The owner believed it was one of the best in the market for sale at that price, but he should have done a good cleanup on it it's hard to explain but it did not grab me so...

Re: how to replace rubber outer door handle seals?

It's a bit of fidly job you need to take your door panel of then put your window up first.

Wken you look at the handle from the inside there is a slide on it you need to push in and then push the door handle out and then replace the seal.

Re: Cars overheating, worried

Check the radiator fan thermal switch it is located on the top left of the radiator
the electric fan should kick in when the temp goes past the centre of your gauge if not the switch is RS easy to replace.

Re: removing carpet behind seats

Hi
Yes you will need to peal back the carpet to get access to the top mounts, then undo the two nuts on each then jack the car up then remove the shocks.
