Have been lurking for a while.

Sadly, our 2014 Pop Cabrio, second owner with alloys and 60K miles was totaled over the Easter weekend.

What is the best way to value it for insurance claim ?

I looked for more than a year for that particular car and think it will be even harder now to find a replacement.

All advice needed !

Many thanks

David Graves

There don't seem to be any that have sold on EBAY motors.

Timing belt replacement on a 2012 Sport w/pics http://www.fiat500usaforum.com/showthread.php?37838-Timing-belt-replacement-on-a-2012-Sport-w-pics&goto=newpost Fri, 02 Apr 2021 17:16:47 GMT
Replacing the belt at 105,000 miles as I'm selling the car and think it will add value compared to others out there approaching the 10 year mark and still having the original belt. Especially with potential buyers finding out how much they would have to spend at a shop to do the job. Bought the belt at the dealer and its made by Gates in England. I'll decide later after examining the tensioner and water pump condition if I will replace those too. Other than basic hand tools, the only specialty tool I bought was this timing set on Amazon for $36: https://www.amazon.com/DPL-TOOLS-Eng...a-848059164383

Anyways, here goes, and the order of procedures isn't always set in stone so you could have done work up top before raising the car for example.

Put the car on jack stands, then remove the belly pan under the engine and then the right wheel.

Remove the air box assembly, disconnect the hoses from the PCV oil separator and then remove the separator.

Remove the hose to the vacuum pump and unbolt the bracket around the vacuum pump so you can swing it up out of the way. May have to remove an electrical connector clipped to it. Unbolt the vacuum pump and pull it off the engine. Expect some oil to come out.
