  • Corsa SXi 2003

    My son bought a Corsa SXi Twinport last year, he has now bought a Astra diesel and the Corsa is on the drive, due to my son's work (farmer) he has not looked after it well and I have spent a week making it look (and smell nice again), it had an MOT a couple of months ago and needed new drop links, plus it had a new exhaust and handbrake cable + a service just before that.

    But, the faults are:
    Rain water leaking into drivers footwell
    CD Player faulty
    Aerial missing
    Central Locking has a mind of it's own !
    Front lower black grills need fixing correctly as held in position with wire
    O/S Door mirror replaced with NON ELECTRIC one

    He paid a top of the range price for this 74,000 miler and if I sold it now I won't get anywhere near that price now, but I may keep it myself, but what do you think.

    All sounds like easy fixes.
    The water in the footwell is usually the brake servo seal. Usual fix is to remove and refit with a load of sealant.
    Only other real issue could be the locking, but could be something really simple.

      After 3 days of rain it's like a swimming pool on the drivers side, I have removed the floor bung.
      As much as I like the drive in this car, I think I will sell it if anyone is interested ! (Cheshire)

                      Well, guys and girls I have decided to join you lot and sell my daily driver and keep my sons Corsa SXi, we are not new to car forums at this house and we have had quite a few on the drive in the last couple of years (mainly french), although we did have a Merc CLK 55 AMG last year (it was my other son's - honest !)

                          Is that a 16v sticker on the door?

                            Yes, 16 v Twinport
                            New radio (with i-pad connection) fitted with new face (just needs wiring)
                            Water in footwell, not as bad due to sealant (carpet cut out and put back though)
                            New aerial
                            Black grill refitted

                            To do: (unless sold)
                            Central locking
