Just bought a 1.6HDi - a few questions
#1
I've been looking for a 1.6 to replace my '04 2.0HDi and found a silver 2008 Desire with 130k miles over the weekend for a good price, it's got quite a few extras and a few bits that I have some questions for:

Extras (all factory fit AFAIK)

Aircon (not working)
Auto Wipers (manic with anything more than a few drops)
Auto Lights (not sure how this works)
Trip Computer type B MFD with outside temp

Stuff that I'm not sure about

The clutch pedal squeaks and engages right at the bottom of travel. Apart from the squeak, is this normal or is the cable adjuster not doing it's job / can I move the bite point?

There's a whining sound as the engine revs up, perhaps the aux belt which looks new, but wondered if that's normal?

The steering wheel is worn away around the edges, not sure if there's a cover anyone can recommend, or do I need a new wheel?

The MAF is faulty, or at least that's what the OBD reader says and I get 'anti-pollution fault' on the MFD. I seem to remember quite a few posts about this so will do some digging.

Cruise Control. I've read all the posts so am not too hopeful about this without changing the speedo, but wondered if this late model might have it enabled, will report back.

Only 1 key, fortunately its the remote. I may need to resort to putting the transponder chip above the lock barrel.

Air con, may just need re-gassed.

Auto wipers, mine do that also, they're a waste of time, I would rather have standard wipers.

Auto Lights, don't like them so have them deactivated, can't really remember how to set them on or off but I'm sure it's in the handbook or online.

The clutch is hydraulic so no adjustment is available.

The low biting point could be air in the system you could try bleeding the clutch hydraulics.

The squeak could be from the clutch master cylinder, it could be tired and that could also be the cause of the low biting point check for leaks at the master & slave.

The wiring noise isn't normal,  but all engines have some sort of noise.
Try to pin point the sound, you could remove the aux belt to rule it out.

There's any amount of steering wheel covers out there, you should be able to find a replacement wheel if you want one.

Not sure about the MAF fault.

Clutch on our squeaks but I've always assumed the pivot needs oiling, bites near the top.

Aux belt noise could be one of the pulleys on it starting to go - usually though they 'whizz' at higher speeds.

Key, doing that but found that the manual door lock (gosh, how old fashioned) needed stripping and oiling as it was full of crap.

All the other stuff - no idea :-)

Thanks for the replies folks, I'll do some more investigation over the next few days. Given the mileage & lack of service history since about 40k I'll be doing the cambelt, oil & filter very soon so will take a closer look at the aux belt then. As I mentioned, the aux belt looks new, as does the alternator so maybe it's one of those. I found the setting for the auto lights in the handbook and will see how that goes.
