wishbone - httpseekpart24.comfiatpanda-169...stening-100572

FIAT PANDA Knackered suspension

Last week I helped a friend recover his broken-down Ford Maverick driving his diesel panda back. I was impressed by how the engine ran but the suspension was completely shot. The car has only done 80 000 miles both shock absorbers and the anti-roll bar links were worn out and going by the vagueness of the steering other things were amiss as well. I have never liked the general design of the suspension

at 140k the rest of the suspension & steering lasted the life of the car. My Ford Ka managed 101k with just one front wishbone my Suzuki Van 117k needed nothing at all. Notice the pattern here Those manufacturers dont get their suspension components from the Leerdammer factory A couple of links for those who want decent suspension bits for pandas......

FIAT PANDA Suspension question please.

The panda front suspension pillar appears visibly identical for the 4X2 and 4X4 models. However they are different. Can anyone please advise what the diference is Thanks.

However that would involve changing quite a few front suspension parts for very little gain. I think fiat just took the easy option and fitted a longer spring.

braking but the front just grips and grips seeimngly under no stress at all.. on the whole i prefer them and do see them as a step forward over the f1s and i expect ill be able to bring even more out of them with the revised suspension im planning. However that being said looking at the car as a total package in terms of its suspension ability and braking i think the f1s were a spot on choice by fiat

FIAT PANDA Panda Classic Suspension

Hello boys and girls Whilst restoring my 1994 1000i panda I have noticed that the ol girl could do with new suspension bushes rear springs and the rear bump stops Anybody know where I can get my hands on this selection of rocking horse poop Or if there is much of a compatability with other fiat models like the siecento cinqicento punto or uno (coil sprung all round) Much appreciate any help getting Lazarus back on the road where she should be

There is no compatability between pandas and CinqsSeicentos Im afraid. I have new track control arms and front ball jointcarriers if you need them.

Always interesting to see how the older pandas are getting on. Ours is only 70k miles behind you so theres money to be spent on it in the future for sure. As we intend to keep ours for a while I might just buy a set of arms track rod ends drop links and any other consumables in the front end. I suspect buying from shop4parts in advance is far cheaper than having to get bits sourced on the day.

FIAT PANDA noisy suspension

Ive started to notice a bit of creaking in the front suspension [probably something to do with flying over 20 mph speedbumps every day ]. Ive tried to wd40 the pivoting bit where the lower sus arm joins the body but little effect and fear the rubbers() in there must be totally shot. Any idea where to get new ones (its definitely something to do with LS as could feel the creaks on the tie rod when jacking up) thanks b

FIAT 500 II Front top suspension mounts

Took the fiat 500 to willenhall fiat as the mileage was flashing the other day (only did it once) and I read on here its best to get it checked out. Took them 3 hours Then told me pads need changing front suspension mounts are perished and tyres need changing. (pads look fine and tyres IMHO look legal) Anyway are top suspension mounts not covered under warranty Thanks

hi again not the sort of thing ive ever had to deal with before but my front wiper started drifting across the screen like it was losing traction with the pivot over the last few days... pushing it back cured it temporarily but now its not moving at all (motor sounds fine).

FIAT PANDA Suspension

With the engine all but done Im now turning my attention to the suspension. My first task is to change the bushes in the radius arms does anyone know where I can purchase these from Thank you

Took one of the arms off today and the bush shown in the link appears to be for the rear which isnt the problem. Its the larger front bush that needs replacing (see image).

FIAT PANDA Rear Suspension

Posted on behalf of Kieth Oldfield Can you replace the bushes in the rear suspension without going to fiat for a new Omega bar Regards Keith

It is a metal central tube bonded ( specialized industrial process ) into a rubber bush which is in turn bonded into an outer metal housing. This assy is then welded to the front of the Omega arm at manufacture. What is the problem with the bearing Have never heard of one of these failing before. Rgds.

FIAT PANDA Suspension Mods

Another does any one know I want to lift the suspension between 1 to 2 inches on my 1989 4x4 panda i know of a crude cut extend and weld method for the rear and fitting a 1 inch spacer to the top of the front struts This causes the front steering to do wierd things in reverse so want to see if theres a better way. Again cheers Lee

Originally Posted by Alan.D Only thing that springs to mind is spacers on the shock mounts & leaf springs. Someone looked at manufacturing a spacer a while back if you have a search. That was me. You can safely lift about 20mm with a spacer under the front springs. This keeps a reasonably sane camber. If you space the struts down you will have problems with huge camber and the driveshafts will bind

FIAT PANDA Uneven tyre wear

I have just noticed the problem because the OS front wheel started to squeal when I turned to the right I also felt that the car tended to skip when going

Pot holes and traffic claming measure can damage the suspension bushes particular the control arms (wishbones) bushes that attach it to the chassis causing annoying knocking but also adding to the negative camber as these determine the distance of the lower part of the wheels in relation to the chassis. I have to admit heres where fiats

FIAT PANDA I 141A 141 1988 Panda had no radio aerial as standard

The old broken radio aerial problem again. - (Original Thread) A guy at fiat parts told me after 2 hours with this photo and the year of my car called me back and said that the aerial was not a fiat part but fitted by a 3rd party company which he is not aware of. Therefore fiat cannot supply a part for it. Was he talking rubbish Also asked it the panda was a 4x4. Whatever that had to do with it....

fiat dealers in the UK always seem in denial about any parts existing for the older pandas the best approach is to go armed with parts numbers thats all they seem to understand I wanted a load of front suspension rubbers which they claimed they wouldnt have they looked slightly sheepish when I turned up with a load of part numbers either that or go the ebay route or contact ricambio. Good luck
