Re: and today i have mostly been...

Reflecting on how quiet things have got hereabouts. Collected my new trailer today & stashed it in the campervan's storage spot for now. (Overpriced few square yards of derelict WW2 airfield c/w fences & cctv - someone had the luck or foresight to snap up). https://i.imgur.com/Eb0Qd8G.jpg https://i....

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Sounds like a result with the hose - my 406's aircon and my bro's power steering both did a year or two with similar repairs.

Re: Diesel gearbox in V6

The 407 gearbox will probably fit, but it may well be geared for 17" or 18" wheels and so might not give you the result you are looking for.

Re: New car suggestions

Hope your daughter found it easier with twins than us. Pure hell.... And no sleep. Not to mention a massive leak in my wallet. I don't really think so - my wife used to stay overnight with them 2 or 3 times a week so both parents could a get a night's sleep. IIRC that went on for about 6 months or ...

Re: Diesel gearbox in V6

Hello & Welcome to the forum. 8) I have moved your post as requested. It might help if you give details of your current engine and gearbox, (or the VIN code so we can find the information on service box) http://public.servicebox.peugeot.com/ Also, which gearbox do you want to use? - HDi 90 is lower ...

Re: New car suggestions

Congratulations on your recent arrivals. My daughter has twin 4 year-olds and a 6 year-old. They manage, (just) with a 307 hatchback + roofbox for holidays. They've had that car since the eldest was born, so it's managed all the various baby seat/carrycot/pushchair combos + dog so it's surprising wh...

Re: front springs Question

I've encountered a few of these outfits I'd like to blow up recently, specially the one that tried to move back into lane 1 while his van was still beside my door.... Sorry, rant over, The clearance looks fine to me. Wish I'd had the foresight to spend enough on my 406 to keep it tickety-boo. :mrgre...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Any of the hydraulic hose outfits should be able to help, 'we' (before I retired), used to get one of them to make similar-ish things up on site. Maybe if you crossed one of their guys palms with silver..... The car manual download function on service box describes a bluetooth RT5 for Jan 2009 on ca...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Don't really know how much battery capacity I need - it's a question of how long you want to be able to survive comfortably without a campsite / mains power. It won't actually let you run much off the batteries - lighting, tv, 12V sockets is about it. It's got an inverter but using it for anything a...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I guess retrievers last a bit longer than I realised. Our first dog when I was a kid was a 'flat coated retriever' which I think is a pretentious name for a labrador/retriever cross. He lasted till about 11 years old which was a good few years more than the following 3 labradors. Anyways yours look ...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

......And thus the latest Plan A is to be able to do 300 miles in in on Thrusday... Going somewhere nice? Best of luck with it. Those pipes look similar to the ones used on a 406 for A/C connections onto the compressor and some of the power steering pipework, (if memory serves, since I don't have o...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Them retrievers will be the better for a trim in this heat, how old are they now? Kittens look a fair bit bigger, guess that enables more extreme shenanigans. Dealt with a few wasps nests over the years but nothing like 'your' hornets. Well done, hope that's the end of the story. (I have this mental...

Re: How to undo the auxiliary belt excentric roller bolt?

A few years back I repaired the alternator on my daughters 807, using a kit of parts, (bearings, slip-ring assembly, brushes etc). that cost £9 from a guy in Ireland after watching his how-to video on youtube. (Could never have stripped it down without wrecking it prior to watching the video). Conve...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Thanks for the tip, may explain disappointing mpg too.
I'll try to get my finger out and sort it.
Towbar fitting fills today's agenda.

Anyone else for a meet, possibly "Oop north"?
