Title: 2000 (X) Plate 2.2 CD Saloon LPG - Spares or Repairs
Post by: tunnie on 06 March 2017, 09:07:14
Time has come to let me 2.2 go, I need my driveway space back. I was planning to strip some bits off it and then donate it to local fire station, so they can practice saving lives on it. But thought I would offer it here first with all bits on, as I really don't have the time to strip the bits of value off.

As a shell it's not worth much, it's a on 191k miles. Cambelt/pump last done about 2 years ago, exhaust less than a year old. No leaks from cam cover or coolant leaks, engine wise it's spot on.

The LPG system was fitted by LazyDocker in 2009, it's never gone wrong it's never missed a beat since fitted at 130k and is still working well, even has 1/4 tank of gas in it. It's a 90L tank, with injection system. (not mixer) - It's also on the LPG register, so no problems with insurance. Bodywork wise it's got some nocks and bashes, as it is 191k miles. The bumper has scuffs, due to a life in London as for a while each time I came back to it, someone had clipped it.

The bad news is that it needs welding, the sills around backdoors are shot and would need sorting. The clutch is on it's last legs as well, although it still drives fine. The aircon/climate is bust and the drivers door lock has failed and the interior front drivers seat has seen better days. (Although no rips or tears, it's just needs a damn good clean!)

On the upside i'm throwing in lots of stuff:

1) It's currently sitting on late Elite 17" alloys, the Nexen tyres fitted are shot and alloys can do with a re-furb.
2) I'm also chucking in 4 x CDX Facelift alloys, which are in excellent condition, 2 of them have near brand new Khumo KU39's the other 2 have legal depth.
3) Thrown in as well are 4 x Facelift CD alloys with Dunlop Winter Sport 3D tyres, used back in 2012 for a run to Austria and back. Alloys are in excellent condition and tyres have decent tread.
4) 3 un-marked door trims, I bought a set to replace one damaged one.
5) Load of spin on oil filters.
6) Spare exhaust manifold gasket and nuts


 I'll post some better pictures later in the week, it's currently SORN and would need taking away.


The LPG bits alone are worth a few quid as are the winter tyres, I know i would probably make a bit more selling them off as individual bits.

350 but open to offers.

Yes manual.... it had about 10 months MOT on it when I parked it up, it passed with sill issue. I suspect if you put them back on, it would pass another MOT without a problem. Let me dig the thread out with the photos...

Ignorance is bliss! But having discovered the issue I did not feel comfortable taking my daughter and wife places with such a serious issue, hence it was parked up.   

But I think a SORN means you must re-mot?  :-\

I would love to see her get a new bit of life, if someone had time to spend a couple of weekends on her and knows how to weld it will be good to go again. Easily 27mpg on gas so 50+mpg running costs.  :y :y

The sills have to be really bad for the covers not to hide them! I discovered that my drivers side has  holes in it when welding the arch/door shut, but them not being visible without some dismantling means I can do the work when it's convenient to me.


Sills are an easy job and at 35 a panel, affordable.




I would be much more concerned about the chassis rails above the front subframe; rot there would be enough to kill my car.

So does it have any Mot left, or when did you park it up with 10 months left.  :-\

or you could PM me the Reg.  :y

Sorn has nothing to do with a Re Mot.  ;)

A bit of a historic event, Tunnie parting company with the Desmond.
Hard to believe that it was seven years ago you and LD fitted the LPG to it.  :o

Few more photos...

I'd put it back on CDX alloys and sell the Elites separately if required, I'd also sell the CD alloys running Winter Sport3D tyres separately as well.

If the mot is still valid then just re-tax and off you go :y
