picked it up on Saturday it was cheap because its got a few faults worest 1 is he left the oil cap off and its got a bit off a tap from the top end so i need to put some new cams in 2nd fault was the drivers seat wont go all the way back easy fix this one and i actually made money on this one as there was 22 pence stuck in the seat

3rd one was it wouldn't tick over from cold this was because it had a bit off a flat battery stuck it on my conditioner and top the acid up and its fine

2 faults on the dash engine light is on along with the battery light because someone has cut the 2 wires from the alternator which in turn i think is cause the engine light to be on

but i cant find where the other wire is so can any 1 give me a clue here is a pic



and a few off the car

















future plans are strip make it lighter bigger breaks new suspesion and drive it hard

I may be wrong but I think the two wires on the Saxo Alternator are the ECU feed that brings the dash warning lights on. The Saxo alternator is known to have a few issues with corroding wires and terminals and it's been known for them to be cut.

Loads of threads on Google etc about them.

bit more done today all back together now cut all the brackets and stuff out off the front and put some rust primer on the bare metal just waiting for the side mounts for the seat now
also had a good look under it and its all solid so happy as just need to sort a blow in the back box and find a new alternator as that is draining the battery
