stalling at junctions or to a lesser extent on gear changes. The fix is very
easy and there is no setting up to do afterwards.
This is a common concern and is fairly
straight forward to fix and there is no setting up to do afterwards.
Central door locking inop.
This is quite a common problem of vehicles built between 08.1996 and
01.2000 some technical ability is required to over come this concern.
Loud tappet noise.
The tappet on this slightly outdate engine tend to be a bit noisy, however,
if you find one is particularly noisy then you could possibly have something
more serious going on
Air conditioning leak.
The Air con on a Ka is usually pretty reliable but should it fail then there
are a couple of known concerns to look out for.
Knocking noise from dash area.
If a vehicle emits a knocking noise from the dash area when the heater is
set between min and max then it is a common fault on the Ka
Damp musty smell from air conditioning.
We have to solution to this concern without the need to replace any parts.
If the blower inop on settings 1,2,3 and is accompanied with a burning smell
then we have the answer and it is fairly easy to rectify.

hot or cold and cannot be adjusted.
Brake fluid loss.
There are a couple
of possibilities for this but with a few brief investigations we can
narrow down the area of concern for you.
Front brake pipes adrift
A potentially serious concern but
very easily avoided

usually quite easy to identify the causal parts
Ka with air conditioning knocking
