The £650 Puma

362575 This means the previous bush installer definitely removed the axle hinges from the chassis to get the bolt in the way its been done........... On the plus side - it may be a contributing factor to the wayward handling. The bushes were last done by a dodgy garage up the road from me (long sin...

Well, with the baton passed on, all I can say is GOOD LUCK!

ABS is a new one though - probably the only typical Puma problem I didn't have with Jegger! :thumbs:

The £650 Puma

Very true! Jegger was fairly sound structurally, but the passenger side sill had a nasty blister and the rear inner wheel arches were just starting to hole. Not too far gone (a lot of rot had been sorted out in my time and the sills are filled with Bilt Hamber). It was just the relentless next fix t...

The £650 Puma

To be honest Barry, I hadn't touched it in a year and it was depressing seeing it going green and manky on the driveway. The options were; 1. Break it for parts - that would have been a proper shame. 2. Sell it - potential for the next owner to break it for parts. 3. Give it away - Essentially gives...

Never say never! The Swift is good, but it's not a Puma (missing steering feel and 'that' gear change).

I just had to step away as motivation for a car with constant and unrelenting issues tends to dull the enthusiasm!

Time to spend a bit of effort on Jegger! The rear brake lines have been on the advisories on and off for years, so I decided to have a poke about and see how bad they were. It certainly looked bad... https://c7.staticflickr.com/9/8837/29318447870_307fc50de8_c.jpg But on close inspection, it was a go...

It's because every journey has a driver, but not always a passenger.

Tailgate Release

One last thing (and because I almost did this) when you tried it last, was the engine running? I almost ordered one up before I realised that the solenoid only works when the engine is off!

Simple as that You're more than welcome to use whatever words you like - permission granted! I'm difficult to upset (plus I like a good bit of profanity)! :grin:

Maybe, but back when I was a lad, a 228bhp coupe was quite a car! It was also brand new and shiny! Contrary to popular belief, it was a lovely car and went like stink!

I'm not happy seeing dead cars down the driveway - that's the simple truth! I've seen old chaps with rotting heaps refusing to sell them even though there's no chance of them ever being able to fix them up again. I find that quite sad ultimately. Regardless, I've come to a conclusion or plan of sort...

Cheers all - I'm going to have a good hard think about it. The missus is uneasy about me chucking it back in (surprising) and the kids looked horrified (they generally look horrified at everything). Hopefully, I'll finish fixing the MGF today and the Subaru is off to get fixed on Thursday (turbo up-...
