Re: New member

Strut top bearings are a fairly common issue, possibly leading to snapping a front spring.
Jack both front wheels off the ground and you should be able to hear where the issue is as you, (or better yet an assistant), twiddle the steering wheel.

Today I've amazed myself by getting recalcitrant Labrador to use a dog ramp to get in & out of the car twice. :cheesy: Some compensation for waiting over 3 weeks for it to show up, failing to get a delivery date after chasing several times, giving up and buying a 2nd hand one on Fleabay for £13.60. ...

Re: New to forum and just bought a 406!

Hi Tom & welcome aboard. 8) My bro used to run his 1.9 on WVO without any modifications, at least in warm weather. The key thing is filtration. You need to be super fussy over filtering the stuff before it goes in the car's tank. Even then you should expect more frequent fuel filter changes and be p...

Re: my fuel guage goes up when i top up but never goes down

I don't think so. I believe the BSI receives the 'raw' reading from the tank sender unit and sends a 'smoothed' version to the clocks.
