If you or someone you know could fix them they are easy enough depending where it's leaking from is it from the pipes or calipers the calipers are easy enough to change goto a scrapyard and get one for around 10 to 15 pounds you and a friend could bleed the calipers
or you could buy
A self bleeding tool cheep enough so you could do it on your own.

SOURCE: 2006 fiat grande punto road/suspension & brake noise

If two different mechanics, including a fiat dealer, already put their hands on your car, there is not much that I can say.
This kind of noise are often caused by bad rotor discs or locking up brake pads, I assume that this had been previously checked and fixed .
about the steering rack problem, when the steering rack has troubles the noise is from the steering rack itself and from the front of the car, if you are sure the noise is from wheel check brakes, or, if the noise does not cohincide with braking, check the wheel bearings.
See here on common brake noises, cause and identifying them.
about "fiat would not allow any more work on this problem", that sounds a bit like rubbish, call Fiat in your country (put Fiat in google, then find support/ contact), and ask them about their policies. I do not think from description this has got to do with steering, unless you get the noise only when steering, nyou usually get also vibrations on steering wheel in this case.


If this had been useful do not forget to rate the solution appropriately.

Many thanks

SOURCE: oil leak in punto

The punto's suffer from porous sumps. The metal becomes thin and leaks oil. Although its not a difficult job to change, its a messy job. You have to draain all the oil out first, then remove all the bolts around the sump pan. If you are replacing the sump, its good practice to replace the gasket too.
The sump itself is not too expensive to purchase, and the job itself in a garage, shouldnt take any more than 2 hours.

SOURCE: Fiat Punto indicators

you need to change the flasher unit .... also check fuse # 24 on the fuse panel inside the vehicle. the flasher unit should be just under the dash on the steering wheel side... i have alot of information on that vehicle but i couldn't find where exactly the flasher unit is located.

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

Hi there, my car is 2002 fiat punto. when i hit the brake, there is a light sign coming on the dash board, which is a shape of light ball with a exclamatory mark in the middle, just wonder what problem is...


As per the manual this problem of Red circle with exclamation mark on car dash board belongs to problem in brake system.this is the indication to check the brake system. In the Fiat punto cars service manual it says as follows:-- Malfunction of the brake system.
Check break fluid, if that's not the problem
visit the dealer.
When it come up together with ABS light the ABS system needs to be checked.
--------------- Most probably this problem is due to low brake fluid.BUT if the problem is same after filling the brake fluid then the brake system wiring needs to be checked.its wiring's are getting short somewhere. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Break light/indicator light


Your indicator bulb has blown. If you replace the bulb, you would find it will go back to normal.
