Excellent summary there Chas I would like to also add a mention of the alternatives to the uno Turbo - other fiats to consider the Tipo Sedicivalvole the Punto GT. As the price of a good uno Turbo goes up and as most uno Turbos become more rusty it may be worth evaluating those two alternatives more modern the use of galvanised steel possibly more practical as everyday cars something more likely to
the ribbed shelf behind would help prevent that claustrophobia-inducing bulk of most modern cars. Aluminium paddle switches on the instrument cluster (which could be made out of tactile modern materials) could leave a single stalk on the steering column which could have a nice robust feel to it. Single wiper of course. Slatted grille naturally. Five diagnonal chrome bars - why not - to hell with fiat
another first by Alex Cruise control in a uno..... soon youll have 6 balloons stuck to the dashboard and side panels and call them airbags im still in the full throttle stage with the uno so not even going to guess what fuel i use in all i know is that when the needle gets to 14 it gets filled back up again

Maybe if I get some sleeping bag
Tanks with airbag suspension (WHY is the back end always scraping the ground and yet the front pointing to the sky) or the Mondeos etc. with the wheels inside the wheelarch BTCC-style. My uno Turbo - about 50mm lower than standard - didnt even raise an eyebrow at the vehicle testing station. They could see it didnt have cut-springs or anything rubbing so it was fine... I think it looks right too fiat
OK we all run our fiatS to a budget BUT safety of our precious ones is NUMERO uno especially in view of the FordVWVauxallzewayhome etc etc dingoes out there and YOUR insurance will not unless you tell them AND get their agreement take kindly to bypassed airbags and the like.. not good news but in life take a short cut and itll undoubtedly cost you or more likely your loved ones
Not for me they are not 2 - 1984 uno 70s (5 doors) one with 90000km on it. 1 - 1988 uno 60. Aah no turbo you see i have left that to my Stable of SAABs Not for weekend driving but I am tempted to get a Punto. One with dual airbags something very economical for a daily driver. A 1.2 8v according to the Punto guys.
I agree with 1986uno45S. Better the devil you know than the one you dont. Incidentally Puntos are rather more than 1K here... My uno Turbo needed most of today spent (by jjhepburn) welding significant areas of the floor generally much worse than the bit that could be seen from underneath that caused a failure of the WOF. The inner sill (inside the car) was completely detached from the floor over a
Thanks for the info if I put the gt engine in I need a lot more like full wireing loom with ecu code box all keys and locks speedo binical then the problem with airbag system and abs system So the uno engine seems to me to be the way to go just got to splice the loom into existing punto one for the speedo rev counter temp gauge and the ignition block
Id like to see RACING EDITION written on a log book sounds like one of the last unos made the south africans have very late UTs and brazilians and polish where the kept making them upto 99-2000 airbag aircon maybe antiskid non on here mate
ive seen a M reg mk2 Racing edition in the UK had ABS and airbag.
My 1992 UT has Racing badges on it. No airbags aircon or ABS though.
when did u follow me to santa pod cos i cant remember lol sumplug yeah i know. 2wds have the 205 block and the 4wd have the 200 block but youll find most cossies have had a rebuild and most have been rebuild using the 200 block so all is ok i know my cossies wouldnt get a punto gt unless it was a run around as they aint that quick. too muh weight and gayness like airbags and side inpact bars. unos
spaced so unable to alter satisfactorily. Im not sure if the garage is trying to generate unnecessary work or if the steering rack is the root cause of the problem (quite a few years ago I did have to replace the engine). OK - the giveaway there is when you say although the track rod end thread is not equal on both sides. It should be To centralise the rack is really not a difficult job on the uno
Only fiat garages or specialists will have the correct equipment to tell you what the problem is. A trip to a dealer for a diagnostic check is what you need. fiat Brava 1.6 HSX fiat uno 1.1 ieS.
ECU What reason did they give you fiat Brava 1.6 HSX fiat uno 1.1 ieS.
unofficial advice from my local fiat garage for my 11 year old Barchetta was dont bother as its too expensive. I believe that the only risk is that it wont go off or wont inflate properly.
That looks ... not bad. Esp the thickened bit where your hands rest on the wheel. I was thinking of a standard fiat wheel from another model. What about the X1-9 - will that fit operate the flasher cancel etc No horn push reqd no airbag.

Originally Posted by lewey Yeah they changed that recently to be completely electronic based on ECU conversations. When an airbag goes off or the accelerometer under the gear stick goes wild enough a signal is sent to the body computer to trigger the fuel cut-off as it is called. The indicators method to remove it that I described above is in the handbook and is the only mention of it I have found. so does this mean youll have to get into the ecu to reset it or will you need a new ecu Dan
One is for ECU other one could be for ABSairbag etc.
am i right in thinking the alternator from a diesel has a significantly higher output maybe that would be an inexpensive way of solving your problem Originally Posted by Peterg Please tell us what the batteries are used for you have me entrigued airbag suspension

Originally Posted by alexGS I dont think its just you I also find my 500 a bit odd especially when I get into my Spider or my 166 after a while and everything falls nicely to hand (and foot). I think in fiats defence I should point out that safety dictates positioning of the occupants and steering wheel. I expect more thought goes into getting the right angles for the airbag deployment (even the positioning
and airbags have been known to fire after more than 20 years... Id be happy to replace gas generators if they were actually available as service parts... as far as I know the only way you can get them is part of whole airbag assemblies Google search for airbag gas generator replacement httpswww.google.co.nzsearchqai...&clientsafari I like the way the results mention Alfa Romeo Ferrari and... fiat

COPY AND PASTE- Barchetta History The Barchetta has been with us for over 14 years now. It made its debut at the 1995 Geneva Motor Show. Several manufactures had noticed the growing sales of the Mazda MX5 and rightly concluded the market for soft tops was back in &8211 including fiat . Speculation had been rife about the basis for the fiat soft top car after production of the X19 ceased. A cut down
is quite a cocoon quiet refined and with smooth light steering just what I want for the commute. And with great pace when I want it. But it makes me think that the MR2 sitting low roof down and sharp articulate steering is going to be a fantastic contrast and even quicker Both great in their own way for the right circumstance and different enough to justify running 2 cars.

the horn contacts are probly bent happens alot. pop the airbag off and mess about with it if your feeling brave. D -[uno 1.0ie RAAAWW]- -[trained fiat tech for what its worth.]-
fiat say too disconect the battery i just leave the ignition switched off then 3 5mm allen head bolts on the back of the wheel. ive seen an airbag detonated face down before it flew for a long time D they are pretty dangerous i dont recomend anyone who isnt 100% sure of what there are doing too touch one. -[uno 1.0ie RAAAWW]- -[trained fiat tech for what its worth.]-
were bent full unit replaced under warranty 9. passenger airbag came loose inside the dash at end of year one replaced under warranty 10. coolant pump failed just before year three service full replacement inc cambelt under warranty. it would appear both our cars are roughly the same age (mine reg mar2004) as early models appear to share similar issues. i know with the uno turbo during its life fiat
just adds more detergents to the fuel cleaning carbon off the engine pistons valves and so on but fuel already has adatives to do this more of them will clean oil from the bores and wear the engine quicker so no never use it all your engine needs to be clean is good quality oil new plugs and a right good kicking high combustion tempratures and standard fuel is all it needs we use to run a fiat

Hello unoman right looking here httptinyurl.comjroq2 it was an option to have an airbag fitted from 1996.
Very many thanks for all the replies. Most of you say exactly the same thing. 1.2 8v with Active Sport I will definitely look for that. I want 2 airbags and economy. It will be a daily driver replacing one of my unos.
what other issue is from - and agreed with me tearing it apart would be an uneconomical plan. Steering has since been totally fine... As Im fairly sure that the water pump is shot I am going to grab a new one of those and replace it - tough job Never seem to have 2 bloody minutes to do anything at the moment so if anyone does reply in here Im sorry if I dont get back to you I can just be a bit unorganisedforgetful
then i turn up with that I know what you mean Be thankful your MOT is only once a year - its every six months for most of us in NZ. Ive actually had the reverse situation - where both my fix-up projects actually got a WOF first time no problems... Thats one of the reasons why I love my 164. Its just sailed through its second WOF (in my ownership) last Thursday without a care in the world - my uno

Good job you said that about the airbag Alan I completely forgot about that since neither my uno or Punto ever had one.
