Bis and pieces

Can you advise me from where my garage may be able to order a spare part for my Fiat Bis 126 purchased 31st August l989, one owner, mileage 26,682? At the last MOT my previous garage gave me an Advisory Notice with the following comment "nearside front (king pin has slight play) steering pivot has slight play (2.2.B.1g).” My present garage tell me they are unable to order the part they need in this country and that it would be extremely expensive to have it sent from Italy. Are you able to perhaps advise me of a supplier in this country? I am an 80+ driver but know very little about the mechanics of my car. My car is in excellent condition and as far as I am aware this is the only thing that would prevent it from getting its next MoT, which is in August. Thanking you in anticipation

Google tells me there are two clubs at www.fiat126.co.uk and club126uk.co.uk/index.php?ind=topsite Joining one of them would be a very good move, but they may help you anyway. This link may find you the part: www.find-a-part.com/fiat-parts/126 . Or this link: www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/freeads/fiat_126.htm Hope that helps.
