Re: and today i have mostly been...

Guess it depends on which bit of the UK you're familiar with, loads of abandoned dwellings in Cumbria and the less populated bits of Scotland, (no doubt other places too). Rural France is much the same, the locals have no desire to own an old house in the country, they see it as risking high mainten...

Re: 2.0. v 2.2 Hdi engines.

My driving is mostly main road / m-way which clearly helps, but..... My first 2.2 HDi recorded 42/43 mpg and occasionally 45/6 in favourable conditions. I did 80k+ miles in it, mostly after installing the '180' map. Swapped to the current car in 2012, it was roughly 1 mpg better from day 1. Losing t...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

No problem here.
Since Croatia became the 28th member state of the EU in 2013, all H+S legislation is exactly the same as here.
However, in all member states apart from the UK, none of the above is ever applied therefore crack on.

Re: advice on caliper overhaul kits needed

Bad luck. :(
It does happen occasionally. The quick/dirty fix is a 2nd hand strut from a scrappy.

Re: Wheel Bearing roulette - Volvo woes

Suggest you put the spare on that corner just to rule out a tyre issue, (I've been caught out before).

Re: Wheel Bearing roulette - Volvo woes

I think you've got to let it get to that state to positively identify which side is the culprit.
Bet you a Poundworld gift token that when you get the old bearing off it seems OK, but the problem will be solved.

Re: My error codes

You really need PP2k to be sure, but 99% chance all bar the glowplug one will be additive related.
Trouble with generic codes is they're just that.

It's fairly common for the additive tank wiring to get ripped off, (sometimes the tank as well). MIght be worth a look.

Re: New member in south wales

+1 It'll start without glowplugs in the dead of winter. They only really give you smoother idling for the first half minute. Vacuum leaks are the main bugbear. Most people simplify the vacuum system as far as possible, (mine now only uses 1 of the original 5 solenoid valves). Masses of relevant info...

Re: Wheel Bearing roulette - Volvo woes

I remember having kittens about a very slight clicking noise that I though might have been the beginnings of a wheel bearing issue with the Xsara I had before the 1st 406. Only a tiny noise, but I was going on a holiday trip to Biarritz..... Eventually dawned on me they might be able to fix a Citroe...
