Picked up my new Y10 today, having regretted selling the GTie last year I consider myself lucky to have found this LX.
It has only covered around 37,000 miles which appears genuine, there are supplying dealer service stamps right up to 1998 when it was still only around 18k, MoT history seems to back up the low miles it's covered in the last 32 years! Just over 1,000 miles a year....

Love the colour of it, really looks bright and fresh.

The alloy wheels will no doubt give varying opinions, I quite like them but I also have the original wheel trims should I feel the need...

Interior is in superb condition, seats and carpets are perfect, roof lining looks factory fresh.

That's the good news!

The list of jobs to do that I've uncovered this afternoon, mostly to be fair they were known when I bought the car.

Both outer sills need replacing although the rest looks decent,
There are a few rust patches to sort, nothing major that will keep the car from continuing it's life.
A rear wheel bearing,
Rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders,
Rear hatch struts,
Full exhaust system,
Cambelt change,
Full brake overhaul as the pedal goes to the floor, no sign of fluid loss.
Central locking playing up,
Service the engine..

The drivers window apparently falls out of the mechanism when lowered, it appears that the plastic clip that holds the regulator to the glass is missing the retaining piece, feels as though there is nothing on the other side of the white fitting.

Anyone know what the other side looks like, or have a spare?

If I know what it should look like then maybe it's sat in the door bottom, or at least I can search for a new clip..

Also, how does the door handle come off to allow the upper trim to come off?

Door handle upper trim is an oblong with lugs at the sides that clip under the surrounding alcantara. Push them in at the side and lift them up. It helps to raise the door release lever to allow space. Attached is a picture of a new window rack showing the attachment for the glass. I suspect yours has sheared off but I have spares I c an provide. I'm going to north Lincolnshire on Friday in the middle of the day and returning on Sunday afternoon. Might it be convenient for me to swing by your place with a red cross parcel of spares?

That's perfect thanks Frank, thought it must be clipped in something like that but didn't want to force and potentially break it.

That clip for the window I imagine must be properly broken, I'll go out with a torch in a bit and have a look. If you've a spare you're willing to part with that would be great.
Also I will be home Sunday if you wanted to have a look at the car, or I can meet you somewhere, that would be greatly appreciated. I've ordered a few bits today so will probably tackle the cambelt and waterpump as I don't know when it was last changed.

The central locking is making some strange noises too, drivers door just makes some weird noises and even makes a noise like a small electric motor running at times! Passenger door appears to be functioning OK but fails to trigger the drivers side door, so suspect either a failing sender unit in the drivers door or a bad/broken wire in the door to A pillar junctions.

As we suggested before Frank I'd be interested in buying some spares off you, always handy to have semi consumable parts to hand at times, switches, motor's etc, all handy to have. I remember you saying you are almost overflowing with bits!

Checked the window clip Frank and I can feel that one of the prongs that goes through the hole in the glass is missing, so the glass is able to fall out, so I do indeed need a new clip.
Re the central locking I think there's a wiring issue as it started making a real funny whirring noise, as I say like a small electric motor, when I thumped the door near to where the wiring channel is the noise stopped.

About to buy some rear hatch struts, unless you have some good ones? Not overly expensive for new, bought a pair for the GTie last year so don't mind buying new.

The central locking works off solenoids that clunk across so shouldn't have a motor running to my mind. The only motor ought to be the window lift. Might its' being detached from the glass cause the motor to carry on running? You are better off with new tailgate struts as anything second hand tends to be weak. I am not "almost overflowing with spares" They have already overflowed and are filling up laid up cars etc. Would you like to PM me with contact details so we could discuss my calling in on Sunday afternoon?

A big thank you to Frank for calling round this afternoon to not only drop off some very useful parts but to educate me on many interesting points on the Y10, nice to have a 2nd opinion on the cars' condition too.

I've started to get quite a few parts together now so should be able to get started on the car soon.

I think the best thing for the car is to get it up and running nicely, sort the brakes, weld the sills then get the MoT done and run it for a year to see what else needs ironing out. Then set about tackling the few rust spots on it at a later date.

Like so many of the projects I've got stacking up, I can't wait to get started...

Hi,

I'm sure I've got a pair of electric window lifters still kicking around in my workshop if you want me to look at the weekend.

Thanks for the offer but Frank came up trumps with a good used one  Cool
