Roof trim wanted

If there’s anyone breaking a Puma at the moment, preferably in the the Midlands, be prepared to sell me the drivers side roof trim. I’d be more than happy to come and remove the trim myself with a length of fishing line.

FRP MOT emissions fail

Hi Mike, had exactly the same experience when I recently took my FRP for an MOT. It failed on exactly the same point as yours and even the revs dropped and the engine would stutter or stall. In the end I took it to Chris at Allison Automotive who fitted it with a new Lamdba Sensor and then took it t...

Bit of a tricky one - car cutting out whist driving

Can I share a similar problem I had with my Race Puma, for a couple of weeks the idle on the car was very rough, it would stall at light and braking down to stop. Anyway the MOT was due, it failed on the emissions , they were sky high. I t...

Blown breather pipe from gear box

Hi Alex, Now I’m no mechanic, but you mention in your last post that you’ve driven through some flood water, the air intake is set pretty low, whilst you’ve mentioned the gearbox several times, could it be that the flood water has been sucked into the engine causing hydraulic lock and forcing out th...

Plastic roof strip

I’m having difficulty sticking the black plastic strip that runs the length of the car on both sides of the Puma roof. I’ve thoroughly cleaned both surfaces before fixing the black foam double sided tape to the roof gully. I’ve then used a heat gun( the wife’s hairdryer !) to heat the black plastic ...

Ford launch new Puma

Ok it’s not going to be a two coupe coupe on fiesta underpinning, but a small SUV. At least the name lives on. Okay, so sticking the Puma name onto a small crossover feels like an insult to the memory of the much-loved coupe. But the rationale behind the baby SUV is actually pretty similar to that o...
