Re: Clearing up Dulled/yellowed headlights

Oh some headlights (acrylic blends) the chemicals or even just meths wiped over them will take the bulk of the oxidation off, a lot of modern cars however (inc. the 406) are a copolymer with polycarbonate, which it won't work on - in which case it's elbow grease time, I just did mine for the 406, st...

Re: Battery current at rest

That suggests an 096, (75Ah) battery should still have 50% capacity after 750 hours or about a month at a 50mA discharge rate. Obviously the chances of it still starting the car will vary according to temperature, but 3 - 4 weeks in the summer shouldn't be a problem. To be fair my bro's current 110...

Re: Do D8 V6 Head Gasket Kits exist?

Think that was the previous engine that was also used in the Renaults.

Re: Polyurethane Lower Subframe Bushes, engine mounts

Does anyone just want the bushes? I've got someone wanting me to split for the engine mount.

Re: Lower gearbox mounting bush orientation

It has the rubber 'arms' go vertically - that lets it move a little front to rear to absorb vibration.
Although, many times I've put them in horizontally as a poor mans stiffened engine mount :D

Re: Polyurethane Lower Subframe Bushes, engine mounts

Had a couple ask about holding these - sorry, but I've had a couple of people ask me that to start with, held onto them and then never heard back, hence wanting them out of the way, so I'm afraid it's just going to be first come, first served at this price.

Re: Polyurethane Lower Subframe Bushes, engine mounts

Sick of seeing these, someone get them out of my way :lol:

If bought together (1 x set of mounts, 1 x engine mount) I'll do the lot at £130 - so £40 discount - basically you get the engine mount for a tenner. It cost me more than that to make it just in materials :|

Polyurethane Lower Subframe Bushes, engine mounts

I've got 2 full sets of polyurethane bushes for the front subframes spare from the last group buy, due to non-contact/non-payment, they've collected enough dust over the past few months so I'm putting them back up for sale, first come, first served. You get 4 x Upper Poly Bushes, 4 x Upper Plastic i...

Re: POWER STEERING RACK, REMOVAL

I took the subframe off to do mine, but you might be able to get it out by just lowering the subframe a little on the bolts (with a jack under it just in case)

Re: Freeze release spray experience

It's only cooling whilst the solvent is on there the flash off. As soon as it dries it'll start warming again.

Re: 406 handbrake, what shoes do you use?

I think the only voice that you want to hear is your own. Check the title of the thread. People in here are after solutions to a problem, and all we've had so far is snide remarks about how we're all not fitting/adjusting them right, and one saying I should look at a different car because I don't l...

Re: 406 handbrake, what shoes do you use?

No, I'm just going to fix the problem and not have it hinder me any more, I've already sorted the rest of the brake system so it's better than when it came out of the factory, why settle for a sub-standard handbrake too?
Same as everyone else on here that isn't happy with theirs.
