Time to shift this heap on, and what better way than to roffle it off for peanuts on here.

 

Roffle list here

 

Will also consider reasonable offers around £250-300 outright as I hope to have an incoming tomorrow. Needs to be gone before 20/1 ideally as insurance runs out then.

 

Before extolling the virtues* of this noisy matt black beast, I'd like a spokesperson from the community for which such a heap was intended to give his thoughts on everything:

 

 

Yup. 

 

IMG_20190106_152325.jpg

 

More photos and even a short film to follow. I bought this from Tom a year ago and it's barely been used - http://autoshite.com...ing-collection/

 

 

Bad bits

 

  •  
  • Very noisy at idle - sounds like a rattling pulley or bearing - noticeable when stopped in traffic. As soon as you open the throttle the rattle goes - doesn't affect the running
  •  
  • Feeble 063 battery which either needs replacing with the official Optimax red top AGM which goes in sideways under the passenger seat (er, £170) or a bodge done where you lift the seat out, remove the battery tray, cut out the clamp and stick a normal 096 battery in upright -  many CRD owners have done this. Basically if you don't run it regularly the 063 battery runs out of puff to crank the engine - alternator charges it fine however sits at 14.2v happily
  •  
  • Missing osf wheel arch liner
  •  
  • Rear view mirror regularly drops off for no reason whatosever, especially in hot weather
  •  
  • Er, it's matt black (originally silver) and has blacked out rear windows (actually I rather like the latter as it's useful when you're using it as a van)
  •  
  • Pretty much debadged except front and rear Chrysler logos
  •  
  • Had a dent nearside front wheel arch, sorted by Tom before selling to me
  •  
  • Heater isn't especially volcanic which may be due to a stuck thermostat - will chuck in the unfitted but obligatory Renner 5 in line thermo for the top hose
  •  
  • Usual suspension advisories on last MoT - TADTS
  •  
  • Surface rust ahoy underneath - only had a tiny bit of welding on one of the jacking points
  •  
  • I suspect the ac will need a regas (m8) - only tried it once and didn't blow mega cold
  •  

 

Good bits

 

  •  
  • Bulletproof Merc 2.2 CRD injun with a timing chain, pulls like a train m9
  •  
  • Top spec Limited version
  •  
  • With sunroof (rare), heated leather/suede seats for warm bums, traction control, ABS, great stereo
  •  
  • All the other toys seem to work - only thing I haven't used is cruise control
  •  
  • Only 105000 ish miles - nowt for a 15 yr old diesel
  •  
  • Front discs/pads done at last MoT, rear pads done by me - stops on its nose
  •  
  • Will provide the CB radio it came with, although I yanked it out so may need some fettling to get it plumbed back in if you are so inclined
  •  
  • Highly versatile and can be used as a van - rear seats can come out completely and front passenger seat also folds forward, useful for very long things
  •  
  • Incredibly comfortable
  •  
  • Ticket till Oct, taxed to get ya home
  •  
  • The major weak spot on these CRDs, the clutch, was replaced at huge cost to a previous owner a few years back - invoice included
  •  
  • Original book pack, radio code, various bits of paperwork
  •  

 

Roffle woffle at a fiver a pop. 

 

Shitloads more photos to follow next....

I don't want to win by the way because diesel engines are meant for boats, but I'm a sucker for scruffy cars and matt black over silver is something you have to experience in real life so you can call yourself a compleat person.

Does this have aircon? If popular opinion is to believed it probably won’t still be running when the weather gets warmer but I need to know.

It makes the critical difference between having one random or two, the stakes just don’t get any higher

Good point, I think it needs a regas, m8.

 

I rarely if ever use aircon and seem to recall when I tried it once it didn't turn into a fridge.

 

I tended just to have the sunroof open - old skool fresh air motorist me, none of this newfangled devilry for me.
