Okay, thanks. So does it mean, earlier models are quiter than the later ones with the smooth surface?

Ribbed back box?

Just wondering when I saw a picture of the original Puma back box that's like ribbed all over. Was there a reason for that or that just how it had been made?

Needles

My puma 1.4 has developed a strange affliction. When I turn the ignition on, all the needles on the dashboard fly round to the right, stay there for a couple of seconds and then return to rest. Any ideas as to what could cause this please. As Yog said, battery, mine did the same, got new one and th...

What edition is my Puma?

Yes it looks like the first buyer didn't like extras. The boot light and it's components are completely missing, probably been covered by the fabric. Not sure if the boot lid has been replaced or not, but the shade of the paint matches the whole car. I wanted a 3rd brake light, but it would cost too...

What edition is my Puma?

I know there's many different editions of Pumas, but not sure which one is mine, if any. It's a 2001, 1.7 Colorado Red. Things she hasn't got: electric mirrors, 3rd break light, CD player, aircon, leather seats (don't fancy them anyway), rear wing, boot light, not even the spot where the whole devic...

Loud BANG and the car started to roll forward??!!

Sorry for the late reply, tablet''s screen was broken. I might began to understand what could've happened. I always pull the handbrake up with the button held, so doesn't make that rattle noise. I had a quite bad day then and I was well unfocused and probably, when I was applying the hand brake, I m...

Loud BANG and the car started to roll forward??!!

Hi guys. I'd parked the car on a bit of a downhill yesterday and after pulling the hand brake up and locking the doors, I walked a few steps away and suddenly heared a loud "bang". I thought someone had thrown something at the car and broke one of the windows, noise was really loud, but wh...

Resting hand on gear stick

I was watching a video about bad driving habits, and the guy said resting the arm on the gear stick, puts extra pressure on the selector or something, so transmission would wear our much sooner...I like leaveing my hand on the top of the stick, so shall I just stop doing it, or that kinda wear isn't...
