Tailgate handle where number plate lights are

Hi, Anyone know how the handle cowling is held on? I closed my tailgate with a bit of a push today and heard a crack. The right side of cowling is ever so slightly loose: minor movement. Thought it might have cracked inside or a clip has come loose. Will have to remove the interior door card, but is...

Re: New member

I've now had the 406 almost a year. I prefer it from my wife's Focus estate 15 plate, enjoy the cheap running, almost 50 to the gallon on a run to Stockport from the midlands over the peaks, love the smooth quiet un-hurried cruise wherever I go, with the ability to boot it if necessary. Settle comfo...

Radio/cd player swap

Can anyone advise on the ability to remove the old clarion radio/cd player, and install another make?
What do I need to do to fit it properly so it looks OK in the dash?
03 plate 2.0 HDI 110 estate.
Thanks
:)

Re: New member

I'll give it a try but the car doesn't need to have the remote working to operate so I'll see how it goes. Don't want to spend £50 at the main dealer getting it fixed if I can help it. Not as if I've forgotten how to use a key, it's just convenient really. If the car came with it not working I dont ...

Re: New member

Thanks for the advice.

I tried the reboot bsi but the the cd player is still dodgy. However, the remote central locking has stopped working now. Can still use the key though.
Tried several times to re learn the key but its not having it.

Re: New member

Thanks guys. Mine doesn't have the cd changer so I was thinking it must be something in the main unit or linked to the small display on the dash. Thought about sending it to clarion but at present I've linked my mobile through an fm transmitter for long runs. The radio units for sale on eBay: Would ...

Hi, Just joined the group. Had 2 previous 406 saloons in the past. One was new and the second one was a couple of years old (rapier) But picked up an 03 plate estate 2.0 HDI estate last June as a cheap second car. It's been great and really comfortable. The space is awesome Rebuilt the rear brakes, ...
