From memory, on older Matiz it should be an 10 pins OBD 1 like this:

Ah, ok. Well, it will be a lot easier to see what it has once I have the car in my possession again. I've not seen it since mid-September. Ridiculous.

I think it might be an import. Steering wheel is different to all the examples I've seen.

 

Plus, its badged as an SE and has steel wheels, but has the boot spoiler of the SE Plus and air conditioning. Radio blanking plate is interesting, too.

Weirdly it doesn’t show up on totalcarcheck. According to the DVLA it’s tax was last due in 2006 and it’s only had 2 MOT’s, one in December and one in 2010. Strange little critter!

It is an odd one. It's very late for a pre-facelift, which makes me wonder if it's a European-built one.

 

Anyway, this happened.

Dwpth0lX0AEpegr.jpg

 

New lower arms, new ARB bushes, new track rod end rubbers, new discs, new pads and one more CV joint and she's driving much more nicely, and actually stopping!

 

Briefly visited the Dean/Angyl BX swap, but there were no dramas and I managed to take no pictures (though I did get some video). 

 

Drove home. It got dark.

DwptICsXcAAqv-J.jpg

 

First time I've actually had all of my vehicles at home since I bought the Matiz in July! Also hit 90,000 miles on the way back, which means I'm going to have to keep it until at least 100,012 miles (it had 12 on the clock when I bought it 20 years ago). Can I hit that figure before August, which is when I took delivery in 1999? (probably not).

Brilliant. Given me a right hankering for another Matiz.

 

Think my old one has sadly departed now, might email CM to see if they know what happened to it out of interest....

In late 1999, I finished my office job in Shirley, Solihull, jumped in my Matiz, collected some friends and hot-footed it down to Brixton Academy. We went to see Nine Inch Nails, where I purchased this T-shirt. We then drove back to Birmingham. T-shirt and car have aged remarkably well. Owner, not so much perhaps...

Gave the Matiz a service today. Glad I didn't run it for too long prior, as the oil filter is directly below the exhaust manifold... A bit of a sod to get at, but got there in the end. Plugs were manky, air filter black. Went for a test drive and discovered that I don't think the air filter was clipped down correctly before. Doesn't sounds as growly now!

Thought I'd better do something about the sills, as they were looking a bit crusty. Attacked them with a screwdriver and a wire brush attachment in a drill and pleased to report no holes either side! I think this was your classic 'just in time' repair. Here is the nearside sill, bathing in Vactan.

DxXkDj6WoAAAJCs.jpg

 

There's a bad blister on the nearside rear wheelarch, at about 10 o'clock. I'm not sure I dare attach it, but did discover a thick sludgey pile of mud on the inner edge. I'll wash that out once I've finished with the sill end.

Further to this, I'll be getting some zinc primer on once the Vatcan has cured. Then I'll need some topcoat. I'm assuming base plus lacquer on this, but haven't got a clue to be honest. Any recommendations when it comes to rattle cans?

I've had good success with WLW Auto paints sold on ebay:

 

https://www.ebay.co....=item51f768a2b1

 

They do a good deal on basecoat and lacquer as evidenced through my sill repaint job on the Celica. I got a can of red and a can of lacquer for about £15 and the colour match was perfect.

After primer, before base coat, chuck some stonechip paint on.  It's a high impact area and it will benefit from the extra protection.  It might also benefit from using zinc/weld-through primer rather than standard stuff if the bits I've done on the Princess are anything to go by.  Colour coat, then lacquer to finish for best result.  Also, when masking off, a tip I was given that works well is to tape the paper down near the repair as if you're masking off the repair, then loosely fold the paper back on itself so it's the side you want to mask.  This gives a 'soft line' and helps with feathering the paint out if you're using aerosols, especially useful when you haven't got a hard line to mask to like a panel gap and is one of those incredibly easy to do tips that requires no special skills to achieve.

That sounds like a really good common sense tip now you've said it...will keep that in mind next time I'm doing paintwork...

That's a coat of zinc rich primer. In fact, it was the very last of my one tin of zinc rich primer. I just about managed to do both sill ends before it ran out. Stonechip and paint ordered, but hopefully the zinc primer will protect it until then. I need the garage for other projects.

Thanks for that, DW. Looks as I remembered. I did take a pic of mine but it was back in around 2009 so not only did I apparently take it with a potato, but I also got a good bit of my thumb in the pic thus making it rather difficult to see.

Looks identical to the one on the Lada, which would make sense given the era and origins of the electronic bits involved. Lada one at least speaks ALDL and was usually communicated with what was essentially a Tech I took with a Lada badge taped on the front.

Here's the interesting thing. I have my suspicions that the air filter housing had not been closed up properly, as I managed to do in the video. She now feels quieter AND more sluggish with it sealing properly...

After my Matiz was serviced I noticed it sounded louder and a bit more "gruff" as I was driving home. I was quite pleased until I realised that the garage had put the airbox lid back on so roughly that they'd broken two of the locating tabs along the rear edge, creating the same issue you've seen here.

The 'leak' would be above the filter I think. I might leave the lid off slightly for better noise, though I think there's a sensor above the filter rather than below it. Struggling to remember now.
