Re: and today i have mostly been...

Extended service intervals are starting to get ridiculous, I think they're mainly targeted at fleet buyers where it's all down to the bean counters, and they don't care about the long term consequences because they won't have the cars for that long. And as far as the manufacturers are concerned, whe...

Re: Handbrake issue, failed MOT

It could be pulling the outer tube with it, stretching it enough to move the shoes a little.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I had a phone call from my mate Goran earlier, apparently Pero has sold my D9. I'm not sure what he replaced it with, I talked him out of a 1.6HDi 508 SW last year... And who is the lucky new owner? Why Goran of course. He said it was a choice between a 2010 unknown or a cheap, well maintained 2004 ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Back from the vet's, Mirela could feel a little lump on her muscle still but she's walking fine. The recommendation was to let her out with the other cats but keep an eye on her (what a surprise!). Also, I spotted a worm near her bum the other day so she's been wormed, now I have to do all the cats ...

Re: Service Box Missing Older Models

That would really be short-sighted then. i wonder if they're using some different system for spares ordering. Hold on... Peugeot parts are also on citroen.service.com, maybe they're using that.

While I'm at it, on Service Box a D9 front grille badge is 23.81 GBP

Re: and today i have mostly been...

:cheesy: :cheesy: Pickle's fine thanks, she seemed ok Saturday evening but we kept her shut in the cat recovery room yesterday (Sunday) 'cos we wanted to keep an eye on her but we were out most of the day. She came downstairs with me this morning, presently hanging around the kitchen with the rest o...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Oddly enough I had to take Pickle to the vet's Friday for similar reasons, Mirela thinks she had a leap too far as she could feel a lump on one of her muscles in her left shoulder. She had pain killer injections Friday and Saturday and I was meant to give her a pill today but I'm not convinced it's ...

Re: Service Box Missing Older Models

I'm glad you've got it sorted but does this mean there's no point in going to the dealers where you are for spares? Wow, that'd be pretty harsh :shock:

Re: Service Box Missing Older Models

What about the spare parts catalogues, do you only get current cars in there too?

Re: Service Box Missing Older Models

Just been having a look about on Service Box (it's been a while), it now has options for Opel/Vauxhall (PSA-based) parts and accessessorieses. Oh, and Chevvy too, how the mighty have etc.

Re: Service Box Missing Older Models

I'm getting them, maybe they were doing some updates when you looked and it'll be ok now. Get back to us if it aint. Not that we could do very much if PSA decides to delete cars they no longer support... Note to self: Always set a UK proxy when trying to log into Service Box or you'll spend 10 minut...

Re: New 406 Owner

If it looks like a duck... It was known to my mates as the 2-liter Mess. Word of warning: If the cops ask why the roof of your car looks like someone's been jumping up and down on it, do not tell them you were dancing on it the other night when you were drunk, for some reason they just don't seem t...

Re: New 406 Owner

Perhaps it's more a case Monday morning Ford... Some people love 'em and I'd have thought they'd have had to have dealt with the "100k miles = death" manufacturing quality by now, or they'd have gone out of business long ago. I've only had 1 Ford myself, a 2.0 S Cortina, looked like crap but went li...
