  1. I found those, but it's differed shape from current one so I didn't bother. And also I would need to drill extra holes in new part. Original:
  2. Nah, didn't bother anymore. Couldn't find it on ebay or so I'm satisfied with speed 3 and 4
  3. So today I managed to fix some things. Now blower is working on position 3 and 4 - which is a progress. As I assumed, the problem was at blower motor relay, which I couldn't find the other day. I follow workshop manual step by step, checking wires and voltage, and everything is ok now. The problem is still with blower motor resistor. I check ohms on terminals, and couldn't get results from 2 terminals - I assumed that is damaged. So my question now is, where could I find a new one? Any helpful link? Thanks Position of relay One of the connection was broken So I changed all connectors with new p.s. Workshop manual 626 & MX-6/Work Shop Manuals/PDF/1992 US Workshop Manual_OCR.pdf
  4. I checked all terminals and looks good, no mark of corrosion. I'll check with light as you said. Thanks Yes, forgot to mention that - first thing that I checked. The only thing that I didn't check is Blower motor relay, because I don't know where it is. I checked workshop manual now, but still have no clue where that could be.

  5. Hay all! My blower motor in Mazda doesn't work, so I start hunting down what could be. Found some different threats about Blower motor resistor and so on, but still couldn't fix the problem. I took out Blower motor, connect to 12 V and works fine. I took out blower motor resistor and have no idea if it's good or not (check pictures). I clean it a bit, but still quite rusty. I tried with instrument and it has ~0.5Ω on some pins. I thought that green stuff could be some kind of corrosion but guy at wreck shop said that is isolation? So I took instrument and start checking if there is any 12 V on connector, but nothing get's there. So when I change my switch level from 0 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 nothing happens and there is no 12V on any of connectors (I checked on Blower motor and resistor). But when I change to position 1 and 2, ECO light goes ON and radiator fan start working, on position 3 and 4 light go OFF and radiator fan stop working. I don't know how those things are connected? Otherwise my radiator fan work after my temperature goes above 90 (or whenever thermostat open it). So my questions are: 1. Is that Blower motor resistor looks good or should I change it? Where could I find one? Been to local wreck shops and they have same as my (old rusty), but couldn't found new one. 2. How can I test existing Blower motor resistor if it works? 3. Where should I get 12 V before goes to resistor? I saw on Mazda forum that on position 4 (full speed) that should bypass resistor and motor should work. 4. Any other solution how to get it work? No I won't change car p.s. It's Mazda Capella (626) Cargo, 1989, 2.0 diesel
  6. Oh forgot to show video of rally. So after the rally I got a private message on Facebook, that one guy want to give me his Fiat 126p if I want. I asked him about details, but he was just saying: "It was from grandmother, I don't know the condition of the car, but before she passed away she was driving with it. Come take a look, and if you want I give it for free." I couldn't sleep for few days, and after a month or so, we finally went to pick up another Fiat 126p. Parked out from garage Loaded on truck Back home Brothers Than I started cleaning My friend polished it for me Driving around with it and figure it out that rear breaks need a bit of attention - quick fix So yes, car is running ok - he should get some attention but for short distance is good. Otherwise it is 1981, with the same 650ccm 2 cylinder engine, produce all 24 horse power. The only difference with one I've been to rally is that they got different bumpers - older models hat chrome, newer had plastic. Later on there were also Fiat 126p BIS, which was 700ccm and watercooled. Also interior was different. Thats all about Fiats maybe some Opels later if anyone is interested?
  7. Currently in Blenheim. Definitely when we will be in your area will contact you, and will stop by. I love your car list Otherwise I'm a fan of Opel, so we got something in common. Maybe I should rename my topic and show all the car's that I own before I came to NZ?
  8. You probably mean Zastava or FSM? This one is FSM

  10. So this was my project - currently on wait, because Im away from home. If is in wrong threat or something, please admins / mods to move it. I didnt find any "trips" raleted section. About the car. Its Polski Fiat 126p, produced in Poland on 1985. It is 2 cylinder aircooled engine with 24hp. Car weight around 620kg without any gear. Story of a car... 3 years ago I managed to save Fiat 126p from 1985 from one of the Slovenians fields. The story of the car was, that was in a garage for 5 years, than they have birthday party in that garage, put it out and never went back to garage. So it was in the field for few years before I bought it. When the owner agree to sell the car, we went to pick the car in style As every "project" start I wash it to see how it really looks. The story behind why I bought that car is that I wanted to participate in the biggest amateur rally in world, called Budapest - Bamako 2018. Because to the finish line of the rally is around 8600km I had to "fix" the car before I start with the rally. I found brand new engine in Poland, sitting in the attic of the house from 1987. When I get the engine with 0km on the clock, we open it, change all seals and anything that was "need" to be changed after so years and kick to start it. Because I had to remove my back seats for travelling material, I installed some isolation to prevent noise from back of the car. After we fit the engine in the car, change all the bearings and everything need to be changed around suspension, my friend polished car for me for my friend wedding. Because I didn't want to go to rally with 0km on the clock, me and my girlfriend decided to make a quick trip around Dolomites and the sea. The whole trip was Slovenia - Austria - Italy - Switzerland - Liechtenstein - Switzerland- France- Italy - Slovenia. We did together 4117km in 15 days with a lot of 2000m+ mount passing and nice routes. Breakdowns? Both brand new rear tyres were worn because of new back suspension - the position of the car was to high. So meanwhile we got some sponsors and had to "decorate" car with the stickers before we start the rally. In 12. January 2018 we started from Slovenia, the goal was Banjul in Gambia. We reach the finish line on 28. January and we did 8395 KM. Because I didn't want to sell the car in Gambia, and I didn't want to spend money on the boat shipping I decided to drive it back home. I reach back home in Slovenia 17. February 2018. Me and my car did together 17.200km in 36 days. I spend around 1135L of fuel had to change front right bulb and 2 tyre tubes (they were a little bit to big ). Engine in rally Engine back home The car is still running good, but it is in vintage car museum in Slovenia, because I'm currently in New Zealand.
