Shameful. Reckon Welly needs to cycle to work this week to make amends.

Re: 406 Back seat

Hi & welcome aboard, 8)

I'm guessing yours is a saloon?
I've only ever had estates, but someone who knows should happen along soon.

Great result with your MOT. :cheesy:

Re: 406 2.0 hdi Cambelt change mileage?

Must've changed a dozen or more timing belts over the years. Don't recall ever seeing one that didn't look perfect.
That's why it's called preventive maintenance I guess.

Likewise, thought you'd been a bit quieter of late. Hope you turn the corner soon.

Next ultimate man cave update awaited with keen anticipation.

Re: Suspect rear wheel bearing problem

Thanks for the info young man. It's just dawned on me that this probably means a set of backplates too. :roll: Anybody seen a better deal than these on fleabay? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PEUGEOT-406-SALOON-ESTATE-COUPE-LEFT-REAR-BRAKE-DISC-BACKPLATE-SPLASH-GUARD/323318773900?fits=Model%3A406&hash=i...

Suspect rear wheel bearing problem

Hi folks, The dogmobile has had a slight knock from the rear end for some time, which I assumed would be a droplink. It's changed a bit in the last month or two to a regular knocking noise, particularly when steering very slightly to the right, accompanied by a slight but noticeable droning noise at...

Re: 406 2.0 hdi Cambelt change mileage?

I believe the 'correct' interval is 90k miles / 5 years. I have seen various mileages quoted, 72k, 80k, 90k but all seem to insist on 5 years. It's sensible to change, (or at least examine and consider changing the idler & tensioner pulleys). Maybe swap the aux drive belt too - I did the aux belt te...

Re: 508

Interesting. I've looked at 508's particularly estates as well and am frankly baffled by PSA marketing logic which originally dictated that manual estates only came in poverty spec with 2 versions the 1.6 timebomb "engine". They later relented to permit a mid-spec 2.0, but no hope of a top spec 2.2 ...

Latest expedition

Mrs Doggy & I got back from camper van shopping around most of western Europe at the weekend. a trip that nearly didn't happen as the Dogmobile started slowly losing coolant on our recent jaunt to Devon. I still haven't sussed where its going - best guess is a leaky water pump. It's due another timi...

Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

On my 2003 2.2 HDi the speed signal comes from the ABS sensors, BUT the signal from the final drive is used by the Satnav and the BSI for detecting the threshold for auto door locking, auto wipers, (swap to intermittent at standstill), increased idle speed etc. It doesn't have to make sense. :roll: ...

Just to prove you're not completely on your own here..... Don't know if available in your manor Steve, but DeWalt kit is our weapon of choice at work, seem to be the best price/longevity compromise. I think they're re-badged Black & Splutter power tools, but to be fair their industrial stuff was alw...

Re: Brake fluid loss

Not sure if this is practical, but there is a sheet metal cover over the lower part of bell housing that you can clearly see from underneath. Not sure if you can remove or at least loosen it without disturbing much else?

Edit: PS what's rain?

Re: D9 wanted

Maybe, but I think you'll need the turbo, wastegate, vacuum stuff to control it, intercooler, MAP sensor, boost pipes, most likely the engine bay wiring loom, (could be quite a few other bits too). You would probably need to swap the ecu, BSI and the key transponder as a set so the 90 'thinks' it's ...

Very popular colour. :wink:

Only realistic option is a remap, about 125 bhp achievable at reasonable cost.
HDi Tuning have a good reputation from what I hear.
