Re: Replacing OEM Philips tape player

Forgot to add, if anyone would like the OEM radio/tape player, you're welcome to it. Last time I used it, the sound from the radio was OK, but the tape sounded muffled. Probably needs a good clean.

Re: Replacing OEM Philips tape player

It's the PC99-X15. With that and a Pioneer patch lead I already had, the aftermarket unit is now working, complete with all stalk controls. The thing is, with the extra wiring, adaptor and block connector back there, the head unit doesn't quite go all the way back into the aperture. So the next job ...

Replacing OEM Philips tape player

OK, apologies if this has been covered before. I *did* search <embarrassed face>! I've found a bargain Pioneer all-singing all-dancing head unit to replace the OEM Philips radio/tape player in my 1998 GLX saloon. Do any of you know which stalk control adaptor I need? The Autoleads PC99-X24 that's li...

Re: WTB CD player

Hi Kelv,
Thank you for that - I didn’t know the earlier CD players were Philipses.

WTB CD player

Do any of you have an unwanted OEM CD player please? I'd like to replace the tape player in my 1998 D8, but still keep the facia looking neat. If this is possible, I understand the CD player will have to be coded to my VIN?
Thanks, Nick

Re: WANTED - ROOF BARS

Wag, did you find some? I’ve got a pair off a 406 estate (unbranded AFAIK, supposed to be lockable but there’s no key :oops: ). I’m in Sussex but can find out postage etc.

Biting point adjustment

I've bought a replacement 406 estate, to replace our old one that failed its MoT beyond economic repair. The "new" one is a 2000 D9 with the old 1.8 engine. Runs fine, long MoT, clean inside. One or two things not working, but fixable. But... the clutch biting point is close to the floor, which mean...

2003 1.8 estate spares or repair

2003 1.8 petrol Rapier estate for spares or repair. MoT failure, needs brake servo and most likely master cylinder. 143,300 miles with full service history. Recent front brakes, new clutch in 2015, tyres all good including spare. Everything works except of course the remote central locking. 2 keys! ...

Re: MoT failed, needs servo

OK, I've given up the search for a brake servo. I'll post a "For sale" in case any of you would like the car for spares or repair.

MoT failed, needs servo

After 4 years of reasonably cheap motoring my 406 (2003 petrol 1.8 estate) has failed its MoT. My local Peugeot engineer says it will need a new servo, and a new master cylinder because you might as well... And part of the exhaust. But he doesn't think he can even *get* a replacement servo, and reck...

Re: Mayonnaise on dipstick

2000 miles and 1 new MoT later the mayo has not returned. Maybe the K-Seal did the trick, or maybe it was just the longer journeys and healthier running, but all is well for now...

Re: 7 seater wanted

Thank you all for your feedback - even the white van suggestion. (I like your thinking :lol: . My wife, on the other hand...) But I've not seen a people carrier for hire for that long weekend for less than about £300, and nothing closer than Gatwick Airport or Brighton. Probably just in an expensive...

7 seater wanted

My extended family and I are going to a wedding over the August bank holiday weekend, so we'll need a 7 seater. I've looked at the cost of hiring an MPV or a minibus for that weekend, and it's eye-watering. So in the spirit of "Better the devil you know", do any of you have a 7 seater 406 anywhere n...

Re: Mayonnaise on dipstick

Thank you all for your replies. After another oil and filter change, and a 400-mile round trip, there are still traces of sludge on the dipstick, so I'm not optimistic. I'll try and get her through the MoT at minimal cost next month, and start looking for a replacement. I'll miss her, because everyt...
