Getting one Friday... but....

Post by leopard_pagan on Wed Mar 27, 2013 9:23 pm

£270
1.3 EFI MPV, blue, bodywork looks ok
unknown mileage, no keys.. HPIed the reg in the photo & will be checking if the VIN matches.
advertised as a non-runner* so expect a few posts in workshop section &if its a total lemon.. i'll break & sell off to get money back.
*Current owner bought to export to Nigeria but has no idea whats wrong with it..

btw.. is it just me or anyone notice the MPV 1.3s kinda scarce as i am guessing most have been exported out the country!

And the fun begins...
Fuel can with fuel... Check
Coat hanger & box strapping to break in to van... Check
Car & Trailer/tie downs... Check
Cash... Yup

Entertainment of the seller desperate to sell = me attempting to bargain a few more quid off....
Not got ant expectations, were going to 1) try & get in to the van so I can check the VIN/HPI & try to start it..

They are unbelievably easy to get into without keys!

Take the water seal strip off the door, then put a little fold in the end of a straightened out coat hanger so its hook like and pull the mechanism.

If you need a lock set I have a complete van lock set with 1 key.

Remove the cowling off the steering wheel, and take the black switch back off the ignition and see if it runs.

You'll need a nice little chisel to undo the sheer bolts off the steering lock mechanism. Chisel a little noggin on the side of the bolt head, then use it to chase them round to undo them.
