Rear door handle

The passenger side rear door handle on my estate has not opened from the outside or inside for a number of months. My dad borrowed the car for some estate car duties and when I got it back I walked up to the door in question forgetting about its fault and it opened. While opened I sprayed copious am...

Re: Gear lever failed

Problem Solved; While the cables were connected to the gear linkages on the box there is a bit further back a bracket that the cables presumably push against. This popped out, i think a clip held it in place, a couple of cable ties sorted it. Was a good excuse to get the yoke back on the lift to do ...

Gear lever failed

I have spent the past couple of days installing and wiring up a towbar in my 2.2 hdi estate, all was going well and i wanted to drive the car down to a trailer to test all worked. When driving it the gear lever suddenly felt as if something broke and it now seems to be stuck in 1st gear. The cables ...

No communication with engine ECU

I plugged PP2000 into someones 406 today as they are complaining about a lack of power (2.0 HDi 90), i know the 90s were never particularly potent but this one had no noticeable boost at all. PP2000 was unable to communicate with the engine ECU but seemed able to talk to all other modules.

Re: Odd idle speed behaviour

The cruise control works every time, on my old 110 it worked most of the time :lol: Might need to get pp2000 plugged in, the clutch itself seems to sink after a few days of driving the travel becomes reduced, requiring it to be pulled back up with the foot although the actuation of the clutch seems ...

Odd idle speed behaviour

My 406 (2.2 HDi) has a bit of an issue with its idle speed. Normally it sits at about 900-950 rpm but if i move the car and freewheel then brake the revs dip down to 600 rpm as if its about to stall. This would happen for example when reversing out of a parking space; the car is put into reverse, it...

Re: 2.2 HDi Estate

I paid £1550 for it, in the end, the seller didn't budge much but there is a year's MOT and it didn't look like too many things need done, it is in really nice condition. The fuel consumption between work and home, which is a 5-mile journey each way on back roads all under 40mph the trip computer is...

2.2 HDi Estate

I have returned to driving a 406, i went over to birmingham before christmas for this one with 112,000 on the clock and one owner from new. It came with 3 keys, the code card, a cigarette lighter that has never been used and the log book shows 1 previous owner. Hard to find this on a 406 now. https:...

Re: Do D8 V6 Head Gasket Kits exist?

Wasn't this engine used in a Volvo too?? Maybe someone here with the privelige* of owning a Volvo could ask on that forum...??? That was the older PRV 90 degree v6, the ES 60 degree V6 never seen service in Volvos. It was used in the later XMs, 605s and Xantias. BGA might have some in stock, i thin...
