Hello, I recently bought a 1998 Felicia 1.9d, really love it, but I am experiencing a couple of issues:

- The left hand dipped headlight seems to work intermittently, have checked the wiring around the actual lamp and everything seems fine there, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, i have noticed that it tends to work more often when the car has actually been moving.

- The fan/blower/heater, whatever is the correct term, also seems to be operating intermittently, when it is working it is either full force or just a little. The temperature aspect works fine but the actual blower has been on and off since i bought the car..

the third enquiry I have is to do with the clutch/transmission, i'm not sure if it is even a problem, but there is a very noticible clicking sound whenever the clutch is engaged or disengaged, and often a slight rattle as i am travelling along.

Any help here would be very much appreciated as it would be really good if i could sort these problems out by myself rather than going to a mechanic.

Regards, Andrew.

Heater blower - have a look on here about the brushes; a common issue is that they stick a bit, stopping power getting into the motor, or the springs can give up.

Other electrical issues - the fuse boxes on Felicias can give trouble, often because of the water leak that is common, so have a look at the fuse box (again, common thing on here, search for fuse box).

Gearbox noise is difficult with a description like that, but search for "fifth gear nut" or similar, see if that is what you're getting?

      Hi everyone. 
       
      I'm new to the community and I've been searching around for abit trying to solve my problem but I've not seen a solution anywhere. Sorry if there is a thread about this.
       
      So I've got a HID Conversion on my Fabia vrs 2006 the problem I'm getting is when the lights are turned off or on the sidelight setting when I brake the bulb warning light comes on. But if I put the lights on fully I don't get this issue.. none of my bulbs are out. They are all LED converted. Ive posted on the Facebook Fabia owners group and still no help. If you need any more info please let me know

      Good afternoon. I need help please with my skoda felicia of the year 2000.The speed tachometer stopped working, the fan shuts off and turns on only, the same thing happens to the air conditioning. The lights and the rest of functions works well. It seems to be an electrical problem. Any suggestions? Thank you so much

      Hi all,
       
      Long time listener first time caller. Skoda felicia Fun owner.
       
      Does anyone know if its possible to mount the skoda felicia fun pickup shell to another chassis, say a MK4 golf?
       
      Has it been done before any recommendations for an easier job?
       
      Thanks

      So I'm washing the car - and this is one fly I can't get rid of. It's inside my rear light cluster.  Any suggestions on how to get it out?!?  I hate flies at the best of times.
