Tailgate Issue

Hello

I'm sure all tailgates are the same. Can you loosen the bolts on the lock and move it a little to make it shut better... or loosen the bolts on the tailgate to move the 'loop' that goes in the lock?

new key help

Could be because it is new.

I have a new key and that get stuck in the door lock sometimes.

No sure what I would suggest to get it out other than gently turning/wiggling it while gently trying to pull it out.

Non starter

I believe the red 'button' in the fuel cut off should be pushed down. As above... pump should prime/run for a few seconds when the ignition is turned on. If not, check: Fuel cut off Fuel pump fuse If fuse has blown it's is almost guaranteed the pump will have failed - common issue when the pumps hav...

Help with parts

You will notice a lot of eBay sellers over price their items when they are out of stock so they don't have to end & remake the listings each time. I had my intercooler kit in my watch list for several months at over £600. I message them asking if the price was correct and they replied stating the it...

I have fitted 2 of those.. not on the same car! The first one I bought was all one piece and fitted great. For an 'aftermarket' item I was surprised at how well it fitted. The second one I recently fitted wasn't so nice. It came in 2 pieces with a clamped join in the middle and the overall fit was q...

Seats !! Help !!

As Red says, the seats are the same size and yes you will need to swap the pretensioners by removing the ones of your original seats and fitting them to the older/replacements. The earlier drivers seat had electric adjustment.. which you could wire it in if you wished but as for fitting in your car,...

Considering a Puma - do they *all* rust?

Looking at past posts about rust and my own experience.. it could be stated that the earlier/older Pumas actually rusted less than the later/newer ones. I had a 2002 Thunder and another 'non-edition' Puma of roughly the same age and they both rusted like nothing I've seen before. One of them had onl...

Budget Puma TURBO Project!!

I was told only max 6psi on stock internals and no decompression plate and use a fuel pressure regulator. Can't remember what rate the regulator is but I'm pretty sure the info is somewhere in this thread.

Everything else is stock.

It would certainly be a very good project to get your teeth in to.. more so if you are able to weld/fabricate.. although things like a custom turbo manifold are available 'off the shelf' if you don't mind paying a bit of a premium for the pleasure. If you chose parts carefully you can do it reasonab...

A/C question

To be honest it depends on how much 'grief' you want doing it :o) I'm pretty sure the non-A/C cars have the power steering pump in a different location, so that and all the pipework would need to be moved first. Then fitting the A/C system itself.. condenser needs to be fitted behind the dash along ...

If you can find just the pump (I bought one from EuroCarParts a few years back) it is possible to change just the pump, keeping the original sender unit.

Good question, I do not know. Hopefully not nickel as it's a nice knob to touch.
Like touching knobs do you? 😂😂😂

Puma 1.7 won't start-Any advice please

If there is no click when you turn the key, something is stopping the starter solenoid from making the starter motor turn. I believe there is a starter relay somewhere which may be the cause.
Or a faulty starter solenoid.

Those are my educated guesses.. :o)

Those wires on mine connect into the bottom of the fan housing for the rad. It's possibly a capacitor for the fan motor?
It's definitely something to do with the fan but I'm not exactly sure what.
Its a fan resistor which makes the fan run on low speed.

FRP map without cams?

Standard engine will work fine with an FRP ECU/MAP.

Adding the cams, inlet etc. will make a difference but the best gains will be with all of it together.

Putting the cams/inlet with out the MAP I don't think would make a big difference.
