Seats !! Help !!

Hi Pat, welcome. The seats should be the same actual size but the bases will be different because there were two different floor pan layouts. You would likely also need to swap over the seat belt pretensioners since they are unlikely to be compatible. The earlier cars did also have electric operatio...

Puma coolant issue

The pattern parts have been known to be quite hit and miss, I'd probably start by ringing your local Ford parts counter. They are used for Fiestas and KAs too I believe so in theory should still be readily available. Not sure how comparible this price is now but here's a genuine one on eBay https://...

Puma coolant issue

You need to find exactly where it's leaked from. The top offender for a coolant loss like that would be the heater control valve located up at the back of the engine bay because over time they are known to become brittle and snap.

Failing that maybe a damaged radiator?

Considering a Puma - do they *all* rust?

I think at this stage in their lives unless you are buying from a real enthusiast then you can expect some level of rust. You just need to check the cars out carefully when you're looking at them.

That passenger footwell leak

Top right of that second picture is the main wiring grommet. This is the most common area to leak in to the passenger footwell.

I believe the recommendation is to try reseating it before pasting it with sealant.

ABS kicking in every minute or so-need help please

Have you checked the tone ring whilst changing the sensors? Maybe one has been damaged or corroded? Welcome to the site. Yes, sound like ABS. Check the sensor to tone ring gap. This behaviour, grinding to a stop is usually a sign of misaligned or slightly damaged tone ring (few notches are bent in)....

My girlfriend potential owner Puma 1.6

:grin: good luck with the search, it sounds like you made the right choice.

Also to add the 1.6 is not the collaboration with Yamaha, that was only the 1.7 unit, the 1.6 is the same unit as in other Fords of the time and should be a reliable engine still if it has been properly maintained.

Rear brake conversion from drum to disk. And now a grinding noise once after pulling away

Where did you get this kit from? I don't recall HiSpec doing such a kit for a Puma and their website does not list them in their models.

I'd be checking that the kit was indeed for a Puma, it's a bit suspicious given the incorrect handbrake cable length.

It runs along the lines of heat shrink around the pegs and bolts through to strengthen it up.

No change. There is a thread in the FAQ section about parcelshelves and how they can be adapted so they don't fall through.

It's to do with the flex in the pegs and their thickness.
