Saw a black Wind in the car park of the William Harvie Hospital Ashford Kent earlier this week.

If it was you I hope you weren't there for serious reasons.

We were just visiting someone.

Hi Pittstop. No it wasn't us....I do hope that nothing is amiss with any of our local black Wind owners.....or any colour for that matter !!
Were You in your Wind at the time?

Not in the Wind that day.

My wife has very recently changed her Captur for a new Honda Jazz EX Navi CVT. 

Good choice in my opinion.

Good choice indeed.
I decided to bite the bullet and have the cam and water pump changed on our Wind last week....we've only had it a month, and although it had only done 26,000 miles in its 9 years, after reading advise given by others on the forum, I opted to get it replaced as it had not been done previously....it wasnt too expensive at £400....but has now shown up a slight problem with the auxiliary belt / pulley and rubber mounting ???...all being replaced for another £200😣.....lets hope thats it for a while....!!!!
Any other common issues that you know of ?

Kerbing of wheels lol.
Grease needed in catches above the front winscreen and in the hinges in the lid after all dirt cleaned out. 
And enjoying the comments

Thanks Barbs....I've bought a tube of silicone grease and put some on the rubbers above the windscreen as well...Ive also got an occasional whistle from the top of the drivers side window somewhere, but do you think I can locate it ?....not a chance. Any ideas from anyone?????

Try a reset on the windows open the window fully and close a couple of times but make sure the door is shut while doing it. Might help

Still whistling intermittently....cant see any obvious reason, and not letting any water in.....may just have to put up with it ...
