Re: EA Ghia questions ........

welcome :D

see if u can find out if the aircon system is actually working ok, wouldn't want there to be a reason for the actual belt to be off it. don't know what those belts go for but i doubt they're much.

gold mags?
sounds interesting.
sounds like a nice pickup for 1.1k!

installing the radiator was the best idea! just make sure you keep an eye on coolant and water levels to ensure there are no other cooling problems.

the sound u describe coming from the rear could be to do with the hand brake perhaps?

1. Put one on, you'll find your air con probably don't work tho.

2. Probably not a bad thing.

3. New front handbrake cable recommended.

4. Doesn't sound good, get that checked out.

5. Yep, take the circular panel off in the boot and clean the contacts, will fix your problem.

Hey mate,

You will probably find that the bearings in the air con compressor r cactus! The compressor is probably seized, thus cant have a belt running the pulley. Squeeling is probably due to your sticking calliper(s).
Are both rear brakes dragging? If so, your handbrake cable maybe frayed and binding in which case, do what donuts said. If its only 1 side dragging then id opt for a new calliper as the piston is seized.

Re: EA Ghia questions ........

The wheels sound like Gold Snowflakes to me.
Id say the belt was left off the Aircon so they could say "as far as we know thats all it needs" to cover there arses when it doesnt!
Id have the cooling system flushed asap, you may have replaced the radiator but theres bound to be some shit left in the system!
The high pitched rattle could be a wheel bearing.

Re: EA Ghia questions ........

Come to think if it my mums car had a "high pitch rattel" towards the rear of the car and it was only an exhaust leak.

Re: EA Ghia questions ........

Congrats on the purchase. When my EA had an awful noise from the back, it was from the self-levelling suspension. If the rear suspension is also sagging constantly, I'd be confident that is the problem.
