Re: 406 scanning codes

Does the fault re-appear after clearing all faults? Maybe the problem has gone. Some faults are not automatically cleared but need to be cleared manually using PP2000. Came across this post in another forum that mentioned: I can only assume that the air ports in the cylinder head are blocked as I ma...

Re: HOW MANY MILES HAS YOUR PUG COVERED?

Time for an update.

Reached 610.000 kms on the 2.0 HDI today (got it at 277,000 kms).

Seems to be running better and smoother than when i got it.

Re: PP2000 flagged fault

Good find on the docs. But I'm not sure there are any resistors. I think it's done with magnets. Maybe some Hall effect thing. Anyway: here's what's inside it: http://www.406oc.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=19303&p=191872 Mine ate throttle position sensors. In the end I had a cycle of two of them: one ...

Re: 406 sri petrol turbo

If you post the VIN number of your car (PM if you like your privacy), i can look up the PSA part number in Service Box. That will make the search for a fitting part easier.

Re: 406 scanning codes

Looking up a 407 in Service Box retrieves part no. 1618E4. But i'm not sure that is the same for a 406.

Hope this helps...

Service Box shows an air pump as "8" in the following diagram, but i cannot seem to find the PSA part number:

Re: PP2000 flagged fault

Your problem is in the "Accelerator Pedal Sensor", more commonly called "Throttle Position Sensor" (TPS). It has two sliders that form a varying resistor, each of both giving a voltage to the engine management computer. I have attached a copy of pages 66 and 67 of the document " DW10ATED Engine.doc ...

Re: How to undo the auxiliary belt excentric roller bolt?

A few years back I repaired the alternator on my daughters 807, using a kit of parts, (bearings, slip-ring assembly, brushes etc). that cost £9 from a guy in Ireland after watching his how-to video on youtube. (Could never have stripped it down without wrecking it prior to watching the video). Conv...

Re: Wanted ECU/BSI/gauges/key set

You only need the odometer to satisfy road tax regulations, isn't it? Thinking out of the box: would installing a separate odometer fulfill the regulations? i.e. a separate counter that you could install next to or below the dashboard? What about installing a GPStracker, would that do? Is the odomet...

@Will, did you ever get to resolve your odometer issue?

Re: Wanted ECU/BSI/gauges/key set

Did you get any response?

Is this for your 999999km HDI that you can no longer drive because it won't count further, while the law in NZ requires a working odometer?

Re: How to undo the auxiliary belt excentric roller bolt?

Thanks for the tips :). The old alternator seemed to be in good shape (apart from the pulley). No grinding bearings or such. As Will says, "secondhand alternators fail not long after replacement", so I will keep the old alternator and in some spare time try to remove and replace the pulley by a new ...

Re: How to undo the auxiliary belt excentric roller bolt?

Replacing the pulley is a mongrel job... I'm not replacing it, as you say special tools are needed. Picked up a second hand alternator yesterday afternoon for € 60; a parts dealer nearby claims to have 85 of them ! I got one that came from a donor car which had ~ 100.000 kms on its meter. I fitted ...

Re: How to undo the auxiliary belt excentric roller bolt?

Just checked, indeed seems to be the clutch pulled seized. I used a screwdriver to try and turn the vanes inside the alternator. It will not turn in either direction; i would have expected them to rotate freely in one direction. Seems it is time for a new (or 2-nd hand) alternator. Thanks for the su...

Re: How to undo the auxiliary belt excentric roller bolt?

Ah, so it is a freewheel? Like the rear wheel of a bycicle, only engages in one direction and runs free in the other?

If it is stuck that would explain.... Will check. Thanks!
