White 16v bx

Post by dalhousie2008 » Sun Dec 27, 2015 7:27 pm

So I bought the White bx 16v from just up the road from kitch, after spotting it sat in traffic, it's a pretty solid car with a few small niggles to do.

Chucked it in for an mot and failed on 3 minor issues and 1 medium issue.

Emissions very slightly high (new petrol and a good run to sort, maybe small service)

Leak on hydraulic return pipe located on under side of the car under drivers seat, small length of hose needs replacing.

Bad earth of rear light.

Steering rack ram leaking, poss to use early xantia ram or I have found a new one, but unless anyone knows of a good place to find one cheaper.

Looking forward to driving it now, got to remove the xantia brakes and fit standard brakes and wheels

It has passed today grand total of £107 including the mot cost, just scrapped through on emissions.

Now the real fun begins.
