I looked at a few suspension set ups before deciding on the B12 sports kit.
The suspension kit was just over £500, wishbones, tie rods, top mounts, powerflex bushes and all new bolts total was over £700.
My car has over 90k on the clock, i didn't want something else going wrong so replaced what...
The banging from my car has now been fixed. The lockdown has given me plenty of time to source the parts and get them all fitted over the past couple of days.
When going over bumps or rough roads the noise was horrendous. It got to the stage I was thinking of trading the car in for something...
To be honest I have no idea what your talking about. No offence
I came here to ask about strut size for suspension, I emailed the company supplying but they needed to know a few things the only one I couldn't answer was strut diameter.
I wish it was that simple. There's the strut size, rear suspension set up torsion beam or multi link and front axle load to add confusion.
I've narrowed it down to 2 setups just need to know the strut size.
Was hoping it was the front ARB Bush but looks like they cannot be replaced when I jacked the driver side up. Springs all look OK, the rear looks like a simple set up as it's not multilink no ARB or drop links there.
Any recommendations on a new suspension set up as I'd just replace all round...
Had a look at the exhaust and rear brakes last night as well but nothing that seems loose.
Shook the car as best I can from the side and reat when parked but can't get the noise to happen, just appears when driving.
I'm having an issue with a metallic rattle clunk from the driver side rear I think, when going over rough un even roads.
Have looked under the car and can't see any loose panels or heat shields, I've got standard FR 150 suspension not multi link.
I'm at a loose end so far as to what I need to...
Just an update I have changed the matrix and found it to be full of brown crap, it was blocked hence the limited heat when I did get any. After changing it today I seem to have heat out all blowers.
When changing it out I drained what coolant I could and hoovered the rest out of the matrix pipes...
Well I lost all temp on a 4hr drive freezing my arse off for the last hour and a half. Going to order up a new matrix and hopefully get it stripped and installed at the weekend.
I'm that desperate for heat I've been looking at 240v transformers and sticking in an electric radiator.
i have more than one problem with the car at the moment, just as i tell everyone how reliable my SEAT is.
The heater weems to be blowing cold air on the passenger side, i have replaced the sensor in the drivers side vent which has made no difference.
would sticking switches cause this or am i...
