Re: and today i have mostly been...

Stress? indeed, she asked if I had a stressful job... I get a lot of sh*t passed my way but I'm not the sort who says "f*ck it" usually but I am coming round to the thought that I might HAVE to let things slip and let people down a bit more, not easy when you're tasked with competitive tendering to ...

That might be a better outcome then if it's the same thing, you'll know more after the blood tests etc, I'm sure they can even tell if your heart's dicky from the blood itself etc. I've been to the quacks today actually; been on high blood pressure meds for about 5 months and they're not working wel...

Re: Idiot neighbour...

What do the Americans say again? don't get mad get even.... Easy to say that though, sounds like the Neighbour's being 'ageist' towards you. I keep myself to myself mainly because I don't really like most other people's selfishness and self-entitled behavior these days however I have started to make...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Worst thing was this morning when I jumped into the Volvo of Doom to go to work, I'd forgotten the fuel light came on last Friday so that demanded a large expensive drink too.

I reckon I'm supporting the economy myself at the moment in fuel-based taxation...

I thought you'd been quiet, sorry to hear you've been off colour, over here they'd call that a "Virus" [read: we don't know what's wrong with you].

Re: Suspect rear wheel bearing problem

Rear knocking on 406's is often the anti-roll bar D-bushes IIRC.

Have you had the wheel in the air to check for play etc?

If you spin the wheel by hand and grab onto the nearest suspension you should be able to 'feel' the bearings rumbling.

Guess who's had 4 x wheel bearings fitted this year?

Re: 406 2.0 hdi Cambelt change mileage?

True story:

I once bought a Mazda MX6 with the 2.5V6 petrol engine, it had low miles but was 3 YEARS overdue a cambelt, a very nervous trek back home with it and got it straight in for a new belt.

The old belt was perfect :roll:

Re: 406 2.0 hdi Cambelt change mileage?

It's worth knowing that HDi cambelt failures are not really a 'thing' on this forum or rather they're not known for snapping belts at random however you should get it done if you value the car for your own use. They would be more likely to suffer a tangled Aux Belt which then snaps the cambelt; this...

Another fan of the 508 here :cheesy: Is depreciation the same sorry state its always been with large french barges? this wouldn't matter so much if the purchase price was lower; in fact that's what got me into my 406 exec, I was looking at VW Passats :roll: and saw I could get a much newer/better ca...

Re: 14 Volts with engine running

In the end I managed to bag a bargain from ebay, located in Lithuania :shock: I made an offer for £5.00 off the asking price and had one delivered for £29.00 all in :D

Fitted it last night and it works perfect!

Re: 2005 2.2HDi Coupe. Gunk in fuel system...or so I believe.

Completely puzzled as to what that orange stuff could be? :? Most 2.2HDi's now have had all the emissions gubbins bypassed and the FAP and eoloys fluid systems turned off, the car is MUCH better off without it all especially at higher mileage. This thread should hopefully attract the attention of a ...

Re: Tyre Pressure Gauges

It must be the lorry driver in you, it's very sensible to keep TP's in check, I still adjust my pressures for motorway driving and fully loaded etc, it might seem OTT to some but I've never had a tyre let go at 80MPH etc etc.... Plus Steve if you ever needed that sack truck in a hurry you'll be good...

Re: Tyre Pressure Gauges

I was bought one of these by my boss years ago, works very well and it gets really thrown about with other tools.
