The answer is no. The 1.2 Punto is not and interference fit and therefore the valves do not get damaged by turning over without a cam belt.

Punto wheels will not fit a 206. Punto wheels are 4x98. Check with your local tire dealer to find the correct tires for your vehicle.

Yes it will fit you would be better of changing box with engine and fuel setup is different so ecu will also have to be changed. fuel pump in tank should be the same but worth checking out...be carefull removing this pump + installing as they are easilly coroded and intake/return snap off. ecu may need recoding as may well eat the petrol but this is minor and very cheap to fix

Get the correct fitment for your car. Go online and find out what specs you need first. Then ask your dealer/ supplier about the stock availability.

yes it can, the reversing sensor and connection just needs moving that's all

You Take the mesh cover off which is where the speaker is behind. you then unscrew the speaker and remove the cable from the back and swap it with an aftermarket one if you want better quality sound

I have a fiat punto 1998 1.2. With the back lights, theres 2 large holders screwed in just above the boot (inside) there will be a tool in your spare wheel holder to undo it, once both unscrewed you can take off the back light and unscrew to screws that holds on the lenses, besure not to drop it. once the 2 screws have been removed you can then release the bulbs and change them as required. just repeat backwards to replace and becareful not to loose the tool to undo the holders.

The Fiat 500 is the newest Fiat available. This new vehicle has been redesigned to fit the needs in the US. It features a powerful engine and fuel efficiency.

User Avatar

There is no point in doing that as the Fiat Bravo HGT has a Normally Aspirated engine ( no turbo)

You probaly have the wrong pads, look for the right ones and they will fit good

Double Active - Usually means that a bulb has blown within the system or there is a connection issue (usually due to corrosion). Check all the bulbs are working correctly and replace if necessary. Hope this might Help Nickccc

Yes! Same interior shape and size, just different shape of exterior, interior dimensions the same.

I had the same problems with my Punto sx 60, 1998 reg. I bought a complete unit. It will be necessary to unscrew the old one and then replace with the new one. hope this helps.......Claire Peronally, I suggest you give up and buy a new car entirely- Fiats are cheap for a reason. This time it would be useful to get one with a back windscreen included. Hope this helps.... Melon

This can only be done in a Fiat garage (or so I've heard). My Fiat Panda, in Kwik-Fit where it was serviced, they said they couldn't switch it off and needed to go to them.
