Ours has been completely reliable, sorry to hear the problems you are having, but we do have one thing in common - a dead spider in e reversing light!

Sorry to hear all your bad luck hope they fix the roof as soon as they can, at least it will be nice and clear and hopefully more supple than the old one so it will last you.

Look on the bright side though, at least it's winter and so you can't enjoy the car at its best with the roof down - imagine if it had coincided with our usual two weeks of summer!

Could try getting someone to push down and pull up on the boot as you turn the key, find ours sometimes won't release first time using the remote but this solves it and saves going into the car to unlock it manually. Just a thought worth trying?

In Topic: *noise* - Does Your Ka Does The Same?

yes, it's a similar noise that our Stretka makes which I was told was wear in the water pump., although you can hear this with the bonnet open, but could be down to different positioning of the water pump possibly on the bigger engines. Ours has done it for last 3yrs and 10k miles not got any worse to be honest.

Not sure if you have had no replies because people cant get the link yo work, each time I try it it defaults to adverts then fires up advert pages and jams up my ipad!

However, from your description it could be the water pump, ours has been doing it for last three years without issue. Quitens down when engine is hotter. If you get a long screwdriver or metal pole and put it on different parts of the engine and your ear to the other end, you might be able to tell where it's coming from better.
