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...

Dog Guards

Estate owners, were there any genuine Peugeot dog guards for the back of the estate? I have an excitable collie pup and don't want her clambering into the front of the car. Interested to see what is out there, there are plenty of universal ones but I've had those before in the 305 they tend to leave...

Volvo V70

I got myself a Volvo, a 2004 V70 D5 with 47,000miles. https://image.ibb.co/iB2H2m/IMG_1699.jpg https://image.ibb.co/cvMc2m/IMG_1700.jpg https://image.ibb.co/nOMANm/IMG_1703.jpg Just drove it back home, it averaged a touch over 44 mpg, i was impressed with how solid these feel but yet still ride real...

Re: Autobox on a HDi

The automatic D5 seems thirstier on paper than the manual, the manaul, on the other hand, seems to be about the same as what the 607 does.

Re: Autobox on a HDi

I had a go in a HDi auto over here, it was a tad lethargic, and im driving a 607 at the moment... Modern autos seem fantastic, my dad has a Mercedes C220 with a 7 speed box which seems to always be in the right gear and its a struggle to get it to do under 50mpg. A bit of a different thought but see...

Autobox on a HDi

How good are the autoboxes on the 2.0 HDi engines?

I recently got a pup and am thinking of replacing my 607 with an estate either a 406 or Xantia, but have seen a few SE estates with the autobox. Just wondering if the diesels got the same 4HP20 box that the V6s got?

Re: HOW TO INSTALL A USB MODULE IN A CLARION CASSETTE PLAYER

I have installed one of these in my 607, £4 wasn't a bad price. The 607 radio is nearly identical to the 406 radio bar the front fascia, which doesn't have as easy an aperture to glue in the modules facia. Just a few pictures in focus to add some clarity: The two areas on the bottom of the radio mai...

Re: Warning to Photobucket Users

I wonder has the prevalence of facebook groups for various cars meant less traffic for forums? I find it handy when out in the shed to ask a question on a FB group using the phone rather than waiting to use a computer. Having said that then there is no secure place for good information or discussion...

The 406 is back together and ready for an Mot. One slight issue... while flushing out be old coolant into a bucket there were blobs of oil present, it was almost like grease in its consistency.

Re: Missing the 406

Got the aluminium part fitted, there is a bracket that sits beside it which holds the fuel rail, dipstick, engine cover and pipe bracket. This has to be removed and replaced with steel parts off a hdi 90 http://i908.photobucket.com/albums/ac289/406executiveHDI/406brakes/BA185561-4779-4566-803A-65155...

Re: Missing the 406

The rear pipe on this was held in with a bolt, subframe out and it still took a fair bit of stripping, seems the plastic part has a seal inside where it splits apart: http://i908.photobucket.com/albums/ac289/406executiveHDI/406brakes/E1022185-D434-4E8D-A07A-5849063FAFE1_zpsrpop51xt.jpg http://i908.p...

Missing the 406

I am going to put my 406 back on the road, the 607 is a grand big barge for peanuts but they are by no means an entertaining machine to pilot, nor is mine particularly easy to run. Some recommissioning is ongoing. The brakes require going over i have new disks and pads, rebuild kits for the rear cal...
