How to repair SEAT yourself: common malfunctions

Easy maintenance is one of the main advantages of SEAT cars. Their spare parts are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased at any automotive shop. In addition, many failures can be fixed by yourself, which allows to save money on the services of garages. Even a novice will easily handle maintenance jobs with the help of AUTODOC Club step-by-step video tutorials on SEAT repair.

Engine

Owners of the SEAT Cordoba with the MPI 12V engine of 1.2 litres displacement often complain about metal knocking in the engine compartment, especially after cold engine start. Sometimes it is impossible to start the engine at all. The cause lies in malfunction of the timing chain tensioner and an imperfect design of its guide. In order to eliminate the defect, you need to install a new tensioner and a longer guide. An illustrated SEAT repair guide provided in PDF format will help you with that.

In the SEAT Leon 1M, Arosa 6H, Ibiza 6K, Alhambra 7V, 7M models, the turbocharger breaks down quite fast. This is accompanied by engine power loss, jerks when it’s running, excessive smoke emission, low dynamic performance. There are many causes of incorrect operation of the component. Some of them can be removed by yourself at home. For instance, you can inspect and clean or replace, if necessary, the air filter, MAF sensor, turbocharger intake pipe; check the fuel line for tightness and remove a leakage. Our recommendations and video guides will help you to do these jobs without errors.

Clutch

The clutch of the SEAT Alhambra 7V may slip. The problem is usually caused by the loss of tightness of the clutch release cylinder. In order to fix the fault, you need to replace it together with the release bearing and the clutch assembly. Following a SEAT repair and maintenance guide step by step you will be able to perform replacement yourself without assistance of specialists.

Body

n the SEAT Ibiza and SEAT Cordoba models, noise may be heard in the area of the front doors. To eliminate this problem, you need to ensure a snugger fit of the side mirror housings to the car body. Sometimes it is enough just to enlarge the hole in the door panel with the help of a needle-point file. Take into account that this area should be treated with a corrosion-resistant compound. You can find more information about how to remove car body defects in our DIY SEAT repair and service manual, which can be downloaded absolutely for free.
