You can replace the gaitors and track rod ends. On older racks you could fit shims to the rack to tighten up the free play. However on modern racks you need to take of the rack to recondition it. Sorry I could not be of more help.

SOURCE: i have bought an engine for my fiat punto 53 plate

hi, the engine you have brought should fit as most of them will fit even if the cc is different so i wouldnt worry to much about it.

The only thing you would have a problem with is if your engine is petrol and they send you a diesel engine.

As long as its the same fuel it wont matter to much if its a bigger cc engine then it will have more power and less if the engine was smaller but they will all fit into your car so i wouldnt worry to much. Even if the engine was out of a car 2 years older than yours or 2 or 3 years newer as they are all the same.

Just make sure you get some sort of warranty because you are buying from a scrap yard they havnt been driving the car around its just come into the scrap yard and they take it that the engine is fine so once fitted check for any noises or oil leaks etc.

You will also need to put your gearbox off your engine onto the new engine as the new one is from a scrap yard it might have the clutch and pressure plate still attatched to teh new engine as this is not a part inside the gearbox but attatched to the engine so if your car had no problems with the clutch then make sure you change this over from your engine onto the new engine.

Also make sure you give the new engine a full service change oil and filter etc.

Also worth doing is once the car is running buy a fuel cleaner that you put into the fuel tank this will then run through the fuel system cleaning all the injectors as the chances are the car has been sitting for a while and may have got bunged up slightly.
Make sure you buy the correct fuel cleaner that goes into the tank ie petrol or diesel ok.

Let me know if you need further assistance ok.

SOURCE: fitting a wing mirror on the passenger side of a fiat punto

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Car wont start when turn on all dash lights up but whinning noise when turning ignition

Probably the starter motor has failed, but try cleaning the battery terminals first and check there is still more than 11v at the battery when you try to start the engine, it could be a dead cell in the battery

New starter fitted but still fails to start unless with push

A garage told you that it was the starter motor which was replaced.. and then suggested the ignition switch? That's not much of a garage..

Those symptoms are indicative of a solenoid/relay/switch fault. But how do you find out which? Though to be honest, ignition switch (key) failures are actually quite rare.

The truth is you can spend a lot of time and money replacing parts and finding that nothing cures the problem. You've already paid for a new starter which didn't cure the problem..

Seriously - give an auto electrician a call. Or a mobile mechanic. Let them identify the fault (and they usually do..). You'll get a lot of 'could be' advice which may cost you a lot in replacement parts and not fix things. Give an auto electrician or mobile mechanic a call.

Fiat punto 1.2i after starting the car and driving when i park up turn the car off it wont start

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

If you hear a clicking you still might not have enough battery power to start it.

Oil leak on a fiat punto 2001 1.2

Clean the engine block with a compressor and find out where the oil is coming from.
If there is no leak, and motor stays clean, then the oil is being combusted inside the engine, and you should get black smoke from exhaust. In this case it is time to a major repair to the engine.

03 punto when turn key starter motor clicks after few times motor gets warm is it easy to remove will it just need cleaning and refitting

You may as well get a reconditioned starter as the best cheap option. The main thing though is to disconnect the battery before tackling the removel of the starter motor. As for the removel of the starter motor, if you approach the job in a logical manner then it should not present too many problems. Look at the position of the starter motor and the securing bolts (these bolts will be tight) and look at the access you have to work in and remove the starter. Wire brush the threads of the bolts before refitting.
