Re: Another bargain!

Seems to me that members on here with a good known 406 should hang onto it..... Brake servo test I thought was to pump the brake pedal hard with engine off...start engine....pedal will sink a bit....but not hit the floor obvs. I don't know what the problem could be unless the replacement MC has been...

....rescuing 4 stranded Women :shock: Yesterday in that Birmingham I reached the top floor of a multi-story car park (as you do) and there were 4 women stood by a Honda Shitvic and another BMW 1 Series with bonnets up looking perplexed, as I passed them my window was still open from the ticket machi...

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

I dunno about converting it into a manual, can't be arsed with all that, I mean it doesn't even have a clutch pedal and as far as I know when manufacturing a car the fact that it's auto* or manual is crucial in it's early production stage (pedal box/linkages etc)so I'd imagine a conversion being a b...

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

Well, that went well* Does anyone else feel like a little bit more support and understanding would go a long way when dealing with others in a customer/business relationship? :frown: Bear in mind that this second visit to the main dealers was 'gratis' due to the previous paid service being unsuccess...

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

Dropped it off this morning (I've got a 2018 loan car C3 in a pretty shade of powder blue :oops: ) I got to meet the senior tech mechanic and talked about the gearbox/clutch troubles... "err, sorry but these electronic gearboxes aren't very good, some of them we calibrate and never see them again bu...

Just surprised when you said snow but then you do live in Croatia.

We've had a tiny touch of frost so far and this morning the faintest whiff of mist in the air which was so dangerous* people were illuminating their front fog lights because: Fog :frown:

Re: and today i have mostly been...

That's the way! initially the heat will get soaked away by the cold structure and especially the floor, of course retaining heat can only be supported by the use of insulation and preventing air leakage into the space. [granny suck eggs moment] those flue brackets have got a good grip of the tubing ...

Re: Now look who's got a Volvo...

Yeah I see what you mean, when I go to see our biggest customer (maybe 4 times a year) I park around the corner and walk :lol: it would look like something was going wrong with our business turning up in a 14 year old Volvo (I hate this kind of judgement by the way and don't support it) but I do it ...

Re: Now look who's got a Volvo...

I think that's a good choice Sam, can't believe the price, what a bargain! Does anyone else find it very difficult figuring out what the model types actually mean on moderns these days? you could easily end up with an undesirable spec if you didn't do your homework. Whatever happened to L, LX and GL...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I'm liking the flue brackets!

It might warm up after you've got some heat into the fabric of the building (and the floor slab) you probably only need heat to take the edge off the temperature in there because you'll be working flat out in there chopping, sawing, hammering, welding.....

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

Can I have a tenner on "they all do that sir"...

I think that is very likely, coupled with "the clutch is now half worn so what do you expect"...

Google is rife with people complaining about citroen 'EGS' gearboxes; juddering and whatnot.
