The main issue is the clutch. It has had new clutch, slave and master cylinders. The pedal is no stiffer than I remember my old one being but the biting point is very low and it is hard to put in and out of gear. Does it need bleeding?
There is a wobble in the steering at low speeds. This car passed an MOT Wednesday and it has had new springs etc for it, I believe the MOT is genuine, so I feel it is not any bushes etc that would have failed, as more expensive work has been undertaken. Could it be an out of shape tyre? This car does look like it may have been sat. Have driven it 200 miles today and wobble was not apparent at speed, though was vibration at around 70 (suspect wheel balancing is out)
The Off Side front engine mounting seems to be split, how easy is this as a DIY fit?
Possible Thermostat replacement needed, in dash temp gauge rarely moved above a quarter. Engine did seem to warm quickly though. The IPK (Instrument pack (IPK from the German)) is knackered however, thankfully already have a new one on the way due to 999999 fault.
The reverse sensors are clicking away merrily but I have no sounds inside the car. There are signs of water getting into the rear off side quarter. What should I check?
I have connected the SatNav unit and it seems to be searching for a disc, however when I press eject, no disc is ejected. Is there a way for me to check if there is a disc in there, other than through the head unit? Also is a black multiplug which is not connected to anything, which appears to be attached to the GPS aerial coonection. I can't see anthing it would attach to.
I should point out the car has High Line Nav and Harman Kardon. TV, radio and CD mulltichanger all working fine.
Seems I have picked up a bit of a project, which wasn't the plan.
