Power Steering

My car has developed a power steering fault so now steering is very heavy. AA came out and stated vehicle is safe but they and two separate garages cannot confirm what the fault is and Halfords have said to go to fiat dealership but that could be a lot of money and I don't want to pay for new parts that are more valuable than my 2009 Fiat Punto Grande. Please see the diagnostic report provided by Halfords. Has anyone had similar issues and if so, can you provide some guidance... Read more ..read more

Can anyone recommend a water pump and timing belt kit please?

So my plan is to do the above on my daughters 1.2 8v 2007 punto grande and thought I'd found a good kit on ebay which is a Gates belt etc which I know are good. However, I wanted to clarify if it's got the auto tensioner or fixed tensioner for the belt. The ebay shop does 2 kits, ones a gates kit, ones a Borg & Beck kit who I've never heard of so dunno about quality but has the auto tensioner. My reason for asking for recommendations is that I'm getting nowhere with the seller which... Read more ..read more

Fiat Grande Punto 2008 rear left door not locking with central locking system

Hi everyone, I have a Fiat Grande Punto 2008 model and recently when I use the central locking system with the key remote, it locks all doors except for the rear left door. The rear left door can be opened even though all the other doors are locked. I noticed that if I put my ear over the lock of the rear left door, I can't hear the solenoid locking the door. I was able to fix the problem temporarily by unplugging the big electrical connector (for 30 seconds) located between the front... Read more ..read more

The driver side buttons don't work. Both passenger and driver windows do not operate. The passenger window operates on the passenger side, and stops working when I disconnect the connector from the driver side buttons. The mirror controls still work. The window control lights on the driver side lights are NOT illuminated like the mirror controls and the passenger side controls ..read more

Car seat won't lock in place

The passenger chair in my GP won't lock into place, it slides up and down, so I got it off today to try and fix it. The teeth lock in place on one side but not the other, and while in situ this doesn't hold the car in place. The bar is meant to pull up an inch or so, but mine doesn't move enough. I just don't understand the locking mechanism. Anybody got any ideas ..read more

Hi all, so running lights are flashing dimly when Left indicator is on, plus indicator not always working anyway :-( Also, the brake light (dual filament bulb) also works intermittently. Driver side is spot on. So, I've cleaned up the connectors with a little sandpaper but still the same, feels like the spades in the connector block are loose too which I bet wont help :-( Think I'll get a new connector block anyway and replace that, but also need to find a bulbholder and ebays not being my...

Sense of satisfaction and an oddity on the rear lights.

So, this little base model punto 1.2 I bought for the daughter so she's not stranded without a car (long story) and I will "inherit" when they sort their new car - decided it needs a bit of tlc. So, yesterday I've done plugs, oil filter and oil change, air filter and replaced the broken rear reversing light unit. Its so nice to work on a nice straight forward engine, reminds me of my first car, a wee 1976 mini! Next step though, we've known there's an intermittent bulb warning, seems to...
