New puma owner ( by that I mean I'm new to owning it)

Postby 1961ed1961 » Thu Feb 09, 2017 12:55 pm

Hi to everyone, I have recently purchased a 2001 puma with 72000 miles in very good useable condition. I previously owned a silver puma a couple of years back sold it and regretted doing so, along came this one in blue and money exchanged now I own it, I am pleased with it and now I need parts , is front mudflaps really that hard to buy as I thought they would be plentiful ? , perhaps someone on here can guide me , the ones on it have split one is in the boot ( knackered) one hanging on split cannot repair it . I think the guy who had it previously from new kept it maintained but put it through car washes, but it still looks good, will start to use it when I can. Cheers ed

Welcome along (back) :ok:

Front do appear to be in short supply - there's sometimes a pair on ebay:

FINIS 1058595 if you're searching. Might be worth asking your local Ford parts desk?

Hi , thanks I am surprised at the parts supply shortage but in fairness the car ceased production well over 10 yrs ago. It won't stop me using it, just waiting for better weather and it will be out and about in it

No joy at any ford dealers, not surprised really as they clear parts out after 4years of the car going out of production, all parts are kept in a central location, customer order, but I managed to get a pair of eBay new in bag result

I have a question for those in the know, I have looked on the dvla check system for previous mot history (very good system) it gives my car as silver but it's light blue, it's the same colour inside under the carpet and underneath so it is standard.As anybody got any ideas of the actual colour there area couple of Pumas on eBay of the same shade.
