The Ford Ka Mk2 was introduced in October 2008, and is based on the Fiat 500/Panda. The major changes from the Fiat versions were to the body and the interior. Ford also made some minor changes to the rear suspension and adjusted the engine tune (by amending the engine management software). The Ka is available only as a 3-door hatchback and with a choice of petrol or diesel engines, all of which drive through a 5-speed manual gearbox. A wide range of equipment includes air-conditioning, remote central locking, electric windows, electric sunroof, anti-lock braking system, electronic alarm system and supplemental restraint systems. For the home mechanic, the Ka is a straightforward vehicle to maintain. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Ford repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Ford Ka repair manual is the ideal partner when you’re servicing or repairing your car.
