wiper... 21" and 19"
change to silicone.. quite ok compare original..

mine 2nd hand 2002 1.6A... i already use 2 years...

your question?

1) mine also have and my many2 friend use waja also have..
maybe this is waja charactheristic... for its sharp handling..
2 & 3) sorry.. i dunno
4) check ur rubber seal which all cable from engine went through ur firewall.. Maybe, one of them already tear / wear off or not install properly.. if all ok, the water splash noise are not so loud like wira... but still u can't prevent the sound even u soundproof ur firewall / wheel well..

1. There is a weird noise when ever i turn left or right (sharp turns). I took the car to Proton and they checked the car and said it could be suspension or anti roll-bar bushings that have worn out, but they need to open and check to confirm.

2. They also spotted that the cross-member bar is touching the gearbox which is most probably due to a hard hit on a bump. Proton said they will try to pull it back out or worst case have to replace that bar. (its right under the car supporting the engine, positioned under the gearbox)

For Q1,2 please check the front wheel stabilizer, most probably is broken near the wheels, either right or left, so that is why when you make a turn it sound at that turn

3.I feel a lag of power when i drive outstation , mainly on highways. When Proton was checking my car i noticed a blue color center bullet which is definetly not original proton part. The car also needs a service, could that be the issue.

That piece of definitely not original proton does not contribute lag of power as much as it should. Its not easy to tell what is your feel are but, good rules of thumb, service your car with proper parts.
1. engine oil
2. plug
3. plug cable
4. air filter

once you get new stuff even the oe will make your drive feel better, if not , maybe something else is bothering

4.Once was driving in the rain , very heavy rain and 3-5 drops of water just dripped on my accelerator pedal, also when ever i drive in the rain i can practically here the water noise splashing with my tyres . Proton said it could be a wiring harness box that is loose or open. Must check to confirm.

This sound serious problem. It could be a hole in the wheel cover area... really must check

ADDITIONALY: All waja comes with a design flaw where the air cond blower area will condensate water when is too cold and then it will drip the condensates to your auto trans controller unit. If you drive a waja, is best you cover up that tranny controller.

well guys i am going to send the car to proton for service and all and they will check all this problems but i would like to know if u guys could giv me any pointers on wad tis problems could be.

i also am not happy with my wipers , wad is the size of waja wipers

thx in advance guys

good luck

thx guys for ur replies.

wch5274 > the noise when driving in the rain is much louder then my previous car a proton wira, this is as loud as driving with my window slightly open, i am very sure there is a hole somewhere. Proton said its most probably the main wiring harness box is open and not closed properly.

jeffayn> ok, so the noise from the wheel while steering could be the front stabilizer bar. il ask proton to check it and il update it.

well bro, so the centre bullet will not cause power lag so i guess i should service my car then.

yea the sound near the wheel is damn loud , like yesterday while driving in the rain , i could practically hear my car tyres splashing through the water on the road. Very weird la, i hope its nothing major

THe TCU is not the level lar... It's a computer box with electronic chips inside...
It's hidden within the dashboard...

1. There is a weird noise when ever i turn left or right (sharp turns). I took the car to Proton and they checked the car and said it could be suspension or anti roll-bar bushings that have worn out, but they need to open and check to confirm.
its due to the coil spring rubbing against the absorber strut. try to spray some lube like wd40 and if the problem still there, remove the coil spring and wrap with some thin rubber like tube etc..it will goes off. mine happened b4 and the svc centre did that.

2. They also spotted that the cross-member bar is touching the gearbox which is most probably due to a hard hit on a bump. Proton said they will try to pull it back out or worst case have to replace that bar. (its right under the car supporting the engine, positioned under the gearbox)
its a metal, can remove it and bend it back to normal....use hammer..no need to replace it, quite costly.

3.I feel a lag of power when i drive outstation , mainly on highways. When Proton was checking my car i noticed a blue color center bullet which is definetly not original proton part. The car also needs a service, could that be the issue.
the centre bullet in fact give u more power, direct the air out to exhaust thus shorten the air distance. try check yr brake, all 4 disc brake, worry the brake might jammed so when at high speed it lagg. another problem is as mentioned from some taikors here, service, change plug, engine oil, auto oil, auto filter and not forgetting to tune it....proton svc ctr know how to do it. air filter need to be change too.

4.Once was driving in the rain , very heavy rain and 3-5 drops of water just dripped on my accelerator pedal, also when ever i drive in the rain i can practically here the water noise splashing with my tyres . Proton said it could be a wiring harness box that is loose or open. Must check to confirm.
look underneath the steering and see there is a few holes that enable wire harness to poss thru it and see if the rubber seal is loosen or missing, get it replace...diy will do
2nd thing which i hope its not la.....car met accident b4 and the dashboard not properly fitted and the chassis bent therefore rubber seal cant fit properly.

well guys i am going to send the car to proton for service and all and they will check all this problems but i would like to know if u guys could giv me any pointers on wad tis problems could be.

go to mutiara damansara proton svc or sect 13 pj near dutch lady svc ctr, they care more capable in troubleshooting it. pm me if u need their contacts.....

i also am not happy with my wipers , wad is the size of waja wipers...get OEM wiper...bout rm58 one set.

thx in advance guys
juz my 2cents....if wrong info don blame me ya....cheerz

sorry for the late reply. when is raining so its cold, when you on the aircond the condensation become very fast and water will start dripping and it will fall into the controller unit.

The controller unit is not the gear console there but its beneath the radio box ( under dash board) to protect it very easy, just use a plastic bag and bag it la... hahaa
