I’m looking for 4.5 - 5 k f9r the car ,I have seen a lot worse go for way more money. it runs, boosts and pulls like a train in every gear I will be sad to see it go, I have pumped well over 2.5 grand since ownership and couldn’t be happier. I t does need some tlc like most old car. Pm if you think the price is wrong. Mot runs out in August which I will put another 12 months on her.

Thanks for reading


Hi Tom,

Just a point if the steering wheel swap has caused the ABS light to come on - seams odd as there isn’t anything in there to interfere with the ABS - could be wrong. I would recommend putting the original back on for MOT as the car wouldn’t and shouldn’t pass an MOT with the ABS light on.

Good luck with the sale it does sound like you have put a lot into the car :+1:

So the airbag has nothing to do with the light? I put it down to that as I replaced my last wheel on my volvo and kept the light on. You lot know more than me :slight_smile: OK ill look into that. Thanx james

The airbag light is red and says SRS and comes on when starting the car the same as the orange ABS and then should go out if all is OK - do you mean the SRS light is on as this would be more likely with removing the airbag etc.



Srs cones on and goes , replaced bulb f9r tractio control light as its blown . How do you read the codes on a mk1 ? I would like to sort this problem out. Thanx . Please remove ad as I can’t part with the car thank you.


I’m booking the car into westfields to repair transfer box leak amd do a rear steer delete and sort the abs light out , ill prob have to pump another grand into it but I’m OK with that and car will be up for 5 grand is that a fair price ? As I saw 5 before i brought this one and some wanted 3 grand more in worse condition, no rot in boot amd drainholes all clear solid little body not your usual crap. If it sells it sells if not its going in the garage as a little investment, either way I’m happy.
