Here's a few humourous definitions of an expert
A person who knows enough about what's really going on to be scared.
An expert is someone who knows one thing more than you on any given subject. But it doesn***8217;t mean that one thing is right or even real.
But back to the post by Jamilkai!!
1. The speedo problem may be the result of a fault in the speedo sensor wiring whereby the sensor has a poor earth - quite a common problem - so it may be worth investigating that aspect.
2. The noise coming form the window could well be damaged cables or or guides in the window regulator mechanism. The door liner would need to be removed for further investigation.
3. The paint odour problem may be solved by cleaning the area with thinners (make sure the engine is cold first) and allowing it to dry off for an hour or so. Start the engine until the area is slightly warm - switch off the engine and let it sit overnight with the bonnet open. Any remaining smells should disapate over a few days at most.
Good Luck Jamilkai
