Re: New car suggestions

IIRC Sam had a Dacia and liked it. (I have no idea what size they are.)

A former colleague wanted a 4x4y thing and and he was very sensible and got himself a Kia or something like that.
But when he found out he liked it he ditched it for a V8 rangerover.

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Finally got it up on the ramp. So a previous repair has been bodged rather badly. They used some quite stiff plastic hose and left it rubbing against the driveshaft.

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Hard drive replacement "should" be straightforward... but I think we said that before. I'd be surprised if you could find an RT5 with bluetooth; they are the holy grail! There's a guy on the 407 Facebook group who's been after one for months, and it's unclear how much loom is different with bluetoot...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Been to see Mechanic yesterday and he says he's scheduled it for Tuesday. He's an expert in the folding hard tops and has been inundated since we had some warm weather, and I guess that's nicer work. I'm anticipating being asked to find a replacement pipe, but ServiceBox doesn't seem to list one so ...

Re: HOW MANY MILES HAS YOUR PUG COVERED?

198,500 on the 407 today. Got it at 74,000 (6.5 years old). Had it for 5.5 years. 86k on the 406 when I got it (and it was only 3 years old). Took it to 205k. Had it for 8 years. I still miss the arm rest. The 406 was definitely in better condition when I got it than was the 407. At 200k and 12 year...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

The docs from ServiceBox available via c6owners.org state JSW3309 so its having this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252154965984 What I've read suggests that it has a 9L capacity but only 4L is drainable beause the rest is in the torque converter. Ideally, yes, I need to find a way of doing it so that ...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

I read that as RHF which I believe is what most 2.0 407s are. Without a DPF in X-Line and Zenith trim levels! I think it's basically the 2.0 block with the 16 valve head and VNT from the 2.2 406s, but with a Siemens or Delphi injection system. I believe it's the Delphi that doesn't have the intercoo...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

It's the 2.7 V6 HDi which are known for dropping their coolant from any of: a metal pipe near the front passenger wheel that corrodes, split inlet manifold, split thermostat housing. And there's no level sensor (possible retrofit from a 407, but I noticed yesterday that most 407s don't have the leve...

The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Well maybe not quite that bad... but not far off. Plan A was to just turn up with it at Pugfest because I thought that would be funny, but that didn't come off so it's time to come clean. http://www.406oc.co.uk/download/file.php?mode=view&id=3632 http://www.406oc.co.uk/download/file.php?mode=view&id...

Re: Peugeot Festival 2019

That's unfortunate; I was looking forward to hearing more about America, the motorhome, and the C5.

Hope you get everything sorted out.

Re: 1.6HDi DV6 Engine - DPF questions

Every time you remove the fuel cap the fuel tank is dosed with a fixed amount of additive. The computer calculates the amount of additive remaining (there is no level sensor) and when it's run out you get a warning message. The additive builds up in the particle filter where it acts as a catalyst to...

Re: Anyone had a Smart Meter fitted at home?

IIRC domestic heating accounts for a larger proportion of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions than does road transport.
