Re: My GTX

Well I think the 600 mile trip over the weekend has finished off the noisy rear wheel bearing, where it used to rumble under heavy cornering and at around 70 mph it now rumbling constantly. A quick search and phone around found that ECP would get me one for £ 77, and a few if the local motor factors...

Download festival, 3 days or rock music :twisted:

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I took the GTX to download at the weekend, me the wife and a boot load of stuff and 600 miles. I got 54 mpg on the trip computer, worked out on the calculator at 52 mpg. I was going to go in the 924 but the 406 has cruise control which made the m6 and a50 easier and I felt easier leaving it in a fie...

Re: My GTX

Well I couldn't wait and while it's still warm out I carried on, and fitted the air con compressor, boost pipe and other bits. Hmm must sort that rust out. https://i.imgur.com/DPwPqxb.jpg Also while under the thing I noticed the lower engine mount has started to let go. And for the time being I can'...

Re: My GTX

Didn't get chance to start the sump job at the weekend, ended up having to visit family :roll: Anyway had a spare hour this morning so got things rolling. All the crap out of the way, bit annoying that you have to take the tensioner off but there we go. https://i.imgur.com/fi7AYPJ.jpg Aircon pump ti...

Re: My GTX

Yeah the ac compressor is bolted to the sump so will have to come off. But there should be enough flex in the hoses to allow me to move it out the way and remove the sump without having to completely remove the pump. If I have to remove it though it's not a problem as it could probably do with being...

Re: My GTX

I could but to do it properly and not risk making it worse the sump would have to come off, so might as well put a new one on. I tried with some ptfe but It didn't work and still leaked. I found a new one for £50 and it should be here Friday.

Re: My GTX

Had some more bad luck with the GTX or maybe this is normal for French car ownership :roll: Anyway after the undertray let go the other week I've noticed small oil drips where the 406 parks. Got it up in the air this morning and the sump plug is leaking (im sure most will already know where this is ...

Yeah that's ok, plus the postage which shouldn't be too much. I will package it up and get a price over the next few days.
Thanks
