Thanks Mike, I think that's probably the best plan. And it's free as well. Smiley

I've just been out for a quick blast, and it's so much fun. The pedals are really close together which took a little getting used to, and every time I went over a sharp edged bump the dashboard felt like it was going to fall off, but it just wants you to throw it around corners, and while the steering is heavy at low speed it's great when you are on the move. Would be nice if I could see the speedo (or the rev counter) through the steering wheel, but it's all kph anyway, so it's not a huge amount of use!

Putting the window down gave me quite a strong whiff of petrol - I guess that's got to go above the interior on the list of things to fix. Might just be the exhaust - if I remember properly it was an advisory on the last couple of MOTs. Will have to investigate when I next get half an hour...
If you post up a picture of your dials, I'll look & see whether the instrument binnacle I have could yield you an MPH speedo.
That's an interesting idea. I was planning on just sticking a mobile phone with GPS speedo to the windscreen, but a working speedo would probably be better! Is this  agood enough picture?

HI I hope you found the cause of petrol wiff. I would check all rubber fuel hoses especially on the underside.

Had a good look today but couldn't find the Y10 instruments I used to have, sorry. I did find the dash from one of my old Deltas though! Huh?

That manual turned up this afternoon. That's this weekend's reading sorted. Smiley

If it ever stops raining I'll put some cardboard underneath it and see if anything drips on it. When I can get it up in the air then I'll give all the hoses a good inspection. I was considering if I should just replace all the rubber hoses - they could probably do with it if they are 30 years old.

The trim panel above the ashtray is where the window switches were mounted on earlier models. The Touring had a row of four switches because the rear side windows opened electrically too.

OK, sounds like it should just be a blanking plate on mine then.
The manual is a bit strange.  There's a load of useful information in the sections titled "Introduction Technical Data", "Engine", "Electrical Equipment", "Auxiliary Units" and "Bodywork", and absolutely nothing in Clutch, Gearbox Differential, Braking System, Steering, Suspensions and Wheels. There's also an appendix for the selectronic stuff. I guess all the missing information is unchanged from Volume 1.

Hi Duncan

Given the horror stories about modern fuel and old rubber pipes, I would change out all the rubber pipes for branded ethanol tolerant (R9?) pipes. There are also stories about unbranded R6 pipes being relabelled, so better to buy branded from reputable supplier, my personal view.

This then leaves the question of what to do about the rubber components internal to the likes of carburettor.

This usually the case with all the Lancia models.

Brakes, steering, suspension etc are covered in the Fiat Panda Haynes Manual which is handy to have because it doesn't tell you to get out a special tool to do something simple.

That's a good idea. There are a million on eBay, with a bunch of different years - I assume they are all basically equivalent?

The club has loads of special tools For hire for Y10!!! But a big hammer and blunt instrument may suffice....

On the Haynes Manual I use the green one that runs up to 1995 because that better matches the Y10. Stuff the Y10 had was passed on to the next generation of Panda so early Pandas are less similar.

Quick question - what size tyres are people using, on the car and the spare?
The car and the spare have 175 70 R13 on - the manual says it should have 155 70 R13 or 165 65 R13, and the spare should be 135 SR 13, but doesn't give a middle number. I need to change the spare tyre as this one won't fit under the bonnet - is it worth changing the tyres on the car (these ones are clearly too big)? And are there any specific ones to choose/avoid? They are all pleasingly cheap at this size.
